Based on my experience, the most probable cause of your problem is the RAM. Try Cleaning the RAM first by removing it from the slot, and rub the pins with a pencil eraser. As shown on the image below: my Gateway GT5654 desktop just quit in the middle - 263dfab.jpg

Then re-install it to the motherboard. If problem persist, you may need to replace your RAM.

Note: If you have two RAMs on your pc, might as well clean them both, and then test each RAM to find out if either one of them or both are busted.

I have a Gateway GT5654, and I can't tell which USB port is version 2.0. How can I tell? I have checked in the control panel, but I'm still stuck.

In this pc they all are. But to test that is easy: just plug a memory stick in one of them, if it's a 1.1 version a message will appear to warn you of the reduced speed.

Computer's heatsink on fritz - Gateway GT5654

Try cleaning the fan and the inside of the computer really well with compressed air. Dust can reak havoc inside of a computer and cause slow downs and crashes. It also causes more heat thus causing the fan to spin faster. I wouldn't worry about damaging the computer by removing the case, just remember to unplug it and touch the frame of the computer before anything else. This will discharge any static that CAN destroy the computer.

Had a power surge... a of my external harddrives work; however, can't get either computer to power on... Gateway GT5654 or my wife's Gateway GT5408.. on my wife's motherboard, there is a green light......

You can get a powr supply for this, but if the surge went passed that and smoked the motherboard then your going to need to replace that as well but a new poer supply should shore this up and you can get them from, you be glad you did!
