Well this seems the best place to start...
I have a Gateway GT5622 Desk top computer
My problem started about a month ago, my fan that is seated on the heatsink and the motherboard started to be very loud, i thought that it was getting hot so we cleaned the heat sink and used some new conduent goop (not sure of the name of it) but that was not the problem...
Then my power light started flashing on and off..
when my fan is running fast or very loud my power light is off, and when the fan isnt running the the powerlight is on...
Now I have taken it to two techs the first one thought it might be a bad power supply, so that was changed... No Difference still the same
then the thought was that the onboard video card was acting up so we got a Nvidia Gforce video card everything seemed to be fine for about 2 days after we put in the video card ... No Difference still the same
We made sure that all of the drivers were up to date
I have ran all kinda of checks on my computer and it says that everything is fine, we even reinstalled windows vista on it nothing at all has changed Please help me out both computer techs are confussed and are not sure why this is happening
This is my last resort to ask my guys before I have to try and replace my motherboard and the processor and I dont want to do that if I dont have to
Thank you in advance for any input given
