    Gateway dx4820 would not power up, suspect a power surge. Replaced power supply and mother board but still will not power up, any suggestions?

    what else do you have connected
    disconnect everything thats not needed to post and get a screen bios

    did you use the same CPU and use thermal grease
    did you replace the memory or use the old memory ?

    does the card have onboard graphics ?

    Thanks etaf, in checking connections i discovered i had overlooked the power supply input settings, it was set for 22o, changed to 115 and powered right up. Thanks for the quick reply.
