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.

I'm not sure if this helps but if you are experiencing the same problem I was then a DC jack repair will not help ... take a look at my solution on my blog and see if it helps you

Push power button it lights up for 3second then shuts off what is wrong with it


Could be bad ac adapter or bad motherboard. Have seen lots of cases where the ac adapter was bad and the laptop no longer starts after the battery goes dead.

Never used this website but it hass all the gateway boards... do a google search with your laptop model number and add spare parts after it and see what comes up... I am talking about the full model number nit just MA7..

eg. my laptop is HP dv5. but the full model number id dv5-1160us.

so good luck

If display issue: connect an external monitor to see if any change.

Could be spyware - boot in Safe Mode (F8) - download, install and run SpyBot (spybot.com).

Good luck.

I have a gateway ma7 laptop and press power and get nothing


When the computer is off, unplug the power cord from the laptop and then plug it back in. See if the charge light (lightning bolt symbol next to the led) comes on or turns green/blue. If it doesn't your power supply may not be working, even if the light on the supply is on. Second is the battery may be damaged. Remove the battery and see if you can power on at all.
If it boots with only the cord, the battery is bad/shorted forcing shutdown.
