Question about Gateway GT5220 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Im going nowhere in this issue. I have this mobo fic k2bc51 and bought a GT240 and bought with it a 450w power supply. The fan of the card spins but monitor is black. The 6100 is disabled thru device manager but still it doesnt show. The bios is no help since there is no way to disable it. Cant find any jumper showing graphic and its been more than 30 days so i cant return it. Help!!!

    BIOS doesnt have an option for any video choice. Unless disabling channel0 or 1 will make a difference. Or disabling pci to dma access? I dont see any other choice. This are the pc specshttp://support.gateway.com/s/pc/R/100914... and mobo FIC K2BC51 Motherboard BIOS Update version: NAG12GWA

In your Bios make sure you have your default display set as you pci-e slot not your onboard graphics

    If I could see your bios that would help, but there has to be a setting to enable your video to your pci-e slot. I am sorry but that's the way it works.

    Options in the bios are:
    >Std CMOS features
    <>Advanced BIOS Features
    >>CPU FEature
    >>Boot prioriy
    >Advanced chipset features
    >>Frame buffer size = Auto
    >>CPU Spread Spectrum = Center
    >>PCIE Spread Spectrum = Disabled
    >>SATA Spread Spectrum = Enabled
    >>HT Spread Spectrum = Center

Dell inspiron 560 problems


chek your video card it my be going out

Mainboard: g31 m7 te - power: antec hcg750 - gpu: gtx560ti


No the mobo is compatible with the Power Supply, and GPU.
And vice-versa.

Mainboard fan???????
You mean the Processor (CPU) fan?

I'm guessing I guess, because computer case fans aren't on the motherboard/mainboard/mobo.
(MOtherBOard)

You're getting power to the mobo, but the question is how much?

1) IF ALL of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor can use from 51 to 125 Watts of power.
Just depends on what Processor it is.

http://206.108.48.60/app/en/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=363&tab=1

The mobo will support Intel Core2 Quad-Core processors. Depending on which one, you may be talking about Up To 105 Watts of power,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#Quad-Core_Desktop_processors

This is why LED's can light, and fans may spin, but the Processor isn't getting enough power, so the computer will not turn on. (Processor isn't turning on)

Why?

1) Just because that Power Supply is new, doesn't mean it is good.
Sometimes you get a bad one. Test the three main voltages coming out, with a multimeter set to DC Voltage.

Need guidance post back in a Comment.
(An economical multimeter can be purchased, for as little as $8 to $12. I have seen cheaper. Available in a multitude of stores. An auto parts store is but one example )

2) You don't have the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable plugged in.
Goes to the white square 4-socket hole connector, to the left top corner of the Processor socket.
(Motherboard installed in computer case)

3) REQUIRES -> TWO 6-pin PCI-Express power cables, for the Nvidia GTX560Ti graphics card.

The Antec HCG750 PSU has 4 of them, so no problem there, IF you have two of them plugged into the graphics card.

Both connectors of the 20 + 4-pin ATX main power cable's connector, need to be used. Biostar mobo requires a 24-pin ATX main power cable.

Post back in a Comment as to power cables plugged in, and DC Voltage test on PSU.

Power button does not light, fans run but computer does not send signal to monitor. Replaced power supply, no change. Put in new graphics card, still does not generate video that would allow me to change...


no HP PC stated just a MOBO. must we guess?
no the power button is just 2 wires, a digital line and ground
it must be plugged in to the correct MOBO jack.
in fact i can turn it on with a simple jumper wire, there.
i guess you found the board, in garage sale, just tossed in a box?
if the local vga jack and added in VGA card both fail then its a mobo issue.

im googling for you.
lets see what POPS
Compaq Brio ATX PGA370 New D7580-60003 *
This motherboard is only compatible with Celeron 400 CPUs
With integrated SiS Super AGP graphics controller?
takes 1 good RAM stick.
if the fan fails to stay on, that means the PSU sees errors.
mostly sees shorts on MOBO(remove things to find it)
that one old mobo is rare, now.
is the coin cell at 3vdc, or below 2.9v, if yes, needs new one.
HP has zero data (information) on this old mobo or the COMPAQ BRIO anything.

I have an Antec full tower with a 350W power supply it seems somewhat old...i hooked everything up inside and tried to turn it on but it would not turn on any suggestions?


First, is there power from the power supply? Is the power supply turned on in the back? If there is powere to the Mobo, then the mobo is likely the problem. The cpu fan fan should spin if there is ower to the board.

Dead Mobo?


Do you have both power connectors from the PSU hooked up?

You need both the large one near the ram, and the smaller square 4-pin one near the printer port

Optiplex GX260 won't boot


I had the same issue and accidentally discovered a temporary solution. Unplug the power from the back of the machine, open the case and unplug the ATX power connection from the motherboard. With the ATX cable unplugged, plug the power cord back in. When you try to turn the computer back on the power light should turn orange and fans should be spinning, with it powered on plug the ATX connector back in. That should turn the computer off. Turn it back on and it should boot fine. You can even shutdown and restart, but when the power is unplugged you will have to go thru the same process to get it back up. This sounds crazy but it worked on mine. Good Luck!
