SOURCE: I need a motherboard for this model. Gateway

The Gateway DX4720-03 Desktop PC, uses an MSI ms-7399 motherboard, made specifically by MSI for Gateway.

I just did a quick search and saw this mobo available for $75 US on Ebay. (Gateway DX4720, ms-7399)

This is not an advertisement for Ebay, nor the seller.

Hi there,

The motherboard could be the problem. However, you should first check that the master HDD to check if it is corrupted. You can check by either taking the HDD out of the computer and putting it in another computer as a slave HDD (it must be set as a slave drive because the HDD would not work as a master in another computer because the operating system has been configured to run on that one specific computer), you would need to change the drive from a master to a slave by changing the jumper pin found on the one side of the HDD, there should be a diagram on the top of the HDD which will show you how to change the drive from a master to a slave. Then just check that all of the data is on the drive. If it is then you know that the motherboard or the cpu is faulty.

The other thing you could do is if you have another HDD you can swap it out and test if it is working.

Hope this was helpful. Thank you for using FixYa! Have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution.

Regards,

I want to know how I can re-set my 3Com 3crwe955275 wireless access point to its default factory settings. Can anyone help?


1 Remove power from the Gateway. 2 Disconnect all your computers and the cable/DSL modem from the Gateway router. 3 Using a straight through Ethernet cable, connect the Ethernet Cable/DSL port on the rear of the Gateway to any one of the LAN ports. 4 Re-apply power to the Gateway. The Alert LED will flash as the Gateway starts up, and after approximately 30 seconds will start to flash more slowly (typically 2 seconds on, 2 seconds off). Once the Alert LED has started to flash slowly, remove power from the Gateway. 5 Remove the cable connecting the Cable/DSL port to the LAN port, and reconnect one of your computers to one of the Gateway LAN ports. 6 Re-apply power to the Gateway, and when the start-up sequence has completed, browse to: http://192.168.1.1 and run the configuration wizard. You may need to restart your computer before you attempt this. 7 When the configuration wizard has completed, you may reconnect your network as it was before

Gateway computer power light flashes before booting up.


Hmm. I wouldn't have thought it had anything to do with pressing the button. It sounds more like a failing power supply or lack of current for startup. Did you make sure you plugged the power into the video card power connector (if it has one)? I know it worked ok at first but a heavier load can cause older or under-rated power supplies to fail soon after. Just a thought.

Gateway Laptop(MODEL M-6750): The power button keeps flashing blue and so does the wireless signal. I've tried removing the battery, holding the power button nothing changes.


Does it do this when it is plugged in? Try to power it up with no battery, and see if it acts differently, it may be a battery issue unsure. Is the computer working normally except for this problem?

This is usually a sign that there is no signal going to your monitor, check all your cables and then reboot.

First when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in enable vga mode.
If you are able to enter then go to start menu->control panel->display property ->settings.
Change screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply and ok.

Then open cpu cabinet .
Refix RAM memory.
Pull cmos cell from motherboard for 10 minutes.
Reattach all connection harddrive.

Blue led power light blinks even after shutdown


What operating system are you using? When the power led continues to slowly blink, that means that the laptop is in standby mode and not fully shut down. In Vista, if you hit the power button on the laptop or the power button under the start button, it is configured to go to standby and not shut down. Make sure to hit the arrow all the way to the right and select shutdown from the list of dropdown options.

Want to disable power management flashing blue light on GT5220 PC


I don't think that's practically possible until you have to do it through the hardware inside..
However you may do some manipulation to the power plan of the computer system..
