SOURCE: Need Diagram for the pwr,reset,pwr led,hdd led speaker connections on the motherboard. Model p5s 800-vm.

Hi there.
On the motherboard look for the front panel, it should be marked PWR and coloured green, also the plug that connects to it should be marked PWR_SW.
Have a look at these pictures for an idea >>>>>>

SOURCE: replaced Gateway 105552 Foxconn C51GU01 Motherboard with another

Was this also the original problem pedro1952?

Computer doesn't start up?

Removed Ram Memory, and no BIOS Beep Code/s.
Shouldn't have been. Ram Memory needs to be in there.

Primer:
You press the Power On button. This in turn presses against a Power On switch, located within the plastic Power On button.

When the Power Supply is plugged into power, there is a 5 Volt Standby power, present in the Power Supply.

Pressing the Power On switch closes a circuit, that directs the 5 Volt Standby power to the Power Supply.

This excites the Power Supply, and turns the Power Supply on. (No don't go there, lol)
The Power Supply directs power to the motherboard.

The first chip to receive power is the BIOS chip.
(Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit )

The BIOS program is 'burned' into the BIOS chip.

BIOS looks to see what devices are installed, DOES a Ram Memory count, TURNS the Processor on, and hands the computer over to the Operating System.
(Windows XP is one example of an O/S)

Unless you KNOW the motherboard is bad, I suggest you check the voltage power rails of the Power Supply, for the correct voltages.

[Unless you KNOW the motherboard is bad. One case in point, is that you have observed bad Electrolytic Capacitors on the motherboard. If this is true, then yes, it's obvious the motherboard is bad.

To expound:

A) http://www.capacitorlab.com/visible-failures/index.htm ]

Unless you know for a fact that the motherboard is bad, I suggest your Power Supply is bad. Weak Voltage power rail.
Not enough power to turn the Processor on.

Your Power Supply is rated in Wattage.
(Voltage times Amperage = Wattage)

If this is in reference to a Gateway GT5058, it comes with a 300 Watt power supply.

Gateway Support > GT5058 desktop computer > Support Documents,

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1008847/1008847nv.shtml

(In the main menu shown, left-click on Components.
Scroll down to the heading - Power Supplies)

1) ALL the LED lights use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts

3) A typical Processor uses 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is, as to how much Wattage it will use, at maximum operating capacity.

The Gateway GT5058 comes with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+,
processor.
(In the main menu left-click on - Specifications)

Uses a Socket 939 processor socket.
(Components >Motherboards > Specifications > CPU Support)

The AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ may use up to 89 Watts. (That uses a Socket 939 processor socket)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_amd_athlon_64_processors#Athlon_64_X2

Power for LED lights, plus perhaps spin fans a few times, but isn't enough to turn the Processor on.

This is why you can connect the optical drives, with the 24-pin ATX main power cable unconnected, and they have enough power to open and close, and the LED lights, light.

You plug the 24-pin ATX main power cable back in, and you are providing power for the Processor.

There isn't enough power for the Processor, and especially not enough for the optical drives, AND the Processor at the same time.

The Processor is 'stealing' all of the power. Not enough power to open and close the optical drive tray's, or even light the LED lights.

No Processor operating, there isn't anything to search for the boot sector on the Harddrive.

The harddrive may not have enough power either, to spin the Platters inside.

http://computer.howstuffworks.com/hard-disk.htm


Have a cheap multimeter? Just need an economical one for this test. ($5 to $10)
You will be testing the 12 Volt power rail.
11 to 13 Volts indicates a good Power Supply
Less than 11 Volts indicates replace the Power Supply.

If not, is there a KNOWN to be Good, Compatible power supply, in an unused computer available?

KNOWN to be good.
Not one out of an old computer, that you have no idea if it's any good.

Compatible:
Has to have the correct power cables, and the correct amount of power cables.

Why won't my computer boot up?


does not sound easy . Try holding power button in for 30 seconds and then try normal power up. Is the AC adapter plugged into laptop it may have a flat battery. If the Ac to DC adapter is failing to charge the battery this could cause a flat laptop battery and cause the symptoms you are experiencing.

If its a flat screen monitor ?

eMachines flat-screen monitors offer high quality at low cost. eMachines flat-screen monitors are compatible with most brands of PCs. Issues with eMachines flat-screen monitors can arise from faulty power sources, cable problems and incompatible settings. These issues can be resolved by testing step-by-step each possible cause.

Plug the computer's power cable firmly into a working AC outlet. Press the computer's power button.

Check the LEDs on the front of the computer case to confirm that the computer receives power. Plug the eMachines monitor's power cable into a working AC outlet. Press the monitor's power button. Check the LEDs on the front bezel or power button of the eMachines monitor to confirm that the monitor receives power. Orange or blinking LEDs indicate low power or no signal. Green LEDs denote a working connection.. Perform a monitor self-test. Switch off the monitor. Unplug the video cable from the monitor. Press the eMachines monitor's power button. An eMachines logo, Windows logo or "no signal" message indicates that the monitor is working properly. Plug the eMachines monitor's video cable into the video port on the computer. Attach the monitor's included DVI-to-VGA adapter to the monitor's VGA cable if your computer has a DVI port (15 or 25 pin-slots with 1 side slot) in place of a VGA port (15 pin-slots, no side slot). Press the eMachines monitor's input button to change the monitor's setting to match the computer port used. Set your monitor to DVI if connected to your computer's DVI port. Set your monitor to VGA if connected to your computer's VGA port. Connect the eMachines monitor to a known working computer with a known working video cable if the problem persists. Contact Gateway, eMachines manufacturer, if the monitor issue is not resolved. Hope this helps.

Sounds like a severe hardware problem concerning your laptop's hard drive. I suggest you contact Gateway customer service to check on your warranty - your laptop is, simply put, broken. The best approach to repairing it is not to fix it yourself in this case.

No video after replacing chip fan


Try a different video-card -- a "no-spin" fan and "no-video" implies a dead video-card (or at least a video-card that is not "seated' properly).

Check that the PC-speaker leads are connected to the motherboard, so that you could hear any "beep" codes. There should be one "beep" to indicate 'OK', or multiple "beeps" (bad RAM, no video-card detected).

No video \green led near keyboard, hdd drive light indicator and wireless lights turn on. green power indicator on ad adapter, tried two different batteries. cpu fan not spinning...this thing will boot...


You can try doing these:

Clearing the CMOS, i.e. Unplug power cord and take out battery, then put them back in.

Cross check the components such as heatsink/fan, video card, and processor. It is never good to have a heatsink with the fan not spinning.

Check to see if the heatsink is cold, warm or hot. It shouldn't be cold OR hot.
