Having problems with your Gateway MX6453 Notebook ?

Gateway mx6453 thought I heard a snap and the comptuer went dead.

\015 Thought I smelled a transformer type smell but wasn,t sure. About an hour into using it,it just went dead.I pushed the start button,the light in front flashes red a few times and thats it. I have a bad connect with power cord into the computer. Outside chance the battery is dead and can't make a connection with power cord but I don't think so. My last hope is here.\015

Answers :

It sounds like you have a fault with the power port on the mainboard or\015\012power board (quite a few gateways have a separate power board) , the\015\012battery won't charge if this damaged or loose which would explain the\015\012dead battery. The smell is probably caused by sparking on the loose\015\012power port. I wouldn't try to power it on anymore as you may damage it\015\012further. it is possible that the area around the power port is burntout\015\012therefore rendering the powerboard or mainboard useless but they are\015\012replaceable at a cost. If the laptop is still under warranty then you\015\012will need to take it back to where you brought it.
\015\012You will need to take it to an engineer to have it assessed unless you are able to make the repair yourself. Good luck hope this helps.

My Gateway 503 gr quit turning on. At first it chattered a little and then went dead. Now it won't even do that. The power supply has been replaced with a new one but no change. I need to see if the power switch is broken but where should I look next? The CMOS battery? HDD? A fuse?

Check the condensators. If there are not any blown condensators or leakage, keep the video card (or at least the one on board if any) and remove all the other cards, also the memory. Check the CPU with a known good motherboard. If the CPU is ok begin ... Gateway 503GR PC Desktop

Gateway Laptop The A/C adapter for this laptop went dead, I purchased another and in two weeks it died but before it did I could get it to charge by pulling the connector out of the back of the laptop a little and it would charge, but after a few times this stopped also. So I went and bought a universal adapter and tryed it without the battery because I thought maybe the battery was causing the A/C adapter to short out. Even with the univeral adapter the laptop would not power up. I stuck the ba

The power light blinks solid blue every four seconds or so (it?s off in-between). The screen is blank. None of the buttons on the side function (such as ?menu?).

As I was using my A31p, the screen went dead. I could still see that there was an image on the screen if I shone a flashlight on it. Also, the computer worked just fine with an external monitor. So I thought---OK, the inverter board is dead. So I got a new inverter, put it in---no change. So now I figure, the flourescent tube is dead. So I took the screen assembly out of one of my other A31p's and put that in---still no change. The new screen with the new inverter still behave as if the flouresc
