Re: Unable to turn on my labtop (gateway 7326GZ)...
The real button is under the button you see. You might be able to get the keyboard cover off. If it's not broken broken you could try to reseat it. The part unless you find a cheaper source is 149.00 (which frankly is ridiculous)

this might sound really silly but some laptops after a while get a glitch where they cant power down fully and go into sleep or hibernate adn i have seen it happen to people who do not allow the battery to completely drain occasionally, had a family members did this recently. Just to rule it out turn it on and shen you hear fans and see lights even with no desktop, press and hold on the power button 3-5 sec until it shuts itself down, then do a normal start when you can see no lights or hear any sounds. Good luck.
Turn on, hold F8 button down until boot menu appears. Download Norton Boot Recovry to disc from another computer. Install in ur CD/DVD drive. Boot ur computer. Or install ur operating system disc in cCD rom drive. Reboot computer, hold F2 button down, modify BIOS boot sequence so CD Rom in 1st boot device. Boot computer, repair or reinstall operating system.
friends ... i discovered a way that you can power on the dell studio 1535 easily ...
first of all you know the power button .. it's now working ( or stuck ) in the other side of the labtop, there's a wifi button, when the labtop is already shutten down, you can press it and it will give a light then shuts down the light in the button, that means that it gives power, now to complete the process you should know the touch button in the left side that means Dell MediaDirect ( touch control button of the dell studio ) ..
ok, Now, do exactly what i'm telling you :)
1- when the computer is shutten down, plz press the wifi detector button one press 2- it will give a light then shuts then gives light again for a longer time. 3- when giving the first light for a short time, do not wait, press the media touch button quickly, continuesly and separetly. it it doesn't work ... try it for many times tell you know when exactly to press the media touch button
then you'll see that the labtop starts as if it was in sleep :) thanks :)
You may turn off the computer using the power button, then turn it back on using the power button. Under normal circumstances, turning the computer off by pressing the power button is not the optimal choice. But under your circumstances, it is an acceptable option.
Your computer works fine. Its just a little plastic tab that has broken off of the power button. Bad design! The power button doesn't sit right about the power switch. The broken tab makes the switch. The button is directly about the LED light. You have to remove the power button panel (Your user manual will instruct you on that) and then you can rig something where the plast tab was or just remove the circuit board from the panel and just power it on with your finger on the circuit board. No risk of shock. Well it hasn't gotten me yet :o) There's only two screws that you have to remove from the back of the computer to remove the panel and keep in mind that the top hinge covers are part of the power button panel so you have to gently loosen those with a little screw driver as well.
