The load is one thing, like how many watts does it supply. You'll want that or higher in the new one. Just as important though is what is the new power supply compatible with. Some name brand machines made theirs with unique dimensions so that only theirs would fit in the case... If you have a standard size case, then you're probably good to go. Look at the plug for it, there are two bundles of cables in some, and the plug type. If possible, checkout the tech specs on the model on the Gateway website and that should give you the basic info you need for searching on a replacement.

Computer will not turn on how to fix it


I do not have experience with the Acer Aspire 5600U, so I will write about such problems in general. A desktop computer that will not turn on usually has a bad power supply, assuming you've checked the power outlet, power cord to the computer, and the fuse in the power supply. Many computers and monitors built a few years ago have electrolytic capacitors in the power supply that go bad. You can identify a bad capacitor visually. It either leaks or the top of the capacitor is no longer flat but bulges. Desktop computers with bad power supplies commonly have two bad electrolytic capacitors that bulge on top. To fix the problem, you have to be comfortable unsoldering the bad part(s) and soldering in the replacement(s). You also have to be able to identify the specifications of the part(s) you need to replace. A Google search on replacing bad capacitors will give you lots of information, including a number of good YouTube videos. Alternatively, you can buy a replacement power supply.

Gateway GM 5072 won't turn on, it just flicker.


One of two things a clogged up CPU fan and block may be the contributor over heated and possibly fried the board. The other issue may be a bad power supply unit, replace the unit and reboot. John

Hey, i have a gateway gm 5472. when i try to boot the computer up, firstly, i have no video or sound, the led power light does not come on, but the fams run. I have a MCP61PM-AM motherboard in it with Amd...


Hi,

I would have suspected that your RAM needs to be removed, cleaned & then replaced which more often than not sorts out the problem you have described.
But since you mention the power LED not working, I suspect that you have a faulty power supply.
Try connecting a power supply from another working PC to see if this solves the problem.
If so, power supplies are relatively inexpensive & shouldn't set you back more than $20-$30 for a descent unit.

Best wishes,

I have a Gateway 840 GM and I have just replaced


At first check the battery that's on you motherboard. The battery powers the bios on your motherboard. The bios detects you push the power button and turns on the pc. If the battery is dead the bios has no power, so it cannot detect you push the power button and will not turn on the pc. So replacing the battery will solve the problem. If the battery is not the problem, I think your motherboards bios is dead. Maybe it can be fixed but you'll have to send it back to the manufacturer I think.

Have a 815 GM computer that when I push the power switch, the power light comes on only when I keep it pressed in, but the compter won't power up. It may be a power supply or a fuse problem? Does this...


It is a power supply problem. The only fuses are in the power supply. Do not open your power supply they can cause a shock. A new power supply is only about $20

I have a Gateway 503gr desktop. When I press the on button, the computer shutters but does not turn on.


I suggest the power supply is bad. Your Gateway 503GR uses an ATX style power supply. The style found in about 90 percent of desktop computers.

(Click on Components. Then click on Power Supply in the list)

Uses a 300 watt power supply. I suggest Tigerdirect or Newegg, for a replacement. If your computer is dirty inside, I also suggest cleaning it out.
Use a can of compressed air for computers, WITH the computer unplugged from the surge protector.

This power supply has an odd form factor so just "any" power supply won't work.
