Question about Intel D865GBF Motherboard
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.
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.

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.

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.
