What specifications do I need when identifying a suitable replacement for my power supply? Its in a Gateway 830 GM desktop computer


The load is one thing, like how many watts does it supply. You'll want that or higher in the new one. Just as important though is what is the new power supply compatible with. Some name brand machines made theirs with unique dimensions so that only theirs would fit in the case... If you have a standard size case, then you're probably good to go. Look at the plug for it, there are two bundles of cables in some, and the plug type. If possible, checkout the tech specs on the model on the Gateway website and that should give you the basic info you need for searching on a replacement.

Gateway 500s power box when hitting test button powers both fans, but no power to hardrive, dvd, or monitor. I have replaced power supply, motherboard, and harddrive, I have nothing, but green power button...


Does the fan on the power supply run? As you say the power on switch lights up and so does the motherboard, means that the power supply is working. Monitor gets power from the socket on the power supply. Try plugging it in the wall socket. Try to unplug the main power cord from power supply to the motherboard. The one that has a broad plug at the motherboard end. Replug it and they power on the PC.

My gateway desktop PRB 510S, if I turn it off and unplug it or electricity goes off, the computer wont start back again. Wont do anything. No lights no fan, nothing. Then 5 to 10 minutes after I turn it on...


Try connecting a different power supply to it. If the same situation repeats, then it's an internal (motherboard) problem. If the problems go away, then the power supply needs to be replaced.

6 years... I'm surprised the PSU even lasted that long! The power supply is the cheapest part of the PC and usually one of the first parts to fail. Don't worry, a replacement power supply is not too expensive. Good luck!

When my Gateway 300S is powering up, it recycles.


If you repeatedly hit F8 key when the computer starts to boot it will open the boot menu screen. There should be an option to "halt computer on all errors". This should bring up the blue screen of death. It should give you something like
STOP: 0X0000007E, the a whole bunch of other numbers. after that it may display a file name. You can search the internet for STOP: 0X0000007E and the file named mentioned. You may be able to find a solution by doing this. It is usually caused by a bad driver or executing a bad command on Windows start up. You can boot the computer in safe mode from the boot menu and maybe repair the problem but it's a tough one to find. I'm trying to repair a similar Gateway computer. It doesn't list a file name and I'm pretty sure that it's a video driver or the onboard video card. The problem is Gateway is no longer in business and it's hard to find updated drivers I"m going to try to backup all the files on the drive and re-install windows and try to repair the drivers with more updated ones. The gateways are hard because they don't have slots in the motherboard to install anything but an old PCI video card. It may be time to think about a new computer soon.

Gateway 3310s desk top computer power supply


Hello,

You can replace the pc with the same watt power supply or upgrade to around 420W and still be able to run your system within thermal threshold. The power supply should be a 20-pin ATX power supply.

Good Luck

Power supply for gateway


This power supply has an odd form factor so just "any" power supply won't work.
