Question about Gateway MX8711 Notebook
I THINK IT MIGHT BE FAN AS GOT VERY HOT, 2DYS BEFORE, AND OR WAS TOLD IT C/BE THE POWER SWITCH WHICH IS ON THE MOTHERBOARD, SO NEED TO KNOW HOW MUCH TO REPLACE MOTHER BOARD OR THE FAN. HELP NEED THIS FIXED.
No No don't pay them $450, first of all there is no power supply inside a laptop like a desktop. The only power supply is the battery. So there is nothing Dell can do except charge you $600 to replace your motherboard which you will lose all your data anyway..lots of things could have happend with overheating, it does sound like the motherboard may have shorted out..and yes in this type of situation is where laptops are inferior to desktops they cannot be fixed for cheap. I run a small pc repair shop, if you do decide to get rid of it I'll be glad to give you $100 for it and you pay the shipping...I use desktops and laptops that no longer work for training on how to take them apart and what parts they have...so let me know...my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Good luck whatever you choose. Oh, if you do get another Dell, take a hard look at the Vostro line of computers. I only buy Dell and I got a Vostro 1310, it is solid as a rock and works smooth. They are also reasonalbly priced for upperclass laptops..take care let me know.
