Question about Computers & Internet
Is there a fuse or circuit breaker for the power button on a gateway w350i? It won't turn on.
Usually it is the Power Supply or The components of the PC. You will have to troubleshoot. To find the exact culprit.
You will have to troubleshoot and find out where the fault is. Here is what I do….. First, check the Power is ON, cable is OK and IN PC, Then open PC up, and remove all power connections from everything EXCEPT the Motherboard Connector.(s) (Remember where they go, draw a diagram etc) Power the computer up, and does it switch on? NO, Then, remove the RAM, does it Boot up? YES Faulty RAM, replace. If it still does NOT then your Power Supply Unit is probably Faulty.(But it may be the motherboard) either way we need to test more with a known good power supply. With know good PSU, plug this one into the Motherboard Connection(s). Does it work, YES. Problem Solved. OK back to Frst: Because it DID go the PSU WAS OK, The MB was OK & the RAM was OK, Now then we plug in each of the other Items, DVD Hard Drive, etc, etc. One-at-a-time, until we find the one that stops the PSU. (It has protection and will "Shutdown in event of a fault") The one that stops the PSU is your culprit, replace whatever it is.
