No display on screen and solid amber light on pcs' power button

I've replaced the motherboard on a gateway 700x desktop pentium 4 computer thinking it would resolve the issue of no display on the monitor and a solid amber light on the computer's power button. I've tried other video cards that I knew were working. I've swapped cables, power supplies, and memory cards and nothing works. I've tried everything but a new processor. Need motherboard for Gateway MX6448 Laptop.

It seems to be an issue with the power supply as you already tried replacing the motherboard
power supply will be less expensive do try to get it replaced first

do check that monitor iss fine
unplug the blue VGA cable which connects your monitor to the tower
if a 4 colored box moves all over the screen the monitor is fine
and if it doesn't
get the monitor either repaired or get it replaced.

I have a Gateway Intel Pentium 4 that won't turn on, the power button light turns on but nothing else. The power supply test switch shows that the power supply is good, and when the switch is pressed all...


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps

Massive noise, now unable to access computer at all. constant amber light, not moving to next stage, nothing on screen, several thermal events previous to it blocking my access


Noise is most likely CPU Fan racing. Fault is most likely motherboard failure (Solid Amber power LED is usually MB and thermal events could be associated) Replace the motherboard

My Dell 8200 Desktop just stopped working. It turns on but doesn't boot; nothing appears on the screen. I was told this is the motherboard. Does that sound right?


two things
  1. What does the power LED on the tower indicate? Solid Amber? Flashing Amber? Solid Green?
  2. On the back of the Tower are 4 diagnostic LEDs, what do they indicate? Normally they flash thru several sequences and stop ABCD all Green. If the stop in another pattern, post the pattern.

Sold amber light/fan running


Hi, Does the system makes any beeping sound? Does it go to the boot up stage, which can be seen on the screen. Provide the model number with your reply. Thanks, Mike

No display on screen and solid amber light on pcs' power button


Well hate to say it but that sort of problem results from a faulty motherboard or processor so if you say that you have changed the motherboard then you problem lies with you processor chip.

No display on screen and solid amber light on pcs' power button


To el_cid_132: Did you mean to say a solid amber light on the MONITOR's power button? If, after all you've tried with the computer, you still have no display, it's a pretty good bet your monitor is bad. Try another monitor to verify the computer function. Take a close look at the pins in the monitor's input cable plug. They are pretty easy to bend, and you may have one not making contact.

To Jaffe: It's a simple job to remove the hard drive from your laptop and hook up to another computer to copy anythig off that you want to keep. I don't know what a shop in your area would charge, but it should be reasonable. As for replacing the system board, a quick Google search for "MX6448 motherboard" turned up several sources, price range $250-$300. Usually it's not worth putting a new system board into a laptop unless it's a very high-end model. You can buy basic laptops now for around $400, and you'd be getting brand-new with a warranty.
