I have an off the shelf Gateway that recently stopped responding. Powers up, HD and Optical Drives spin up but nothing else. As a self admitted newbie I want to troubleshoot and to repair myself but other than checking connections and looking for possible visible signs of a short or burn, I'm not sure where to start.
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Processor 4600
320 GB 7200 RPM SATA II Hard Drive
FIC K2BC51 Motherboard with NVIDIA GeForce 6100 Chipset
Any advice would be appreciated
