Question about Gateway FX7026 PC Desktop

Open Question

I HAVE GATEWAY FX7026 FOR ALMOST THREE YEARS . TWO WEEKS AGO,MY GATEWAY FX7026 DOES NOT TURN-ON. REPLACED THE POWER SUPPLY BUT THE PROBLEM IS THE SAME. UPON TURNING IT ON THE MICROPROCESSOR COOLING FAN JUST MOVED for 1 or 2 TURNS , THEN IT WILL STOP. I WILL TURN OFF THE COMPUTER AND THEN TURN IT ON AGAIN, BUT THIS TIME THE MICROPROCESSOR FAN IS NOT ROTATING. I WILL UNPLUG THE POWER CORD AND WAIT FOR SOME MINUTES TO PLUG IT ON AGAIN. THE MICROPROCESSOR FAN WILL TURN AGAIN AS THE PREVIUS ONE THEN STOPS IMMEDIATELY. IF I CONNECT THE POWER PLUG WITHOUT TURNING ON THE COMPUTER, THE "SB=LED1" IS ON. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM? I ALREADY REMOVED THE OTHER DRIVER POWER CONNECTION TO ISOLATE THE PROBLEM BUT STILL MY COMPUTER DOES NOT TURN-ON. IS THE MICROPROCESSOR NOT WORKING WELL OR I NEED TO REPLACE MY MOTHERBOARD. MY COMPUTER HAVE THE FOLLOWING:(1) INTEL CORE 2 QUAD Q9300 QUAD CORE PROCESSOR IN THE MOTHERBOARD (2) Video Card NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT Overclocked (3) Windows Vista 64 Bit Home Premium (4) SATA Hard Drives (5) Intel Schroeder Town G33 Motherboard (marked in the motherboard is DG33SXG2). I will appreciate it very much if you can help me with this problem.

SOURCE: Updating my GT5464

The 8800GT will work and the GT5464 is a core 2 Processor motherboard. But why put such a high grade video card into a motherboard that will only take two gig memory? If you are a gamer which most likely you are, by you wanting a 640mb video card. My I suggest looking into a motherboard that will take two video cards. I found one for a co-worker that came was a complete PC with two 512mb video card for $400.00. new. Less the hard drive and burner. Running dual video is where the gamers are going to. Plus you can up grade to Quad. You can't up the GT5464 to Quad.

SOURCE: Profile 5 shuts off on its on

Sound either like a Overheating or a Power Supply Unit issue. You may need to clean the thermal gel off the CPU and heatsink with a small amount of rubbing alcohol and apply new gel. Make sure your fans are working correctly and make sure there isn't any dust under the fan on the heat sink it self, as this will cause overheating issues... Also, if you suspect the PSU you can usually get a nicer one than you have now for $50, so it is better to go ahead and replace it if it is old. The pop sound makes me lean more towards the side of power / PSU but this sound could simply be from the hard drive lossing power suddenly.

Gateway fx7026.....beeps three times on startup then reboots? Reason?


Test your PSU or replace it

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

hope this helps

Our Bose Wave music system has stopped working - it is 5 years old - suspect a power supply problem - other than the three screws - how does one remove the cover without breaking it?


Hi,
Our bose wave system stopped working also. The remote wouldn't work, it wouldn't turn off nothing. So finally we re-set it by clicking the button on the power strip it was plugged into.
It then worked! we had a power glitch a few weeks ago and think that had something to do with it. I hope this helped, and helps others!

I purchased the set in 2000 so it is seven years old. This is the first problem. Could it be all three of the bulbs? Could it be all three of the bulbs? no as you say that sound is ok that means your power supply &high voltage section is ok. please check chroma ic luminance section or system control section stand by ckt ihanks

Plasma tv GTW-P42M102


Sorry to tell you a common problem with these sets. It is a bad capacitor in the main power supply.. There are really about three of them that go bad from time to time to cause this problem... If your not a tech you should find an authorized repair facility as a non authorized is not going to know what to do to fix it and it will most likly cost you double to repair. Good luck and let us know how you got it fixed.

PDP-4330HD


This exact same problem happened to me 2 weeks ago on my Pioneer PDP-4330HD, and it did indeed turn out to be the power supply. The good news is, you can get it fixed for free, because Pioneer actually recalled the power supply in this plasma and others a couple of years ago.

Here is a link to the announcement on their website concerning the recall. They say that they will do a free in home replacement of your power supply, but when I called the local pioneer repair place, I was told I would have to wait three weeks for an in-home appointment. I ended up taking it in myself, and it was fixed for free 2 days later. Now it works perfectly.

Here's the number to call Pioneer in case the link goes down:
