Came home to find it off, tried to power up, fan runs 3 seconds, no power light, then off


Try first to unplug the power cord at the back of the CPU then press the power button for 5 seconds while the power cord is unplug. This will clear the remain power from the capacitors on the power supply. Once done, re-connect the power and try to power the computer back on.

If still not, then this is a power supply issue. What you can do is to open the case, make sure power cord is not connected and you have done the above step again to ensure that there is no electric current remaining. Once done, trace the connection from the power supply connecting to the motherboard and unplug it. Please check for the lock clipping it from the motherboard. once removed, again press the power button for 3 seconds. Then reconnect everything and power the computer back on.

If still not, then this is really a power supply issue and it should be replaced.

Thanks,

Your power supply cables may not be fully secured. Let's unplug and reconnect your power supply
  1. Disconnect the power cord from the back of your console. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet and the power supply unit.
  2. Reconnect the power cord to the console. Then plug the power cord back into the wall outlet and the power supply unit
  3. Make sure that all three connections are firmly secured.
  4. Turn your console back on.
  5. Check the light on the power supply. If this solution worked, your power supply light will be green....

Replaced power supply cleaned everything


Wow, that's crazy, because I would have bet it was the power supply too. I would measure the new supply voltages, just to make sure it isn't bad too. Next, unplug all extra devices except your motherboard and hard drive. This will eliminate them from the problem, and if one of them is bad, you'll know. Hard drive is probably good, but when the computer initializes the cd, dvd drive, etc., it overloads the power supply and it shuts down, as they're designed to do. Could be a part of the motherboard, but don't think so, just doesn't sound like it. Might be monitor, notice if the computer shuts down just after it turns on. Check the speaker wires to make sure they're not shorted (if happens once in a blue moon). I don't think connecting to MSIE 8 shut it down, but that's the onery thing about computers- you just never know till you know. An afterthought, is since I guess you were having problems before (hence changing the power supply), you could have gotten infected with a bug of some kind, that left it's mark in your bios. In that case, you have to reflash your bios, or have it replaced (on older machines). If it comes to that, you might google the problem of flashing your bios on your Gateway, and see what comes up. Good luck, I had a blue screen problem once similar to this, and just scrapped the system for a new one.

R-button on wireless 360 controller acting funny


Sounds like a dodgy trigger to me, maybe became damaged from shipping etc, take it back to the store you bought it from and state your problem, they should either fix the problem for you or supply you with another 360 pad free of charge.

Power cord connection issue---we have tried different power cords. Issue is where it connect to set. The power will come on, but the set will shut off


This failure might not be in the power cord but the internal power supply. If your LCD is older then 15-18 months for sure it needs a power supply replacement.
Symptons of a failing power supply are:
1- Set does not powers ON.
2- Turns OFF by itself.
3- Needs to be unplug to make it powers ON again.
4- When the set is ON, it produces a humming noise through the speakers.

You can find a power supply replacement visiting this website and you should be able to replace it yourself.

Will not power on, makes static noise just as you


First off how long have you owned the unit? Bose has pretty good manufacturer warranties. Usually several years up to 5 or 10 sometimes. Once I have more information I will assist you further. It sounds like either the amp or something else may be defective inside the unit.
Thanks,
Lee

Not powering on


In all actuality, it shouldn't make a difference. But there are select cords out there that may have a short or deliver the wrong voltage. That is why in the Sony warranty it says that the warranty is void if you use a cable thatisn't approved by Sony for use with the PS3.

So does the red standby light come on when you power on the toggle switch in the back?? If not then it is the power supply. You will need a new power supply installed.
If it does the old Green/Yellow/flashing Red when you push the front power button, the you have some motherboard problems and need to call Sony or sell it and get a new one, or find the problem and fix it.
Hope this helps. Good luck and happy gaming!!

My computer keeps turning off while I'm playing a game both on & off line. It also turns off while I am running a Webroot Spy Sweeper on my computer. This also happens while both on & off line.


have you installed or replaced any hardware such as a video card, extra hard drive/DVD drive, etc? Generally computers will shut down when too much power is required but the power supply isn't able to handle it (PC companies manufacture computers so that they work with the bare minimum power supply wattage).

Also, make sure the outlet/surge protector you're using isn't faulty, and everything is securely connected inside the case (Hard drive/Optical drive cables, sound/video cards, RAM, power supply cables, etc)

do you still have your restore CD? try to fresh restore it and updates everything on that unit again. Often online gamers send you malicious script that crashes your system.
