Having problems with your Gateway LX6200-01 PC Desktop ?

A Gateway motherboard

\015 I bought a Gateway LX6200 in Oct 08. In Dec 08 one morning I\015\012went to turn on the PC and all that happened was the power button just flashed\015\012on & on. Turned out it was a part in the motherboard. I sent it off to\015\012Gateway and after 2 months they gave me a new PC, same model. Now In July the\015\012power button is starting to flash off & on but so far still works. I want\015\012to replace the motherboard if it goes out again. My question is, what good AMD motherboard's are out\015\012there to replace the Gateway motherboard?\015

Answers :

It's a tough problem to overcome. Gateway/Dell etc have support that you can contact or send it parts for a replacement. The downside is these parts are typically only replaceable through them. I had a Dell machine way back and wanted to purchase new RAM and a video card. They wanted to charge my an obscene amount for the new memory and the model I had would not support a newer video card. I ended up breaking away and venturing out on my own. I purchased a custom-built (by me) rig and haven't had any problems so far.
The upside to running with the "premades" is that they have good support and return policies, but doing stuff on your own (like replacing a motherboard) would probably violate the user agreement (meaning they won't warranty any work) and you'd be stuck.
Venturing out on your own is tough if you're not familiar with PCs. Vendors are usually pretty good about their return policies.

In your case, if you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself, stick with Gateway. I would suggest then trying to see if you can "upgrade" your model PC to another and see if you have better luck.

Replacing Motherboard My Gateway GT4024 desktop won't boot and monitor doesn't connect.
