To replace a standard ATX powersupply;

remove left hand side cover (ensure power is disconnected first);
disconnect the 20.24 pin primary power plug (big wide white one plugs directly onto the mainboard, also disconnect the 4 pin AUX power plug, looks just like the other one but is a smaller square shaped plug (older P3 boards will not have this)

disconnect all 4 pin power plugs from hard drives/cd drives and aftermarket fans (if any are installed), disconnect SATA power plugs from any SATA devices installed (flat black plug, 4 wires)

disconnect floppy drive power plug (if app) small while 4 pin power plug, once all of these are disconnected, looking at the rear of the computer there will be 4 screws holding the power supply in place, one screw will be more to the centre slightly to ensure you do not put it in upside down, once you remove those screws the power supply will slide right out.. simply re-do these steps in revers for instaling the new power supply

Gateway GT5468 will not boot power light fan runs thats all


The power-supply must output several different voltages.
If it is partially broken, then only the power-lamp and the fan(s) will spin. Replace the power-supply

My computer died and won't turn back on.... when i press the power button i get the power led light for a split second then it goes off... nothing else turns on such as the fan or hard drive... it will not


This sounds like a power supply failure inside of your desktop.
If you're good with a screwdriver, you can order a replacement power supply from Gateway and replace it yourself or you can take the desktop in for service.
On the Gateway web site support page, it provides you with all of the equipment installed within your desktop including the part numbers of the power supplies used.
The power supplies listed are:

I have a Gateway 503gr desktop. When I press the on button, the computer shutters but does not turn on.


I suggest the power supply is bad. Your Gateway 503GR uses an ATX style power supply. The style found in about 90 percent of desktop computers.
http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/3724/4172nv.shtml
(Click on Components. Then click on Power Supply in the list)
http://support.gateway.com/s/POWER/102015/102015nv.shtml

Uses a 300 watt power supply. I suggest Tigerdirect or Newegg, for a replacement. If your computer is dirty inside, I also suggest cleaning it out.
Use a can of compressed air for computers, WITH the computer unplugged from the surge protector.

No power showing


the power system is my first consideration, since the attempt of using battery and the adapter and it doesno longer come on, i suggest you have the power system checked but first insert the battery carefully and check if it comes on or not and carefully plug the adapter and watch if the adapter led on the adapter comes on or not,if comes on the power system of the laptop is the case and if does not come on change the adapter and try again. should it not work out the power system of the laptop is defective.
