Question about Gateway GM5072 Desktop PC
I believe you power supply is bad and needs changing,,
however try this first before changing the power supply
unplug your system.
1.) Open up the computer
2.) remove the memory
3.) Remove the mainboard battery see the silver pin to the right> pull that ayaw from the battery and it will popout
4.) hit the power button 5 times
5.) put your memory and battery back in
6.) put your powercable back in and try booting it..
IF THAT FAILS,, REPLACE YOUR POWER SUPPLY.

I have the same problem since two days ago. I unplugged the power, waited for a while, and then plugged it again. Luckily it worked. The next day it worked all right. Tonight I had the problem again. I unplugged the power, wait, and plugged in the power again. Thank God, it is working on. Somebody suggested that it might be the problem with the motherboard. Anyway, I will check the battery and the power supply first.
By the way, anyone has contacted Gateway about this problem?

I too have the same problem with the same computer. Mine is 11 months old. I would try the memory removal & battery as suggested but don't know where memory is. Also doesn't that wipe out the memory by removing it? steve
