Having problems with your Gateway MT6840 Notebook ?

Gateway MT6840 Laptop will not power up

\015 The laptop is 18 months old, and has been working fine. The other day it was plugged in and my wife opened it up. The screen said that the last time it was turned off it was not done right. She pressed the button for start in safe mode, and everything shut down. The lights on the front do not turn on. We live overseas working for the Navy and there is no support over here. MT6840 will not power up at all.\015\012\015\012Although the battery seems questionable, the AC power supply definitely works. I tested it with another Gateway laptop and it gives power with no problem. \015\012\015\012Since you don't need the battery when using AC power, I am suspecting either the power jack where the power supply connects to or the CMOS battery.\015
