How to connect power led, power sw and hdd led on a gateway 3200S mother boad?


go to the motherboard manufacturers website and download the manual. In it there will be a picture of the motherboard connectors you are talking about then just connect them. The power switch connector can go either way as there is no polarity on it.

Gateway 3200S. will not begin to power up. a green led is on at the top of the mainboard. that is the only indicator of power.


Dear Rythmickarma,
As you said the main power LED seems to be glowing but the system is not powering on... so there are few things to check here:
  1. Remove all other connections apart from Power supply, keyboard, mouse and monitor and see if that makes any difference.
  2. When the computer normally boots up there is a POST check Beep sound from CPU .. do you here any beep?
  3. When you tap on numlock key on your keyboard, do you see numlock LED toggle between ON and OFF state?
  4. Is there any signal on monitor .. When disconnected from the CPU, the monitor should show Self test signal .. does it happen?
  5. Open the chassis and check if you can feel the spinning of Hard drive...
  6. Remove the power supply cord from the back of the computer and press and hold the power button for few seconds .. this would drain the accumulated power from the CPU components .. now reconnect the power supply and see if that makes any difference..
Please try the above steps and let me know. Hope that helps.

Regards,
Srinivas

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)
http://support.gateway.com/s/POWER/102015/102015nv.shtml

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.
