You have three options. 

  1. Disassemble the laptop and remove the cmos battery and put it back in.
  2. Reinstall windows, put your windows CD in the drive and restart your computer. ( all data well be lost)
  3. Take it to a shop, for $20 they reset it for you

SOURCE: Have a gateway M465-E with power issues. Low

If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, until they won't charge up at all.
Check power adapter’s DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. I suggest you get a quote first.

SOURCE: will any wireless mouse work with my gateway

One way to know, try it, but keep the receipt in case it doesn't work. Most mice should work, but only someone who's tested every mouse on every make computer would know the answer to this question.

M465-e has flashing blue light wont startup


Try removing the battery and disconnecting the power for a minute or so. Then re-install the battery and power cord and try booting it up again. If that doesn't work I'm afraid it's probably an issue with the motherboard.

If in the unfortunate event the motherboard needs to be replaced, here are the instructions:
http://www.ehow.com/how_7498700_remove-motherboard-gateway-m465e-laptop.html

Looks like boards range between $100 - $200
If it's not something you want to tackle yourself, expect labor to be about $100. Consider the age of the laptop and the cost of about $200-$300...some newer laptops can be had for that amount. (Especially with Black Friday sales going on.) Check microcenter.com

M465-E will not turn on


Simply your RAM or mother board is faulty. Replacing RAM is cheap but repairing Mother board modules is an expensive affair.
