Having problems with your Gateway GT4010 (RBGT4010) PC Desktop ?

My pc will power on but not go into the bios to start the bootup

\015 When I push the power button, the hard drive light will come on for about 4 sec. and then blink out and the machine will not enter into the bios to start the boot up process. I checked the power supply and it is good.\015

Answers :

The above assumes IDE drives...

POST ( Power On Self Test ) will take place even with a faulty drive.. it will (should) warn that either no drives detected or drive is faulty.

Rather unplug all deviced not needed and leave only screen and keyboard.

Inside the machine unplug everything except you hard drive, unpleg DVD,CD,Stiffy drives.

Also if you have an onboard graphics on your motherboard then remove the grpahics card you have as well.

Also remove all but 1 of the RAM modules.

If the PC boots now gr8.. you may just have had a bad connection. Now reinsert the RAM modules you have removed. Then start the PC again.

If your PC doesnt boot you may have a faulty/damaged Power supply, motherboard or CPU

Keep plugging back all the components one by one untill they either all are back in and everything works ( bad connec5ion the cause then) or until you get to a point where you attach/plug something in and it doesnt boot...that component is your culprit. And remember it can be anything, from RAM to your mouse..

I am working on an HP Pavillion a1220n Desktop and I am getting different bootups each time.
