Having problems with your Gateway GT5028 PC Desktop ?

Add on PCI-E video card doesn't work

\015 I have a Gateway GT5028 system and add a PNY Nvidia 7300gt PCI-E video card a couple of years ago. It worked great until the other day when I booted my computer and my monitor stayed blank (but was powered on). I was using the DVI connection. I unplugged the DVI and connected the old style pin connector to the monitor and to the back of the computer at what I assume is the onboard video connector. That brought my screen back up. So I figured my 7300gt card was bad and went out and bought a BFG NVidia 8400gs card and swapped them out and reconnected the DVI plug. This did not solve the problem, I still do not get anything on the monitor. I bought the 8400gs card at Best Buy and am assuming it is good, but have not taken it back to be tested yet. Is is possible the PCI-E slot is bad on the motherboard? Or something else? thanks.\015

Answers :

I would check the BIOS To check the boot order preference to see if you can tell the motherboard to Force Starting up with the PCI-E Slot.

\015\012If the slot did go bad, most likely you would see the system crash instead of just automatically going back to using the onboard video card.

Computer "turns on" i hear four to five beeps, but the monitor gets no signal. a friend gave me the computer, only once did i see it boot up fully but it froze up so i had to restart it and it wont work. everytime i try i get the same thing four or five beeps and monitor says no signal. so i dont know whats happening. its a gateway computer runing windows xp. thats all i know. i know the monitor is good cause i tested it on another computer.


Without knowing the exact frequency/length of the beeps my first guess would be a bad stick of ram or a bad video card. If there is more than one stick of ram in the computer try it with one of the sticks pulled, pulling each stick until it does boo ... Gateway GT5028 PC Desktop
