what hardware have you replaced? do you hear a beeping sound? try removing everything (HDD, DVD/CD/FLOPPY/)except the proc,video card and mem on the motherboard and try to boot. check if it will give you bios. if it still the same, do an isolation test. the main reason why its not responding is your computer doesnt complete POST. POST is one of the process the computer do to test all the hardware that is connected on the motherboard, if one fails and POST doesnt complete, you wont see the BIOS startup screen. Theres a lot of possible fault on this concern. since theres a lot of things connected on the motherboard

Gateway 704GE push power button fans turn on and thats it...any ideas?

Simple test: disconnect and remove everything that is attached to the motherboard except the monitor and try to start it : if you don't get a warning from the BIOS then either the motherboard or the processor has failed. To find out which replace the processor and try again.

I've just bought this old IBM Thinkcentre P4 Desktop pc from a seller who added 2 x 512 DDR Ram, an ASUS DVD +-R, and an Audigy 2 sound card. Loaded it with a RC Win 7 32 bit OS and it set up fairly...

I cant believe that the bios doesnt start up!?
try mashing F9 or F12 or DEL as soon as youve started it up to see. If the bios aint starting up, its probably a big hardware problem (like you've broken the motherboard or similar)
You sure you've the bios isn't working? Does it POST at all? other wise maybe its just a faulty hdd, try putting the HDD into another computer, wiping it completely and booting.
Most computers wont boot at all if there CPU isn't properly (or isnt) in same for the CPU fan and video adapters. Try reseating everything and see what happens.
Does it beep at all? maybe its a problem with the RAM, have a look at the model numbers of everything and check the the specs match up with whatever motherboard it uses.

Sound troubleshooting

If you can hear sound in all other video files except this specific one then it could be the problem of the downloaded video file.

I updated BIOs and now every thing is gone.

Okay, sounds like your BIOS upgrade went south. First off, re-install the original BIOS. Usually you back up the original before upgrading. Either that, or d/l the original BIOS from Once you've got the BIOS working, try starting the system. I'll need to know more to help you from there.

All I see is a black screen when I start my computer. No Bios, no Windows, nothing! Probable cause ? Thank you.

try to disconnect everything except mouse,keyboard and monitor, turn off computer, unplug power cable and turn it on again..if it wont turn on or still does the same,you need to reseat your memory modules..try using a different monitor as well or reseat monitor cable

No power except fan

It's your CPU. It sounds like you didn't apply the thermal liquid between your CPU and fan.

No Beep, No LED Read-out just - -

Sounds like you have pretty much covered about everything. Are you saying that the system works OK, except when you try to get to BIOS, or is it not working at all?

If you are just having trouble getting into BIOS, there is the possibility that something is wrong with the F key that you use to access BIOS. Might try a different keyboard if this is the case.

I know that this is kind of a stretch, but haven't been able to think of anything else, yet.
