Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a Gateway MOdel W730-K8X laptop. The power comes on because I can see the lights on the front. But when I push the power button, it seems stuck or wont respond. I need to open the laptop to see if there is something I can repair myself. I have never opened a laptop before and I am not sure even where to start.

If you go to gateways website, they should have information about how to open it, or it should give some information in the manual.

Sounds exactly like a failing power supply. Hopefully you bought an extended warranty when you purchased the computer. You should look into having the PSU replaced.

i think you should replace the power supply or try another different just in case to be sure that theres nothing wrong...some times the computer doesnt come because of change in cmos configuration, clear cmos could help..if you dont have any experience doing it dont do it..and ask in fixya .com

Gateway 5056 Media center doesn't boot everytime.


did you look on gateways website for a bios update. the firmware on your motherboard maybe corrupt. go here and check since I dont have your serial number... gateway has a java based scanner that might be able to repair it for you

Gateway 500xl pc will not turn on power button is lit up yellow


A LOT of Gateway computers will go into this catatonic state because of a dead battery. The battery is on the motherboard -- it looks like a metal disk about 1" in diamter. Check it or replace it. This applies to laptops too (not the actual laptop battery, the CMOS battery -- a laptop will have one on the motherboard too)

Hope this helps

Wireless does not work


There are dozens of possibilities. We need details. Desktop or laptop? Has it ever worked? Make and model of wireless router? *What* doesn't work - what happens? Be exact. "Something like" is no information at all when it comes to computers.
