SOURCE: Gateway 200arc motherboard problem

If there are two wires running from the power button on your case to the motherboard, take them off and try jumpering those two terminals with a jumper or something that will make contact for just a second and them take back off. Your power button may have fried along with the power supply.

Gateway 500GR Mother board Connector S Wiring

You are correct so far.

This is a perfect example of using deductive reasoning based on intelligent thought.

'Armed' with that I can see you will go far in life.

Gateway Support > Gateway 500GR Desktop PC > Main Support page,

Click on Components in the list.
Scroll down. Under the bold black heading - Motherboards - click on
102007 - Intel (Augsburg) No CPU Motherboard R0

Click on Specifications.
Chipset: Intel 915G Chipset

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

In the photo the Front Panel header is marked by the letter S.

Let's go to Intel Support, and download the Product Guide for an Intel D915GAV motherboard,

Click on the blue -
Intel Desktop Board D915GAV Product Guide - (English) PDF
Scroll your mouse cursor to the bottom/middle of the page, to bring the 'ghosted out' navigation guide into view.

Click on the Adobe PDF icon to the far right.
(When you hover your mouse cursor over it, "Show Adobe Reader toolbar" is briefly shown)

Different design motherboard in the layout of certain headers, and connectors, but same Ol' Front Panel header pinout, Intel uses for 10 pin Front Panel header's.
Whether it is an Intel O.E.M. motherboard, or one they made for a pre-built computer manufacturer.

Front Panel header for Gateway 500GR, is next to the bottom edge of the motherboard, and all the way towards the right.
5 pins across the Top row, 4 pins across the bottom row.

Pins on the Top row are numbered ODD.
Pins on the Bottom row are numbered EVEN.

TOP row; Starting on the RIGHT side going towards the Left;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

BOTTOM row; Starting on the Right side going towards the Left;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO Pin 10.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light Emitting Diode)

Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire. If the HDD LED is dim when the Harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

C) Pin 9 is N/C. No Connection. Pin reserved for the factory.
(5 Volts DC)

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED.
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the PWR ON LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

F) Again, there is No pin 10.

How do I re-conect the power on and off switch to the motherboard?

They should be labeled. The Power switch plug should say pwr. The Hard Drive Led should say hdd, etc. Look on the motherboard for the inscribed label.

Need pinout for Gateway E4300 motherboard. Front panel pins and audio pins need homes.

The connections are usually printed on the motherboard near the pins.
Power, HD, etc near the front of the case, audio usually near the back low down on the board.

I just moved my pc and not when I play sound I get nothing. which input do it use for the speaker jack. The computer is a gateway gt5662

Normally the ports on the tower are color coded. If you are using an analog audio output device connected through a standard 2 channel jack, the correct port to plug your speakers should be colred green.

Driver will not boot up when i try to power it on.

Hi have you check the AC source to see if there is current flowing in from the outlet, if yes, try change the power cable that connects your GT5662 Desktop PC to AC outlet.

If it did not still power on, i think the mother board is bad, try change the mother board.

Compliments and wish you best of luck

New Problem

The manual you need will be on the board manufacturers web page, howevr I will bet you have the case power switch and perhaps the reset switch on the wrong pins on the mother board. To check this, remove the switch leads from the mother board, then use a small screw driver and bridge the pins on the mother board a pair at a time. All of these leads plug on to the board in a line and not across the two lines of pins. when you get the mother board to fire up by this method geet a torch and look closely alongside the pins you will see the letters PWR SW or RS SW. It does not matter what polarity these two sets of leads are plugged onto both will work. The LED lights on the case front will only work if the polarity is correct but it will not do any harm if they are backwords. On the board you should se two sets of pins marked HDD and PWR these are the led light pins you will know you have them right when the usual red and green lights are working at the front of your tower.
