Question about Gateway 700 XL (700XLDFM) PC Desktop
A friends computer. Green light on MB is on. No sounds..ie(fans,drives processor) nothing. Tried unplugging, removed battery from MB. Nothing. I have another power supply which i can try, and if need to, i can remove a HD from a older machine to test that. Any suggestions, besides off the skyway bridge?
I replace everything inside of my when it did the yellowish act and it still don't power up. It did at first but had a mind of its own and would only come on sometimes. The only thing left for me to do is replace the power switch. Being that I got a new motherboard and power supply, cpu, heatsink, battier that is the only thing left.

You are on the right track. First, swap out the power supply. That normally is the issue. If that's not the issue, verify that the power switch indeed is working. You can do that by determining which color wires are for the power switch, then hold a multimeter set to resistance on the ends of those two wires. When the button is pressed, it should go to zero. If not, then the switch is fautly. That is an unlikely scenario, however. If the new power supply fails to work and the switch is okay then the problem is the motherboard.
Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
