Question about Computers & Internet
Gateway GT5220 bios works. If you enter the bios everything seems ok. However after exiting bios or just do.ng a normal boot the screen goes black. I dont believe the computer boots either . The power light is on and the fans are turning. I think it may be the video card(built into the MB.
If the issue was the video card then there would be no display. If there was any display it would be discolored.
Try unplugging any removable media that's hooked up to the computer. After that try to boot it up.
If it still doesn't go anywhere then you most likely have a power supply issue on your hands. try unplugging an unnecessary components inside the computer such as any CD/DVD drives and removing any cards installed. Pretty much everything but the motherboard and the hard drive. If it still doesnt boot properly then you might either have to buy a new power supply or a new motherboard as long as you know your hard drive is good.
The thing si if it was an issue with the hard drive you would get an error message. If you seemed to have left out any error messages please post them.
