Question about Gateway GT5404 PC Desktop
Husband was online, screen went black then a message stating that "Windows was not shut down properly or was not responding" then the message gave three options to restart Windows.
He tried to restart in Safe Mode but computer was froze, no keyboard function, computer fan was very loud. He tried to restart the computer but it wouldn't shut down, so it was unplugged and allowed to sit for 30 mins. Tried to restart Computer...Fan comes on and puter beeps three times, monitor displays color code thing (Red, Blue, Green) then goes blank and power light turns to yellow. No Keyboard response at all. We have unplugged printer, keyboard, monitor, and power source then plugged back in power source, monitor and keyboard...still nothing.
The computer is a 14 month old GT5404 with Vista
I have the same model after youlet it sit for a long enough period to cool down it will come back on and work normal, it is a cooling problem called gateway and they confirmed this theproblem I ran in to was what fan this computer has 3. temp fix I used was to remove the tower cover to allow better air flow try this till you can figure out what fan is messing up

Well you either have bad RAM, or a Video Card that has been faulty from looking around. best way to test is to get some new Memory stick(s) if the new ones run fine, then the one you took out was faulty and the video card is good.
If the computer still doesn't boot, then its a video card issue, and that means you'll have to get a new video card.
