Is there a in-line fuse on the motherboard? Check you have the correct model and power type PSU and verify your cable connections.

SOURCE: Bad motherboard or power supply which fries motherboard

Gateway hasn't had any recalls on it that I know of. maybe it is not the mother board. It might be the hard drive. Hard drives can do that aswell. When I fix a computer the first thing I check is the hard drive. A little bit of advice with computers. Start with the small things first and work Your way up to the big stuff. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Dell dimension 2400 blinking amber light

1. Remove All External Devices
2. Check the Computer's Power LED
3. If the power LED has not changed unplug the Power Cable From the Computer Disconnect All Hard Drive Power and Data Cables and power on the computer. If still no go.
4. Remove All PCI, PCI-E, and AGP Expansion Cards .
5. Remove All Memory From the Computer
6. Reseat the ATX and 12-Volt Connections . The ATX connector will be a 4 pin square connector connecting to the motherboard from the power supply and the 12-Volt Connection would be the biggest connector with a lot of colored wires.
7. If still no go.
8. Disconnect the Power Connection to the Chassis Fan
9. If the light still flashes then it could be a power supply or motherboard failure. Try a good know power supply first and if that does not fix the problem it is the motherboard. Also check the back of the tower for 4 lights lables ABCD or 1234.
Rate if useful.

SOURCE: replaced Gateway 105552 Foxconn C51GU01 Motherboard with another

Was this also the original problem pedro1952?

Computer doesn't start up?

Removed Ram Memory, and no BIOS Beep Code/s.
Shouldn't have been. Ram Memory needs to be in there.

Primer:
You press the Power On button. This in turn presses against a Power On switch, located within the plastic Power On button.

When the Power Supply is plugged into power, there is a 5 Volt Standby power, present in the Power Supply.

Pressing the Power On switch closes a circuit, that directs the 5 Volt Standby power to the Power Supply.

This excites the Power Supply, and turns the Power Supply on. (No don't go there, lol)
The Power Supply directs power to the motherboard.

The first chip to receive power is the BIOS chip.
(Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit )

The BIOS program is 'burned' into the BIOS chip.

BIOS looks to see what devices are installed, DOES a Ram Memory count, TURNS the Processor on, and hands the computer over to the Operating System.
(Windows XP is one example of an O/S)

Unless you KNOW the motherboard is bad, I suggest you check the voltage power rails of the Power Supply, for the correct voltages.

[Unless you KNOW the motherboard is bad. One case in point, is that you have observed bad Electrolytic Capacitors on the motherboard. If this is true, then yes, it's obvious the motherboard is bad.

To expound:

A) http://www.capacitorlab.com/visible-failures/index.htm ]

Unless you know for a fact that the motherboard is bad, I suggest your Power Supply is bad. Weak Voltage power rail.
Not enough power to turn the Processor on.

Your Power Supply is rated in Wattage.
(Voltage times Amperage = Wattage)

If this is in reference to a Gateway GT5058, it comes with a 300 Watt power supply.

Gateway Support > GT5058 desktop computer > Support Documents,

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1008847/1008847nv.shtml

(In the main menu shown, left-click on Components.
Scroll down to the heading - Power Supplies)

1) ALL the LED lights use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts

3) A typical Processor uses 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is, as to how much Wattage it will use, at maximum operating capacity.

The Gateway GT5058 comes with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+,
processor.
(In the main menu left-click on - Specifications)

Uses a Socket 939 processor socket.
(Components >Motherboards > Specifications > CPU Support)

The AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ may use up to 89 Watts. (That uses a Socket 939 processor socket)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_amd_athlon_64_processors#Athlon_64_X2

Power for LED lights, plus perhaps spin fans a few times, but isn't enough to turn the Processor on.

This is why you can connect the optical drives, with the 24-pin ATX main power cable unconnected, and they have enough power to open and close, and the LED lights, light.

You plug the 24-pin ATX main power cable back in, and you are providing power for the Processor.

There isn't enough power for the Processor, and especially not enough for the optical drives, AND the Processor at the same time.

The Processor is 'stealing' all of the power. Not enough power to open and close the optical drive tray's, or even light the LED lights.

No Processor operating, there isn't anything to search for the boot sector on the Harddrive.

The harddrive may not have enough power either, to spin the Platters inside.

http://computer.howstuffworks.com/hard-disk.htm


Have a cheap multimeter? Just need an economical one for this test. ($5 to $10)
You will be testing the 12 Volt power rail.
11 to 13 Volts indicates a good Power Supply
Less than 11 Volts indicates replace the Power Supply.

If not, is there a KNOWN to be Good, Compatible power supply, in an unused computer available?

KNOWN to be good.
Not one out of an old computer, that you have no idea if it's any good.

Compatible:
Has to have the correct power cables, and the correct amount of power cables.

Are you sure it is a good MB? If so double check all connections and try again. If you still have problems post back and let me know if you are getting any beeps at startup.

Gateway 503gr has no power, the standby light flashes green when I remove power. Tried new PS and the standby LED stays lit. I then tried both new and old PS disconnected from board and shorted...


Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the power supply connections and cpu fan. Install one stick of RAM and connect your monitor. Then try starting up. See if you get any BIOS boot messages. This will tell you that the board and processor are okay.

With what you say you've tried already, I'm thinking you might have a bad processor. Most every other problem would result in some kind of error like POST beep codes or messages on screen. If the system still doesn't boot with the bare minimum parts installed, replace the processor.

Gateway mt6728 doesn't switch on and the red led


Sounds like it needs a new power source or motherboard. Since it is immediately turning off after the red lights then it's probably a hardware problem since there is no time for the software to do anything.

I tried several different cards but no luck. Cards work ok on other computers.


5V Stand-By Indicator LED
The power supply will always supply a 5V standby voltage to your
motherboard so that it can power on via for example Wake On Lan
technology. This LED shows that your power supply is supplying
this standby voltage to your motherboard.n :D

You may need to replace your power supply, if the LED is flashing, it's not supplying the power the motherboard needs.
