Question about Gateway MT6707 Notebook PC

1 Answer

Fan Died on my Gateway MT-6707

Computer would not power up, so I checked the power plug and no result.
I then put the batter in and it booted up. I took the battery out and was able to boot it up, until I picked up the computer and it dies instantly.
When is was working I noticed that the fan was not operating.

So... is there a problem with the AC power connector on the computer... and have you heard of the fan not working?

Over time will the fan quit funntioning if too much heat builds up?
Is there a part of the circuit that will "kill" the fan if there is a problem with the AC power?

Thanks...

Fans can die without any reason that's possible and because of that your laptop is shutting down due to overheating because the processor isn't being cooled so you may need a new fan (but test the pin if there is any voltage there). it could be the motherboard not giving any power to it.

you may also have a problem with the DC socket not charging your laptop thats easy to test, plug the charger into the laptop with the battery and without switching it see if there is an amber light that shows the ac is fine.

Gateway MS2274 Laptop has a black screen and not booting. The power indicator comes on and all you hear is the fan and soon afterward will shut off; no hard drive LED. Tried removing the battery and...


Sounds like a severe hardware problem concerning your laptop's hard drive. I suggest you contact Gateway customer service to check on your warranty - your laptop is, simply put, broken. The best approach to repairing it is not to fix it yourself in this case.

Gateway MT 3422 problem


There has been a lot of problems/ complaints about this particular product. That is why I always recommend HP notebooks.

You can take it to a service centre where they deal in Gateway products but I bet you might need to replace your motherboard.

Good luck.

Gateway MX3231 won't boot and I just bought a new power adapter


Based on what you have stated, it looks to be your AC connector that is loose or broken from the motherboard. This connector just needs to be soldered back onto the motherboard. Have a technician look at this before you start spending money on a new battery.
