Question about Gateway 310 S PC Desktop

2 Answers

Computer wont start up at all

When you push the power button the green light on the case comes on but the other light just flashes once and nothing happens, tried swaping out the hard drive and same problem still there. I have no idea what the problem is? I though about switching out the power source but when you plug in the cord a little green light turns on on the mother board. ive unpluged everthing from the motherboard and hooked it all back up and its still not working.It may have something to do with viruses because ive had them before.

    My problem sounds similar. I have a MX6453 Gateway notebook, almost a year old. When I press the power button, the green light around the button goes on momentarily and so does the blue and or pink lights in the front. When this first started to happen, after leaving it alone for a day or night, it powered up just fine but didn't last for more than an hour or so. After calling Gateway a few times, they agreed to let me send it back for repair. However, they returned it with the note: "Can not duplicate (customer claimed not reproducible)" and NFT (No Trouble Found)." Shortly thereafter, the same problem surfaced but after a few on and offs, it failed to power on at all. I called Gateway again and much to my surprise, they told me the motherboard was "broken" and because it was not a manufacturing defect, it would cost $500 to repair. The service rep told me that the problem was a result of something I did to the machine. Although I explained that it had already been returned for the same problem, he would not reconsider. What's 's going on here?

First of all try to connect the system spkr to its pannel at the edge of the main board, push the power on if a beep is heard continuesly then u should chek your RAM ( unpositioned properly or defected) un continioues beeping is a sign of something wrong with ur vga card. try to clear cmos by changing jumper setting near the main board battery. A defected cpu could cause this too. with respect to the notebook try to chek the CPU and RAM .

I doubt it's a virus, you will need to illiminate it is a damaged power supply as it would still light the board but maybe not enough to power the cpu. The processor itself may be at fault, although you should still get the fan powering up then a shut down. Lastly and hopefully it is your CMOS battery that requires replacing as if this is flat you will get no start up.

Vxl 3s turns on when i plug in battery, green light comes on, than red, than blinks through the racing and training modes, wont respond with button push


It sounds like it might just be a case of the button being stuck. The ESC shouldn't turn on just from you plugging in the battery, you're supposed to have to press the button once the battery's connected to power up the ESC.

See if you plugged in the 4 pin power connector on the motherboard besides the main power connection on the power supply (usually black colored and its a plastic 4 pin connector)

Try another power supply if all else fails. If new power supply does not work with this unit then its a motherboard which is blown and motherboard needs replacing.

Hope this helps

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 that won't start. The battery light would flash orange 4 times then blue once, and then start over with the same sequence. Pulled the power board and fixed the solder joints on...


This is directly from the User Manual:
If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the Battery light operates as follows:
• Solid green: The battery is charging.
• Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.
If the computer is running on a battery, the light operates as follows:
• Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).
• Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.
• Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.

Compaq proliant 5500 server wont power up


In my experience when a server/computer does absolutely nothing when the power button is pressed it is a dead processor. That may not be the case in your situation. It could be as simple as a defective power switch. Is the switch a soft touch or does it push in and click? Does the switch feel normal when pushed? One of the power supplies could also be bad. Do you have any good power supplies to test in the server? Were there any power outages recently that could have caused damage to the PSU? I would start with checking the switch. You could hook up a circuit tester and see if the switch completes the circuit when depressed. Also take a look inside the server and look for any loose connections on the mainboard. It is possible the wire for the power switch has come loose.
