lets start real troubleshooting.
Take the computer to a bench, remove all the cables from the motherboard, only keep connected the needed devices such as Cpu, ram and powersupply.
Disconnect all hard drives etc.
Connect the computer to display and plug in the power, turn it on, noting on the screen?
Power off, remove all the ram from the computer, plug it back in, now you should be getting beeps, let it beep for a moment, unplug, Reconnect 1 ram module, plug in and power on.
Anything on the screen yet?

Sounds like your video card needs to be replaced. If your Gateway is still under warranty you can get a replacement at no charge. If its not under warranty you can purchase one at a computer shop in your area. You may want to contact Gateway to see if your system is under warranty
