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.

Cooling fan cannot get started by itself once it starts....if you give it a little touch it will start. Could it be the fan motor?


Hello,
Yes that sound exacly like a bad motor,by giving it a little help and it starts and runs that means power is at fan motor to let it run,it would not run if power wasnt there so since power is there everything else is fine and sending power to fanmotor and it just wont start. By replacing that fan it will run byself without and help. Reply back with EXACT model number and i'll give you the part number so you can get replacement motor. and while i think its the freezer fan motor your talking about?is it the freezer fan or the one by the compressor?

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

if your pc shuts down in 10 second with black sreen it means that your laptop memory was not detected. solution: reinsert your laptop memory (RAM) .. be sure to clean it especially at the contact points.

My desktop overheats when i play World Of Warcraft i think the fan may be broken is there anyway i can check this by opening it up ect


yes just be careful. I would recommend you power off the system. then disconnect the power cord. and take off the side cover usualy left side. you didn't mention model. once exposed examine with flash light and lightly test that each fan moves smoothly with no drag. you could plug back in and turn on do not touch anything once you do that. and observe. you should shut down and start up to rreplace cover as well.

My gateway computer do not turn on.the fan try to start and stop.what should be happenning?


I think that the CPU fan isn't working as it should and the CPU is overheating quickly. If the CPU is heating too fast, the mainboard is automaticly shutting down the all PC to prevent damage. Your thermal paste might be gone. Isn't the computer giving any sounds or LED flashes ?

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 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.
