Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I only have the mini tower - need appropriate cabes, cords, etc.

I have an older Gateway pc that has been in storage for several years. I just ran across it and would like to get it working again. My problem is that I don't have any of the cables, nor do I have a monitor. I'd like to find out what types of cords/cables would be compatible to use with this mini tower. I have plenty of ethernet cables, but it looks like I'll also need a power cord, monitor w/connection, and keyboard. I can easily get a mouse. Any suggestions on where to look for these items would be appreciated. I'm sure there are a few websites out there that have this infromation, it's just a matter of knowing where to look.

Thanks for the help!
John

First, I suggest finding a monitor first as some have an 'attached' monitor cable and some don't. (No use buing a $15.00 cord you don't need) As far as a mouse goes, believe it or not, I've found the best prices for a good mouse at Home Depot and Publix Supermarkets. E-bay and Amazon.com always have great prices on most any cord.
All PC power cords I've ever seen are the same (about $11.00 at any Staples, CompUSA, Best Buy, etc.), They are will only fit PC's and VGA (old-style) monitors.
Any monitor should work just fine. For used I'd suggest craigslist.com and for a new LCD you probably can't beat tigerdirect.com (new owner's of CompUSA).
Any mouse & keyboard will work also. Good Luck!

Laptop makes a pinging sound when opening and then crashes


your computer cannot boot from the hard drive or cannot read the drive.the drive may be corrupted so zero-fill it.and if you think that your hard disk is in healthy condition then you can try one by changing your battery and observing the screen by pluging the laptop to the wall socket and also unplugging.do you see any difference? if yes then problem with the battery(if seen that the laptop reboots after being plugged).to the best of my knowlege,the hard drive is corrupted.

What cord do I need to connect my 1810 gateway monitor to my tower


Your either going to need VGA or DVI. You need to check the back of your computer and monitor to see which type of connection you have. Then plug in the appropriate cable.

Gateway 505gr motherboard replacement


not powering up does not mean the mother board is bad , the power supply going bad is more likely to be the problem . But your tower is considered to be a mini tower ive got the same one that I replaced the mother board on . dont mess up and get the wrong size board , it will not fit!
