Default Gateway FPD2485W won't turn on


I have a Gateway FPD2485W that does not power on. when plugged in, the power light doesn't even glow, it is simply dead. I've replaced all the caps on the power supply and the 2 on the inverter board, but this hasn't made any difference. Does anybody have any ideas? I'm sort of a novice when it comes to component level repair, so any suggestions would be great!

First, are you sure you have the flat flexible cable installed correctly from the logic board to the front panel switch?
Whatever I do, I consider it a success, if in the end I am breathing, seeing, feeling and hearing!

The standard procedure here is to post clear focused pictures of all your boards (top down view) using the manage attachments functions so the pictures are attached to this forum. Please do not post inline because it slows down the loading of pages.

After you have posted the pictures using manage attachments, we can suggest test points.

If you are new to this forum, we can help a lot more if you please post clear focused pictures (max resolution 2000x2000 and 2MB) of your boards using the manage attachments button so they are hosted here. Information and picture clarity compositions should look like this post.

We respectfully ask that you make some time and effort to read some of the guides available for basic troubleshooting. After you have read through them, then ask clarification questions or report your findings.

Please do not post inline and offsite as they slow down the loading of pages.
