Question about Gateway 3250S PC Desktop
I have a gateway 3250s with intel motherboard D915GAG/D915PSY E210882. The green light on the motherboard is on when plugged in but the power switch does nothing when pushed in. A shop where i had it looked at said the motherboard was bad. I replaced it with a new one(same as the original) and still have the same problem. Now i,m not sure which pins the power lead should be connected to. I tried shorting the pins 6 and 7 with no result. The only thing it will do is the green light on the motherboard lights up when i plug in the power cord. Any suggestions?
Here is the power and data wiring layout as intel states it , go through eachg conection and check them. also check your jumpers on the mainboard , make sure none have jarred loose. If you have added memory recently, take it out and leave just the old memory in the slots, making sure it's seated properly. http://www.intel.com/design/motherbd/ag/ag_con.htm

2x2 or 2x4 Power Connector Not Plugged In
If the power supply cable with the 2x2 connector or 2x4 connector (depending on your desktop board), is not plugged into the 12V processor core voltage connector located near the processor socket, the system will not boot up. You will see lights onboard and on the chassis front panel and the processor fan will spin, but nothing will appear on the monitor. See figures below for cable placement.
