Question about Gateway 310 S PC Desktop
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.
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.
