    It is the removal of the casing that is the tricky part on this computer. It is not a standard desktop. The gateway 600xl is more of an all in one where the power supply is in the spine of the monitor stand.

    I have a gateway media center 620xl. My problem is it keeps freezing, and cannot get device drives install.

    Keep saying drivers are corrupt of missing. These devices, modem etc, drivers are from the gateway wed site. This problem is with both windows xp & vista os

    I have changed the hard drive, the memory & I have upgraded the bios. Still getting the same problem.

    Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

    email address aliesighn@hotmail.com

    Thanks

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

I suppose you are saying that the computer is powering up, however, you cannot see the video. In that case you have a bad graphic chip or video card. The gateway media centers came with built-in graphic chips. Thus,your system is dead.

You need to replace the system board.

Power cuts off or does not start


Check the power cord if it is connected correctly, if does then probably there is problem with the power supply or in the motherboard. Try also replacing the power cords of the power supply.

Gateway 610 Media Center


I would then suspect the monitor.
Sounds like the video card is working.
Try another monitor to see for sure.

How do I change the video card in my 610XL PC?


After the side of the case is opened and the computer unpluged and the video to the monitor unplugged, if it has a card already installed , remove the screw holding the card down then pull the old card straight up out of the card slot. Align the new card that you purchased , pushing it straight down into the slot. Install the hold down screw. Reinstall the side . Install the software after hooking  the computer and monitor up.   If you don;t jknow which type of card ,down load a manual and maybe even further instructions from the weblink I provided.

Below it the Gateway support center for your model. All you have to do is to put in your 22 digit serial number.

Gateway Power Supply


It's not likley the power usage that did in the power supply unless you split the feeds numerous times. The switch should be straightforward, unplug all the feeds paying attention to what you unplug and only unplug what comes from the power supply. It should be a simple matter then to unscrew the supply from the case, remove the old and reverse the operation.
