Having problems with your Gateway MT3418 Notebook ?

Gateway 3418 wont boot - no video

\015 Check this\015\012If you remove the battery, disconnect the power cord, let the PC sit 5 mins, then hold down the power button for about 30 seconds. THEN, reconnect the power cord (battery still out of laptop), it will probably start up properly. Put the battery back in after the startup.\015\012I don't know why or what this indicates, but it works 90% of the time.\015\012I've read that resynching the battery will help, but I see no better sucess rate after trying that.\015\012Ciao Y'all,\015\012Bob\015

Answers :

Sounds like the charger board has a short or the ac adapter is malfunctioning.The battery itself may be the cause but not likely.
