Question about Gateway DX4640-UBC01A PC Desktop
Several different hardware failures can cause this type of issue. The
first step that should be taken is to verify that there are no lose or
disconnected wires coming from or going to the computer. If when
starting the PC your getting no power than there is an issue with the
power supply. If you are getting power to the PC than you should listen
for the beep code on start up. 1 beep after starting the computer
signifys that the power on self test (Also known as the POST) has
completed with out issue. When getting any other type of beep code you
should research the meaning of the code. Beep codes differ from company
to company. The best way to identify the meaning of a beep code is to
type the manufacture, model and number of beeps into Google. Another
possible issue is that your hard drive is corrupt. If this is the case
than your computer will pass the power on self test(POST) but will have a
message like MBR not found or one of many other errors. If you are
getting an error than it is also a good idea to research the error to
determine the proper fix. If the PC seems to boot correctly but there is
no image on the screen than the issue may be a result of a bad video
card. In that case the video card will need to be replaced.
Based on the way you described the issue I would say that it is most likely the power supply that has gone bad. This issue is very common and for most computer a new power supply will only run you about $20-$30.
I hope that information above has helped is some way.
If possible please rate this solution.
