Gateway 500XL .. sounds like the Power Supply was making a scratching grinding noise.. off/on... I first thought it was the CPU fan and changed it .. not solved... the PC just shut down... maybe...


Very easy to replace power supply as this is most likely the reason for the shut down due to heat. Make sure when ordering new power supply or buying from a computer parts store that you do not relay on them to give you the right one, you have to do your homework, after you get it do not unplug everything from the mother board, take your time and make sure that when you unplug you know where to plug back and wear anti static bracelet.

My gateway 500xl won't power on


The first thing I would try is connecting a new power supply. If you can borrow one from a friend/neighbor/family member/whatever that would be the easiest/cheapest thing to try first. Also make sure all the wires are connected to the right places and securely connected.

My Gateway 500s monitor is stuck in power save mode


Try tapping the F8 key while booting the computer, you will get the start up menu, choose safe mode, when you log on, go to the display settings, that is right click on the desktop, properties, screen saver, advanced and make sure that hibernation is off, along with turn off disks or whatever , probably see turn off monitor after XX minutes, I make ours 15 minutes (150 computers and servers), I don't let the disks turn off. Choose always on also, not home/office. Try this and see if these settings help.
