Scepter tv wont always power up sometimes does sometimes try ten times to make it come on


Fault to the main power supply regulator board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

I have a gateway profile 5.5. Sometimes it will turn on, boot up and then turn itsself off. Sometimes the power putton will not operate but if I unplug the power from the PC, it sometimes will then boot...


You can have a shop try the power supply, they probably have some laying around. If it is not the power supply, you should look at system replacement.

I added a new video card and the monitor wont come on


1) Did you plug the monitor into the graphics card?

(Hey, happens! Sometimes in our zealousness to see what that baby will do, we mess up a little)

2) Did you install the Drivers? First?

These will be on the installation disk that comes with the graphics card.
Recommend installing the software from the disk FIRST, then turn the computer off, unplug from power, install the graphics card.

3) Does the graphics card require additional power?

Some graphics cards will not receive enough power, from the graphics expansion slot they are inserted into.

[Gateway GM5084 uses a PCI Express x16 slot, for best graphics.

Some powerful graphics cards require additional power cables from the Power Supply.

My gateway desktop PRB 510S, if I turn it off and unplug it or electricity goes off, the computer wont start back again. Wont do anything. No lights no fan, nothing. Then 5 to 10 minutes after I turn it on...


Try connecting a different power supply to it. If the same situation repeats, then it's an internal (motherboard) problem. If the problems go away, then the power supply needs to be replaced.

6 years... I'm surprised the PSU even lasted that long! The power supply is the cheapest part of the PC and usually one of the first parts to fail. Don't worry, a replacement power supply is not too expensive. Good luck!

After a power outage, tried to power computer. All I got was flashing keyboard and power light while I held in the power button. As soon as I let go, everything goes dard. No start up sounds or anything....


Sounds like it could be the power supply was damaged from the power outage. If you have another PC you could pull the ATX power supply out and install it in the gateway and see if it boots up. Power supplies are fairly inexpensive so look for an aftermarket one...buying a replacement from Gateway will cost alot more. If the power supply turns out to be good then remove one device at a time the try to boot up. Sometimes a bad cd-rom drive or harddrive can cause a problem. My best guess it is the power supply.

Gateway 831gm not booting. Fans come on but no boot process.


2 questions:
When you say new motherboard do you mean an actual new motherboard or new to that machine, but came from another used model?
When you say you tested the power supply do you mean with a voltmeter/ammeter or put it in another computer and it worked?
I worked on several gateways with similar problems and it boiled down to motherboard issues.
I tested it by replacing the power supply with a bigger (used) power supply and it worked great (for 1 time) and then put the other power supply back in to confirm my diagnosis and yep it wouldn't boot. The next morning I was going to run some virus/malware cleanup and installed the other (known good) power supply and it would not work. I tried all day to get it to boot and it did about twice in a 4 hour period. When it did run it would run great but any attempt to restart it would cause it to crash. No ryhme or reason, it would not fail the same way more than twice. Sometimes beeps, other times no beeps, sometimes it would start up with no video (could hear the Windows starting sounds) other times it would start up normal. I could let it sit and it would start or I could keep trying in sucession and it would eventually start. Some times the fans would slow down from a roar, sometimes they wouldn't. So with a known good power supply that had 150 more watts than the original I diagnosed it as a failed motherboard. But if you have put in a brand new motherboard then I would replace the power supply, because a bad power supply does not mean no power, just not enough power. Please post back and let us know what you find out.
