    This may be in the forum somewhere, but considering how old the PC is I hope this is quicker than trying to find it.

    A Gateway GP6-400c is acting up. I feel ridiculous here, but the CPU fan spins and power LEDs come on, but there has not been any button pushed. As soon as you connect the power supply up to the outlet, the CPU fan spins automatically and you cannot turn the PC on. I suspected the M/B but a replacement gave the same symptom. I even tested the P/S and it was good. I've been in the business for over 10 years now, so I guess my age is getting to my memory.

    Anyone remember what causes this?

    Thanks so much:eek:
