Question about Gateway CUSTOM E-SERIES MID TOWER 6/7BAY ANTI-THEFT CABLE LOCK (00619109300012)
I turned off my gateway e series desktop pc this morning. When I came back to it this afternoon, the power light was still on but the computer wasn't running. When trying to turn the unit back on, there is simply no response. First time having this issue. Appreciate your help. Thanks.
I have the same problem i don't think its the power supply... my power see if your power supply has a "test button" on it and see if the fans work when you press that button

Don't do what your friend suggested
it won't help if you blew the power supply.Which i think you did
when power suddenly goes off your4 supply can be burned out
if you are getting know sounds then thats what more then likely happened.
My suggestion would be to remove the power supply take it to a small pc repair store they'll test it for you on the spot.
Most new supplies cost around 40.00

Hold down the "Fn" key. Press the up-arrow to see if the screen brightness increases. Some computers also use the "F6" or "F7" keys to increase screen brightness.
Hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the laptop. Remove the AC adapter from the computer, close the screen, and then turn the PC over.
Slide the battery latch to eject the battery. Pull the battery out of its compartment. Turn the computer back over, open the lid, and insert the edge of a flathead screwdriver or other flat, solid object beneath the bezel above the keyboard.
Wedge the edge of the keyboard bezel off of the top cover. Work your way along the edge of the keyboard bezel to loosen it. Pull the bezel off the laptop.
Trace the cable coming from the laptop screen to the connector found beneath the bezel. Reconnect the display cable to the motherboard if the cable has come loose from the connector.
Line up the tabs on the bezel with the slots along the top of the keyboard. Insert the right edge of the bezel into the gap above the keyboard, and then push the bezel back in place.
Turn the computer back on. If the laptop screen is still blacked out, connect an external monitor to the video port on the side of the PC to confirm that the video card isn't defective. If the external monitor works, the LCD screen could be broken. If the monitor doesn't work, the motherboard or video card might need to be replaced.
hope this helps
