Default Gateway E 4100 Series

Hello all, I have a friends Gateway E 4100 series desktop. And it crashed several times over the last 2 weeks. And now it turns on & I get no bios no nothing. The p/s fan spins the cpu fan spins everything seems normal. But no bios just black screen.
I have tested the ram the video card & both are fine. The power supply has a test button on it,& with the machine powered off. I tried the test button & everything powers up,but still no bios. Is the p/s dieing/dead or could it be the cpu has gone bad?

Any help is greatly appreciated

I have a Gateway E-4100 myself The small form factor version.
It did the same as you describe.
Is there a small red LED light burning on the motherboard?
If so, good chance the mobo is gone.

I have Re_tested things today sorry it took so long. Anyway YES there is a red led light on the m/b as well as a Green one. With Nothing plugged into the p/s but the m/b. When i hold the test switch on the p/s. The red light stays lite as does the green one. But when I power up the computer normally,the Red light lights & then goes out. I am going to try flashing the bios at this point.
It still gives me no Bios Beeps & does not post the Bios on screen.
Any advice at this point would be greatly appreciated.

I have a gateway E 4100 as well. Mine keeps going into save power mode too. I have been told to check the video card, but for the life of me can't figure out where it is at? Anyone know?

Mine was integrated into the motherboard.
