There are a number of things that could be wrong here, firstly reset the cmos on the motherboard, if you cannot find the cmos jumper then remove the battery for 10 minutes (make sure the power cord is removed from the back) press the on/off button a couple of times, this will drain any remaining power from the board and properly reset the cmos, while the battery is out remove the memory, clean the contacts and repace, put the battery back in and connect power, if the machine turns on, job done, if not then it could be something far more serious, check the power suppy if could be faulty, the processor may have blown or the motherboard itself may have blown, the only way to check all the components at once is to get a working motherboard which supports your processor type, the same model would be an advantage

Fan works randomly....when it's not working plug


Hi, If the computer is hot near the electrical plug in the back of the computer then the power supply needs to be replaced. This will also cause overheating problems if the fan does not exhaust enough air. You should not run the computer in this condition because the power supply can short out and take other components with it. Also there is a risk that it will burn up. Power supplies are very inexpensive and can be changed by anyone with basic computer repair knowledge. Hank

835gm powers up, but monitor power button goes amber, screen stays black and fan stays on high rpm. Had problem in past, usually solved with restart, but have had this computer in storage for awhile, now...


1. It could be bad connection of Memory, CPU, Graphic-cards etc. Try to reseat them aswell.
2. Have you tried replacing the power-unit?
3. Some BIOS es are a bit 'stupid', do you have a fairly new and working monitor plugged in directly (bypassing KVMs)?

Worst case is 'BGA-slip', the bridge-chips and/or onboard GPU has some broken solderings, typically happens to Laptops.

We were given a Gateway EL500S computer to use for our kids. We set everything up. We did try to install an ethernet card. When we turned it on, nothing happened. The light comes on the ''on'' button but...


when you say no fan you mean the cpu fan or the case fan. the cpu fan is on top the cpu. make sure that at least this starts. if it does not start then shut down your pc immediately as it can burn the cpu.
it could be lots of reasons, but make sure that you have connected the power supply cables correctly to the motherboard. probably the motherboard may have a small led. check if that lights up. it means that power gets to the motherboard.
i would advice to find someone that has more knowledge.

Gateway 500xl pc will not turn on power button is lit up yellow


A LOT of Gateway computers will go into this catatonic state because of a dead battery. The battery is on the motherboard -- it looks like a metal disk about 1" in diamter. Check it or replace it. This applies to laptops too (not the actual laptop battery, the CMOS battery -- a laptop will have one on the motherboard too)

Hope this helps
