Question about Gateway Computers & Internet

I have a Gateway One Model GZ7220. When it powers down the fan starts once the power is off and runs continously. I don't think it ever runs when the Gateway One is on. Can you help?

After shutting down take off the power cord from the power supply, wait 10 secs and plug back in. If the problem persists let me know because than it might be a different issue.

Wow that is strange. When the power supply turns off there cant be any more power.
Are you sure you dont log off or go to stand by? My computer does that to. Since I reinstalled windows my cpu fan stays running and my 2 case fans. Just go to power options to adjust your standy by options.

Hello strabley,
Have you ever cleaned the inside of your computers? Close it down completely disconect the power source, open the side panel and wit a compressed air can clean the fans and remove all dust accumulated on the peripherals ,
You should see some chromed screws on the back panel take them out and slide the side panel towards the back see the gateway tutorial here http://support.gateway.com/s/tutorials/Tu_842243.shtml
Hope this helped

Gateway GT5082 will not load. It powers up, power on light is lit, harddrive and dvd drive flash at the same time. CPU fan runs continous nothing loads.


Try starting in SAFE mode first by pressing F8 repeatedly as you poweq up and see if it wil start in safe mode.

If so remove any recently installed hardware or programs and then re-start

Let me know how you get on

Gateway GT4010 boots then starts beeping and shuts off


First check your power supply section and check your power fan that is running properly. if ok then the suspected area is your processor section. please check it if its collar fan nor running properly then clean up or change that. and the other advice is please check your processor pin which are too tiny. be careful about these.

Sounds like an overheating problem. May want to remove the processor and check the heat sink material. While you have it out you can clean the fan and the heat sink. Make sure your air flow isnt blocked in any way and neaten up the cables if necessary. You could also consider adding another fan.

I have a gateway 835gm desk top


there are a number of things that could be wrong here, firstly reset the cmos on the motherboard, if you cannot find the cmos jumper then remove the battery for 10 minutes (make sure the power cord is removed from the back) press the on/off button a couple of times, this will drain any remaining power from the board and properly reset the cmos, while the battery is out remove the memory, clean the contacts and repace, put the battery back in and connect power, if the machine turns on, job done, if not then it could be something far more serious, check the power suppy if could be faulty, the processor may have blown or the motherboard itself may have blown, the only way to check all the components at once is to get a working motherboard which supports your processor type, the same model would be an advantage

GT5032 W/XP Media Edition


Try unplugging and opening the PC and removing the mainboard battery. *It's about the size of a quarter, a little thicker though" Hit the power button about 5 times. (Mind you this will reset ther board to factory settings and you will have to go into set-up and set the time back) plug the pc back up and you may be in buisness.
Hope this helps!

Gateway One Fan Problem


Hi, there is a possibility that the fan is self is defective or power supply cannot supply the fan completely thats why when you turned it on you never hear it running. ICheck the fan connection if is properly connected then using a voltmeter check the voltage supply in the fan it should be +12V or you can replace the it with a reliable one so that you can determin if the fan is defective or not.
