Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

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.

Answers :

Hi PLease try removing the Ram from from your machine and clean the surface and insert it back in case if it didn't work then you have to manually switch on the power button from the motherboard itself or check this link http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/3200Series/1008289/1008289nv.shtml
Dear Rythmickarma,
\015\012 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. \015\012
  3. When the computer normally boots up there is a POST check Beep sound from CPU .. do you here any beep?
  4. \015\012
  5. When you tap on numlock key on your keyboard, do you see numlock LED toggle between ON and OFF state?
  6. \015\012
  7. Is there any signal on monitor .. When disconnected from the CPU, the monitor should show Self test signal .. does it happen?
  8. \015\012
  9. Open the chassis and check if you can feel the spinning of Hard drive...
  10. \015\012
  11. 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..
\015\012Please try the above steps and let me know. Hope that helps.
