Flashing red light 3 times and won't boot. I recently recalibrated the battery and again the 3 flashing red lights. Seem to be draining the battery fast. It's also a new battery...which work for about 2 weeks before the 3 flashing red lights first started. Now 2 batteries later. It won't boot.
Check the fan vents... if they are clear of dust and lint. If there is some it may need a cleaning inside also.
Since the battery is light is "red" remove the battery. It could have been over heated or shorted outinside.
If it dont power up at all with only the AC adaptor (removing the battery) then try the reseting the "Reset" button under the unit.
Go to www.mundocorp.com. They sell Gateway Laptop repair parts. THey list the Stylus for about $44.00 US Which is a good deal. I paid $89 CDN for my replacement direct form Gateway whey they were still available there.
