\015\012If you are comfortable soldering and opening the laptop, then this is your day.
\015\012
\015\012I was fixing a Gateway Solo 1450 that shown only red light indicator. Push the power on botton and didn't respond. Did all sorts suggested reseating no availed. Here the solution I made:
\015\012
\015\0121. Go to Gateway website and look for taking out the keyboard. That's the only support I got as far as user/service manual I need.
\015\0122. Take the 5 silver philip screws and 4 black screws from the CPU heat sink. Take out the CD-ROM with one screw.
\015\0123. Take out the palm besel cover. Note, the screws while taking them out by drawing on the paper their location.
\015\0124. Take out the metal that covering the 5 bottons. Again draw the location of screws.
\015\0125. Take out the remaining screws from the motherboard.
\015\012
\015\012The main event.
\015\0121. Check the 3 soldered legs of the DC jack. If they are loose then Resolder them. If not still resolder them anyway.
\015\0122. I found out the Power botton was intermittent. So with a fine soldering tip (30 watts from Radioshack) and Soldering braid. Clear the soldering tip (pile it until no solder on it). With a steady hand use the braid each leg of the Power botton, then pull it with tweezer. Note the orientation is very important. Mark the front face of the power button. The good news you have 4 available switches to use. Next do the same to the last switch botton (a person icon from the dash board). I chose the last right botton. I switched their place.
\015\0123. Assemble the unit backward as you first disassembled it.
\015\0124. Check the memory. Use eraser from the pencil and rub the memory fine pins back and forth until they look shiny. Insert/reseat it/them.
\015\012
\015\012Hope this helps you. Good Luck.

Gateway 507GR Wont Power-On after a power surge.  Had slight hissing noise in the Bestec power supply, replaced it, and it still will not always power-on. If I switch the a/c power on/off really fast while holding the power button, it will fully power-on after a few minutes of toying with it (tricky). I removed the board and looked closely at the caps, but what should I be looking for in such case, pwr surge? This is a very common problem to the Intel E210882 MOBO. Any techs here familiar wit
