Problem Hardware Make & Model:Motherboard
Error Messages:
A couple of weeks ago my friend and i tried to put a bigger hard drive in my gateway gc-430. We screwed up the computer somehow because even after i put the original hard drive in, the computer is still messed up. When u turn on the computer and the monitor the computer sounds fine but nothing appears on the monitor, it just stays blank. Then one day it just started working again for about two weeks and now its back to being messed up. The tech from gateway said it was a motheboard problem, but i dont know if thats it. Can someone please help me i need this computer for work, thanx.

Hi,

Check that all cards, memory, ribbon cables and CPU are well seated in their slot/connector/socket. Make sure all power connectors are well attached.
Also reseat memory sticks.

Hi,

To rule out a peripheral causing this, try disconnecting all ribbon cables at the motherboard end and removing any non-essential cards (e.g. sound card, modem, nic...) except the video card (if not built-in). Does the system now power up correctly?

Also make sure the edge of the memory sticks are clean and that it's socket is free of dust.
