Question about Gateway 830GM PC Desktop

1 Answer

Gateway 830GM power

I always had problems with my machine every now and again. It would just freeze up and the light would stay on solid. I couldn't hit control alt delete or anything. Seemed like hardware because I never had/found any viruses. Had to always shut off manually.

Recently it just won't turn on and power light isn't on in back of computer even when cord is plugged in. I popped it open and went through each cord coming from power supply and would try and get power light on back of computer to come on. It came on for everything except when I plugged back in cord going to mother board (master). Is this a mother board problem or power supply?

Could be power supply, unplug every thing from the board, remove all drives, cards everything but the mem. turn it on, if you get some beeps, add your Hard drive. The power supply may not have the guts it take to run all the peripherals it used to, this test will tell you if its the board or power supply.

No sound on speakers except on itunes


I cannot find drivers on the Gateway Support site, which usually means the machine is no longer supported, which also usually means the Operating System is no longer supported. If this machine is running XP, or earlier, beware. It is no longer supported, and hackers will be looking for these machines to infect. I recommend you get a newer machine, or don't try to get on the Internet with this one.

I have an 830GM and am suspicious of a hard drive crash or a motherboard failure and was wondering how to diagnose?


try replacing or swapping the hard drive with another machine and see if it happens again and on which machine if both machine's crash both MB and HD could be bad, If your machine with different HD works fine then it most likely was the HD If not then the MB might be at fault

Gateway 830gm wont turn on


1 of 2, either there is a ON/OFF button on the back and it is turned off, or 2) you might had a surge and it hit the system, especially if it is connected to a phone jack (for dial up or DSL).
