Having problems with your Gateway MX8734 Notebook ?

I have the same problem with mine no power

\015 I even bought a new cord the light on the pc will not come on HELP?\015

Answers :

I have an MX8734 and it died on me. I have 3 batteries and 2 power adapters but there is a bigger problem at work here!
\015\012
\015\012These computers (almost all gateways) have a big power supply plug (connected to motherboard) defect. They are a $6 part but the moboards are $400!
\015\012
\015\012You can send it to a computer repair shop but beware,,, as some don't know how to fix plug and will tell you its the motherboard. Because its a defect it can happen again after repair. Gateway doesn not repair units anymore as acer bought them and a 3rd party is doing warranties (or not doing them from what I hear).
\015\012
\015\012If I was you I would: A) Have a shop that can fix plug do it.
\015\012B) Put it on Ebay for parts (worth about $200),
\015\012C) Have a real expensive (but satisfying) target at the ol range.
