Gateway a computer desktop has power but nothing on screen the computer doesn't have a tower


1) Computer doesn't have a tower? Means it is a 'pancake style' of desktop computer. A flat model.

2) No signal on monitor screen?
Good.
At least we know the monitor is good.

Problem is monitor cable, IF separate cable; or computer.

Computer isn't sending a video signal.
No Signal, Power Saver Mode, etc.

If an older CRT type monitor, (Looks like a small TV), and monitor cable is not detachable; use a known to be working monitor, and monitor cable.

If a separate monitor cable, use a monitor cable from a working computer, for a temporary test unit.
Put it back when deemed monitor cable is the problem.

Logic at this point, would deem something is wrong with the graphics chipset.
Whether mounted directly to motherboard, (Integrated), or a separate graphics adapter card. (Graphics/Video Card)

However, computer could be dirty inside, or have a bad Power Supply.

LED's (lights) light up? Maybe fans spin?
Means nothing.

1) If ALL of the Light Emitting Diodes were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor can use from 51 to 130 Watts of power.
Just depends on what Processor it is.

Older desktop computer?
Ummm, 35 to 40 Watts.

That is why LED's can light, and maybe fans spin, but no computer.
NOT enough power to turn the Processor on.

Computer needs to be CLEAN on the inside. Inside of Power Supply too, as well as possible.

Proper method to do this procedure, post back in Comment if you need guidance.

Also remove ALL Ram Memory modules, and clean gold plated contact pins on bottom; with pencil eraser.
Reinstall. Make SURE they are seated in tight, and Lock 'ears' are locked in place.

Post in a Comment, as to the model number.
Example, DX4300-05. Should be on back of computer.

Power blue light flashing when i turn the computer on


It depends on where the blue light is. Is the blue light on the monitor or on the computer tower? If it is on the monitor the monitor is having problems and needs to be serviced. If it is on the tower it could be an issue with the power supply.

That sounds like a picture tubeproblem and because to the cost of these old monitors it is cheaper just to buy a new flat screen than to try and repair that old one.

Computer won't turn on - consistent beeping, what could be wrong?


the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.
make sure that your RAM is securely seated
try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
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

Color is fading bright n dark


Could be your monitor is going bad, plug a montior into your computer, if the new monitor does not fade, then you found that the old monitor needs replacment, however if both monitors are fading, try to
Restart ur computer and get into the BIOS. check if the line is there also. then plug in an external monitor into the VA connector of the system and check if the line appears there also.

If in both the cases, there is a line, then the problem is with the video card. if the line is only seen on the notebook display, then the problem is with the built-in screen, which means you will need to get the screen replaced, or get a new monitor. Check ur warranties.

If the video card is found to be the problem, then depepnding on the video card (on-board or extendible) it will need to be replaced. Again, check ur warranties for any free service.

Hp w1907 monitor not detecting vgi input from original HP x3122 computer


It sounds like your computer has been having some trouble for some time. My hunch is that there is nothing wrong with the monitor at all.

Usually, when you see this warning on the screen that there is no signal, the monitor is trying to tell you that it cannot talk to the computer. This means the computer either a.) will not boot or b.) your video card in the computer has stopped working.

Does your computer make all the usual noises when you start it up? Can you hear the hard drive clicking and the fans come on?

Have you reseated the video connection on the back of the tower?

My guess is that something was going out before and it is now gone. The first place I would look to diagnose this problem is the hard drive.

Hard drives fade to fail sometimes, and when they are fading, the entire computer becomes painfully slow.

Hope this helps
good luck

My Gateway Computer Screen is faded ,everythink looks like on the screen ...for example- you print something and no paint in the printer and the colors letters.etc. hardly visible ....so my computer screen...


It sounds like the voltages set in the LCD driver color references are dead. Maybe if you open it up it will have a loose voltage divider or bad LCD clock/voltage distribution boss circuit. It can of course be that the transistors on the panel are themselves destroyed, but check the below first:

Set the resolution to the monitor's native resolution (1680x1050), and change the panel's brightness and contrast to try and improve things. If it's not glare, make sure the temperature is okay for operating the monitor and perhaps check the video source (another video card or such.) Did the monitor always have this problem?
