Question about Gateway LX6200-01 PC Desktop

1 Answer

A Gateway motherboard

I bought a Gateway LX6200 in Oct 08. In Dec 08 one morning I went to turn on the PC and all that happened was the power button just flashed on & on. Turned out it was a part in the motherboard. I sent it off to Gateway and after 2 months they gave me a new PC, same model. Now In July the power button is starting to flash off & on but so far still works. I want to replace the motherboard if it goes out again. My question is, what good AMD motherboard's are out there to replace the Gateway motherboard?

It's a tough problem to overcome. Gateway/Dell etc have support that you can contact or send it parts for a replacement. The downside is these parts are typically only replaceable through them. I had a Dell machine way back and wanted to purchase new RAM and a video card. They wanted to charge my an obscene amount for the new memory and the model I had would not support a newer video card. I ended up breaking away and venturing out on my own. I purchased a custom-built (by me) rig and haven't had any problems so far.
The upside to running with the "premades" is that they have good support and return policies, but doing stuff on your own (like replacing a motherboard) would probably violate the user agreement (meaning they won't warranty any work) and you'd be stuck.
Venturing out on your own is tough if you're not familiar with PCs. Vendors are usually pretty good about their return policies.

In your case, if you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself, stick with Gateway. I would suggest then trying to see if you can "upgrade" your model PC to another and see if you have better luck.

Wondering if there is an upgrade for the motherboard in a gateway lx6200-01

upgrade in what sense you can always improve the cpu and memory and some board level components, update firmware, and even fool around with bus speeds, but motherboards have a tendency to be latent and static.

A Gateway motherboard (again)

The LX6200-01 has AMD's 2.2GHz Phenom X4 9500. Any motherboard that can support the Phenom X4 chipset should do.
Biostar TA790GXB is one in particular.

Gateway 500xl pc will not turn on power button is lit up yellow

A LOT of Gateway computers will go into this catatonic state because of a dead battery. The battery is on the motherboard -- it looks like a metal disk about 1" in diamter. Check it or replace it. This applies to laptops too (not the actual laptop battery, the CMOS battery -- a laptop will have one on the motherboard too)

Hope this helps

Gateway MT6451 Does not turn on

Probably the mainboard or flaky power supply.

I'd start by replacing the power supply. Buy one you can use in a new machine, though... or "borrow" one from another machine.
