You must register some sounds and usual noise from the case. If you consider that power supply works, try to unplug all unnesessary parts, and remain with CPU+Graphics+Memory. You are now closer to eliminate the current problem.

The Gateway website lists Win 7 drivers for the 64-bit OS. Are you trying to load a 32-bit OS instead? That's the only issue I could see being a problem here.

Gateway dx 4320 wont turn on

It could be a few things:

a faulty power switch - you say that you've changed the PSU, but did that include the switch?

it could also be a Faulty Motherboard or CPU. If either of them are fried, you won't see anything come on either.

I'd suggest checking the switch first because that's the cheapest and easiest to replace

Hey, i have a gateway gm 5472. when i try to boot the computer up, firstly, i have no video or sound, the led power light does not come on, but the fams run. I have a MCP61PM-AM motherboard in it with Amd...


I would have suspected that your RAM needs to be removed, cleaned & then replaced which more often than not sorts out the problem you have described.
But since you mention the power LED not working, I suspect that you have a faulty power supply.
Try connecting a power supply from another working PC to see if this solves the problem.
If so, power supplies are relatively inexpensive & shouldn't set you back more than $20-$30 for a descent unit.

Best wishes,

Hey, i have a gateway gm 5472. when i try to boot the computer up, firstly, i have no video or sound, the led power light does not come on, but the fams run. what could it be

unfortunately, this sounds like you may have some dead hardware, try unplugging everything from the motherboard, and only leave the cpu, one stick of ram, and plug the monitor into the on board port (remove the video card).
Now try to boot the pc.
If you have no luck, try the ram in a different slot, or try a different stick of ram.
If you still have no luck, try the cpu in another motherboard to find out if it is faulty.

If you can get your motherboard to boot with one stick of ram and the cpu in place, turn it off and start adding components one by one, booting up each time to find out which piece of hardware is causing the failure.

Gm 5472 won't turn on

This either an issue with the power supply or motherboard. The best way to test is to replace the power supply and try to power it on to see if it works.

Something else you can try is, unplug all cables from the PC, open the case and the plug only the power in, turn it on and check to see if the fans turn on. If the fans turn on then it's most likely an issue with the motherboard but the best way to test is to replace the power supply and test.

Hope this Helps
