    Looking at Gateway's support site it tells me your board has onboard audio. You can go into your bios at startup to see if the onboard audio is enabled. If it is & still no sound then I would say the onboard audio has went bad. You could fix this by adding a soundcard to an open pci slot inside your computer and then disabling onboard audio. The soundcard would then provide all sound for your computer. Hope this helps.

Gateway gt5404 will not post have replaced ps and mb,pilot light on mb goes on, fans and cpu cooler start but no action other than that post, no beeps no lights, have all cards drives , cards, and ...

You need to have the memory installed and video card (unless it's on-board) for post.

I'd say the CPU is culprit. Have you got another one you can try?
