You can check temps in your BIOS. That'll tell you if it's an overheating issue.

If temps are normal, suspect a problem PSU or even other hardware. My first guess would be overheating though.

GM5664 shuting down


You can check temps in your BIOS. That'll tell you if it's an overheating issue.

If temps are normal, suspect a problem PSU or even other hardware. My first guess would be overheating though.
You can check for shorts on the board or bad capacitors. But these are pretty classic symptoms of an electrical or overheating problem. Your temperatures aren't indicating overheating, so there's something funky with the electrical/power system.

The fact that it shuts down with a higher performance mode to me would indicate faulty power.

It sort of seems to me that either you have two bad PSUs (unlikely but entirely possible) or you have a motherboard problem. Replacing a power supply is both cheaper and easier than replacing a motherboard. Now, if you get a third PSU and you're still having the same problems it might be time to look at the motherboard and it's components.

and also Swap the power supply for something like this one:

Newegg.com - SeaSonic S12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

/or/

Newegg.com - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply

I can not get 7.1 HDMI audio output on my Gateway GM5664 running Windows 7.


While DVI and HDMI offer compatible video lines, the DVI connection offers support for two analog audio channels only and cannot transport data packets required for digital audio. You will not get anything beyond 2.1 audio across the dongle.

If you have a HDMI connector on your graphics board and your external hardware, try to use a proper HDMI cable.

I need a wiring diagram for a GM5664


Gateway Support > Gateway GM5664 Desktop PC > Downloads and Support Documents,

http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=2734

Click on the Support Documents tab
(Drivers, BIOS, Applications, Patches, Support Documents, etc)

Click on the blue - 1015004R - Support Documents

Click on Product Views in the list.
Click on Inside View

Go back to the main page
Click on Components
Go to the heading - Motherboards

4006254R - ECS MCP61PM-GM
(AM2 processor socket, MicroATX form factor motherboard)

Gateway Support is of no further help to us. Product Views for the motherboard does not work.

ECS motherboards use a 10-pin Front Panel header, if memory serves.
One pin is not used. (Not there. Number 10 pin)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/GATEWAY-GM5664-MCP61PM-GM-MOTHERBOARD-4GB-Ram-AMD-Athlon-II-Dual-Core-3-0GHz-/360423046239?pt=Motherboards&hash=item53eae33c5f

On the above link scroll the page down, until you come to the enlarged photo of the motherboard, with - Click an Image to Enlarge - under it.
Click on the photo view all the way to the right, on the top photos.

The view shows the 4 orange SATA headers on the motherboard.
(The whitish 24-pin ATX main power cable connector, is shown at the front, with the blue IDE 40-pin header behind it)

To the left of the orange SATA headers (4) is the Front Panel header.
Black rectangular connector with 2 rows of pins.
One row has 4 pins, the other row has 5 pins.

[ The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header ]

Finding where number 1 pin is, is the problem.
Next to the number 1 pin, and silk-screened on the motherboard, is the number 1.

Looking at the rectangular connector (Front Panel header) you will note one pin is missing. This is where number 10 pin would be.

On the opposite side, and opposite end, is number 1 pin.

The pins are numbered Odd, 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9, on the same side.
(Or row)
The pins are numbered Even, 2, 4, 6, and 8, on the other side.
(Or row)

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light.
(HDD LED light)
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.

If the Harddrive activity LED light is dim when operating, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

C) Pin 9 is Not Connected. N/C. Reserved for the factory

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.

If the Power On LED light is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch. (Located inside the plastic Power On button assembly. It is an ATX power on switch)

http://www.fixya.com/support/t614458-hp_mcp61pm_hm_motherboard_diagram

As for the orange SATA headers on the motherboard. The SATA harddrive should plug into the lowest number of SATA header.
It may be labled SATA 0, or SATA 1.

The beauty of SATA however, is that you can plug the harddrive into anyone of those SATA headers. BIOS will find the device. (Harddrive)

If you need guidance in connecting any other cables, such as power cables, or optical drives, etc, post back in a Comment.

GM5664 will not boot up, What can I do?


There's something very wrong with the boot order from your pc: apparently now it's set to boot from network - something that is done only in network servers.  This happens when the BIOS battery (or the BIOS chip itself) start failing - it's time to start saving for a new pc, this motherboard has started to show signs of old age.
Enter the BIOS and set a new order: put the cd first, then the hard disk second and finally disable all the others. Save, exit and it should boot just fine

My computer mysteriously now does not show my second internal hard drive (Gateway GM5664). I tried to do a factory reset and had a power outage during the middle. I used the Windows vista OS disc that came...


Well your second hard drive did go belly up so what you need to do is get a new hard drive because from what you have explained to me it's fried. Now one other way that you can try and get it back on there is to boot up your computer but before it goes to the windows screen go into bios and select boot options and make sure that it's checked as a secondary if it already is then you need to go get a new hard drive which runs about $25.00.
