Question about Gateway NMZ-500SE Notebook
I am trying to fix a Gateway 500SE that won't boot up. The front panel and mobo lights come on and the cpu and psu fans come on. The CD Rom is also getting power. All I get is a black screen. I checked all connection, tried different ram in different slots. I also used a multimeter to check the psu and it was fine. I next used a post card. It came up with a C7 error. It is a Phoenix mobo I think. It says Initialize note dock late. I have looked and looked on Google and can't find what this means. I am really stumped. My friend is depending on me and I have already spent my own money on memory. If you can shed some light on this, I would surely appreciate it. Thanks. Lisa
Does the mobo have integrated graphics? If so, you may want to try installing a new graphics card and disabling the onboard. I had the same problem with an eMachines. When I installed the AGP card, it worked just fine.

All I can tell you is that something is wrong with the motherboard, it's not memory or anything. Everybody else I've seen with that problem has replaced the motherboard and fixed the problem.
Please rate, thanks!
