With so many service calls for the same or similar problems, it would appear that another component in the system is burning out your motherboard and DVD drive. I'm willing to bet that your power supply is the issue.
If it is still under warranty, send it back and make that suggestion. Otherwise seriously consider a new computer. If you have to pay for repairs on this one, you will end up buying a new motherboard and a new power supply.

There are may motherboards, but most have writing on them as to what is suppose to plug where. For example, for the power switch, the lettering might be "Pwr" or "Power" or "Pwr sw". The pins are usually together and should fit the plug on the end of the wire.

Gateway GT5014 will not boot.


Ok, this is a mother board issue. the entire mother board seems to be malfunctioning. the blinking amber/green light is confirming this. the mother board may have some fried circuitry and it will have to be replaced in this situation.

I would recommend extracting the mother board and stripping it. look for any discoloring factors that will lead to a burn out location. this will direct you to the necessary repair zone.

Please rate and have a great day:)

My cooling fan on my mother board start making noise now as soon as you power up the pc it shuts down could it over heat that quickly or did it ruin mother board?


It is possible to burn out a processor in a matter of seconds without cooling. Please do not attempt to restart the unit, until you replace the colling fan on the processor. If it's not the processor fan/heatsink, you may have lucked out, but don't restart it till you replace the fans.The fan that sits on your cpu is the main concern, if it's one of the others the board should shut down automatically in order to stop this scenario from occuring.

Why did the mother board burn out in my computer even though its only 5 monthes old


Unfortunately, in order to reduce costs and prices, especially in the low-end group, the motherboard manufactureres stared using less good materials thus leading to problems of all sorts that can occur in less than 1 year after the purchase. Luckly for you, even though it's 5 months, it still has warranty. Nonetheless, if you overclocked it, that could be another cause for its failure.
