Hi PLease try removing the Ram from from your machine and clean the surface and insert it back in case if it didn't work then you have to manually switch on the power button from the motherboard itself or check this link http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/3200Series/1008289/1008289nv.shtml

Dear Rythmickarma,
As you said the main power LED seems to be glowing but the system is not powering on... so there are few things to check here:

  1. Remove all other connections apart from Power supply, keyboard, mouse and monitor and see if that makes any difference.
  2. When the computer normally boots up there is a POST check Beep sound from CPU .. do you here any beep?
  3. When you tap on numlock key on your keyboard, do you see numlock LED toggle between ON and OFF state?
  4. Is there any signal on monitor .. When disconnected from the CPU, the monitor should show Self test signal .. does it happen?
  5. Open the chassis and check if you can feel the spinning of Hard drive...
  6. Remove the power supply cord from the back of the computer and press and hold the power button for few seconds .. this would drain the accumulated power from the CPU components .. now reconnect the power supply and see if that makes any difference..
Please try the above steps and let me know. Hope that helps.

Regards,
Srinivas

How to connect power led, power sw and hdd led on a gateway 3200S mother boad?


go to the motherboard manufacturers website and download the manual. In it there will be a picture of the motherboard connectors you are talking about then just connect them. The power switch connector can go either way as there is no polarity on it.

WHAT LIGHTS ON LINKSYS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE BLINKING


Note that incoming traffic will cause the WAN (or Internet) light to blink even if it is 'probe' traffic trying to break in to your network. Such traffic is to be expected and is the reason you have firewall functionality in your gateway router.

On the inside, there is a bit of traffic on any LAN when the computers are turned on. Messages generated by the router itself are used to find computers and printers for a lot of different legitimate reasons.

The green led is lit, indicating power is on...but no picture


If you are sure all conections are ok, then your mainboard is damaged and will need to be replaced, I recommend you to try the TV with an external video source (like ipod or DVD).

LED Display gives you your display visual alerts, signal strength, and operation mode. Here is an attached link for the manual.....http://www.uniden.com/pdf/LRD6399SWSom.pdf
But to answer your question here is what the difference between the green light and the red light are:
1. X-Band Signal Indicator—A green LED lights and blinks to
indicate the presence of an X-band radar signal. The blink rate
increases as the radar source gets closer. A distinct audio alert is
also heard.
2. K-Band Indicator— An amber (orange) LED lights and blinks to
indicate the presence of a K-band radar. The blink rate increases as
the radar source gets closer. A distinct audio alert is also heard.
3. Ka-SuperWideband Signal Indicator— A yellow LED lights and
blinks to indicate the presence of a Ka-SuperWideband radar
signal. The blink rate increases as the radar source gets closer. A
distinct audio alert is also heard.
4. Laser Signal Indicator— A red LED under L lights and blinks to
indicate the presence of a laser signal. A distinct audio alert is also
heard.
5. SWS Signal Indicator— When an early warning hazard or
informational signal is detected, the yellow SWS LED begins to
blink and the amber K-band LED lights. A distinct audio alert is
also heard.
6. Power-On Indicator— A green LED under P lights to indicate
power is being supplied to the unit and the unit is turned on.
7. LED Signal Strength Meter—Four LEDs give an accurate visual
indication of the strength of radar or laser signals.
8. City Mode Indicator—A green LED under C lights to indicate
that you selected City Mode.
9. Auto Mute Indicator— A red LED under M lights to indicate that
you selected the Auto Mute feature.

Please make sure you give me a rating and I hope this helps,
