Ram,

It sounds like the problem is either your power supply OR the motherboard. A power supply swap doesn't take long or cost much.
On the other hand, replacing a motherboard takes 30 minutes or longer and can cost upwards of $100!

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!

Gateway GM 5072 won't turn on, it just flicker.


One of two things a clogged up CPU fan and block may be the contributor over heated and possibly fried the board. The other issue may be a bad power supply unit, replace the unit and reboot. John

Hi jdr_dlr519!
Pardon me.... but did your friend connected the monitor cable correctly on the system unit? Cleaning the fan will not break your computer... however, if he forgot to disconnect the power cables before opening the unit, it may do a damage.

sounds like your system is booting up and running due to the hold power shutdown procedure. you might try replacing the video card or adding one if your video is integrated.

Check the condensators. If there are not any blown condensators or leakage, keep the video card (or at least the one on board if any) and remove all the other cards, also the memory. Check the CPU with a known good motherboard. If the CPU is ok begin by adding the memory, one bar at a time (you may alternate the slot also). If the computer do not start the motherboard is defective . If the computer starts but no sound is heard motherboard could be defective. Try to install a previously checked memory. If you do not get any signal the board is dead. If you get video signal, add one card at a time until you identify the bad component.

The 831 only supports 2 gigs of ram any more and it wont start. You can probably fit a 9800 in it but would be a very tight fit.

Make sure that there is not a power switch on the back of your computer. Alot of computers have a power switch on back of the power supply as a master shutoff.
