Gateway mx3414 wont start, battery red lifgt flashes

Check the voltage to the power box with a volt meter. If it reads the exact current needed as labeled on the power control box you need to replace the battery instead. A dead cell is the most common problem causing this for your computer

Mx3414 gateway will not power up . two lights flash then nothing. with or without battery installed.

Hello there..

I had a similar problem some time ago, when i wanted to start my laptop, i could see the lights go on briefly and hear a click sound and then nothing. I tried taking out the battery and only using the power cable, still nothing.

I eventually descovered that it was my laptop's power supply which had given in. Not to expensive to buy. Hope this can help you.

Best regards

Gateway laptop mx3414-black screen cannot load windows

Try going into safe mode upon startup by hitting the F8 button. If it does then hit safe mode to get into your computer. Go to start>accessories>system tools>system restore. Follow the wizard to restore your computer to a date earlier than when you started having problems. Let me know if you have any problems or questions.

Gateway mx3414 startup problem

If you are not getting any display on any monitors it leads me to believe the display did in fact go bad. This happens with electronics and probably nothin you could have done but when you take it to your appointment make sure they get any info you need off the computer and put it on a cd or flash drive for you. Sorry I didn't have better news for you but now at least you get to go shopping for a new machine. :)

Toshiba P35-S611 will not come on.

Simplify -
1.swap between both sticks of ram.
2. remove hard drive (should be right on the bottom near the RAM cover.
3. Remove CD drive (usually just one screw on the bottom where the end of the drive would be)

If those dont help, then its likely a CPU or motherboard problem which would require a lot of disassembly of the system to check.
