To test the powe supply open the case and use one of the open plugs. Hook a volt meter up and check it is putting out the listed power on the back of the power supply. the first easiest check is look at the fan in the power supply and see if it spins when you turn the machine on

Did the service tech actually look at the computer? I don't know how anyone could make this diagnosis without doing some testing. It could be the motherboard but it could be something else too. I would first suspect the power supply. They frequently go bad. Test that.

A techie told me that the reason my Gateway 7330GZ notebook will not power on is a faulty power distribution IC on the motherboard. The part is impossible to find in my part of the globe (Nairobi, Kenya)...


You need to replace the motherboard. This may not be a cost effective solution.
It may be better to put your money towards a new laptop which will be faster and most likely slightly more than the cost of repairing the Gateway.
You can remove the hard disk from the Gateway and put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and then use it as an external USB hard drive for backups and data transfer.

Gateway computer 310 series wont power up when


It sounds to me like the power switch is plugged into the motherboard incorrectly. I would need to know the type of motherboard you have to get you the proper schematic for hooking up the power switch and reset switch to the board. If you have the manual to the motherboard, there should be a detailed picture showing you how it is to be hooked up. Please let me know the motherboard model for further assistance.

Good Luck,

Fujitsu n6210 - no power. Got new ac adapter and nothing lights up. No noticeable event prior to dieing. Worked fine when I shut it down. The front panel on the front edge was lit showing that power was...


Hi,
As far as i know Fujitsu have not released a service manual outside of their own certified tech centers.
I'm afraid it's going to be trial and error for you at this point. Seeing as you are a tech for Gateway and Dell you should be fairly familiar with computers and their components.

Disassembling a laptop is fairly easy apart from the amount of screws that they have.
Once you have the base split and got to the motherboard, troubleshooting it will be a breeze as all the major components are on the motherboard, this includes the plug adapter which you think maybe faulty.
Just remember to take note of where certain screws, ribbon cables and connector plugs connect to.


Good luck.

No power


Just open ur P.C cabinate and look when the Power supply is on in ur mother board then there is a green light in ur Mother board ; is it on ??
If the LED is on then I hope ur mother board is ok yet.
Then I think there is some connection prob on the pushing button on the cabinate.
Check it if it is not then u have to replace ur mother board.

Computer is dead will not turn on


When you buy a new motherboard, make sure and get one that accepts the same processor and memory, and video card that you have now. It is not terribly complicated to replace the motherboard but if you have never done it before be prepared to spend a few hours reinstalling your operating system and all the correct drivers for the new motherboard components. Also make sure you get a board that will fit in your computer case, not all boards are the same size.

My gateway 700 xl doesnt boot


Unplug the power from you 700xl and from you monitor. Try removing the cmos battery and reinstalling it. Then, plug everything back in and try restarting. If it continues to give you the yellow light, you may need to replace the CMOS battery, especially if it is more than two years old.

Another thing to consider is if your power supply is underpowered for the number of external devices you have plugged into it (i.e., cd, dvd, external hard drives, printers, pci cards, etc). Gateway installed very low powered power supplies in their 700xl desktop computers. Usually only around 250 watts maximum.

If you are replacing the power supply with another 250 watt maximum power supply, and you have a lot of external devices plugged in, you may need at least a 350 watt power supply....if your CMOS battery is not the problem.
