Having problems with your Gateway GT5428 PC Desktop ?

HARD DRIVE LIGHT COMES ON AT START BUT WILL NOT INITIALIZE THE MONITOR . THEN AFTER A MINUTE OR SO THE HARD DRIVE SHUTS OFF . THINK THIS A POWER SUPPLY PROBLEM . AFTER THE INITIAL SHUTDOWN WHEN RESTARTING THE HARD DRIVE THE FANS WILL ONLY INTIALIZE FOR ABOUT 5 SECONDS THEN THE HARD DRIVE SHUTSOFF . CAN ANYONE CONFIRM THIS TO BE A POWER SUPPLY ISSUE.


Answers :

It is a little hard to tell, I dont think its a psu problem.
I have seen something similar when a cpu/motherboard went faulty. (Older machine could not get either cpu or motherboard to test)
Also worth checking your ram is seated correctly.
Cant confirm need to test by changing the power supply first
