Question about Gateway GM5072 Desktop PC
My gm5072 gateway isnt booting . The monitor goes to power save mode. There is power on network card. The front of PC shows no power and there is no power on keyboard. The hard-drive light lights and flickers for a short time. The fans inside are on. I tried a new power supply but the same thing happens.
I do believe the mainboard is the issue. call someone who can get the mainboard working again with reflow process, its less costl;y than replacing the entire motherboard. Also, download www.malwarebytes.com , run the program. As well, go to http://www.superantispyware.com/ tehse are fee software for adware and virus attacks. these two programs will get rid of all adware and spyware/virus attacks.

Base on what you are saying, and the fact that you've already tried another Power Supply... the system is getting power. You are indicating that with the notation of the NIC card showing a light(NICs will indicate a connection as long as a cable is plugged in and there is power to the card) other lights flashin, and the fans running, but nothing else...You have a dead motherboard. I've experienced this issue. If the board was working correctly you should have video, and at least see the BIOS and possibly errors. If the machine was having any issues with the components, other than the board, you would hear system beeps(codes) telling you something is wrong. Or if it was simply a video card issue, then you should hear ar least one short system beep telling you that the POST(Power On Self Test) completed properly.

Try going to gateway(they went bankrupt you know), and try installing all drivers again,you could have a very serious (bot) virus, go to "trend micro" and do a "free scan", stay away from "stopsign", that's all I can say on that issue, also go to filehippo.com, and install update scan, not like driver dective, which is a rip, let me know if this helps,god bless

Sounds like a Malware attack, try to boot into "safe mode" once there use control panel to go to your system devices. You want to delete your current video adapter and then reboot your system. Windows will reload your video drivers as long as they are not ATI, SIS or another non-standard manufacturer. Make sure your anit-virus/malware programs are up to date. Hopefully this will cure your problem.
