    I have a Gateway PC and I have a problem turning it on. Sometimes I have to hit the button 3 or 4 times b4 it starts. Anyone else have that problem?

    Hi etowahan - welcome to TSG! :)

    This problem could be any number of things. How old is your system? It is most likely either a loose connection inside the case, or could be the power supply is going bad.

    Thank you Jody,

    It could be a loose connection because I did take the case apart to install a new CD-rom. The problem now is how do I find it.

    Best Regards,

    Bob

    Thanks! I'll check out the switch. Don't recall that it is clicking.
