Question about Gateway (4000531) Motherboard
If you are getting no beeps then this would usually indicate the motherboard is fried. If you have a test video card that you can put into the machine I would try that and seeing if you get a signal then. If you still don't get anything and you want to look at getting it fixed I would take it someplace to have at least a diagnostic run on it. Some places will do a test of the video card for you at no cost.

Replace the CPU with another, compatible, AMD chip.

I experienced a similar problem. I have a pci diagnostic card that I used to check the motherboard for post codes. It stopped at FF. This indicates it is the CPU. I do not have an AMD Athlon XP X2 to swap with but even so, the motherboard could be bad as well.
