Question about Gateway MX6453 Notebook

1 Answer

Gateway notebook mx6453 died in the middle of using it

Thought I smelled a transformer type odor but wasn't sure. About an hour into use I heard a noise and it went dead.
I tryed to repower it but I only get a red flashing light in front. I have a weak connection between the power cord and insert on the computer. I have to wiggle it alot to get it on.

Where is the location of the wireless switch on Gateway mx6453?


Hi There,

Your notebook does not have a physical wireless switch. However, holding down the fn key (lower left of keyboard) and pressing the F2 key will turn your wireless on and off. Below is the link to your online Manual.

Gateway mx6453 thought I heard a snap and the comptuer went dead.


It sounds like you have a fault with the power port on the mainboard or power board (quite a few gateways have a separate power board) , the battery won't charge if this damaged or loose which would explain the dead battery. The smell is probably caused by sparking on the loose power port. I wouldn't try to power it on anymore as you may damage it further. it is possible that the area around the power port is burntout therefore rendering the powerboard or mainboard useless but they are replaceable at a cost. If the laptop is still under warranty then you will need to take it back to where you brought it.
You will need to take it to an engineer to have it assessed unless you are able to make the repair yourself. Good luck hope this helps.

Your RAM may be faulty or not making proper electrical connection.
Try reseating your RAM (memory module/s).
