Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
I have managed to loose over the years, the diagram that was sent with the origional machine that showed you where to plug in the wires on the back of the tower that operates everything. I think I may be missing a wire somewhere...the tower lights up, sounds like it is running, the monitar comes on and shuts right back down again. I even tried putting one of the restore disks in the slot to see if that would kick it in, but nothing has happened

SOURCE: Monitor goes blank during uptime
I had the same problem - was the motherboard capactitors.
Dell extended the warranty on those motherboards because of the fault until January 2008. Unfortunately I only found that out in February :-(
Still, I bought some replacement capacitors from www.badcaps.net replaced the faulty ones on the motherboard and all is now running sweetly.

I had the same problem with my 2002 Silverado last summer when I first bought my boat and was getting the trailer ready to go. Like an idiot, I rewired the boat trailer on that side before I decided to look at the owner's manual. The pickup has separate fuses for right and left side of trailer. They're located in the big box in the engine compartment. I replaced the 10 or 15 size fuse and haven't had a problem since. Hope this helps!

Because there are so many different case and motherboard combinations
sometimes it can be difficult following the instructions for connecting
the front panel, USB header and audio header.
Below is a few generic guide that should stop some of the confusion with the labels on the wires.
Front Panel Audio
***Please note this is a generic wiring guide and we can not guarantee it will work with every motherboard. Please check your motherboard manual first. Wiring the headers wrong can cause damage to the motherboard and case, this damage is not covered by the warranty***
another handy USB wiring guide can be found here http://www.directron.com/installusb.html
this maybe easier to follow

1) Mic In
2) GND (ground) or if 2xGND available, it’s the GND for the headphones, NOT the Mic
3) Mic BIAS
