Question by Jamie: My gateway desktop computer won’t start, it beeps 5 times and sometimes continously.?
I got a Gateway desktop two years ago. A few months back it strted resetting for no reason. Soon after I began getting a variety of blue screens and Stop messages. At the same time windows hotfixes won’t run nor would a windows update (running Vista). Decided to reinstall the op system. It’s still crashing and I’m still getting the five beeps on occassion. Any suggestions before I take the thing outside and repeatably run over it with my car?!
