Question about Gateway 838GM (RB838GM) PC Desktop
Does the computer beep when you turn it on? If so, count the beeps and google it. Something like "computer beep 3 times at post" or similar.
If it does not beep, remove all buy one of your memory chips. (mind your static charge, keep in touch with your computer case so you don't fry your mobo or memory) Will the system post with only one chip? If not, try all of your memory chips one at a time. Post now? If so, you can narrow down the issue.
If this doesn't work, remove all of the cards. (video, sound, network, etc) Turn the computer back on. If it still does not beep, it is very likely that the CPU is the culprit, with a slight left field chance of it being the power supply.
