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.
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!
Yeah I thought the same thing too. I ordered the motherboard online because they wanted to charge me $200 for it so I said f it, I will do it myself. So I am sticking to my plan to buy a new computer. Thanks again everyone. I just wanted to talk to rregular folks rather get screwed putting too much into this one to folks telling me what I already knew.
