It could either be the graphics card, if you have a pcie card or vga card fitted, or your memory need to be reseated, take off the side of your pc and just check the graphics card is pushed in

Gateway dx 4320 wont turn on


It could be a few things:

a faulty power switch - you say that you've changed the PSU, but did that include the switch?

it could also be a Faulty Motherboard or CPU. If either of them are fried, you won't see anything come on either.

I'd suggest checking the switch first because that's the cheapest and easiest to replace

My dell dimention 9200 makes a buzzing noise and no show on monit


Sounds like its just 1 of the fans inside the case needs replacing or possibly the fan inside the power supply. These dont cost much and are easy to replace.

When turned on the computer power light comes on and the fan but nothing else.. Moniter shows no signal, no beep or anything from computer... just sit there with fan running... What can I try toget...


Sounds like the memory is faulty. If there theres more than 1 memory module just try one at a time until you find the faulty 1. If only 1 in there replace it the speed of memory should be written on the old one. Cheers from Scott pls dont forget to vote

Old gateway desktop tries to start up but just shows white screen or menu


the last time my friend's old cp would not start and showed a white screen, it was nothing else than changing the power box that had gone dead from overheating - the fan was stuck hard since weeks!
