Hello,miteea, and welcome to Geeks to go !

That appears to be a somewhat common issue with that Gateway Model. Usually trained techs replace the motherboard rather the tracing the problem on the board itself and from you description sounds like it is a board issue. Please see this thread for a user with same issue may help you decide what to do.
