Power supplies come with a lot of wires that do not get plugged into the system. Please take a few good pictures of what your talking about for conformation.
You can email them to frankzcomputers@gmail.com

I have a gateway 506gr the monitor says self test, check your pc and signal cable monitor is working. nothing responds whats up?


Try turning the monitor after the pc is on. I have one monitor that shows that message if it is turned on before the pc is. If that doesn't work then there's 2 things i can think of. One is the cable is damaged, big issue if is integrated, and second the video card. Even if it is integrated you can get a replacement one and disable the first one if it gives you problems.

Is there a video controller driver for the 506GR model when running windows 7? the gateway web site does not support.


The 506GR has an old Intel (Augsburg) motherboard, and onboard video. The hardware is from 2005, and has no support for Windows 7. Unfortunately, you will need to upgrade.

I have a gateway 506gr with a Bestec atx300 psu. I was having problems being able to turn the computer on, then one day it would not turn on at all. I can push and hold the power button, and hear the psu...


Your psu is works fine.
First open cpu cabinet and find motherbord.
Pull CMOS cell from m/b for 10 minutes.
Refix RAM Memory.
Pull procesor fan and processor clean dust from all parts.
Then fix processor fan and processor.
Reconnect ATX connector to m/b.
Remove pci cards from PCI slot then check.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

Gateway 506GR Front Panel


did you replace the motherboard? if you did with a non gateway replacement there is a good chance you will have to re-wire the buttons.

if not, just look for an oddly shaped "gateway" plug that plugs into the receiving socket on the MB. If you dont own a multi meter and soldering iron now is a good time to invest. also get some wire strippers and cutters.

Gateway desktop 506gr power issue narrowed down?


That was pretty unclear.  Is there a kind of burning symptom that suggests a short to you?  It seems to me that what happened is that either there was a power outage and your system thus shut down...all you'd have to to would be hit the computer's power button to turn it back on...or a fan somewhere died and therefore the system won't power up until you replace or repair that.  At least get a vacuum in there and brush out the dust so you can work.

What happened when you got a simplified system that 'worked'?  Was the power supply's fan spinning, at least?  What's the green light on, anyhow?

Loud noise


Typical problem in most computers, the fan is experiencing a "burn out." This means there is either something caught in the fan causing it to create noise, or the motor is going bad. there are two fixes for this problem.
1) open you computer's case according to its manual and remove the system cooling fan and give it a thorough cleaning.
2) you may need to replace the cooling fan with its recommended replacement model.

Hope this helps!
