Gateway 5242E won't boot up message on monitor no signal


Answers :

First thought is a problem with the motherboard or video card. Do you have a spare video card you can throw in there? Is your computer beeping(POSTing) when you turn it on? This could also be a malfunctioning piece of hardware causing the computer to stall. Give us more info about what is happening and maybe we can give you a specific answer.
We need to conduct a few tests. First unplug the computer from the back and set the rocker switch to the off position. Wait a few minutes. Move the keyboard so you can see it while you are doing the next couple of steps.

\015\012Reinsert the power cable into the back of the computer, look at the keyboard while flipping the switch on for the power supply. If the supply is good you should see the keyboard flash all three lights near the numerical keys, then press the computer on button very briefly, do not hold it because that may send the computer into "sleep" mode. If not you may have a failed power supply and I would not reorder one from Gateway. For the same if not better price I would go aftermarket for it would be more powerful and cheaper.
