Gateway 7330GZ wont boot

My laptop wont boot. It acts like it has no power. I shut it down last night as usual, no indication of a problem. Today it won't boot. Nothing happens when power button pressed, even for 10 and up to 30 seconds. I've removed the hard drive and battery and re-seated them. Nothing. I've tested the power supply from the outlet and it's getting juice. The plug LED is lit, but nothing else. Not a single sign of life. Any suggestions???? Thanks

    Thanks for your efforts, but I don't know anything about laptops.  I have no idea what an xp cd is and how in the world does one take a keyboard out of a laptop without irreparable damage?  I'm taking it to my brother-in-law tomorrow.  Thanks anyway.

    I just have experienced the exact same problem on the 7330gz. Light panel indicates power but it does'nt boot up. the computer is about 4 and half years old. A guy at my work suggests it could be the internal power supply. I guess i'll have to take it in.

Can someone provide me online recovery disk of gateway 7330gz


You must set the boot sequence of the system to cd/dvd rom first which will enable the system to look for booting files in the disc in the first instance.

In your case your system is booting direct from hard disk. Boot sequence can be changed ib the bios setup of your system.

In some laptop models the restore files can be accessed by pressing function keys while system starting.

Notebook Gateway 7330GZ won't boot


Hm...That sounds like either the motherboard is dying/dead or a device is (such as the hard drive). I would suggest removing one piece at a time and see if you can get past that screen. The most annoying would be if it is the DVD drive since it's probably the most difficult device to remove from the laptop. (If memory serves it involves removing a certain screw from the bottom and then getting under the keyboard so you can push it out).

Do you have a second stick of RAM installed? Mine died a while ago and caused real heck with my 7330GZ.

You might check and clean the keyboard connection to the motherboard. However, usually this indicates keyboard failure. It's most likely that you're have to replace the keyboard.
