Question about Gateway GM5472 PC Desktop
I don't know if it has completely went bad, I pulled the card that held the s-video and blew it out and blew out the CPU. so i get ready to put it back together , I put it in exactly as I took it out and I have did this before to other CPU i had, But this time i hook it up and turn on the switch, But just the fan motor on high. No blue light where its suppose to light up when it turns on or nothing on the monitor,I made sure that the heat censor was tight by just pushing over the thumb part that tighten it with. Do you think the some of those little pins got bent when i wiggled the censor, O maybe i just unplugged something that I wasn't suppose to. Please let me Know? It was my neighbors.

SOURCE: Bent CPU Pins
Line them up in the light. Pins should be evenly spaced in BOTH directions. Look at the pins at eye level and try to line them up straight very carefully, using tweezers gently nudging individual pins. Those pins are VERY fragile and if you bend them too much they'll break. Try to very gently slightly wiggle the CPU into the motherboard without pushing down. Make sure it is lined up with the orientation marker before trying this. Good luck!

Try unplugging and opening the PC and removing the mainboard battery. *It's about the size of a quarter, a little thicker though" Hit the power button about 5 times. (Mind you this will reset ther board to factory settings and you will have to go into set-up and set the time back) plug the pc back up and you may be in buisness.
Hope this helps!

Your cpu might have died. As the computer is starting tap F8 and choose last known good configuration to see if you can get it started.

what u may have done is wwhen u were installing the new board, gave a static shock to the system...that will cause only the fans to come on and nothing more...this is a bad problem bc u cannot fix it...if u figure out something else is wrong, and it gets fixed, let me know

did you look on gateways website for a bios update. the firmware on your motherboard maybe corrupt. go here and check since I dont have your serial number... gateway has a java based scanner that might be able to repair it for you
please rank me if you can
