I have a Gateway MT3422 and I believe the motherboard is bad at this moment. It wont

boot. When I plug in the power cord the (right) light (in front) comes on showing I have

AC power plugged in. Then when I press the power/on button the left blue light comes on

(in front) and the light for the Hard Drive (it has what looks like disks) blinks twice

and at the same moment it sounds like the system is accessing the CD-Rom drive. And

that's it. It hangs there indefinitely. This takes about 2 seconds to get to this

point. Help anyone???

thank you. majikwiz

Eh, I'm dealing with the same problem right now. If your not getting any post errors. (assuming your laptops speakers are working) then your motherboard going bad is a likely culprit.
