    Try reseating the memory sticks one at a time in each slot one at a time and see if that does the trick.

It could possibly be the motherboard, but there's a couple of steps you should try first. First and foremost, unplug the laptop, and remove the battery, then press and hold the power button on the laptop down for about 15-20 seconds. Then plug the power back in (leave the battery removed) and try again.

If you still have no video, then power off the laptop once more, remove the power, go underneath the laptop, and using a #0 or #1 philips jewellers screwdriver, remove the plastic cover that holds the RAM, and remove both modules. With them removed, once more, plug the power back in and turn the laptop on. If the computer begins emitting a series of loud beeps (to denote a "No RAM" POST error), then it may very well be one of the sticks of RAM that are at fault, in which case you'll have to reinsert each RAM module, one by one, powering the unit on each time a stick is inserted, to see if you can isolate as to which RAM stick is the faulty one.

However, if you don't get the beep, or swapping sticks of RAM doesn't seem to help resolve the issue, then you do have an issue with the motherboard, in which case it would have to be replaced. The motherboard for this model of gateway is simply called "Gateway notebook Motherboard". The part # from gateway's website is 102156 (you may have to consult an authorized service center to have the part special-ordered in for you)

try removing everything you do not need from the motherboard - all USB connectors, front panel connectors (except power switch), ide and sata cables, PCI boards, sound connectors, just leave the essentials for the motherboard to function (also check for lid switch). Make sure you have 12v connected if applicable.
If it still does not power up with a new PSU it is likely that the motherboard is faulty.

Gateway 550GR Still Not Booting Up


Have you tried a different power-supply?
A power-supply must emit a few different voltages; if it fails to output one of those voltages, the fans still may spin, and the CD-drive-tray may still open, but the motherboard may not be getting the correct voltages.

Disconnect the AC power, and then open the case. Look at the capacitors (those black/silver cylinders with an X in their silver-coloured top).
Any capacitor that is bulging, i.e., does NOT have a perfectly-flat top, is leaking. Any capacitor that seems to have rusty-brown "sand" on top also is leaking. Either way, it's time to replace the motherboard.

Intel D945GCLF - No post, No video Signal


Sounds like your wiring isnt right on the on off power. Make sure your power supply can handle this MotherboardAdapter cables are available that allow the incorrect use of older ATX or SFX power supplies in place of an ATX12V or SFX12V power supply. Intel does not recommend the use of these cables. These cables convert a standard 1x4 peripheral connector to the ATX12V 2x2 connector. An ATX12V or SFX12V with the 2x2 connector is required for all Pentium® 4 processor based Intel® Desktop Boards. Using the 1x4 converter cables can lead to system component or power supply damage and/or boot failures. The ATX12V and SFX12V power supply design guides (http://www.formfactors.org/)* recommend a minimum of 8A at 12Volts to properly power any Pentium 4 processor based Intel® Desktop Board. Standard ATX and SFX power supplies typically provide approximately 5A of current, which is not capable of reliably powering the Pentium 4 processor based Intel® Desktop Board. And I think the motherboards going to look for a formatted hard drive wired to the motherboard It wont boot off that USB stick.

No display on screen and solid amber light on pcs' power button


Well hate to say it but that sort of problem results from a faulty motherboard or processor so if you say that you have changed the motherboard then you problem lies with you processor chip.

it seems to be an issue with the power supply as you already tried replacing the motherboard
power supply will be less expensive do try to get it replaced first

do check that monitor iss fine
unplug the blue VGA cable which connects your monitor to the tower
if a 4 colored box moves all over the screen the monitor is fine
and if it doesn't
get the monitor either repaired or get it replaced.
