Question about Gateway GT5662 Desktop PC
Bad Power On switch. (Located inside the plastic Power On button), or Bad Power Supply. Weak voltage power rail.
Bypass the Power On switch to see if the switch is the problem, or the Power Supply.
To perform this procedure you will be using a jumper wire to touch the Soft Power On wire's terminal contact, (PS_ON. Green wire), to ANY Ground wire's terminal contact, (Black), in your 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector. Brief contact, no more than 2 seconds.
Main power cable remains plugged in. The jumper wire can be a paper clip straightened out, then bent into a U-shape. The bend of the U is wrapped with electrical tape.
The legs of the U go down into the socket holes of the Green wire, and ANY Black wire. (ALL Black wires going down in that connector are Ground wires)
You have to make sure the jumper wire touches a metal terminal contact, that is down at the bottom of the wire.
The jumper wire is slid down next to the wire, in the socket hole.
The voltage is 5 Volts DC.
Two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.
