Gateway solo mt6840 power input is not working

\015 The power input on my solo mt6840 is no longer working. two different, good power supplies, when connected, aren't sensed by the computer nor does the battery charge up.\015\012i removed the battery and still no power is getting to the motherboard / the computer won't power up at all in this case.\015\012is there a fuse or something that can be replaced or is this a motherboard failure?\015

Answers :

I had the same exact problem, the computer techs I talked to all said it was either the DC Jack or the Motherboard. They will need to open your computer to check this out and they usually charge to do this. I had the DC Jack replaced and still had the same problem so their next suggestion was to get a new Motherboard which can set you back quite a bit. Try to find a Computer repair shop who will give you an estimate at a minimum to no charge, also ask if they are able to fix the Motherboard without totally replacing it if this is the problem. This will most likely be at half the cost of a new Motherboard. My computer was fixed for a total of $220, that was $150 for a Motherboard repair and about $50 for the DC Jack repair. The only drawback was the company ended up damaging the body of my computer and won't own up to it. Whatever you do, don't send it to Pell Technology and get it done in the near vicinity. Also take pictures of your computer before you leave it with any computer repair shop.
I have the same problem...Gateway is a peace of ****! Had it only for a 15 month... not worth the effort fixing it..I just bought another computer...never ever I'll buy the gateway again . It was wast of time and money!!
