No signs of power on my gateway mt3705

\015 One day i went to turn my gateway mt3705 on and nothing happened, i checked the power cord and its good, but when i plug it in thee computer power light doesnt turn on, my battery shows 75% chaarge but computer still shows no signs of life? WOULD it be the on/off switch? or some kind of internal battery,or what?\015

Answers :

The power supply provides only 48V (or what ever is listed on the back) but the computer breaks out +12 -12 +5 -5 etc and if that power regulator is damaged it will not come on.
\015\012Remove the battery and unplug, hold the power button on for 2-3 minutes, plug in ONLY the power cord and press the power button.
\015\012Most likely if you don't get any text on the screen the internal power regulator/converter is damaged.
