Having problems with your Gateway MT3705 Notebook ?

No power I have a Gateway MX8554b which does not come on even though there is a charge on its battery pack. When I connect through mains adapter there are no lights. what is the problem???


Answers :

The RAM may need reseating or it maybe faulty.
If reseating the RAM module/s doesn't work and if you have two RAM modules, then try one at a time.
You could take the RAM to your friendly shop and get them tested or test them in another laptop.

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.
