Gateway MT6451 Does not turn on

Gateway MT6451 When I press the power button it (the power button) lights up plus all the other lights but unit does not work, but you can hear the fan keep running on and off and the power button light keep pulsing, at the rate of the fans on and off action.I have removed the Hard drive, Optical drive, and memory one by one and the unit remains the same can anyone give any suggestions would be grateful. Same issue: The unit was left in standby for some time, and now when I power it on, the fans and hard drive spin up, but no video or startup beep.

I have tried removing the battery, hard drives, RAM, and even CPU, but nothing helps.

Probably the mainboard or flaky power supply.

I'd start by replacing the power supply. Buy one you can use in a new machine, though... or "borrow" one from another machine.

Gateway computer power light flashes before booting up.


Hmm. I wouldn't have thought it had anything to do with pressing the button. It sounds more like a failing power supply or lack of current for startup. Did you make sure you plugged the power into the video card power connector (if it has one)? I know it worked ok at first but a heavier load can cause older or under-rated power supplies to fail soon after. Just a thought.

Power button


Check:

1. Power Supply Unit (PSU), big box that you plug your black power cable into
2. If you swapped PSU and still no power on, then your Motherboard is fried.

GT5220 won't turn on


My motherboard was replaced twice by the gateway people. Luckily I bought it at costco and it has a two year warranty through them because gateway didn't want to deal with me until costco techies made them. I have the same model and had the same problem

Have an MT6451. When I press the power button it will not turn on but the battery indicator light in front of the laptop flashes red every time I press the power button. I should also tell you that it did...


Gateway MT6451 laptop. That was easy but the rest is a guess without more details. It sounds like this computer is not plugged into an outlet or is not getting power from that outlet, and that the battery is dead low. Try plugging something else, like a lamp, into the very same outlet that the laptop is plugged into to make sure it turns on. Not the next plug over on a power strip, but the very same plug. If it doesn't get power either, there's hope. Except that your battery needs a good recharge after the laptop starts getting power.
If the outlet turned out to be good, then the power adapter on your laptop may have failed. At this point you'll need try another power adapter and try again. At this point you may need the help of people who can look at the computer for you, preferably friends with a similiar laptop (and power adapter).
I wish I could help more, but thats a start.
