Question about Gateway GT5220 PC Desktop
My mother's computer will not turn on. The power button has an orange light (like in standby mode) but nothing happens when you push it, move the mouse or tap the keyboard. The monitor is on but does not get a signal from the computer. I've checked all the connections and nothing has been unplugged. The only way to turn the computer off is with a switch on the back of the tower. It turns on with the power button in the front but the light stays orange and nothing appears on the monitor. It is a Gateway desktop, I do not know the model (sorry) and the operating system is WIndows ME.
I have a Gateway 500GR and was experiencing all sorts of shut downs, no boots, fans run but no blue power button light and black monitor etc. Plugged in and unplugged this and that, it was driving me nuts! Finally this worked for me. Running Windows 7 Ultimate. Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Change when the computer sleeps/Change advanced power settings. I set HDD turn off after to NEVER. Monitor turn off after to NEVER. I did this about 5 days ago and PC has been running flawlessly since! No more troubles whatsoever. I hope this helps someone else!! Good Luck!
