Sounds like you have a bad motherboard. Bad mother boards give alot of different signs and 1 is no screen display. If it was a a bad HD you would still see something on the screen

Gateway laptop mx6447 keeps rebooting once the windows screen comes up. Wont allow safe mode either


the most common is that your heat sink is full of dust, so the air blowed from the cooler can't pass through so can't cool the processor ( I'm sure that's it) Please, find a manual how to dismantle and clean the heat sink.
hope this works for you ...

cheers

Lights on, no display, doesn't boot


had similar problem on sony vaio. when power depressed, i could hear the cd drive turn a bit, the hard drive light blink once, and that's it. power light would remain on, but nothing else. I took it apart and resoldered all the main chasis grounds on the motherboard and shorted/resetted the board battery(memory/clock) and put everything back together and started up fine. got lucky i guess.

Check the battery
Check the power supply
Check the fuse in plug.

If all good then you should be able to start....ooops press the on button..sorry but sometimes the most obvious is the easiest to overlook..
If no life at all from laptop ie no beeps or other noises then your guess is good MOBO dead

Mx6447 has no power


Mine wouldn't stay on - press the power button and the lights would flash for a sec, then it would go dead. I removed the fan/heatsink assembly, the CPU, and the memory (2 SODIMMs). I then resocketed the CPU, replaced the fan/heatsink assembly, being careful to tighten the assembly evenly and gradually onto the CPU. I'm not sure why, but it works now!

Gateway MX6447 Not Charging Correctly


probably the connector on the motherboard has come loose. i have had to solder a couple connectors back on and it isnt really that hard to do, but that is probably the problem.

No power


I have 4 x gateway laptops all with the same fault.

They all work fine from battery but will not charge.

This is a common fault with them, I have been trying to get a copy of the motherboard wiring / circuit diagram.

Also I have traced the fault to possibly 6 components.

will post again with more info when available
