Having problems with your Gateway GT5662 Desktop PC ?

Computer starts to load and then shuts down

\015 Today when I turned on my computer it would not start up at all. I could hear the computer trying to boot up but in about 2-3 seconds it would just shut off. I had no problems yesterday with my computer so i don't understand why all of a sudden it just doesnt want to load. I thought maybe it was my power supply that I just upgraded last month or two ago (thermalake 500w) so i went out to best buy and bought a new power supply. Well that wasn't it so i will be returning that. So i switched out the power supplies and tried starting up the computer again. This time it started to boot up but as soon as it started loading my desktop it shut down again. Now it shuts down everytime while loading the desktop. It will even shut off if i try to load in safe mode but i can stay in bios without a problem. I did a search online and someone said to take out the bios battery and try loading but it still shuts off. I don't think its a heat problem because I have plenty of fans and they are all working it's also not very dusty inside. Now I have no clue what to do next.

Answers :

Check the capacitors surrounding the Processor, You might have leaking capacitor. If even One is bad, the Processor won't\015\012receive the correct amount of voltage, and won't turn on.

In the bios post, does it show that your harddrive mounts? If not, verify in BIOS that the HDD is seen. If not, you may have a bad drive or corrupt OS. If you have a windows recovery CD, put it in and see if it will reinstall. Hope this helps,
