Is the powerpack light on? Does it stay on when your plug it into the moterboard? Is the light on to indicate that the computer is plugged into the charger? If all of the above is in order then take the battery out and see if the computer runs directly from the adaptor without battery. If so then replace battery pack and see what happens. If not, then there is still a problem or two with the mother board.
CVI error is a visual interface error, most likely a graphics card built onto the syetm board. However the motherboards are no longer available but there are a number of ways to upgrade this pc if all else in in good order.Contact for further support
i never had green lights on my motherboard, they have always been red and it runs fine. the mother board was made with red led lights. if its not working right, it's probably the switches on the mother board, normally make the first switch on, and the other 3 off.
you need to shut down the computer and pull the power cord off powersupply then remove the wire harness that goes on to the mother board then press the and hold the computer on button for 3 seconds then plug in the the harness back on the mother board and and plug in all power cords then try to turn on the computer it should give u a beep or the monitor should go from orange to green good luck e-mail me if u want firstname.lastname@example.org
Geeze, after working on hardware for 27 years i love the short circut dummie. Anyway yes, it's the motherboard / yes the green light will still come on on that model and quite a few other models. Dont worry about repairing / i.e. removing components on the motherboard, it's a fruitless endevor but a great way to waste time. A motherboard for that model will cost about 100-150 bucks / easy replacement. It's actually rare for both the power supply and mother board to go out on a tower/mini tower type system. Older laptops had that type of prob. Those emachines were **** for the mostet part. On the other hand Gateway has really gone up in quality and i have been quite impressed with them in the last few years...
Hi check the cables from the case to the mother board. They should be marked and the book that came with the board will tell you where to connect them. The std markings are HDD [red led] PWR S [powerswitch] RSW [reset switch] PWR LED [case power light]
To test if there is no fault in the board or power pack. first visualy check the board to see if you have a red led light on when the power is turned on, if not the problem is in the power pack or the wall outlet.
second if the light is on, the bridge the pins marked pwr switch on the board with a screw driver and this should start the computer, if not you have a faulty board.
Try plugging the drives into another computer to see if they actually work, ie read discs etc if they do then try swapping the power supply out of your computer.. if this doesn't work then I would say your motherboard is dead.
