Question about Gateway GT5228 PC Desktop
When I push the power button on the computer it either starts or the blue light will just stay on. I then have to hold the button in and shut it off and try again. Sometimes it will start the first time or it could take several attempts. Tried new power supply, it seemed to help a little put old one back in still having problem. Replaced hard drive about 2 months ago after it crashed, start up was normal for 2 months. Warranty expired.
This is most likely do to a bad stick of RAM.
Try taking out all but one stick of ram and try booting. If it still doesn't boot try changing the stick out with another one you pulled (might be the stick you left in that is the problem)
In the case that it is bad RAM go to your local computer shop and get some new RAM for the computer or check if Gateway will replace the RAM.
If there is any display that comes on the monitor such as a 2 digit code try searching that or posting here with the code.
