Looks like a large watch battery, it will either be in a holder flat on the board or standing sideways, some are soldered to the board if it dont look like it will pop out it is soldered and dont break anything trying to remove it.

I turn the power on and my light stays yellow and the fans work but it beeps


The beeps you hear are BIOS Beep Codes and tells you what problem is keeping the computer from booting. We need at a minimum, the computer make & model or the motherboard model #. If you also know what BIOS it uses (Award, AMI (American Megatrends), Phoenix...etc), this was displayed during the boot process when the computer worked if you happen to remember it.
Once you know this we can find the code that tells what the problem is.

Can i replace the audio chip?


No, at least I wouldn't recommend it.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

The mounting of an audio chip uses a style of surface mount.
BGA.
Ball Grid Array.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball_Grid_Array

Referring back to the older Processor's, they used pins on the bottom.
These pins mated up to socket holes in the processor socket.

With a BGA surface mount there are no pins.
Solder balls take the place of the pins.
The motherboard has matching copper pads for mating the solder balls.

The chip is set correctly in place on top of the copper pads, and the chip is then properly heated until the solder balls melt, and solder the chip to the copper pads.

It would be Much easier to just install a Sound Card.
The Sound Card can be installed in any available PCI or PCI-E x1 slot.

Gateway 506GR motherboard,

http://support.gateway.com/s//PC/R/3724/4367nv.shtml

Click on Components in the list.
On this page scroll down to the Motherboard heading, and click on -
102007 - Intel (Ausberg) No CPU Motherboard R0

Now click on - Specifications

To the right of the Add-n Cards heading we can see,

1) The motherboard has two PCI expansion slots. {Two PCI Conventional bus connectors)
These expansion slots are White in color.

2) One PCI-Express x1 slot.
(One PCI Express x1 bus add-in card connector)

View of Gateway Intel (Ausberg) motherboard used in a Gateway 506GR desktop computer,

http://www.ascendtech.us/itemdesc.asp?ic=mb4gwaugsburg

Scroll down towards the bottom of the page, and view the motherboard photo, and matching chart underneath.

Z1 points to the two long White PCI slots.
Z points to the shorter Black PCI-E x1 slot.

When the Sound Card is installed one of the expansion slot covers will have to be removed.
(Expansion slot area is shown as D in this rear view,

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/3724/3724rv.shtml )

You may want to just use a Sound Card, that has basically the same specifications as the OnBoard audio you had before, (Integrated Audio), or you may wish to upgrade your sound system a bit with a better Sound Card, and be able to use satellite speakers, and a woofer.

Is there a video controller driver for the 506GR model when running windows 7? the gateway web site does not support.


The 506GR has an old Intel (Augsburg) motherboard, and onboard video. The hardware is from 2005, and has no support for Windows 7. Unfortunately, you will need to upgrade.

Gateway 506GR Front Panel


did you replace the motherboard? if you did with a non gateway replacement there is a good chance you will have to re-wire the buttons.

if not, just look for an oddly shaped "gateway" plug that plugs into the receiving socket on the MB. If you dont own a multi meter and soldering iron now is a good time to invest. also get some wire strippers and cutters.

Gateway desktop 506gr power issue narrowed down?


That was pretty unclear.  Is there a kind of burning symptom that suggests a short to you?  It seems to me that what happened is that either there was a power outage and your system thus shut down...all you'd have to to would be hit the computer's power button to turn it back on...or a fan somewhere died and therefore the system won't power up until you replace or repair that.  At least get a vacuum in there and brush out the dust so you can work.

What happened when you got a simplified system that 'worked'?  Was the power supply's fan spinning, at least?  What's the green light on, anyhow?
