Having problems with your Gateway GT5056 PC Desktop ?
Boot issue with gateway gt5028
\015 When booting PC, fans run, h/d spins, but no screen. I have changed out the psu and the graphics card. Also interesting I have diagnostic hardware (digital) and only get FF, there are no other codes. I would have liked to change cpu but I had no extras of the same socket. Is it possible it can be the cpu or more likley the mobo.\015
I had a similar problem. It turned out to be the CPU. Try fishing around to find some way to try to make the computer "squeak". Like holding a key while it boots. This makes the computer make a warning tone. If it does so, I'd imagine there is activity. If any way possible you can try to test the CPU in a different comp. Oh, and have you done any work on it recently and how long has it been operating?

CPU overheating I was wondering if anyone knew about any cpu overheating problems with the gateway MT3422. I have read several articles on this issue, and wonder if this may be my problem. I noticed that the laptop does get really hot, even with a cooling unit underneath it. The computer is now not wanting to turn on after restarting due to recent updates. I get a power light on after pushing the button a few times, no other lights are on, the CPU fans does turn on and the cd rom does spin. F 12
