    Hello, I have replaced the power supply on a Gateway PC. The PC starts to boot then hangs with the message "no response from MSD". I think I may not have re-connected all the devices properly, or, not plugged in the power to somewhere. Rather than start troubleshooting I thought someone here might know that specific error code so I can go directly to the problem. Any help? Thanks.

    Sounds like there is no signal from the video card. How far along in the POST does it get? I am also not sure if Gateway uses standard ATX power supplys, you may need to get one directly from Gateway. Compare the pinouts from the old PSU and the one you just put in and see if the voltages are all the same with the same number of pins. This would be the connector that clips onto the motherboard.
