In general, when trying to determine the value of an item, searching similar items for sale on Craigslist or eBay is a good start. However, when it comes to computers and resale value, it doesn't matter if it's a PC or a Mac, you will be disappointed. The average lifespan of a computer is 3-5 years. This is because most of us use our computers quite a bit, and the moving parts like hard drives and cooling fans wear out, as do electronic components on the circuit boards such as capacitors. Combine that with the rate at which computer technology is advancing, and by 2 years old, there are computers on the market that are twice as powerful as what you had for the same price you paid for it. End result: a computer that is nearly 10 years old is worth nothing in resale, and barely worthwhile to donate to charity. You best bet is to drop it off with your local electronics recycling depot.

Gateway laptop model# mx 6956 will not power on have new battery and charger all i get in 4 blinks from red light on front of computer

The blinking light means there is a fault, first think you can try is removing the battery and the power adapter and hold the power button down for at least 30 seconds, then reconnect the battery and the power and try turning it on.

If that doesn't work, then try taking the memory sticks out (should be behind a panel on the bottom of the laptop, held by a few small screws), then put them back in and try to start it up.

If neither of these things work, then there could be a more serious problem with the laptop that may require replacment of key components, which could be as expensive as buying a new laptop.

Would like to upgrade my motherboard. What are some compatible models for a gateway M305CRV


Unfortunately notebook PCs can't be upgraded like desktop PCs can. Each model can only use that specific motherboard. The full specs for your notebook can be found here: This shows that that board can use either a Celeron processor or a Pentium 4 Mobile processor, both need to be the 100mhz buss speed versions. If you have the Celeron model notebook you can gain a little speed by replacing the chip and going to the Pentium 4 chip but it still will not be up to current notebook speeds because of the 100mhz buss speed of the board. Your best bet would be sell the laptop and get a new one. You an catch one on sale at Office Depot, Staples or Best Buy for about $400. You should be able to sell your unit for $150-250 and then put what you were going to use for a motherboard and you will be about at the price of a new one.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

You can buy a used one on the web for $140-165 without monitor. I'd say about 1/2 of that is the value of your system if you can find a buyer.

You're best bet is putting it on Ebay with a reserve or starting bid, or you can finding a local shop that sells used computers and see if they will put it on consignment. They probably won't give near what it's worth, just for the simple fact of turning a profit. At my shop we offer about a third of the asking price, which is negoticable.

Gateway 450 ROG will run only on battery.

If it's still under warranty, it's definitely worth repairing. If not, get them to quote for the repair they say it needs before agreeing to it. If their quote is anything close to the current price, I would say it's not worth it.
