Having problems with your Gateway 310 Series (158920) PC Desktop ?

Power Problems I moved my desktop to a new location and after setting it up, it keeps shutting down and turning on after logging in. I will log in and hit enter and it immediately shuts down and restarts. I have held down both the reset and power buttons for 1 minute each. Possibly the power cord assembly? Any comments/solutions greatly appreciated.


Answers :

You may have jarred a component loose inside. Open the side panel and carefully inspect the cable connections and circuit boards.
Check the memory sticks as well. Good luck!
