Question about Gateway GT4016 Desktop PC

Gateway - No Beep - No Display

My neighbor just gave me a Gateway - I plugged it in and it worked great, but was a little slow, so I removed the 128 MB RAM card and tried to replace it with a 512 MB card, the led light went on and that was all, no display and doesn't boot up, so I put back the original card- actually, there were two of them, one was 128 MB and the other one doesn't say, but now again, no beeps, no display, just the LED lights- Can anyone help me figure this out? Thanks so much! It doesn't say anthing on the computer but has a sticker that says Windows XP and Intel Celeron, the only reason I know it's a Gateway is that is what it said when it originally booted up.

Try resetting the cmos..unplug the computer remove the battery for a minute or two then replace and plug back in. There is also a way to clear it by moving a jumper normally right near the battery it should say "clear" or "cl" or "cmos" there will be 3 pins normal mode is how it is now just move the jumper to short the unused pin and then put it back the way it was. As before unplug the computer first

No beep codes,only flashing cursor on display. Removed ram, got beep code. Tried different processor and memory, still same, no beep, no display, no boot. Cannot access bios settings. Sounds like dead...


Sounds like a bad motherboard. To be sure, I'd remove or unplug all devices (hard drive, CD-ROM, etc) and verify. Sometimes, those devices can prevent a bootup. If you've removed all those and same thing, bad board.

System Fault indicator light on in a Gateway 975 Rackmount Server


If it is on steady and green, the server is operating normally.
If it is on steady and orange, the server is "in a critical or unrecoverable condition"

This is according ro the manual located at http://support.gateway.com/s/Manuals/Servers/8510289.pdf

If it is orange, for further diagnostics, you should see POST error codes, or hear relevant audible beep-code patterns, which can be interpreted by checking the tables in the PDF Server manual linked above. (Pages 125 and 128 respectively.)

If it's green, of course, you dont have a problem.

One long beep tow short beep


One long beep and two short beeps mean faulty video adapter.

If you are using a card, like a PCI or AGP video adapter then remove and put back the card in slot.

If you have a motherboard, then the video chipset on motherboard had gone, buy an agp video adapter and insert it in the slot inside your computer to fix the problem.

below an example of PCI and AGP video card:

MSI G4MX4000-T64 64 MB Graphics Card

HP Intel DVI AGP digital display card

ATI Rage 128 Pro 32 MB PCI Graphics Card

No display at post


There are a few things that can cause no display on the monitor.
That single beep means POST = Power On Self Test. Post has tested everything on you're board to be good.
The cable between video card & monitor may be bad or not connected correctly (Swap out the cable as last resort).
2. You're monitor is defective, try swapping it with known working monitor.
3. You're video card is not functioning.
Lastly, when you reset the system cmos/bios everything went back to default. This means you're bios is now using the onboard PCI video graphics. Remove you're radeon 9600 video card. Try booting the system. You should see display again. The only way to test you're radeon would be to boot to the bios & set bios to boot using the AGP radeon. You need to change Init Display First to AGP & not PCI. If you loose video than you know you're AGP card is bad. Reset the cmos/bios before adding another AGP card or you will not get display. This setting is on pg 3-5. Integrated Peripherals. If you need you're manual you can download it from this link: http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=NF7-S2G&fMTYPE=Socket+A

Good Luck!

Sony Net MD Walkman (MZ-N910)


had the same problem a few minutes ago!
removed the battery but it didn't help.
tried with another md, no success
tried the same md in another Mz 910, no success

then it got on my nerves and I gave the MZ n910 a little shock with my hand.

It worked, stopped spinning and started to play.

It was, I think, a spinning problem, md couldn't play properly, the little shock helped.
