The pc will not turn on, and on the motherboard there is a green light making a high pitched whistling sound, after fooling around with the switch and connectors for some time the pc will come on and run perfectly, is my motherboard doomed? or could be something simple to fix?

It appears that Gateway uses an INTEL motherboard that was made especially for Gateway, and not available to anyone else. Trying to find a manual for that motherboard is next to impossible to find. If the PC is still under warranty, I'd try to get Gateway to fix it.
