Having problems with your Gateway MT3705 Notebook ?

Gateway boot problem

\015 I have a relatively new Gateway laptop MT3422, purchased 1.5 years ago. When I try to turn the computer on the LED lights work and the fan makes noise, but the screen will not boot.\015

Answers :

This mostly happens when your motherboard is bad or one of the memory modules is bad.
\015\012The led light comming on indicates your power pack is ok but a component is failing to start especially when the laptop stops at the first screen stage where the manufacturer names appears.
\015\012The steps needed to solve this kind of problem would require technical skills and physical inspection.
\015\012If you still have a waranty period then seek a free service repair from an authorized or certified gateway service centre at the nearest centre closest to you.
\015\012If your warranty has expired, i still advise taking your Laptop to the closest Gateway service centre.
