Have Gateway M6866 Laptop. Will not boot. when power button is pressed. you hear a fan start power light comes on, harddrive light and a few others comes on for 2 seconds then goes off. screen is always...


If it never posts anything to the screen then more than likely you've got a video card issue. It could be the memory also.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the cover that houses the memory on the bottom of the laptop then remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

MY LAPTOP GOES TO THIS BLUE SCREEN THEN SHUTS DOWN WHY DOES IT DO THIS


Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Error screen comes up after start up.


Must have been the guys in the blue shirts....Blue screen issues are normally caused by memory problems. If you are somewhat computer savy and know how to add or remove memory, try this. Take out one the memory chips, see if you get the blue screen any more. Then swap and do the same test on the other chip. If one has the issue and the other does not, replace the suspected bad chip.

Hope this helps.

p.s. If the computer is still under Samsungs warrenty (1year), contact them directly, you will have better luck with repairs than where you purchased the computer from.

When turning the laptop on, it's not booting up. The screen is black and the green light stays solid, though I can hear the fan.


First thing you should try is:

reseat the memory chips (try booting just one single chip in one slot, if that doesn't work switch the module to the other slot)

Also I'd recommend booting without battery pack installed.

Let me know what happens or if anything changes with the above.

Blue screen of death comes up then the netbook turns off


This article may help you....or these.
If you can turn off the auto restart to get a stop error code from the blue screen, that will help you to diagnose this error. See 'disabling restart..." here. Then reboot and note the exact error code reported. Write back with that info and we'll help you to sort it out.
You can look up codes here.

Screen goes blank and black


Hi,
This can be due to many factors..

try the following steps..

1. Disconnect the battery and the ac adapter and hold down the power button for 2 Mins. This will drain the static.

2. reseat the memory chips..Its located at the back on the compartment that has an icon that looks line 2 square boxes beside each other. Try with one memory chip at a time.
also reseat the hard drive.

If it still does not work then you may have to get it repaired.

Hope this helps..
Regards,
Anup

Change the memory chip to another slot or swap two memory chips if you have two memory chips on both slots, see what happened and come back to me again.
