Having problems with your Gateway M-6750 Notebook ?

Gateway M-6750 Motherboard Power Short

\015 Joe, I can definitely confirm this is a serious problem with Gateway's m6750 laptops, a friend of mine purchased a unit about 1.5 years ago,and had me install software and updates right afterward. After an houror so working on the laptop, the unit just cut power in the middle of working on windows updates. Moving the laptop, I immediately noticed metallic rattling inside the laptop's chassis, disassembled the cover for the ram memory access, and extracted 3-5 little metal pieces, which greatlyconfused me as to what they did. They probably caused a short on themotherboard as you also suspect, so my friend took it to Best Buy, wherehe had also purchased an extended service plan (thank goodness) with the laptop, and had it serviced. However, as my friend described whatI had experienced with the laptop to the Best Buy geek squad agent,they idiotically placed blame on me, and took a month to service themotherboard fault. Now, months later, my friend is experiencing a reccurence of the problem. I do not have anything against Gateways,but in my past experience with their desktops at school, they historically demonstrate poor build quality with their products.\015
