Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Gateway mt6452. It's been a good machine and gone with me around the world. When I press the "on" button, it turns blue for a second, and then nothing. In the past few months, I would press the button 674238923 times (just kidding), and one random time it would start-up. Now, the machine won't come on at all. Any ideas? Bad switch?
Shut down the system, disconnect every thing you can possibly disconnect and remove the battery.
Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds. Reconnect A/C power and try to boot up.
If no change, remove the CD/DVD drive and if you feel comfortable, the hard drive. Reconnect power and try to turn on again.
If you still get nothing, check for any loose screws on the bottom of the case and snug them (DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN). Just finger tight so the screw is not turning loosely. Remove and reseat the RAM. If you get no power, remove the RAM and reconnect power to see if you get beeps from the system.
Let me know if you need to go further than this.
