Gateway 504GR wont fully poot up

PC went into sleep mode normally. When i attempted to use it again I recieved no response from the keyboard or mouse. I held in the power button to reboot it. When i powered it back up the front gateway light lights up, the internal fan runs, and the yellow busy light displays for a short time. However, the system never gets beyond this point. There are no beeps and the other processor fans never kick in. Itried using a different monitor but to no avail

I too had this problem, I had to disconnedct the main power to the PC, give it 30 seconds to bleed any residual capacitor charge and then plugged back in and hit the main power switch and it booted normally.

Gateway 504gr bios update failed


You maybe using the wrong version, it's already updated, or simply can not be upgraded.
Unless there is a TRUE need to flash, and usually there is not, I would stay away from. So many people try and fail, only to wipe the CMOS, leaving the system useless. Here is some sound advice on the subject.

Computer will not stay in sleep mode. It reboots in about 10 seco


The PC comes back out of the sleep mode by input from the keyboard, mouse, or if it's configured in the BIOS, by the network card. If you are connected to other PC's, the network card might constantly be passing info back and forth throughout the network and then it won't remain in the sleep mode. First thing I'd do is check if there is a setting in the BIOS which makes the PC come out of sleep mode by the network card.

The mouse and keyboard can also be pretty hyper. You can sometimes just sit in front of your PC and blow air onto your mouse or keyboard and the PC reacts. Therefore, if you have your PC in a room with a slight draft, it might help to keep the doors & windows closed. Any small vibration may do the job, so make sure the table isn't on top of something that vibrates, even if ever so slightly.
