Gateway shuts off

Gateway 510 xl media center pentium 4 ht 2.8, shut down within 30 seconds or faster of turning on. No beeps, if I remove the memory you get 3 beeps and it doesnt cut off, put the memory in and turns off again. This is new memory pc3200. Is this a motherboard issue? It has the midway 2 board.

My computer Gateway model GM5472 was running a windows update and all of a sudden went blue screen then shut down. Would not come back on when turned power but on you just here some beeps. what should I...


Beeps signal a hardware failure. Disconnect all disks and remove all other boards and try to start the desktop like that - if you can't go into the BIOS then there is a problem with either the memory (try another one) , the processor (try another one) or the mainboard - in that case you will have to replace it.

My gateway profile 4 desktop will not power on. nothing happens when I push the power button. measured 12v at the computer end of power cord. switch look ok. worked fine yesterday.


Hi,

Remove the power cord and then take out the battery. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds, then plug in just the AC powercord and try turn the laptop on.

If it turns on let it boot into the operating system and then shut it down and put the battery back in.

Hopefully this will resolve the problem but if it doesn't turn on again with the battery in there is a problem with the battery.


Post back if you need more advice.


Good luck.

My gateway 510x keeps shutting itself off. Sometimes after 5 minutes of booting up sometimes after 30 seconds. What could be the problem? Tried removing dust from the inside but that did not help.


sounds like your processor fan shut down and now your processor itself shuts off when it begins to over heat replace fan asap and don't keep trying to turn it on because you'll burn it out

Beeping when started


More than likely your memory or display adaptor are not properly seated in their slots. Try uninstalling and re-installing the memory first, then do the video card, if you have one and possibly the sound card also. My first reaction is that the memory is being tested at startup and fails. Hope this helps.

My error; my Gateway is GM5688E. The monitor shuts


Try to determine first whether its a no video problem from the computer or the monitor. Try a known good working monitor and see if the monitor still shuts off, if it does then you know the problem lies within the computer. If it doesn't shut off then you know your original monitor is bad.

Turning on my gateway 510 x PC I get a black screen/white cursor


Did you make any changes recently (add memory, etc.)? Does it make any beeping noises on startup? I've had this problem occur when putting in the wrong type of memory. If you haven't added memory and there is beeping on startup, find the manufacturer of the MOBO and you should be able to find a beep startup code to tell you what the issue is.

Delay in Monitor display once the system goes in sleep mode


Instead of sleep mode, tyr hibernate. It is generally faster except the whole computer shuts down. When you power back up, you're exactly where you were. Mine takes about 30 seconds.
