Question about Gateway MT3705 Notebook
I bought my refurbised Gateway 7 months ago, it went out no lights, acts like no power. Check the battery full charged, power cord has power at the end
You don't specify model, so what follows is fairly generic. If you can provide more details, perhaps I can too.
If it's booting (start-up chimes/sounds), then I'd suspect the display (either the back-light, or perhaps the inverter/controller circuit board). Backlights require (in my experience) replacement of the display, likely more than the value of the laptop if it was a refurb (~$500 and up in my exp.). Inverter boards are less spendy, but you have to get the right one, and get it installed (how tech-savvy are you?)
If it's not booting at all, (don't hear the hard drive spooling up, etc), then we start looking at power supply issues and go from there. But I really need more details.
If I can be of further assistance, let me know, and include as much detail as possible (you should be able to load digital pictures onto this space using the toolbar above).
If this solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.
Thanks in-advance for using Fixya.com,
