I have seen bad ram or loose ram cause the issue. Re-seat the ram.

The power button in my Gateway laptop MT6451 got pushed it can't be accessed from the top. How can it be accessed from the button?


Quite easily Sergio

The plastic Power On button you see, presses against a carbon button Power On switch, below it.

I suggest removing the Switch Cover, and then you can access the Power On switch's carbon button, and press it down to turn the laptop on.

You can also, then see about repairing the Power On button assembly, or replace the Switch Cover.

1) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter {Charger}, and Battery.

2) Laptop closed, laid on it's top; Bottom side up.
Turn it so you are looking down in the Battery Compartment, where the Battery was......

Down in the Battery Compartment are 4 Philips head screws to remove. You need the smaller No.1 Philips screwdriver, or the equivalent Jewelers screwdriver.

Here is the Base Enclosure, (Bottom Cover), not installed on the laptop,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/39MA7BATA10-Gateway-MA3-MT6451-Bottom-Case-Cover-39MA7BATA10-Genuine-/321101430142?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4ac322fd7e

There are 4 views. The page automatically opens, with a Bottom view, and the Battery Compartment at the top.

SET, your mouse cursor in the middle of the photo. This allows the Zoom In feature.
Go to the top where the Battery Compartment is, and view the 4 holes going along the Top.

This shows you where the 4 screws to be removed are.

Same design, different Gateway notebook,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-keyboard-from-gateway-mt6704-model-ma7/

Go to the third photo down. Has two screws circled in Red.
I just want you to look at the Battery Compartment. (Not the red circled screws)

Look under the whitish - www.InsideMyLaptop.com -
You can see the first two screws pretty visibly. Almost make out the 3rd one, no to the 4th screw.

Once these 4 screws are removed, turn the laptop over.
Open the laptop.

Now you are going to remove the Switch Cover.

In the above link scroll down to the 5th photo, and 6th photo.

This video also shows you,

From 0:45 to 0:47
Please use care when removing, it is plastic.
The video has been sped up.

This is a look at the Switch Cover removed,

Gateway MT6451 When I press the power button it (the power button) lights up plus all the other lights but unit does not work, but you can hear the fan keep running on and off and the power button light...


Does the light associated with the hard drive flicker, stay on and then fade sometimes? If so - then the hard drive is working and the likely problem is a faulty screen. You can also try the function key plus whatever F key would increase screen brightness. (i.e. Fn + F7 on my machine.)

Need destructive recovery. I need to restore this unit to factory settings. I would like to know if it has a redovery partition.


When you power on the laptop press F11 every few seconds. That's usually to boot to recovery partition. You'll have different format options to destroy data, etc.

MT6451 Display will not work.


Hello

It sounds like your AC cord or the female plugin soldered onto the motherboard has gone bad and will no longer make a connection to charge the battery or power the laptop on.

You would have to try a new power cord to find out which is the problem. If the cord fixes it, then it was just a bad cord (as you said it gets very hot, this maybe a sign of a cheap cord that has gone defective).

If the cord is not to blame, then the female plugin is loose and there is little you can do unless your an expert at soldering.

Post back with anymore questions or comments for additional help. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

No powerup


Unfortunately, you can't solve this problem. What I have learned as the tech working on a customers gateway mt6451 is that Gateway dropped the ball when they bought a cheap (they spent 5 cents instead of 20 cents) motherboard component that allows the adapter to charge battery and run the notebook without the battery installed, the component seems to have a 1 year if that life. I am surprised they haven't been sued or forced to extend the warranty (like HP had to with their dv8000 series notebooks) althought they would have to replace the motherboard with one that has an improved component on it. How do you sue a company or force them to extend the warranty for a replacement that is made with a better component?

Gateway MT6451 Does not turn on


leaving your unit in standby mode is not a problem as long as your ac adapter is plugged in to your ac outlet and to your pc. otherwise, you will have a drained battery. try removing your battery for a few minutes and then insert it back in then plug your ac adapter to your wall outlet and to your pc and leave it without starting your pc. notice the small pilot light at front edge of your laptop, it should be yellowish/orange. wait until this light turns green then you can try turning on your pc.
