Look for a make and model number and version number on the motherboard, gateway use various manufactures motherboards.
Then go to the makers website and look in the support section for the moherboard manual. Most motherboards have the connections marked on the board in very small print.

SOURCE: gateway 505gr motherboard replacement

not powering up does not mean the mother board is bad , the power supply going bad is more likely to be the problem . But your tower is considered to be a mini tower ive got the same one that I replaced the mother board on . dont mess up and get the wrong size board , it will not fit!

Proper installation of tower wires


According to Gateway Support, the Gateway 505GR desktop computer uses an Intel (Ausberg) 915G motherboard,

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/3724/3724iv.shtml

Intel (Ausberg) 915G motherboard,

http://www.ascendtech.us/itemdesc.asp?ic=MB4GWAUGSBURG

Scroll down to the photo with the sections marked in red.

In the top link, looking at the motherboard with the computer case open, the USB and Firewire (1394a) cables, can be seen attached to the motherboard near the letters D, E, and F.

In F that red cable is a SATA cable. One end attaches to the back of the SATA harddrive, (The angled end), and the other end of the SATA cable attaches to one of those SATA headers on the motherboard.
(SATA header = SATA connector on motherboard)

Preferred SATA header for the Harddrive is SATA 1.
DOESN'T matter though. That's the beauty of SATA. You can plug the SATA data cable into ANY SATA header on the motherboard, and BIOS will find the harddrive.


In the second link, looking at the motherboard photo shown, and comparing it to the view of the motherboard as mounted in the computer case, the Front Panel header is at the very Bottom Right.

Two rows of pins in a White rectangular shaped header,

http://www.ascendtech.us/itemdesc.asp?ic=MB4GWAUGSBURG

(S points to Front Panel header)

[ The plastic front of a desktop computer is the Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard, that the Front Panel wires go to, is the Front Panel header ]

A) Top row has Even numbered pins
B) Bottom row has Odd numbered pins.

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-009016.htm

1) Power LED = Power On LED light
2) Hard Drive Activity LED = LED light that flashes (Usually red in color) when your harddrive is active. Being used.
3) Reset switch = Reset Button. The Reset switch is behind the Reset button. (IF the computer uses a Reset switch)
4) Power Switch = Power On switch
5) Forget about Pin 9. That's for 5 Volts DC - Out. Used by factory.

Which wires coming out of the Front Panel, are the Power On wires, Harddrive LED light wires, Power On switch wires, etc.?

Remove the Front Panel, and trace where the wires end.

IF, the wires already installed coming from the motherboard to the Front Panel, are Too short, you should make notes before you remove them from the motherboard.

Note what color pair of twisted wires, went to where, in the Front Panel.
Compare to the chart of the Front Panel header given above.
(IF any wires are still connected to the Front Panel header on the motherboard)

Once the Front Panel is removed, it's usually pretty easy to trace the two wires up to the Power On switch.
Same for the Power On LED light.
Again, same for the HarDDrive activity LED light.

The SATA harddrive requires a DATA cable, and a SATA power cable.

The connector for a Data cable has 7 contact pins. It is the shorter connector.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SATA_Data_Cable.jpg

The connector can be at a 90 degree angle as shown, or a straight connector.
IF the data cable has an angled connector, it plugs into the Harddrive.
Straight connector goes to the motherboard.

The connector for a SATA power cable has 15 contact pins. It is the longer connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

Note the L shape of the connectors for the SATA data cable, and SATA power cable.

Also;
This is a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable. Commonly misnomered as a 'Molex' power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

IF, the SATA harddrive has a provision for a SATA power cable, AND a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable, ONLY use just the SATA power cable.

Using both power cables will burn up the harddrive.
May not happen immediately in some cases, but WILL eventually happen.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Computer will not power up


I attempted to find this information for you and was unable to. Usually the type/model of the motherboard in a prebuilt PC is determined by printed information located by the CPU/Memory slots.

The downside to most prebuilt PCs you buy in the store, is these motherboards are generic motherboards. Gateway orders them from a company that makes them in bulk specifically for their needs. You would be better off trying to buy a new motherboard that matches the specifications of your current one. Here is the specification page for this Gateway PC. You would need to find a new motherboard that matched most, if not all of these features. However, worst case scenario, you may consider contacting Gateway to find out if they still have this board and how much it would cost to buy or have them replace it.

Gateway 505gr became unresponsive, on reboot windows cannot load


Hello guys,
This problem would arise only when the motherboard doesn't work properly. Check with your nearest gateway service center to get your CPU work again. That would be the only thing to be done.
