Answers :

A.There are four versions of the Gateway GT5012 Desktop PC
1.GT5012 Media Center
2.GT5012b
3.GT5012c
4.GT5012H

The GT5012 Media Center uses an Intel Pentium 4 that operates at a 2.8Ghz frequency rate.

The other three versions, GT5012b, GT5012c, and GT5012H, use an Intel Pentium D, model 920 processor.

All must have the 4-pin ATX power connector on the motherboard, connected to power from the power supply.

(The plastic square connector on the motherboard with four sockets in it.
2x2.
It's to the right of the processor, and above the Ram Memory slots.
This provides power to the processor)

B.
1.The GT5012 Media Center uses Integrated Graphics. There is no graphics card shown for this model.
(Integrated graphics is also referred to as Onboard graphics. The graphics chip, {GPU}, is soldered to the motherboard. Hence, ONBOARD)

2.Same thing for the GT5012b. Integrated Graphics.
No graphics adapter card.

3.Same thing for the GT5012c. Integrated Graphics.
(Intel GMA 950)

4.Same thing for the GT5012H. Integrated Graphics.
(Intel GMA 900)

No video/graphics adapter card.

Did you install a video/graphics card? What is the name and model number?
Does it require a separate power cable?

All versions of the GT5012 listed above, do have a PCI-Express x16 slot for a graphics adapter card.

C.Have you checked your Ram Memory to be sure it is fully seated? A lot of times it looks like it is, but can be bumped loose. (Like when installing a new power supply)

Best method is to fully take them/it out, and re-install.

Your indication of 'Everything is running', may only mean the computer case fans are spinning, the processor fan is spinning, the power supply fan is spinning, and the harddrive is just sitting there spinning.

No processor running, and the harddrive will just sit there, and spin. No processor to find the boot record on the harddrive.

Why was the power supply changed in the first place?
Lighting strike? Brownout of utility power? Power supply failure?


Well you may have a bad video card or maybe even a monitor have you tried another monitor? if so, then you can purchase graphics cards at most electronics stores!

Initially, my fan would run fast and then slow. Then, it began to shut off frequently by itself; the monitor would state "monitor sleeping." Now, the CPU will not power on at all.

Fixing the problem would have been to change the fan when it started to fail. The bearings were probably going out and causing it to labor and slow down. When the fan quit altogether that was the big flashing warning sign "Do not run till you fix m ... HP Pavilion a1120n (PX759AA) PC Desktop
