Question about Gateway GX7022E (RBGX7022E) PC Desktop
The built in sound card was not working on the right channel so I purchased a sound card, installed in a pci slot, then smelled melting plastic. Removed new sound card and now the computer will not power up at all. When you hit the power button nothing happens, however there is a green light on the motherboard that stays lit if the power supply is plugged in. Spoke with Gateway tech and they talked me into purchasing an new power supply. Installed new power supply with no change. Returned the power supply to Gateway with 15% restocking fee. Now I am still left with a pc not working. I assume it may be the motherboard itself that was damaged. Checked around the internet and see the board replacement is around $159 to $300. What are your thoughts on what it could be when you hit the power button and nothing happens?
*check for the powercord wheather it is good or not
*check the power outlet
*in bios see wheather hardware settings are correct
*open the system then see power switches are connected properly or wheather there is an any loose connection
*check the cpu fan is working properly or cpu is heating and see cpu is placed properly
*keyboard is connected properly
*check jumper settings are proper
