Your computer works fine. Its just a little plastic tab that has broken off of the power button. Bad design! The power button doesn't sit right about the power switch. The broken tab makes the switch. The button is directly about the LED light. You have to remove the power button panel (Your user manual will instruct you on that) and then you can rig something where the plast tab was or just remove the circuit board from the panel and just power it on with your finger on the circuit board. No risk of shock. Well it hasn't gotten me yet :o) There's only two screws that you have to remove from the back of the computer to remove the panel and keep in mind that the top hinge covers are part of the power button panel so you have to gently loosen those with a little screw driver as well.

    I ended up getting some Loctite Super Glue Ultra Control Gel and glued the plast tab back onto the power button. I let it cure over night. Its holding up so far and working great. Good luck

Gateway ne71b win 8 wireless won't turn on


Similar to another posted wireless issue found in a Gateway NE71B, I offer the same solution.

Check your BIOS version by entering the BIOS. As the Gateway logo appears after turning on the power, press either F1 or F2. You should get into the BIOS. Look for the current version. If the version is earlier than version 2.13, you will want to update the BIOS.

Gateway M 6843 won't turn on


You may have already done this, but remember many laptops require that you remove the battery for about 30 sec. as
well as disconnect the AC power to reset them.
Always try this when everything appears completely dead.
