Question about Gateway (4000474) Motherboard
I discovered that the power button was broken. I took the front panel off and saw that one of the plastic pieces that holds the switch in place is broken. But with the front panel off, when I press the power button, it still won't power up. Gateway says I need to order a power switch and they gave me the phone number of a company. This company only has the front panel, not the power switch. I don't think this will help me.
If you are a practical person, the power on switch is the crudest item ever on a pc. The switch simply completes a circuit. If you look on you motherboard at the front panel connector cables, you will see the two that go to the power on switch. remove them, flash a small screw driver across the terminals and it will come to life
