Question about Gateway Profile 5 PC Desktop
Now that Micron is dead and gone, Gateway no longer supports the Professional products. I just received a stripped Gateway Profile 6 (the previous department cannibalized the RAM and destroyed the HDD for 'security reasons'). the CPU is Pentium Duo chip. I need to reconfigure this beast but can't get it to POST. the power button does not light up. I've tried one 1GB stick of PC25300 and two 512 sticks of PC24300 with no luck -- just some coded flashes from the DVD drive. The drive will open and shut. I've tried a bootable Win XP CD with no luck. And I've verified the LCD with the DVI signal from another PC. Does anyone have the LED codes, or know the minimum memory configuration (can it fire on one stick, what's the spec?).
Strip it down further to find out the issue. Disconnect all HDs all CD ROMs and remove the memory. Leave the bare minium. Screen and board and see if it boots. If it boots add a memory stick then on next boot if its good add a HD and so on
