Look for a make and model number and version number on the motherboard, gateway use various manufactures motherboards. Then go to the makers website and look in the support section for the moherboard manual. Most motherboards have the connections marked on the board in very small print.
This suggestion is a real long shot but at least it something you can try. It sounds like you've alreadyruled out all the other stuff I was going to suggest. Try replacing the CMOS battery on the mother board. It's one of those large flat batteries about the size of a nickel.
I attempted to find this information for you and was unable to. Usually the type/model of the motherboard in a prebuilt PC is determined by printed information located by the CPU/Memory slots.
The downside to most prebuilt PCs you buy in the store, is these motherboards are generic motherboards. Gateway orders them from a company that makes them in bulk specifically for their needs. You would be better off trying to buy a new motherboard that matches the specifications of your current one. Here is the specification page for this Gateway PC. You would need to find a new motherboard that matched most, if not all of these features. However, worst case scenario, you may consider contacting Gateway to find out if they still have this board and how much it would cost to buy or have them replace it.
I got a gateway 505gr that I had to restore , but I lost the disc . So I used another disc. from my newer gateway and it worked . I cant promise you anything but I will see if I can burn you a copy to try if interested . if not I got a copy of window xp pro that I can send you that will work. you can email me at email@example.com .
assuming it's XP,right click my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down list for network adapters, if its there click the '+' sign, then right click on the network adapter and select uninstall.
Restart pc and the network card will be found and the driver automatically installed.
It should now be in network connections, if not reply back
not powering up does not mean the mother board is bad , the power supply going bad is more likely to be the problem . But your tower is considered to be a mini tower ive got the same one that I replaced the mother board on . dont mess up and get the wrong size board , it will not fit!
