My gateway 503gr will not power on when you press the power button has power to mother board every thing is plugged in there is a green light on the power supply and the mother board and the power switch...


This could have a bad power supply (in this case I would try a new one just in case).
All other things being normal, I would guess a bad motherboard.
The best thing to do is disconnect everything but the CPU and memory and try to start it.
If it starts, then start connecting stuff until it doesn't start--this will tell you what is bad.

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.

I press the power button on the front and no fans run


Sounds like your power supply is not supplying 12v to the system. Check all your power connectors are seated properly on your motherboard, if so then i'm afraid you need a new power supply.

System wont turn on and there is a solid green light at the top of the mother board of my gateway 310 pc replaced batt on motherboard and it still wont turn on.


hello, this be caused by several things , i am assuming your are okay with opening up a PC since you have already changed the onboard battery.

here are few things you can try to further troubleshoot:
1: though the ligh on motherboard is on, power supply can still be faulty, so lets test that with a paper clip trick,
follow this link there are pictures and very clear instructions: http://www.ehow.com/how_4732521_test-desktop-power-supply.html
if power supply is bad, well then you know what to do... change it.
if the power supply is good:
2: remove all the RAM (memory) chips from motherboard and plug the power cable back in and observe the response (you may or maynot hear THREE beeps) now plug in memory chip and try powering up and try with one chip at a time...if PC boots up with any of the chips in it you knkow you have a faulty memory.
if that didn't work:
3: with everthing put back together try disconnecting just the hard drive and power it to see if you see BIOS screen.
if not:
4: many time this worked for me with Gateway PCs, reseating CPU in its slot but only do it you feel confident doing it because you can end up with a GIANT door stop if any of the pins on the CPU are/is damaged.
you would need some thermal-paste to go back on between CPU and heatsink.
if that didn't work..i think you are up to buying new PC.

let me know if you need more help or not clear about anything...
good luck

Gateway 507gr wont power on but looks like ps unit is good


Make sure you are plugging in your P.S. to Motherboard properly. This can happen if you are off by one pin on a 20 pin Supply on a 24 pin Motherboard. If you never opened the case and it just started happening, maybe one of your cards came out of its slot or your CPU Fan is not running.

Things to try:

1. Check that the cpu fan is properly connected to the correct port marked CPU FAN.

2. Make sure the power cables are connected correctly to the motherboard.

3. Test the button switch with a multi-tester to make sure that it tests good.

4. Make sure the power switch is connected to the correct pins on the motherboard.

5. With the computer off pop the cr2032 battery out and pop it back in after a few minutes.

6. Test the power supply with either another motherboard or a power supply tester.

7. Test the motherboard with another power supply.

8. If all else fails replace the motherboard I have had a bad one from time to time even out of the box, and if you have a spare cpu you may want to test with that also. Cpu's hardly ever go bad I think I have had two go bad ever, not counting power surges and storm damage.

Gateway 700XL, yellow light only when power is pushed on.


You are on the right track. First, swap out the power supply. That normally is the issue. If that's not the issue, verify that the power switch indeed is working. You can do that by determining which color wires are for the power switch, then hold a multimeter set to resistance on the ends of those two wires. When the button is pressed, it should go to zero. If not, then the switch is fautly. That is an unlikely scenario, however. If the new power supply fails to work and the switch is okay then the problem is the motherboard.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

E machine no power


Make sure the RAM is seated, the CPU, any video card and the Power supply is properly connected.

If you power it on, still get no POST (beep at startup from the PC speakers) its time to replace the motherboard.
