Gateway gt motherboard failure

\015 I am typing this on the Gateway GT4010 that I got in the mail today.\015\012I ordered this piece of S*%# because he wouldnt listen to me when I told him not to get another one. As the 1st had failed due to Power Suply going bad & causeing MotherBoard failure. And he "Just Had"\015\012to have another.\015\012\015\012 I have been all over the net and talked to all kinds of people about thisand this is basicly what Ive concluded. First off Gateway is not going to do a recall. Gateway does not seem to care that the power suplies are defective. Gateway Support is horrible. If you turn on computer & you get a yellow light but no blue light you need a new Motherboard ( that is unless you can fix a board yourself ). If both lights come on but still nothing happens its the Hard Drive But in any case it seems the real problem is the power suply so I would suggest replaceing it before it fries your board. Thats what im going to do before this board goes bad.\015

Answers :

Yeah that's right. Change/replace the power supply. Yet, you have to test the power supply's conditions if it still works alright. since you are suspecting both motherboard and HDD first. If yellow light comes and no action to the whole machine then that must be something in the motherboard. Before you finally follow your decision to change the power supply, check the motherboard. There are capacitors and examine if it didn't bloat. If it does, just take out the capacitors with exact microfarad and voltage specs or change the whole board. And granting though that the supply is bad, there must be some electric signals that have caused to the mother board which will eventually, at the end of the day, you encounter the same problem with it.
