Question
When I turn my GT complete on it detects the hard drive.  Then it checks the system files.  It gets to the page that says initializing and then it blips off and goes back to checking system files page. Is it the hard drive, board or????
Please help

Answer
Hi Frank,

If this machine has worked in the past and has had nothing changed, I would first turn the voltage on the power supply up about 1/3 of a turn first. It sounds to me like the voltage is too low, and it's causing the machine to reboot. Look at some of my past GT answers for more info on turning the voltage up.

If that doesn't work, it is the hard drive that needs replaced, but my guess is that the voltage will fix the problem.

Hope this helps,
Brian

Expertise

I can answer questions regarding coin-operated arcade game questions down to the logic board. Error codes, erratic operation, dead boards, I can help with them all. I can help with video monitors on a very limited and basic level only.

Experience

I have spent nearly 20 years as an avid arcade collector, and spent nearly 10 of those years as the lead tech for a large arcade operator, doing work for manufacturers and other coin-operated amusement companies around the globe. I maintain a good sized collection of arcade games, as well as a large inventory of spare parts for a wide range of arcade machines.
