Re: my m275 does'nt even turn on

The first thing to check for a tablet not turning on is the small sliding "padlock" switch next to the power button. If your computer is off and this sliding switch gets accidentally slid into the padlocked position, your computer will act 100% post mortem.

I have made sure all sound devices are enabled and audio volumes are set correctly in the sound portion of control panel. All mutes are unchecked and I have uninstalled and reinstalled the correct sound...

I am having this same issue. I would appreciate it if someone who knows what this issue is and how to correct it would contact me and let me know what I need to do to fix it.

When I turn on M275 I get power light, hard drive

I have the same M275 tablet and was looking for a solution when I came across your post. I couldn't find a solution so I went over every nook and cranny of my tablet and found my hard drive was not completely pushed in. I pushed it in tried the power button again and it worked! I am shocked because my laptop has been down for a year now. I thought maybe it was a motherboard problem and it was junk. I'm so excited. Anyway all I can suggest is check that the hard drive on the right side is completely plugged/pushed in. I hope that works for you.

My Gateway m275 tablet will not charge or power up even with it plugged in

At least a 50% chance the power pin inside the computer has been damaged. Taking apart a laptop and getting it back together correctly is a tough job . . . .The part (the power pin) is not that expensive ($ 5-10) but the labor is expensive. If you don;t feel up to the task, have it fixed by a professional and after it''s fixed get a CRD (Cable Retention Device) to keep from damaging the pin a second time.

New m275

My guess is that they "can", but considering that this would not be a warranty repair, you'd probably end up paying WAY more than it's worth in labor and that's IF they'll even do it. They'll probably give you a hard time.
