I have a Gateway 505gr that I had been using with my tv. It doesn't turn on anymore. No sign of power whatsoever. I got a new power supply and nothing changed. I think my motherboard is broken. It's not the newest computer so I don't want to spend much money to fix it (I bought it used for $150). Should I replace the motherboard? Can I use the parts that work and get a used case and motherboard and create a new system?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Ryan
