Having problems with your Gateway 830GM PC Desktop ?

Gateway 830GM power

\015 I always had problems with my machine every now and again. It would just freeze up and the light would stay on solid. I couldn't hit control alt delete or anything. Seemed like hardware because I never had/found any viruses. Had to always shut off manually. \015\012\015\012Recently it just won't turn on and power light isn't on in back of computer even when cord is plugged in. I popped it open and went through each cord coming from power supply and would try and get power light on back of computer to come on. It came on for everything except when I plugged back in cord going to mother board (master). Is this a mother board problem or power supply?\015

Answers :

Could be power supply, unplug every thing from the board, remove all drives, cards everything but the mem. turn it on, if you get some beeps, add your Hard drive. The power supply may not have the guts it take to run all the peripherals it used to, this test will tell you if its the board or power supply.
