If the MB is working fine then the power light could just be out

    Ok I did some research and your MB might need to be replaced, but first check the psu to make sure it is installed correctly.

    It's hard to say with out seeing what you have, but what did it do before you opened the case? If it worked fine then the new Psu could be incompatible or "too much" for the MB to handle.

    Reply back and let me know what you have inside exactly.

    I will try my best to figure this one out for you.

Gateway GT4016 boots but nothing shows on the monitor

Without more specific information it is hard to tell. Did you just buy a new video card? Is it the the right type? Where did you get the second card? Have you tried it in another PC or talked to the store you got it from? Maybe the source can test it. Your PC can take an optional PCI express x16. Make sure you are using the right display adapter expansion slot. Note: PCI-e is not the same as PCI-X. They are not compatible. You want PCI-e.

My gateway GT4016 does not turn on, I brought it to a computer part shop, talked to them. They told me the motherboard needs to replaced. I am not sure myself. Need advice on what what to do to find the...

About 4 years old, right?
My first test is to dust out the thing and try a new power block. (About $35 if you have to buy one - I have a spare kicking around for this)
If it still fails to turn on AT ALL, it is likely the motherboard
If it boots but does not startup properly, you may have a bad hard drive. See if it will boot to the CDROM (DVDROM)
Bad memory causes the computer to start but emit a series of beeps from the PC speaker.

Motherboard repair follows:
Look for metal cylinders wrapped in plastic (Capacitors). Look at the tops. Are any of them slightly or prominently rounded? These need replacing.
Get an experienced friend who can solder with a GOOD soldering iron. VERY CAREFULLY, replace the capacitors with the correct voltage, value and temperature rating. It is extremely easy to damage the motherboard.
No other reasonable repair for a motherboard.

Gt 4016 when I finally can get the button on, the fan runs for about 15 seconds then shuts down.

May be your motherboard is defective or else cpu temperature is high. try to see it in the bios by pressing delete botton or F2 in the startup and goto to the hardware monitor.

I have a gateway gt4016, it is not loading. it's asking for a recovery cd... so I put in the operating disc (windows xp) it's not reading it and I can't enter safe mode.

first go into the bios f2
set the boot record to boot from cd first
also on new computers it will say hit f 11 12
for boot order selection, but this has to be done fast before it tries to pick up on hard drive
if the cd player works ok
you should see "press any key to boot from cd" first, is the start of erasing your hard drive

4016 gATEWAY computer wont boot

Plug off your Hard Disk and give a try. If the system boots then, its a prob with HDD. Else, it may be because of the monitor, or the RAM module.

Thank you!
