First, make sure the computer port is working in the computer by going to the device management ICON in control panel.

Once you check that, make sure you have set up your preferences in the TV to allow "INPUT" from the HDMI port. If you have more than one HDMI ports make sure you have the correct number listed. This is a common error. It would be the same if you are running a DVR with an HDMI cable, you need to set up the TV. Normally you hit the "INPUT" button on the remote control and a list pops up. Scroll over with the arrows to the correct HDMI port. You will likely need to do this again to get back to the cable input once you are finished with the computer connection.

I cant run my gateway GT5676 pc in normal mode with Samsung TV / Monitor

If I'm understand you correctly you said you have the HDMI Cable and the VGA Cable comming from the Computer to the TV. You should only have one cable. Either use the HDMI from the computer to the HDMI to the TV or use the VGA from the Computer to the VGA on the TV. Once you have the cable connect select your input on the TV. If you have the VGA Cable connected your input to select on the tv will probably be PC or Computer. If you use the HDMI Cable your input to select on the TV will be HDMI.

One you connect the cables and select the input try rebooting the computer and the video might show up automatically on the tv. If not you will have to hit the FN (Function key) + the correct (F1 thru F12) key that corresponds to the external display. The correct key will probably have CRT/LCD on it or it might have the icon of a display. Press and Hold the FN key then hit the correct key (F1 thru F12) that toggles the display. The display will toggle on 3 setups (Computer only, TV only, both the TV and Computer).

Now as for not being able to boot up normally that's another issue.

What is the second hdmi port surrounded in orange on the back of my gateway dx4320-17 do? it doesnt work when connected to my monitor so is it an hdmi input? and would i be able to connect my ps3 to it and...

I presume by second HDMI that you've got an additional Video Card in one of the expension slots (Item 10 at the link below) with another HDMI output

The HDMI surrounded by orange is an ouput but if you've got and additional Video Card then this build in HDMI would normally be deactivated.

Sometimes the problem relates to the screen resolution you've got your computer set to as this needs to match your Monitors HDMI Input i.e.1280x720 or 1920x1080 as detailed at the link below.

Is it powering off, or is the display just going black? Check to see if the keyboard is still active - can you see the Caps Lock light go on/off as you toggle the key?
