How do I check to see if the power supply is working?

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the main wires of the Front Panel go to; is the Front Panel header.

JFP1 is Junction Front Panel 1.
Better method IMHO is to state as Front Panel - Junction 1, so it's easier to understand.

Just some 'trivia' that I thought I would post to you.

Would however like to post;

Anti-Static Precautions

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
Relieve your body of Static BEFORE reaching inside your computer.

(The Static? More than likely you won't see it, or feel it.
Your computer will,.....POOF! )

Computer ON a table, computer Unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted surface of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal case upon your return.

Since I'm here;

The method to test if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply; is to use a jumper wire on the 24-pin ATX main power wire's connector,

This is an example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

A jumper wire is used to BRIEFLY connect the Green wire, to ANY Black wire.
The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire. Abbreviated as PS_ON.

ANY Black wire you see is a Ground wire.
(And that goes for ANYWHERE in the computer)

The preferred jumper wire is a straightened out paperclip.
It is bent into a U-shape. Turn it upside down, and that is how it's used.
The top is wrapped a few times with black plastic electrical tape.
This taped area is for your fingers, and thumb to hold onto.
The 'legs' that come down on each side, are what is used.

One leg slides down, into the back of the ATX main power cable's connector, into the socket hole with the Green wire in it.
[The BACK of the connector is where the wires go in ]

Slides down RIGHT NEXT TO the green insulation of the wire, and goes down in far enough, to touch a female metal terminal.

All wires going into the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector, end in this style of female metal terminal,

Looking at the middle photo of the Playtool link, you can barely see the openings of the female metal terminal connectors.
They look like small brass rings.

The other 'leg' of the U-shaped jumper wire, goes down into a socket hole, with ANY Black wire in it.

24-pin ATX main power cable is plugged in, just like the photo to the Right, in the Playtool link.
Power Supply plugged into power.

U-shaped jumper wire is used Briefly. No more than 2 seconds.
[The Power On Switch is a Momentary Contact Switch ]

What is the Voltage involved in the Soft Power On circuit?
5 Volts DC.
In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.

Just want you to know, so you won't think I could lead you into being Shocked.
Not saying there won't be a small spark, though.
You may wish to wear a glove on the 'jumper wire hand'.

IF the Power Supply comes on, you have a bad Power On switch.
(You noticed before that, but this would have led you right to it)

IF the Power Supply does NOT come on, you have a bad Power Supply.

Going further;
The Power Supply in your computer is an SMPS.
Switched-Mode Power Supply,

Another widely used term for Power Supply is the abbreviation
PSU. Power Supply Unit.

It converts the dangerous high AC voltage, 100 to 240 Volts, from your home or business; into 3 low DC Voltages.
The dangerous voltage is contained IN the metal case of the Power Supply.

The 3 low DC Voltages are;
A) 3.3 Volts DC
B) 5 Volts DC
C) 12 Volts DC

Gateway Support > Gateway GT5056 Desktop PC > Main Support page,

In the list click on Components,

In the list go to the bold black subheading -> Motherboards
Click on the blue title ->
105552 - Foxconn C51GU01Motherboard

On this page click on -> Product Views

Now you can see where every cable goes on the motherboard.
Let's take -> Q - Front Panel Connector, for an example,

Now you can see where every wire goes on the Front Panel header,

I don't know the color code of the twisted wires, that come from the Front Panel.
If -> I had to trace them, I would remove the Front Panel, and trace them to the;
A) Power On switch (PWR SW, or simply SW)
B) Power On LED (Light) (PWR LED)
C) Reset switch, (IF used) (RST SW)
D) HarDDrive activity LED (Light) (HDD LED)

If I were a betting man, I would bet the Red and White twisted pair of wires went to Pins 6 and 8. Power On switch.

Blue and White twisted pair of wires to the Power On LED. (Light)
Pins 2 and 4.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

[I know. There's 5 minutes of your life you'll never get back.
I just posted the above, in case you run into this problem someday, and it isn't a loose Front Panel wire ]

After i turn on my gateway model GT5404, the three fans turn on for 3-5 seconds, then stop spinning and my system does not turn on

Yes. Exactly. You have found the problem.

Uses an ATX form factor Power Supply. One that is common in a LOT of desktop computers. Readily available.

Gateway Support indicates there are three generic Power Supply makers, for the Power Supply in your computer,
Delta, HiPro, and Bestec. (Same one's for HP too)

Indicates the form factor is uATX/BTX.
Whatever, Gateway.

An ATX Power Supply's case dimensions are approximately -
6 Inches Wide, 5.5 Inches Long, and 3.5 Inches Tall.

Power cabling is also a designator when referring to ATX.
The new Power Supply's on the market, cover ATX power cabling, and more.

This is an example of an economical, yet reliable, Power Supply, that will work,

Has all the power cables you will need, plus more. Tie the unused power cables up out of the way. (USE plastic ties)
Concerned it is a 500 Watt unit, and not a 300 Watt unit as came with your computer?

