If the unit has lights and fans running when you try to start it up the the mobo does need to be replaced. if there is no activity the the power supply has to be changed out. always get two opinions when dealing with pc repair shops to make sure your not getting scammed

SOURCE: My gateway GT4016 does not turn on, I brought it

About 4 years old, right?
My first test is to dust out the thing and try a new power block. (About $35 if you have to buy one - I have a spare kicking around for this)
If it still fails to turn on AT ALL, it is likely the motherboard
If it boots but does not startup properly, you may have a bad hard drive. See if it will boot to the CDROM (DVDROM)
Bad memory causes the computer to start but emit a series of beeps from the PC speaker.

Motherboard repair follows:
Look for metal cylinders wrapped in plastic (Capacitors). Look at the tops. Are any of them slightly or prominently rounded? These need replacing.
Get an experienced friend who can solder with a GOOD soldering iron. VERY CAREFULLY, replace the capacitors with the correct voltage, value and temperature rating. It is extremely easy to damage the motherboard.
No other reasonable repair for a motherboard.

Gateway GT4016 boots but nothing shows on the monitor


Without more specific information it is hard to tell. Did you just buy a new video card? Is it the the right type? Where did you get the second card? Have you tried it in another PC or talked to the store you got it from? Maybe the source can test it. Your PC can take an optional PCI express x16. Make sure you are using the right display adapter expansion slot. Note: PCI-e is not the same as PCI-X. They are not compatible. You want PCI-e.

Where do I get a system recovery disc for a gateway GT4016??


Well the quick and dirty answer to this would simply be to order a replacement set directly from Gateway

If you check in with different computer repair centers in your local area, you can also check in with them, see if the technicians there keep a library of restore disks. I work at a tech shop myself, and we usually carry an extensive library of different restore disks for various notebooks and desktops.

Gateway GT4016 new video card not detected


Dude,

Its not entirely gateways fault but to some extent it is. What you need to do is:

1. check in bios if it has an option to switch from agp to pci for video if you got it switch it

go to safe mode uninstall the previous device reboot and see if the new one is getting detected or not

if its not auto detected try force installation from the cd

let me know how it goes

Gateway gt4016 problem


Check your monitor on another computer. If it is ok connect it to your bad computer. Open the CPU case and unplug all the data cables and power cables to HDD, floppy and cd/dvd. Remove keyboard and mouse. also remove pci cards if any. You didn't mention about video card. I guess it is onboard. Now put it on an see. If nothing happens blame the motherboard.

Gateway GT 4016


it could be an electrical problem, but maybe not from your house. power companies sometimes have power surges that can fry a computer. if you go to any walmart and buy a surge protector, it should cure your problem, please note that there is a surge protector that offers a $10000 guarantee, so should you computer fry again turn that into that company that made it and get a new computer.
