Question about Gateway (4000274) Motherboard
I took my laptop in to get looked at because I was getting absolutely no power. The battery was fine and so was the ac adapter. They tell me its the mother board. Because I don't know a blessed thing about it I am not sure if I being told this is the problem so that I can replace it. They said that it would be cheaper to replace the whole laptop than to replace the mother board. What should I do?
If you know someone who has the same laptop, try testing your battery and adapter on that laptop just to make sure that they are working fine. If not, it might be a motherboard issue and replacing a laptop motherboard would cost a lot.
If you have a geek friend, ask him/her to use the multimeter to check that the power supply is delivering the correct voltage to the motherboard.
If you dont, try to get another opinion from another place to check if they say it's the same problem.
