Having problems with your Gateway MX6447 Notebook ?

Lights on, no display, doesn't boot

\015 I've diagnosed mine as a bad hard drive controller on the motherboard. Drive works in another laptop and another good drive won't register either.\015

Answers :

Had similar problem on sony vaio. when power depressed, i could hear the cd drive turn a bit, the hard drive light blink once, and that's it. power light would remain on, but nothing else. I took it apart and resoldered all the main chasis grounds on the motherboard and shorted/resetted the board battery(memory/clock) and put everything back together and started up fine. got lucky i guess.
