!) how old is the *cough cough i cant believe you bought a gateway cough?2) have you opened the case to see if there is a **** ton of dust on thie inside? maybe your processor is overheating because the heatsink fins the dissapate the processor's heat are caked with dust? the processor overheating will cause these symptoms exactly... with a pc other than gateway. with a agateway you can never truly tell what it is because they **** so bad. but the first place to look is the inside. clean out that dust and the freezeups and random turn offs will stop. if there is no dust, then do a checkdisk on your harddrive, tho i doubt it is the cause of the random turn offs. the only other thing that would cause random turn offs if there is no dust is a motherboard that sucks, i mean is going bad or bad already. clean out that dust!

I ahve a gateway 5662 desktop, when I power it up, the processor boots inconsistently, sometimes I get a blue screen, what do I do to amend this?

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps

Once i connect my gt5662 to a monitor nothing is on the screen, i know the monitor is in fine condition, i realize the graphics card it came with has 2 different slots, should i buy an adapter an hook the...

Did the computer boot to a monitor before? Is this a new monitor for this computer? The GT5662 came with an ATI Radeon HD2400 PCI-e video card. There is also an onboard VGA port on the back of the computer. The VGA port should be disabled. The ATI Radeon HD2400 PCI-e video card comes with two DVI connectors. With the back of the computer facing you, you would use the one on the right. You would have to have an DVI to VGA adapter to use them unless your monitor has a DVI connector also. Hope this helps. This is what the VGA and DVI connectors look like. _498.jpgmoz-screenshot.png

SOunds like an overheating issue or the power supply isnt sufficient. Have you done any upgrades to it lately?
Try dusting out the case and adding an extra fan or two if your computer case can oblige.
