    I just recieved a gateway 552ge for free and thought that the power supply was the only thing that was wrong with the computer. However I replaced the power supply and come to find that wasn't it. I unplugged and replugged everything, but when i unplug the 4 pin 12v connector the computer fans and all will run. When I plug it back in nothing runs on the computer. Does anyone know of a way to tell if it is the processor or the board? Would like to spend as little money as possible considering I just got this one for fun.

    you might have gotten the wrong power supply
    -or-
    try switching the red or.. well whatever color it is..
    there should be a switch on the back of your computer.. on the power supply. underneath the fan.. switch it to the opposite side and try turning everything on then
