Hello,

I have a Gateway Model GT5016E. It worked normally until one day it would not turn on. I took it to a computer repair shop & they said I needed a new motherboard. I replaced the motherboard but the problem still presists. I even purchased new RAM & a power supply. The desktop still does not boot. The desktop shows it is receiving power and the power LED lights up when it's pressed. I have no clue what else it can be. Any answers that can help resolve this will really help.

Thank you in advance.

I did all of this. Nothing works. I took my new & old power supply to the repair shop & was told both work fine & hard drive works fine. I was told it was just the motherboard. Now that I replaced so much to it I can't see what else could be wrong. Luckily everything was cheap. Replacement Motherboard, $20. 2 GB of RAM, $20. New Power Supply, $33.(Returned it) I am absolutely stuck. Unless I can find an easy fix, I plan to just by a new one. Thanks for the help!

The 20$ motherboard must have been an old one recovered from a discarded computer.

Did they give you your old motherboard back or did they use it for another sick computer?

What about your old motherboard with the new power supply?

That repair shop of your yours does not inspire me.

There is no easy fix to this.

I suggest an HP product, brand new, 500Gb, 4gb Ram, Intel, windows 8.1,excellent performance, brand new for $350 USD
