Having problems with your Gateway M350 Notebook ?
Laptop keeps beeping and not turning on
\015 When i push the power button in my laptop it starts beeping with the "floppy disk" logo light on close to the power button. nothing appears on the screen and it keeps beeping\015
I think you may mean the Hard Disk light not floppy, although, if you have a floppy disc drive, check there's no floppy disc in it as it will stop the boot up.\015\012\015\012But if it's not the floppy, and the hard disc drive light stays on, possibly the hard drive is faulty, maybe damaged sectors.\015\012\015\012The other maybe is a possible memory fault, although the beep codes can only be identified if you know the motherboard make.\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Your rating are important.
