Gateway all in one touch screen went all black one long and two short beeps.what happened
Ok first turn the power off at the wall & disconnect the power cable, now open your computer. Once open if you do not have an ani-static strap simply touch the case to discharge any static and keep your hand there. Whilst you have one hand on the case with the other hand gently press down on the ram & any add-on cards to ensure they are seated fully, secondly again whilst still holding the case with 1 hand make sure that all other connectors such as power, hdd, etc & all connections to the motherboard are fully seated. Then after you have done all this plug you power cable back in and re-connect the power cable to mains & try restarting your computer if it starts as normal then it was one of the components had creeped up with the cycling up & down of the pc this is a normal thing due to expansion & contraction of the metals etc that make the components up inside your pc. If this hasn't helped then turn it off at the wall again & disconnect power cable from the wall & computer then you can take out all add-on cards & add the power back to the system & start up your pc if it doesn't start then it is the hdd has either failed or become corrupted & will either need to be recovered professionally or repaired or replaced it is cheaper to replace a hdd than to have it repaired. Yet if you computer starts then shut down add 1 add-on card back to the system & start up if it starts with that add-on card continue to add the add-on cards back in until it fails that's if it a case of an add-on card failing. If it is an add-on card that has failed simply purchase a new add-on card & install remember to remove the old add-on card prior to adding a new 1 unless it is the exact same add-on card to avoid conflicts.
