500c CTO will not boot

I have a Gateway 500c CTO When compter is plugged into the ac outlet, the power supply fan starts immediately without pressing the front on button. There are no "post' signals or the display does not come up. The power supply was found to operational (all voltages are present).

When a computer completely fails to boot or to provide any sort of power on self-test (POST) beep codes, the cause is either a hardware failure, lack of power or a bad connection.


To solve these problems, it helps to start with potential environmental causes first, such as a problem with the AC power being supplied to the computer.


From there, a good rule of thumb is to simply start disconnecting items from the computer one at a time until just the CPU, motherboard, RAM and power supply remain connected, and then swapping in known good replacements for them.


Test the AC power to make sure there is power to the outlet. Inspect the back of the power supply to ensure the power cord is fully seated, the power switch is on and the voltage setting is set to the right voltage, which is typically 110 volts.


Inspect the inside of the computer for any signs of burned components, such as capacitors or integrated circuits that are deformed or discolored, and replace the affected expansion card, motherboard, drive or other device if damage is located.


Verify a proper connection for each expansion card, cable, drive and stick of RAM by disconnecting and reconnecting each item without removing it from the system.


This can sometimes clean corroded or loose contacts and solve minor problems that prevent the system from booting.


Disconnect the drives and remove all of the expansion cards except for the video card, and try to boot with a bare system composed of only the power supply, motherboard, CPU and cooling fan, RAM, and video.


Attempt to start the computer again. If the system boots, reinstall the removed items one at a time until the system again fails to boot, and then replace the component that is causing the failure.


If the bare system fails to boot, swap in known good components for the motherboard, RAM, video card, power supply and CPU until the system boots.


Swap components into a working computer one at a time until that system fails to boot in order to locate problem components.


Hope this helps.

It should start for a few seconds, the fans should spin and then stop. You should be able to power it up as per normal. If that is no the case then you are having hardware issues which could be the Power supply

When fixing the power cord socket on to the board it power the board but immediately I try to plug the auxllary onto the board to supply the processor it shut down the power.putting the two same time onto...


Motherboards can be configured to react to the application of AC power in several ways:

* always automatically start-up as soon as AC power is supplied;
* never automatically start-up when AC power is supplied;
* if on when the power stopped, come on;
if off when the power stopped, stay off.

Leave the auxiliary-connector NOT connected, if your computer works without it.

Enter BIOS SETUP, and change the 'POWER' settings, if you want the computer to stay "off" when AC power is restored.

Lighting came into my computer via the ethernet cable. can this be fixed I also think it took out my power supply un it. It is a gateway 500c.


If only power supply's affected, then change the SMPS with a compatible one of the same rating. But first check the monitor by connecting to the mains power supply with the video chord not attached to anything. if the monitor displays "no videos" signal, then the monitor is OK cange the SMPS of the CPU and check UPS & spike boards fuses, otherwise commect to main power supply pluf(Wall 3-pin outlet socket)......sodeep

Mother board 845 LDA as i switch on LED Blinks & Processor Fan Momentarily Starts then it gets off


I have built quite a few PCs and I have often found the same problem when trying to boot for the first time. An old trick that might help is to repeatedly energize then drain the PC electricity.
Do this by plugging in the PC momentarily then unplugging it then immediately pressing the power button on the PC while there is no power hooked up. Do this several times over and over again in quick succession. Finally turning on the PC with the power connected. If the power supply on the PC has a switch on it you may use that instead of actually plugging and unplugging.
Also you might try pressing and holding down the "ins" or "insert" key while powering on the PC.
Hope this helps.

Password on boot up


This usually works with a bunch of motherboards,

1. Open the CPU.
2. Unplug it from the power.
3. Remove the BIOS Battery.
4. Press Power without pluging it in a power supply.
5. (IF you can) Try and find a pin usually 3 of them with a jumper connecting 2 of them (middle and 1side) remove it and connect the middle and the opposite side and press power on again without plugging it.
(IF you can't find it) Just push the power button for about 30 seconds without pluging it.
