|The Gateway came with a video card, I tried putting the old video card with same results, no input signal.|
Yea, the old power supply would kick off with an audible "click". Took it out of the computer to see if I could fix it, like I have done in the past with other machines. While on the bench I heard a sizzling noise and then there was smoke. The old power supply was taken out of the computer before the serious crap happened, I hope.
I'm not much of a gamer any more, I do work apps mostly with my music running or I watch movies on the net, and furthering my education. Need the p'ter for work mostly and really can't afford another right now.
Kids got into the shop, and made a mess. I didn't catch them, except on there way out. Computer looked OK I'm really good at taking things apart and putting them back together, I just don't understand right now what the problem is.
And I don't know how to dis-able or in-able igp or pci-e and can't find much help on Gateways site at all. So I'm in the forums asking. Unfortunately for me and who helps me, at this stage, If you all will, info needs to be simple, but detailed. And I'm looking for a book. Praying the motherboard didn't get hurt.
I used an adapter for the card to hookup an old CRT I have with no luck.
