Gateway GM5442 PC Desktop Won't Boot!


3 BEEPS -RAM

Guest Posts: n/a 01-24-2005 We had a power failure in the office this weekend. All the systems are back
up and running fine, except for the receptionists. It's a Gateway
Professional Series. P4 1.3 Ghz. It is giving me three beeps. No boot up
screen and no video source (monitor light stays yellow instead of turning
green). I looked up the beep code and it says three beeps means the ram
needs reseated. Which I have done several times. Also, I have just put in
one stick in difference seats. I have also reseated all the cards at least
three times. I have switched the jumper to try to boot into setup mode.
Nothing there either. Popped out the cmos battery and put it back in. No
good either.

Has all the ram been fried? The fan on the cpu is still spinning. The cd-rom
ejects. I can't hear the hard drive spinning. I guess I can swap the hard
drive for a different one.

Anything I'm missing? YEP

HP/Compaq P4 2.8 GHz Desktop PC alarm is going off. my computer won't start up and there is a 'light bulb' icon that is flashing red


This is a Beep code for Memory Failure or System board failure. Mostly this should be due to RAM ( System Memory ) failure. Try reseating the Memory.
There will be two Memory modules in the system, try booting with only memory module and if it works. the swapping of memory does not help, the system board must be faulty.

Motherboard ID Motherboard Name Compaq Evo


as long as it is a socket 478 processor which narrows it down to P4 or celeron ( P4 being better and faster ) it should be fine.
Obviously it will state what processors it can handle in the computer manual so if you find the manual it should state in there.
I dont think it will handle more then a 3ghz P4

It sounds like the motherboard is damaged. Did you try to start with a boot cd? Or will it just not get to the bios setup screen?
