I have a Gateway Desktop computer, and I have had it for a couple years, and it just wouldn't turn on. So I need to know if that means that computer is dead?


Check for any lights. Usually a computer would have a flea light on the motherboard as soon as you plug it in. If it doesn't have a flea light, start with the power supply. Swap the power cord of the monitor with the power supply of your desktop. If it still would not show power, try replacing the power supply. Worse case, you may need to replace the motherboard of your computer which would cost a lot.

Try this first.
Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet for about ten minutes then plug it back in and see if your PC powers up.
If still no power, the power supply is shot and will need to be replaced, it costs about $40 for the part.
I hope this helped.
Good luck and have a pleasent day.

Thank you for using FixYa

I would try shutting down the computer in the normal way, and turning off the monitor.
Boot up and turn the monitor back on.
If it still doesn't work, then I would check the cables and power plugs and wall plugs.
Check the mouse and keyboard cable and any other cables plugged into the computer.
The next step requires a seperate monitor or laptop.
Try unplugging the monitor and pluging in another monitor. Most laptops have a common
VGA adaptor jack or even an Svideo jack.
If the other monitor does not work, Then take to a qualified technician for repair.
It could be your power supply in the computer or video controller.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

Hello,

This model has been having problems with the motherboard that can cause that exact problem, Not powering up, Flashing yellow light or locking up right after booting up. The first thing to check is parts called capacitors on the motherboard. We have an article posted on our web site at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/dell-optiplex-745-repair/ that has detailed pictures and information about this issue. The pictures are of the tower case Optilpex 745 but the board is the same for your unit. Check it out and see if your board has this issue. If you can solder then you should be able to fix it yourself for less than $15.00 If your board does not have the bad capacitors then the blinking yellow light is a failure in the power supply unit.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Your computer power button may not be working, or the CPU may be bad and it can also be the motherboard is faulty.You need a new case or fix the power button or try another CPU in the computer or replace the motherboard.

Hp pavillion m7640n has no power


It could be a power supply, but it could be a number of other hardware components too. A new power supply is less than $50, you can get them at Best Buy or Newegg.com. Any computer place can install it for you. I suggest you take it somewhere to make sure the power supply is the problem.

Computer wont start up. Blinking green light in the back of tower


I've had that happen twice to my Vaio desktop and there was a very easy fix. I'm not a techie, but I found a recommended solution online when this first happened six months ago. I couldn't find the solution again, but I fortunately remembered the steps.

Remove the side pane to access your motherboard cables, etc. Locate the connector on your motherboard that contains the wires going from your power supply to your motherboard. It will be a large, rectangular connector with a lot of individual wires It is not a ribbon cable but should be located next to a ribbon cable connector andnext to a geen blnking light on your motherboard (when the power supply is plugged into the wall). Note: This green blinking light is in addition to the green blinking light on the back of the PC.

This next step is important: You have to disconnect the connector noted above from the motherboard WHILE the power suply is plugged into the wall. Wait a few seconds and plug it back in. The blinking reen light on the motherboard should now be a solid green light. The PC should now power up.

It worked twice for me; I hope it works for you.
