Question about Gateway Bestec ATX-300-12EB3 305w Power Supply (ATX30012EB3) Power Supply

2 Answers

Power supply I have a e machine it was working fine but I felt it running very hot , Yesterday the fans stopped working and my screen went blank. I tried to replace the power supply with the same Bestec ATX 300 same as what was in the computer. I think I hooked it up all right. The light came on in the front and a tiny green light on the mother board came on the fan made a half turn and then nothing. I returned this power supply and got another of the same one. And the same thing happened. Could it be my mother board or a short somewhere? I called gateway and they said must be a bad powersupply but two not working? seems odd to me, Again I am pretty sure I have it all plugged in right. And if it is my mother board and I have to send it out to get fixed. Is there any way I can put my hard drive into another computer to remove private information before I send it out? Any help would be greatly appricated!

Any alarms sounding? Looks like you have a RAM problem. Clean the 'teeth' of the RAM with an eraser and reinsert. When the RAM does not connect properly the machine loses its ability to 'think' so it does not start. The light on the MB and the fan spin says that the power supply is OK.

as i think ur processor over heated. or processor can dos not work fine or heat sink not installed properly. remove heat sink, and use heat sink component (a whithe colour gel. u can buy it any computer accessories shop) use it top of ur processor then attached heat sink. and connect processor fan. before installing heat sink check processor fan. then cleare CMOS by removeing battery (because this problem also can happen wrong frequency setting in CMOS setting).

The power supply or mother board probably went out. Did any other items in the house stop working? This happened to me years ago and the electric company reimbursed me for damages.
You can try unplugging the power cord for a few minutes, then retry listen for any beeps from the computer. If it is powering on but nothing on the screen and no beeps *********** board is probably toast.

If you are recieving power from just the Power cord without the battery. This could be a bad battery. If you are recieiving power but no video it would also be bad RAM. Try taking out the ram one piece at a time and testing one at a time. That should give you a better idea.

When is the Hipro HP-A2007AE power supply cooling fan to be on?


The fan should run constantly. It needs to be replaced. Otherwise the power supply will shut down when it gets hot. It can usually be replaced, but if the supply is cheap, just go out and get a new one.

Powermac g4 will not turn


this is a common problem with G4 Quicksilver. Your power-supply is defect and has to be replaced. I have 4 G4s in my lab with the same symptom: a short flash of the power-button light, sometimes it turns on, but mostly the machine is dead.