No need to be.
1) A computer ONLY uses the power it needs, and NO more.
If you are surfing the internet, and the computer only needs a 100 Watts, it will ONLY use 100 Watts.

Playing an intensive game, or using an intensive program?
Could use the whole 500 Watts.

2) Will it harm your computer? No.
You could use a 10,000 Watt Power Supply, and it won't harm your computer. (10,000 Watt is an exaggeration)
Because a computer will ONLY use the power it needs, and NO more.

Need help from someone who has a Gateway GM5072 Desktop

Monitor, and monitor cable has been checked out, on another KNOWN to be working computer, and check good, check the Power Supply.

1) Yes I know logic dictates graphics should come next, after checking the monitor, and monitor cable.

2) Yes I know LED lights are lit, and fans are spinning.

Hear me out;

A) If ALL of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 WATT of power.

B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

C) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts of power. Just depends on what Processor it is.

Gateway GM5072 Desktop PC?

Specifications >
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+

Look under TDP in the chart. (Thermal Design Point)
Can use Up To 89 Watts.

Your Power Supply could have a weak voltage power rail.
Not enough power to turn the Processor on.

(There are 3 main voltage power rails;
A) 3.3 Volt power rail
B) 5 Volt power rail
C) 12 Volt power rail
Your Power Supply is a converter. Converts 100 to 240 Volts AC to the low DC voltages presented above.
{In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries store 3 Volts DC )

No Processor operating, no computer operating. No computer operating, there isn't going to be a video signal produced by the computer.
This = No Signal on monitor, or monitor goes into sleep mode.

You press the Power On button. The plastic assembly of the Power On button, presses against the Power On switch contained inside it.

The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.
The brief closing of the Power On switch closes a circuit.
The Soft Power On circuit.
(Abbreviated as PS_ON)

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

Closing the Power On switch briefly redirects the 5 volt standby power, to 'excite' the Power Supply, and turn the Power Supply on.
(Sounds like a steamy novel, huh?)

The first chipset (I.C.) to receive power is the BIOS chipset.

The Basic Input/Output System program is initialized.
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 and Windows 7 are two examples of an O/S.

The TWO main problems for desktop computer failure, is the computer is dirty inside, and Power Supply failure.

Do you have a multimeter, or access to one?
If not, do you have access to a KNOWN to be good, Compatible power supply, that you could briefly use for a test unit?

[An economical multimeter can be purchased for around $5 to $12. Available in a multitude of stores. An auto parts store is but one example. A lot of chain stores carry them. ]

Let's check out the power first. Post back in a Comment.

My gateway dx4300-03 starts up fine and then about 5 minutes into working the monitor goes blank and the computer seems to go into sleep mode and won't restart until I unplug from the back and re plug in. ...

By Cyclontech!

Hi, The solution to fix the problem is by changing your power supply. Just make sure that you replace it with a 500W or higher and not with the same 300W which does not have enough power for this system, plus it is defective. I have changed the power supply to 4 diferent gateway PCs same model dx4300. And all 4 are working perfect. And run a check disk on CMD to fix the disk errors that were created every time you unplugged it and turned it on again.

I have the exact same problem. Only the fan runs & light blinks yellow a few times thrn cuts off. The power button won't turn blue. This happens every 5 or 6 months the motherbboard goes out. Best buy...

No, it's bad capacitors. When the power supply went the first time around (which I assume is what happened) if the power supply and motherboard were not BOTH replaced, then it'll just keep happening.
When one goes out, both usually need to be replaced.
See for the "Legend of the bad caps". True or not? I don't know, but it's a fun read anyway.

After a power outage, tried to power computer. All I got was flashing keyboard and power light while I held in the power button. As soon as I let go, everything goes dard. No start up sounds or anything....

Sounds like it could be the power supply was damaged from the power outage. If you have another PC you could pull the ATX power supply out and install it in the gateway and see if it boots up. Power supplies are fairly inexpensive so look for an aftermarket one...buying a replacement from Gateway will cost alot more. If the power supply turns out to be good then remove one device at a time the try to boot up. Sometimes a bad cd-rom drive or harddrive can cause a problem. My best guess it is the power supply.

My gateway 540 gr start for 5 seconds and turn off, the fan starts to then turn off.

Disconnect everything except for the power to the motherboard. If you turn on the computer and everything still turns off, then try another known working power supply. If the machine stays turned on then connect power to your drives one at a time with the computer off each time to see which drive is the culprit.

If everything still turns off then reseat the CPU and the memory and if it still turns off then that means the motherboard is bad and it would need to be replaced.

PC power supply fuse - T6.3h 250v engraved on end

T = time delay (slow blow)
6.3A = 6.3 Amperes maximum load
H = HRC - high rupture current (as you specified a ceramic fuse)
250V = 250V AC rated

other letters you may see
FF = ultra fast blow
F = fast blow
M = medium blow
TT = very slow blow
L = low blow current
H = high blow current (glass package)
S = sand filled
