Having problems with your Gateway M-6750 Notebook ?

Our gateway M6750 also shorted out with several metal clips insid

\015 Bought in 08 at best buy brand new. About Jan of 09 started to act strange, display would blank and sometimes would just reboot. Then just stopped coming on at all. When I moved it to turn it over I heard things rattling around inside. I opened the panel on the bottom and there were 3 little metal clips lying loose inside. I closed it right up and we drove straight to best buy. Well they said gateway is the only way to get that fixed. We contacted gateway and since it was still under warranty they took it in. They had it for 3 week and replaced the mother board. Never made any mention of the clips. Well about June 09 we took the laptop on a trip. I was having trouble with the keyboard, when I lifted it to put it back in it's case I heard that same rattling noise. Opened the case and sure enough 2 more of those crazy clips. They look like they just pull off the little plastic welded rivets just inside the bottom cover. We a call to gateway let's us know that we are out of warranty and we can order a motherboard from them for 370 bucks. I am seeing more and more of these clip reports. Does anyone know what recourse I have? The laptop is useless and I don't think an $800 laptop should only last a year. Thanks much. I love fixya.\015
