Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Gateway GT1040 which will not turn on. The power supply was tested by jumping a green and black wire which brought the fan to life. The machine was unplugged and the power button pushed for five seconds. The memory and cards were all reseated. All cabling/wiring has been checked for proper connection. Still, no LED light or power when pushing the start button. The kids tell me the machine was working fine and they noticed this yesterday when trying to boot up. Is there a way to test the Start button? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Try shorting the power pins on the Motherborad. (establish contact manual. use screw drivers such that they touch both the pins). The power pins are the one the Start button are connected to. Remove this connection alone. If this powers up the system, you would have to get the Button replaced. Else there's something wrong with the motherboard. Kindly get back for any clarifcation.
