Replacing power supply on a gateway desktop 600xl


Answers :

To replace a standard ATX powersupply;
\015\012
\015\012remove left hand side cover (ensure power is disconnected first);
\015\012disconnect the 20.24 pin primary power plug (big wide white one plugs directly onto the mainboard, also disconnect the 4 pin AUX power plug, looks just like the other one but is a smaller square shaped plug (older P3 boards will not have this)
\015\012
\015\012disconnect all 4 pin power plugs from hard drives/cd drives and aftermarket fans (if any are installed), disconnect SATA power plugs from any SATA devices installed (flat black plug, 4 wires)
\015\012
\015\012disconnect floppy drive power plug (if app) small while 4 pin power plug, once all of these are disconnected, looking at the rear of the computer there will be 4 screws holding the power supply in place, one screw will be more to the centre slightly to ensure you do not put it in upside down, once you remove those screws the power supply will slide right out.. simply re-do these steps in revers for instaling the new power supply

We've had a Gateway 816GM desktop for about 3-years and except for the usual PC problems it's been fairly reliable. However, in the last few days it started locking up, no video, then it starting hanging and finally it will now not boot up at all. The HD light on the front doesn't even light up. A friend did a quick look at it and suggested the motherboard was gone. I'm assuming if the hard drive was bad the computer would at least boot up, but I don't even get the start up screen or any
