With all due respect, from what you've said so far it's obvious you are not yet sufficiently competent to go poking around inside a PC case to sort out a power problem. You may do more harm than good to both yourself and the PC. I would suggest you swallow your pride and place the PC in the hands of a paid technician. Fitting a component is one thing, but a blind stab in the dark is another ball game entirely.
Oh my .. is this how you treat all your members??
Nothin .. ziltz .. nada..
Checked the switch in the back first thing and even switched it back and forth a few times. Haven't took a meter to it yet. Measured 120VAC at end of power cord just to make sure. Took out supply and tried just powering it up after close inspection and checkin the fuse and nothin. I have a spare power supply that I just ripped out of a Packard [bleep] and it won't do anything either when I plug it in.
So I'm thinkin they need some sorta input before they will turn on?
Also .. this Gateway's power supply is of course unique. I have a couple around here but they won't fit.
So I was hoping to save myself some work and try and get it to work with the one thats in it.
P.S. I'm a journeyman electronics tech .. have the card to prove it
