I am trying to hook up to my new comp. and new internet and the lights come on for the wireless, wired and router r green then the modem light is red, what am i doing wrong


There is nothing wrong with your modem. There are modems that when you turn it on, the wireless, dsl lights are green while the power light is red then after a few seconds, the green lights disappear and the red light will turn green. After sometime green light will come back on. This means your modem is restarting and doing a self check.
If the power light stays red, then you a have a problem with your modem.

The red light is the indicator for the HDD activity , since it stop it's clear that the corrupted files were essential ones, that should have been loaded during the Windows boot process.
Your only thing left to do is to reinstall. If you're lucky you can get away with a Repair install, try it first.

My pc gets no power the flashing green light doesn't come on no fan nothing happens when i press the power button


best guess bad motherboard or bad power supply.

things to test:

1. Check that the power cord is plugged in snugly to the back of the computer and connected to a working power outlet or surge protector.

2. Check that the power cord is good. Replace if needed

3. Have the computers power supply checked. Replace if needed

4. Have the motherboard checked. Replace motherboard or get a new computer your choice.

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.

Computer has a red lite on, and very slow, now wont let me send emails or chat online.


The red light indicates that the hard drive is working (writing or reading data).  It is normal for this to flicker when the computer is running.  However, if it is on constantly or close to it, it can indicate the activity of unwanted programs (spyware or virus).  
Spyware is the most likely reason you also cannot send emails or chat online.  I would recommend bringing your computer in to a tech somewhere that can perform a virus/spyware clean for you.

Led light


The light that used to stay on all the time is most likly the Power light(LED) The light that used to flash when you were using the computer is the  HddLED(Hard disk drive Light Emitting Diode) If you mixed them up it wil likly only light the wrong light.    I hope this helps.  If you wish to be sure you may be able to download the owners manual  the manufacture ?
