Question about Gateway MT3705 Notebook
Recently, I noticed that my Gateway laptop won't turn on...at all. I would just get a red blinking light, indicating that the battery has no power. I called Gateway and at this point, when I pressed the power button, absolutely nothing happened, not even a blinking red light. Gateway said that since I wasn't under warranty anymore, they would have to charge me $200 + to diagnose the issue. I said no thanks considering I can't even turn it on AT ALL to do anything. I took it to best buy where they took the battery out and plugged my adaptor into the wall, where absolutely nothing happened. They told my my computer is fried. When I took it home and didn't touch it for a few days, I noticed that now, plugging it in, it's giving me the same red blinking light when i go to turn on the power. When I go to take out the battery and still plug in the ac power adaptor into an outlet, i get absolutely NOTHING, not even a red blinking light. After explaining this to Gateway, they said it didnt' sound like the battery was the problem, that I quite possibly fried my computer. I bought a Mac and love it, but i'm just wondering if these people are right or my Gateway is salvageable.
These people are right and there is definitely some hardware issues with your computer...which can be repaired but not really worth the money or effort.
