Having problems with your Gateway 7510GX Notebook ?

Gateway 7510gx does not turn on. Replaced with new battery, no luck. PSU, I tested with a non contact voltage tester and tested ok.


Answers :

My initial guess is that you have a problem similar to an issue I experienced a while back.<br />Does the light below touchpad come on indicating the laptop is plugged in when it is plugged in? If so the problem may well be simply the power button itself. This strip can be removed fairly easily and the button examined for issues. <br />To remove the strip (I am guessing warranty is up since its an old model, if not probably best to leave it to repair center):<br />remove two screws from the bottom of the laptop:<br />The two to remove are the ones one the edge with the hinges in the center. (There are a total of 4 screws along this edge, ignore the ones on either left or right edges). <br />Next with lid closed, press against the back of the hinge covers in their centers and lift. Pressing the center will release a catch on each and u need to then pull this up. I get a little seperation then gently wedge a screwdriver under them to help lift and pull out the catch. <br />With both catches released, open the lid fully (to 180 degrees). Be careful during this step as the covers like to snap back in place, it it helpful to keep them wedged out of place with a screwdriver or something. <br />With lid open, u can now pry under the hinges to begin to remove the strip above keyboard that has the media buttons and Power button. Once u work the hinges loose the strip should come off easily, but if not there are two catches along the top edge of the strip near the media buttons, if you use a screw driver to gently press down (towards keyboard) on these latches they will release without breaking.<br />Now the last thing to do is to note that there is a ribbon from the mb connecting to the media and power buttons. Note the orientation of the ribbon then, release the grip by pulling up on the plastic retainer (brown in my laptop). note this wont come off but will slide out a little. With the plastic retainer slid out, the ribbon will come free. <br />You can now take the strip and work on it. Flip it upside down and you will see screws for the circuit board for the media buttons and the power button. <br />You can then run some tests to see if the power button is closing the circuit as needed to actually trigger power up. <br />I hope that's all it is and that this helps.<br /><br />
