Take out the battery and only hook up the AC Adapter. Then try turning it on. If that doesn't do it try just one memory stick at a time in each slot one at a time and turn on the laptop after each reseat.

If those steps don't work then take out the DVD drive and turn on the unit. If that still doesn't work then go ahead and take out the hard drive. If the machine stays on then you know the hard drive is the culprit. If the laptop still turns off then that means the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

I have a 2004 Gateway 5200x computer. I can no longer change the background except for the color, the lists of background is frozen.


Then you have a copy of windows and not the original. I had same problem. Microsoft changes it until it doesnt go on anymore.

Gateway 507gr wont power on but looks like ps unit is good


Make sure you are plugging in your P.S. to Motherboard properly. This can happen if you are off by one pin on a 20 pin Supply on a 24 pin Motherboard. If you never opened the case and it just started happening, maybe one of your cards came out of its slot or your CPU Fan is not running.

GT5034 has power, blue light on power button, no beep, no boot, sounds like fan running hard. Hard drive light is on for a while and both CD drives green lights flicker. Nothing comes up on the monitor. HD...


powersource is good.motherboard might be the problem.harddrive can be tested by putting it in
another computer and see if it boot up.to test the mother board unhook the cd drives and harddrive.turn
on the computer and see if the gateway logo comes on.if it still does the the samething with everything unhooked
then it might be the bios.you might have to flash the bios and reinstall it.to do this i recommend you take it to a
shop.if the comp runs with everything still unpluged and stops then you know that you have a wrong
setting on the harddrive or cd drive.if you got two of anything make sure that you have a slave or master.if you nned me to
write a guide email me at gamecrazy944@yahoo.com or if you got anymore questions.

Fan is running, power button with blue light is off, cpu won't boot up


Your cpu might have died. As the computer is starting tap F8 and choose last known good configuration to see if you can get it started.

Will not turn on


Try the following:

Check that power supply is plugged in to a live source.

Certain models had an additional power switch on the power supply itself. This would be located to the rear of the computer within 3-4 inches of where the power cord plugs in. Make sure it's on.

Press the power button on the front panel.

Press the space bar. The computer may be in sleep mode..

Gateway desktops usually have a small 'reset' button on the front panel. Press it.

If it still doesn't respond, I'd need to know a little more info before moving forward.
  • Are there any lights lit? (K/B, front panel)
  • Can you hear a fan?
  • Does the monitor turn on?
  • What (if anything) has changed since it worked last?
  • What was the last thing you were working on?
  • What model is it?
  • What steps have you taken so far?
