Question about Gateway P-7801u NoteBook Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 17.0' Wide UXGA 4GB Memory DDR3 1066 320GB ...

1 Answer

My p-7901U FX made a popping sound, turned off completely (crashed) and now won't turn on. After unplugging everything from the laptop and wall sockets, I plugged the power adapter into the wall

I also tried the reverse order of plugging the adapter into the laptop first, then wall socket with no change in outcome.

take out the battery, then take out the memory. Put one of the two memory modules back in, and turn it on. If everything looks ok, shut down and put the other one back and try again...if everything is ok...then ok. If it doesn't work after the first one, let me know...

Laptop Fan and Power Indicator won't turn off.


Are you sure you are turning it off completely. Sounds like you have it sleeping or hibernating. Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds or so, it should power off completely.

Computer ramdomly turns off


Instead of unplugging everything, only unplug 1/2 of the things. If it still won't start, unplug 1/2 of the remaining things (noting which ones they are). If it restarts then, it was one of the last set of things you removed that is the problem, so keep eliminating possibilities in this fashion this until you can determine which component it was. If it turns out to be the power cord, it could be a problem with the power supply.

Won't turn off


Unplug it directly from the wall & if it still wont turn off then you'll need to find the portal to the Otherside and go there and unplug the poltergeist version of your TV from the wall as well. This should fix it.

Acer aspire 1710 msi laptop makes popping sound when turned on won't start


Popping sounds are bad. Usually shorting electrical somewhere. Is the light on the power brick green? flashing? Red?
It's either a bad power brick or a bad connection in the laptop. You can buy a power brick fairly cheap, but if its out of warranty and the problem is not in the brick its probably not worth it to fix.
