There is a few fuses that can cause everything to quit. Check all of them under hood and on drivers side of dash. Next I would look at the ignition switch to see if it's sending power back to everything. If you have a test light with a standard bulb not LED to check for power. Do not use a multi meter as they can give you false reading when working on this kind of issue. Check for good connections at the battery and make sure the battery is good.
Look on the inside of the case behind the front panel to determine how the front panel is secured to the case. Depending upon the type of case, remove the side panels or the desktop cover. Front panels on desktop cases are secured to the case by either screws behind the front panel on the inside of the case, or by plastic locking tabs that needs pushing to unlock fron the case or if the front panel has an opening at the bottom then it may be held in place by friction lugs, in this case pull the bottom of the front panel and it will come away from the case.
You should be able to transfer your motherboard to the new case, but some things to check before you do:
How do the power switches and front audio/USB connections work for the old gateway? Are they standard or vendor specific? Are the optical drives in the gateway standard, or do they have special fronts on them? I have done what you are wanting to do several times, and often you need to replace OEM optical drives, and sometimes the motherboard headers don't match up with a builder case, so you do the best you can.
Your motherboard has quite a few little three pin white plugs on it, look closely and you will see them on the motherboard. These are auxillary fan plugs and power all the extra fans you can install in your case. Just attach the plug from the fan into one of these sockets. They only go in one way.
to access your fan you may need to remove the harddrive cage that is in the way. and the flashing led? sounds like your harddrive activity light. if that is the case it is normal for them the blink erratically
The problem is the board on the case's display. It has temp alarms for your components(video card, hdd, cpu), there are temp probes for you to set so you can monitor these temps. However the board that controls these functions, or at least mine and many others I have read about, is defective. It will change display constantly and sometimes have garbage display. It is setting its own limits for what is considered a hi temperature. The limit it has set for one of your components is < room temperature so it thinks you are having an overheating problem. You can manually set the limit for overheat and it will fix it for a while, but it will prob happen again.
The front audio in this case does not support HD sound. To get it to work you must instal the "HD Sound Application" that came with your hardware and disable the "Detect Front Panel Jack Detection" option. You'll have to manually switch between the two inputs.
