Customer Question
I have a Gateway FX4710...
I have a Gateway FX4710 computer and it looks like the power supply has failed. The computer has primary power in, but nothing happens when I hit the front panel power switch, no fan, no nothing. We had a storm come through here last night and it may have taken out the power supply. It was bought from Best Buy about 6 years ago and has been a workhorse for me. Can I get a replacement power supply from gateway or Best Buy?

Hi! You can purchase a power supply from Best Buy but it wouldn't be covered under any type of warranty so you would have to pay full price for it.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
