Question about Gateway /ton 160W Power Supply (6500582) Power Supply
Unplug everything from the motherboard, including the hdd, ram, and any PCI cards. Connect only the main power for the board and power up the system.
More than likely it will boot 'naked'
now begin the tedious process of troubleshooting by turning off the system, replacing a SINGLE component (if more than 1 stick of ram you may insert them together, but may need to remove one to isolate the culprit if they are the reason for the short)
once the system fails to boot you can replace everything except that component and you can go about your marry way of purchasing a replacement.
If the system failed to boot 'naked' then respond with your computer model, and any model numbers on the motherboard, including any product stamps
GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!!!!!
