If you have a volt meter you can see if the computer is putting out power to the fan, also you should
be able to test the fan on an external power supply, if you dont know the fans voltage start off at 5vdc
, most fans are 5 to 12 volts. Hope this helps

Gateway laptop won't come on


Here below are possible causes and troubleshooting steps of laptop that can't power on, hope it may help:
Possible causes:

1. AC adapter failure.
2. Power jack failure.
3. Motherboard failure.

Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solutions:
1. Test the AC adapter with a digital multimeter. It's possible that you have a failed AC adapter. If you don't have a multimeter, test your laptop with another known good AC adapter.

2.It's possible that power jack (socket where you plug the AC adapter) is broken. Remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. In some cases you can fix the jack by resoldering it on the motherboard. In other cases you have to replace the jack with a new one. Using a multimeter, test if the power goes to the motherboard through the jack.

3. If replacing the AC power adapter and jack on the motherboard doesn't help, most likely you have a bad motherboard. Replace the motherboard.

What is the maximum memory capacity for the MX6027 model ?


Hello Marc,

The maximum is 1 GB. Standard, it comes installed with 256 MB but you upgrade with additional 256 MB or 512 MB memory modules. The modules you are looking for are:

256 MB DDR (1 x 256 MB) SODIMM (PC2700) 2.5v SYNC
512 MB DDR (1 x 256 MB) SODIMM (PC2700) 2.5v SYNC

There are lots of places on the web to find decent prices for this memory. I have included a few below.

http://www.pcmemorystore.com/Gateway-M_Series_Notebooks-MX6027-ram.htm

http://www.computermemoryoutlet.com/Gateway-M_Series_Notebooks-MX6030-memory.htm

This document includes instructions for replacing the memory. It's a simple straightforward process.

If the single memory modules you installed worked in the same slot, then the second slot might either be defective or need to be cleaned.

I am trying to reload my computer and about 10 minutes into the recovery process it shuts down. I have replace the fan, the hard drive, the battery, the keyboard, the power cord, and memory. Why does it...


90% of the time shutdowns are related to heat problems in the CPU or GPU (Video). The laptop will shutdown to avoid damage. Verify the cooling fins on your heat sink are not clogged as an external cooling fan will not correct this problem. If the fan is running test with a strip of tissue or candle and verify you have air circulation.
If you are certain temperature is not an issue, the next step is to insure you are not having hardware related errors.
You should always start with a completely charged battery and also have your adapter plugged connected.
Finally be sure you are using the original recovery software (incorrect licensing will abort the recovery process).

Does the AC adapter get hot if you use it to power the notebook with the main battery removed? If not, the battery or internal charging board may be faulty/

Overheating


Overheating is a big issue with Gateway. It mostly involves problems with the fan. When Gateway receives a warranty fan problem they replace it with a fan that is reconditioned or rebuilt (probably from another cutomer's unit like yours) and they don't seem to last long. To make sure it is a fan problem, which is the most common, Turn on the laptop and wait to see if the fan is turning on. It won't take long, processors get hot quick. The fan should turn on and run anywhere from 3 to 15 seconds then turn off. It should do this approx every 5 to 7 minutes in order to keep the processor cool. If it doesn't work at all, works seeming sporadically, or the processor gets really hot before the fan starts, then it's a fan problem, and a NEW fan should be purchased. If the fan works properly, then it could be that the fan and heat sink need to be cleaned internally due to dust build up.
