Gateway GT5240E desktop won't power up

\015 We went to cut the computer on one day after using every day for just over a year, and only the fan was running. The blue light on the power button would not light, and it never cued the CPU to display anything. I called Gateway and they tried to be helpful, but the computer stopped working almost a year to the day we bought it - go figure! So, they suggested there was a power supply or motherboard issue and I should send the computer to them or take to Best Buy. I had a friend look at it and he saw that the power supply was bad, and he replaced it. The computer worked fine for a day, but then would not come on again unless there was significant down time - like a week. My friend now thinks the mother board has a short in it - does that sound logical? Any other help to provide? My hard drive and memory are intact, thank goodness. I just want my computer to work.\015\012\015\012Wow, I'm so glad I found this site.I've had my Gateway FX 4710 UB003A desktop for about five months. I have had two serious problems with the computer. (1.) The NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT overheats every time I try to play any of my games AT ANY RESOLUTION ON LOW QUALITY SETTINGS. Warcraft 3 will not even run properly. I bought this computer to play games! It sould be able to handle games from 6 years ago! I can fix this problem by removing the casing on the tower and placing an industrial fan next to it on HIGH.(2.)Two months ago I tried to turn my computer on. The power light came on, the fan came on, and it gave me one short beep. Nothing else happened. I tried turning it on and off about 10 times until I got it to start up properly. I have had to deal with this problem every time I have tried to turn my computer on FOR THE LAST THREE MONTHS and Gateway support is USELESS. Luckily I have a 1 year warranty. I have talked to Gateway support recently and they suggested that I send the computer in to be "serviced." I doubt that they will successfully fix it if I send it in. Is there any way I can convince them to just give me a refund or at least a replacement computer?\015

More like the video card. I now have the same problem after 5 years. I noticed that when I played games the computer would freeze up. Then it got to the point where it would not start. I replaced the power supply thinking it was the problem but agian it shut down and will not restart. I noticed the video card was very hot.
Try replacing your power supply, thats prolly the problem
