Smoke when DC power plugged in on my Gateway M350 Notebook

\015 I'm trying to open unit to see what has failed. I removed about 30-40 screws from bottom and I still can't get unit apart. The front is loose, but the middle and back still seem to be tied down. How do I get to the guts of the laptop?\015\012Thanks.\015

I spilled a little white wine on my Gateway laptop keyboard. I immediately turned it upside down, then removed the battery and power cord. I let it dry overnight (upside down). The next day I replaced the battery and power cord but it did not power on. I left it for a while (plugged in) and later went back and it started right up. However, I received a message at first saying that the system wasn't recognizing a battery present. After unplugging and plugging back in the message changed from 'no

Hi, My Gateway MX3215 notebook computer no longer powers up with the AC plug. The battery was 5% and the AC plug was connected when the computer died, and it has not come back since.

Fujitsu n6210 - no power. Got new ac adapter and nothing lights up. No noticeable event prior to dieing. Worked fine when I shut it down. The front panel on the front edge was lit showing that power was getting to the machine. The next day, nothing. Suspect faulty connection where power supply connects to machine. Would like to get ahold of service manual for this model notebook. I am a certified warranty tech for Gateway and Dell desktop workstations.


Hi,As far as i know Fujitsu have not released a service manual outside of their own certified tech centers.I'm afraid it's going to be trial and error for you at this point. Seeing as you are a tech for Gateway and Dell you should be fair ... Fujitsu LIFEBOOK N6210 PC Notebook

I've had my Gateway M-6843 Notebook for about 18 months. Since the day I bought it from Best Buy, the AC adapter port has been finicky.

Until now, the problem could usually be resolved by fiddling with the adapter in the port, unti
