  1. I have a new Gateway GM5478 (media center) desktop. Problem: fan starts a loud noise then computer shuts down. Will ask if I want to open in 'normal' windows then boots up - losing data from past minute. Any remedies??

    Are you getting any beeps when the computer boots?

    If so how many?
