    have the same problem. The light on the MB doesn't light with the original powersupply, but can get fans to spin briefly if cpu fan plugged into different fan pins. Tried another powersupply and light on MB lights, but the fans don't spin at all.

My gateway computer do not turn on.the fan try to start and stop.what should be happenning?


I think that the CPU fan isn't working as it should and the CPU is overheating quickly. If the CPU is heating too fast, the mainboard is automaticly shutting down the all PC to prevent damage. Your thermal paste might be gone. Isn't the computer giving any sounds or LED flashes ?

Does the fan on the power supply run? As you say the power on switch lights up and so does the motherboard, means that the power supply is working. Monitor gets power from the socket on the power supply. Try plugging it in the wall socket. Try to unplug the main power cord from power supply to the motherboard. The one that has a broad plug at the motherboard end. Replug it and they power on the PC.

Gateway yellow power button, nothing starts, no fan, nothing. opened up computer and see mobo led light is lit. newton ps has a test button. tried to test with various components plugged in and the test...


Power supply has several voltages. Just because the 5v power is active doesn't mean all the voltages are OK. You need to have the power supply tested for 12v and 3.3v. A quick test is to unplug all the wires from the power supply. There is a single green wire on the motherboard main plug. Connect (use a bent paper clip) that green switch wire and any black wire. Plug in the power supply and it should run (fan starts)

This is a link to troubleshooting power supplies for HPs. You still have a few steps to do to confirm but it appears your power supply is bad. I think they have you unplug the hard drives and take any cards but video out then unplug the power, wait for a while and then try again but if the light is still flashing the power supply is bad.

Flashing Green Light on Power BESTEC Power Supply


This is an easy fix so here you go nice and simple:

Problem: Your motherboard circuit has been cut.

Causes: Power disconnected during operation. Power outage or short in the surge protector.

Symptoms: Flashing green light on both motherboard and power supply. System will not power on.

Solution:

Step 1: Ensure that both the power supply and the motherboard lights are flashing green, not solid or off.
Step 2: While the power is on, disconnect the power supply from the motherboard. This connection is the largest of the connections and should be listed as the 'P1' or 'Primary' power connection.

Step 3: Wait until the green light on the motherboard stops flashing and check to ensure that the green light on the power supply is now solid. If it is not solid, disconnect the power to the power supply and wait until the light turns off completely. Then reconnect, it should be solid now.

Step 4: While the power is on, reconnect the P1 connection to the motherboard and you should now see that the light on the motherboard is solid.

Step 5: Power on your PC. The problem should not persist.

Warnings: If the power supply light remains flashing after you have restored power to it while it is disconnected from the motherboard, it may be a system failure in the power supply itself requiring replacement. Always be careful when working with an active or live power machine.

I hope this helped! Good luck!
