I don't see that this problem was solved. Adding additional information.

The eMachines T6410 Desktop PC uses an MSI MS-7145 motherboard.
(MicroStar International ),

MSI Support > MS-7145 > Downloads > Motherboard Manual,

To the right of the bold - RS480M - click on Download.

On the next page the Download tab will be highlighted.
Hover your mouse cursor on the Download tab.
In the drop down list click on - Manual

Now click on the blue -
This is a ZIP file.
(A ZIP file is used to send large amounts of information more easily)

On the next page click on the country nearest yours.
A small window will come up on the right -

Make sure the small circle to the left of Save File, has a green dot in it.
If not, click in the small empty circle.
Now go below, and click on OK.

A small window will come up on the Left.
In the heading at the top of the window, tells you where the file will download to.
The heading may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads, in the wording. Write it down.

[ The above is for WinXP.
With a computer using Win Vista, or Win 7, it is Desktop, or Documents, or Downloads ]

Desktop: The file will be on your desktop screen.
(Yellow folder icon with a zipper on it, and E7145v2.1, next to it )

My Documents: Click on Start, then My Documents.

[ Click on the Windows logo button, then on Documents, for Win Vista, and Win 7 ]

Downloads: Click on Start, then My Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

When you see the file name DOUBLE-click on it.
Under the heading - Folder Tasks - to the left, click on Extract all files.

In the Extraction Wizard that comes up, click on Next, Next, and Finish, at the bottom of each window.

In the small window that comes up, DOUBLE-click on E7145v2.1 next to the Adobe PDF icon. (6,288 KB)

At the top of the PDF file is the page number box. It is to the right of the Down Arrow.
The PDF file page numbers, do not always match the actual manual page numbers.

Go to Page 15.
You can use the Down Arrow to arrive at Page 15, or you can do this;

1) Put your mouse cursor in the page number box.
Left-click once. (Everything in the page number box, is now highlighted in Blue)

2) Type 15.
3) Press the Enter key.

Page 15 shows you the Motherboard Layout.
Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right, the Front Panel header is at the Bottom/Right corner.

JFP1 and JFP2.
(Junction Front Panel 1, and Junction Front Panel 2)

(Plastic front of the computer is the Front Panel.

The area of pins on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header )

The Front Panel header has Two rows of pins.
The Top row is numbered EVEN.
The Bottom row is numbered ODD.

From LEFT to RIGHT the pins on the TOP, are numbered;
2, 4, 6, 8, and 10

Take a picture of your motherboard and then make printed copy. Call the technical service department and give them the make of your computer and model number, also give them the name of the motherboard and its model number with revisions. Ask them to look up the wiring diagram showing the external connector hook-up from the case to the motherboard. Write down the pin connections on the photo. You can share this information with other people who are having the same problems. Remember to always take a pictures of your set up before disassembling the unit. So you can reassemble the unit correctly. These units are so proprietary that it is almost impossible to find this information without their help. Hope this helps you with your problem.

My gateway 503gr will not power on when you press the power button has power to mother board every thing is plugged in there is a green light on the power supply and the mother board and the power switch...

This could have a bad power supply (in this case I would try a new one just in case).
All other things being normal, I would guess a bad motherboard.
The best thing to do is disconnect everything but the CPU and memory and try to start it.
If it starts, then start connecting stuff until it doesn't start--this will tell you what is bad.

GT5220 won't turn on

My motherboard was replaced twice by the gateway people. Luckily I bought it at costco and it has a two year warranty through them because gateway didn't want to deal with me until costco techies made them. I have the same model and had the same problem

The motherboard in your computer is an MSI MS-7145, which is also called RS480M. You can download a copy of the manual here. The front panel connections are on page 2-20.

Looking at the header JFP1, pins 1 through 9 (odd numbers) are the front row, pins 2 through 10 are the back. Pin 10 is the missing pin. The power switch connects to pins 6 and 8. The power LED connects to pins 2 and 4. The HDD LED connects to pins 1 and 3. The reset button, if used, connects to pins 5 and 7.

Replacing Power Button Circuit Card on Gateway W730 K8X Laptop

The instructions for replacing the keyboard include the cover you have to remove to replace the power button pcb. The power button pcb is attached to the bottom of the bezel that covers the hinges/button array. In a nutshell you just remove the 2 screws indicated in the instructions, pry the hinge covers up a bit, then gently pry the bezel up from the bottom. remove the ribbon cable, pull back the small piece of tape, remove the three small screws holding the pcb on, and remove it from the spring clips.

Hi, that machine uses a mainboard found in a few different brand computers. It's called a Seabreeze T3.
