Question about Gateway GT5220 PC Desktop
When I turn the computer on it beeps every four or five seconds. Sometimes the screen comes on, yet just a mess of colors and some times it is gray. It does not respond to the key board or mouse. I did make sure both where plugged in properly. I can not shut the computer down, it does not respond to Ctrl/Alt/Del, nor will it turn it off with the power button.
Any assistance will be appreciated.
Press and HOLD the Power button for 5 seconds ...this will turn off computer ......her's a list of beep codes http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm
These may help !
Try a different keyboard /mouse if you can /make sure NO pins are bent or missing on PS2 connection .....
When booting up computer hold the DEL key down this will take you into the BIOS.......Select LOAD DEFAULTS usually F10 ...you'll see it on bottom of screen .....Save when prompted and see if it boots......Good luck
