I have an older Gateway desktop that I am trying to use for my niece. It's been working great up, but tonight I tried reinstalling Windows. It froze at the "Windows will now check system settings" and I had to force a shutdown (holding power).
When I rebooted, there was no VGA signal and the front power light was orange instead of green. The drives spin up and all fans work with the exception of the PSU fan. There are no audio beeps.
It has a 3 pin connector that plugs into the motherboard, labeled Aux Power. If it's connected it will not spin, however, if I disconnect it from the mobo it appears to work fine.
I tried different memory sticks, video card and power supply with same results.
I know this is a vintage system by todays standard, but it has a ton of sentimental value for us.
The motherboard is a Intel Fedora (Intel Solano 82815 chipset, 1Ghz PIII processor).
Thanks in advance!
