Not all computer power supplies have a switch on the back. Unplug the computer for a minute, then plug it back in and try again. If still no result you have a bad component somewhere. No way to tell for sure which one without opening the case. Likely culprits: power supply, dust build-up, components need to be reseated, memory, video card, or motherboard failure.

Just pay attention to the dismantling not the screen replacing, once you open up the screen its pretty self explanatory how to replace it.

Gateway computer LX series need to recycle power before it will go into post.


The only reason I can see in a no POST issue is because of a defective hardware in your computer.

1. Try to remove all the cables at the back of your computer tower and power cycle it for 15 seconds.
2. Plug the power cord back in and the monitor cable only then start your computer.
3. Put the devices one-by-one to your computer tower until you see the faulty device.
4. If no faulty device detected after connecting all the connection at the back of your computer tower.
5. Try to open up your computer tower and reseat your Video card, memory, HD cables and CPU as well.

Let's investigate if the problem will reoccur.

I think that motherboard is actually an Intel D865GLC; there's lots of info available on the intel site. Here's the manual: (http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d865glc/sb/cs-008973.htm).
Look at the manual and see if it matches up. If it is a D865, it looks like it uses DDR memory, up to 3 or 4 GB (4 slots)

Look in the back of the Gateway where you currently have the video cable connected. If there are two connectors, (Side by Side) there than disconnect & re-connect to the other. Your display should come up. Don't be fooled. Most Pc's that have no display on their monitor is not a monitor problem but a computer problem.
