My fan starts but the light doesnt turn on and the monitor doesnt display anything

A loose contact on the SATA bus ports (a red colour cable connecting Hard disk and motheboard) is the most commom reason. It becomes hard and shrinks after a period of time causing poor data flow.... Remove Power from PC gently push the SATA cable, Plug it back and try to start PC
OR consult hardware engineer

Blue power light does not come on when i turn the comp on

there is either a motherboard/cpu issue (worst case), or a power supply issue (best case, cheap and easy fix)...

without being there looking at it i can't really tell you more. if you happen to have a spare ATX power supply, open the machine and plug it in to the system instead of the old one to see what happens.

if you don't have a spare, you obviously have another working computer you're posting from so maybe borrow it's power supply and see what happens.

No sound after reinstallation of os for my gateway gt5242e pc xp

Looks like you need drivers for your audio hardware, unfortunately, Gateway's support site (now affiliated with Acer) does not provide the drivers directly, instead they provide a driver update utility that will hopefully find the right drivers to get your sound working again. it helps.
