Question about Gateway M675 Notebook
BATTERY LED RED, STANDBY LED BLUE. WILL NOT POWER UP.
Try running your laptop with the battery charge cord in but take battery out. If that doesnt work then the charge cord or charging hole might be shot. is the charge cord feel loose? like if u sneeze could it easily fall out? I like using humor.. If you take battery out run it or try to run it with the charge cord in and plugged in. If it works then that means it's ur battery. I had my laptop in the shop it was running hot. I used to call it my clothes iron.. nice hot and flattened my clothes for me. And thats all it did. I took it to the shop cause it wouldnt charge up, turn on.. made a lil noise as it tried for a second to beam up. Repair couldnt figure it out due to the fact it didnt start. It got back to me only to work for me this time. Then I lost it again. ANd spent some money modifying it with a different motherboard. One that doesnt fit. Oh ya im on that one right now... doesnt seem to be much of a clothes iron any more. But it serves the purpose. If you can fix it with a new battery or a practically inexpensive new charge cord then great.

Its most probably a RAM gone bad. try taking out one of the ram modules and check to see which RAM slot or RAM module is acting up (mine was the ram slot 1 which suddenly stopped working). Or if your using pc3200 try replacing it with pc2700
also since u have opened up anyway try to do some cleaning
1. open up the fans and clean it- lots of dust and gunk in there
2. take off the cpu heatsink, clean it and put on a fresh coating of thermal paste
