Question about Computers & Internet
Gateway MA7 laptop will not power on at all. No lights, nothing
Gateway MA7s have dodgy DC sockets. Poor solder joint on +ve pin = increased resistance = lots of heat = burnt PCB around +ve pin usually shorting the +ve pin straight to ground. If you're lucky you might still be at the poor solder joint stage and the DC socket might simply need replacing and/or re-soldering. If not, it could be a burnt PCB and it's a pain to bypass the burnt areas due to how the power gets distributed around the PCB.
