Having problems with your Gateway GT4010 (RBGT4010) PC Desktop ?

I have the exact same problem. Only the fan runs & light blinks yellow a few times thrn cuts off. The power button won't turn blue. This happens every 5 or 6 months the motherbboard goes out. Best buy screwed me

Answers :

No, it's bad capacitors. When the power supply went the first time around (which I assume is what happened) if the power supply and motherboard were not BOTH replaced, then it'll just keep happening.\015\012
\015\012When one goes out, both usually need to be replaced.\015\012
\015\012See http://www.badcaps.net/forum/showthread.php?t=388 for the "Legend of the bad caps". True or not? I don't know, but it's a fun read anyway.\015\012
