The hard drive might be infested, or the pc is teling the fan to stay off cause it isnt warmed yet. if anything just look for another fan out on the motherboard, like case fan. you might have to free the power cord if its zipped down.

I turn on the Gateway and the words Gateway come on screen, then it goes black. The keyboard is on then off then comes on again, Screen remains black.


You have a problem with the operating system. It has crashed. You will need to reinstall the operating system in your computer. Before you do that you need to back up your file in your hard drive.To do that you need a 2nd computer get a hard-drive closure external take out the hard drive of your gateway. and plug it in to the external closure and plug it in the computer and explorer and move the files you need to the other computer. After that put the hard drive back into the gate

Your computer came with a recovery disc. Use that to reinstall your computer and software. That will help your problem. Update your computer to make sure it doesn't fail again.

sounds like your system is booting up and running due to the hold power shutdown procedure. you might try replacing the video card or adding one if your video is integrated.

Turn the comp. on only thefans come on.


It could be a bad RAM stick or a bad CPU, or if you know the insides of a computer good then unplug your CDROM, & hard drive (both cable to each drive), and if you have any cards on your PCI slots remove any of them but the video card. Also, keep your mouse and keyboard plugged in. Then try it.

Gateway computer does not turn on


Without seeing the machine, I'm thinking you have a motherboard problem. But try these troubleshooting steps before throwing in the towell:
Open the case and disconnect the CD cable. Now try it. If it still doesn't work, disconnect the hard drive and try it.
Let me know what happens. I've seen CDs mess up a system like this. I many times will swap out the power supply, but I'm thinking with the lights flashing, its a more serious problem.

U heare a noise and the moniter wort turn on


Hi,

Please confirm if the noise is coming from the monitor of from the desktop. If the buzzing noise is coming from the monitor - i suggest to request for a replacement. If not it could be a noise coming from the desktop system fan or from the hard drive.

If you hear like a clicking noise coming from the hard drive you may need to run diagnostics on it to check if the hard drive is failing. check with your computer manufacturer is your system still under warranty for parts replacement.

Keep me posted.

Thanks
