I have an older Gateway computer sitting in my attic that I wanted to fix as a hobby. I bought it in 2004, and one day while I was reading some email, it just turned off. I used that as an excuse to upgrade hah at the time.
The light comes on the mobo so I'm assuming it is getting juice from the power supply, however I get nothing from it. No fans, nothing. I tried to short the pins getting to the power button but no luck. I removed the RAM and still nothing. Possibly a power supply problem? Is the mobo just fried? Maybe the CPU?
Again this is just a hobby, but it woudl be fun to have it back to working order again. Thanks for any help!
Welcome to the forum! I would start your troubleshooting with the PSU. If you can get your hands on a digital multimeter, test the PSU, otherwise, see if you can just simply swap in a known working PSU to see if the computer will power up.
