Question about Computers & Internet
Gateway 3200XL system does not power on even thou the power supply unit has been replaced; no fans power on, i.e. cpu, power supply unit, nor case fan;
Any suggestion would be appreciated.
I dont know due to what reason the chat got disconnected I apologize for the inconvenience but i would like you to check few things on your system, that the smps (power supply which you have changed is that a good one just to confirm that check the power switch which must be at the back where you connect the power cable there would be a 110 and 220 volt sliding switch too, make sure you have the correct rating of voltage selector. If its set to 220 then you need to slide it to 110v but be careful and be cautious while you do that and make sure that you unplug the power cable from the wall socket.
All the best

Start with the obvious.
Check the power at the wall to make sure it is on.
Check the back of the power supply to make sure the switch is on
Check the motherboard and make sure you didn't accidently knock the power switch wire off the jumpers.
Another thing to consider, what was the reason the power supply was replaced in the first place. If it was replaced dur to nothing happening a it is now, then it could very well be the board is not working, not the power supply.
Post back after you check those =)
