To order one from gateway could be expensive so first I could explain how to check
Remove the psu from the computer and disconnect it from the motherboard then plug it into the wall outlet. On the 20 pin connector touch the green and any black wire with a paper clip, this should turn the psu on if not then it is bad. If it does turn on it could still be the problem among other things but try this first.

AT = two white connectors (sit side by side)
ATX = One big connector (20 Pins)
Next you wanto to count the number of molex connectors (5.25" connectors)
you have in use to your hdisk(s) and cd-rom, etc.
Then the number of 3.5" connectors
And finally any other odd used connectors to such things as case fans, cpu
Then go pick a new one up. Most PS are standard (AT or ATX). Gateway
is pretty standard of keeping things "standard".
I would recommend buying on off line, most shoppes will charge you a pretty
penny unless you find them on sale.
I HIGHLY recommend looking at www.pricewatch.com to look for a decent price
on a PS let alone ANY other parts you need for your PC!
