A friend gave me we her old Gateway DX4300-003 for free because it wasnt working. I set it up and pressed the power button, the fans spins and it lights up but the cd rom doesnt open and i get no display at all and no beeps (I'm not even sure if these machine does beep). I cracked it open and the first thing i saw was the part that holds the heat-sink down was broken. Took out the heat sink, processor and the memory out and still no display or post. i did touch the processor while the power was on and it was hot. I've narrowed it down to either the processor or motherboard. Was looking for any input from anyone on this. I'm not looking one spending anymore then 100 bucks on this because it was free so if I order something i want to be right. thanks.
