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 GT5468 will not boot power light fan runs thats all


The power-supply must output several different voltages.
If it is partially broken, then only the power-lamp and the fan(s) will spin. Replace the power-supply

Gateway GT4010 boots then starts beeping and shuts off


First check your power supply section and check your power fan that is running properly. if ok then the suspected area is your processor section. please check it if its collar fan nor running properly then clean up or change that. and the other advice is please check your processor pin which are too tiny. be careful about these.

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.

Ijust replaced the cpu fan and now the computer won't boot - it just flashes the gateway logo


make sure that the power reqs for the fan are the same as one you replaced and make sure that the new fan is the same prong (3 or 4). Also make absolutely sure you plugged the new fan power supply inti the CPU fan slot

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.

NO BOOT


I believe you power supply is bad and needs changing,,
however try this first before changing the power supply
unplug your system.

1.) Open up the computer
2.) remove the memory
3.) Remove the mainboard battery 4e78012.jpg see the silver pin to the right> pull that ayaw from the battery and it will popout

4.) hit the power button 5 times
5.) put your memory and battery back in
6.) put your powercable back in and try booting it..

IF THAT FAILS,, REPLACE YOUR POWER SUPPLY.
