You're best bet is putting it on Ebay with a reserve or starting bid, or you can finding a local shop that sells used computers and see if they will put it on consignment. They probably won't give near what it's worth, just for the simple fact of turning a profit. At my shop we offer about a third of the asking price, which is negoticable.

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.

USB Ports


one way would be to download and install latest device drivers from the net. it should help.. if you are using win XP, there is likely a BIOS or Windows configuration problem. On some computers there is a configuration option in the BIOS that asks whether an IRQ should be assigned to USB. Although the option's actual wording varies among BIOS manufacturers, you must enable this option by setting it to either On or Yes (depending on your BIOS manufacturer and BIOS version). Otherwise no USB devices will work on XP. A problem with Windows XP’s USB Controller configuration can also prevent any USB devices from working. To determine whether the USB controllers are working properly, open Device Manager and expand the Universal Serial Bus Controllers node. Beneath this node, you should see a USB Universal Host Controller and a USB Root Hub. Depending on your PC, there will either be a USB Universal Host Controller and a USB Root Hub listed for each of your computer’s USB ports or a USB Universal Host Controller and USB Root Hub for multiple ports
