Gateway M-1625 Will Not Power Up?

\015 I was using the laptop fine... went to the store... came back... and it's not working...\015\012\015\012Battery is completely dead... \015\012\015\012... and it won't turn on with the ac adapter either...\015\012\015\012I already replaced the adapter... and it didn't help...\015\012\015\012Plugged it up, and it doesn't recognize any power source...\015\012\015\012The only light that it's giving me is a red one saying it's dead when the battery is attached...\015\012\015\012Computer is only a year old...\015\012\015\012I read somewhere that sometimes the power "intake" (whatever you call it that receives the ac adapter) could come loose on the inside of the computer causing the power not to work...\015\012\015\012... But i've spent over an hour unsrewing everything trying to figure out how to get inside it at that point since I'm very familiar with sodering... just to see if there are any loose wires...\015\012\015\012Can any one help out in any way? Suggest anything???\015

Answers :

When the AC adapter is plugged in, does it wiggle excessively if you try to wiggle it at the jack where it plugs into the notebook? If so, the power jack had become unsoldered from the main board. You would have to take the main board completely out to get to the solder pins, then resolder them with a LOW-WATTAGE soldering iron. If you think you were successful, lay a bead of epoxy between the jack and the main board on the three sides away from the connection hole. Let it dry for 24 hours, then put everything back together. A service maual would be useful, if you can get one.
