Question about Gateway (ATX-300-12EB3) (ATX30012EB3) 300-Watt Power Supply

1 Answer

When my Gateway 300S is powering up, it recycles.

When my Gateway 300S is powering up, it suddenly stops and recycles the power up just as it is about to load Windows (blue Windows banner screen)--and recycles the power start up over and over. If I disconnect power to the CD and DVD drives, it goes a bit further before recycling (you can hear the Windows start theme) before it again starts to recycle from scratch. Any ideas--does this sound like a power supply issue? TAG

If you repeatedly hit F8 key when the computer starts to boot it will open the boot menu screen. There should be an option to "halt computer on all errors". This should bring up the blue screen of death. It should give you something like
STOP: 0X0000007E, the a whole bunch of other numbers. after that it may display a file name. You can search the internet for STOP: 0X0000007E and the file named mentioned. You may be able to find a solution by doing this. It is usually caused by a bad driver or executing a bad command on Windows start up. You can boot the computer in safe mode from the boot menu and maybe repair the problem but it's a tough one to find. I'm trying to repair a similar Gateway computer. It doesn't list a file name and I'm pretty sure that it's a video driver or the onboard video card. The problem is Gateway is no longer in business and it's hard to find updated drivers I"m going to try to backup all the files on the drive and re-install windows and try to repair the drivers with more updated ones. The gateways are hard because they don't have slots in the motherboard to install anything but an old PCI video card. It may be time to think about a new computer soon.

Power went off at home and when the power came back on my gateway 300S desktop pc would not power back on. Any suggestion


Yes, I don't have a simple "fix it" solution. But I'd replace the battery first. If you have a spare, replace it, if not wait and call your pc brand (Dell, HP etc.) and get the BEST suggestion/solution. Also it could be possible that the surge from the power outage could have fried the motherboard, however it's rare.
Hope this helps. Good luck!
