Question about Gateway GT4016 Desktop PC
Gateway GT4016 not booting up. Fan works, but no beeps even when I have disconnected the hard drive. I tried removing and reinstalling the memory, reset the bios by changing the dip switch setting but nothing changed. Is there a LED light on the motherboard so we know the motherboard is working?

even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem computer needs all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly:
a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working
also check your computer ram and cmos battery to make sure they are securely seated and the battery has plenty of charge Cmos battery on some motherboards are soldered in
