SOURCE: Brand new battery & ac adapter not working on MX3702

If you've replaced both the battery and the ac adapter then the fault lies in the charging circuit of the motherboard and generally that is either a motherboard replacement or having the power connection on the motherboard by a service center, either way usually about $100

Is the Laptop Overheating? During intense game play your Laptop will Overheat if it's not getting sufficient air flow. Try cleaning the Fan, vents, heatsing with Compressed Air, Improve air flow through the Laptop, a Laptop Cooler is a option. Try shutting down unnecessary processes, I use freeware RAZER GAME BOOSTER, you configure what you want to shut down: http://www.razerzone.com/gamebooster Remember, Your machine usually shuts down for a good reason, it's trying to protect vital components. Overheating will fry the CPU, Graphics Adapter, etc.

Laptop gets warm near touchpad , shuts down


Sounds like it is overheating and then shutting down. Is the laptop on a hard surface or a lap or blanket? You need to have air circulation.

WIFE USING LAPTOP, SUDDENLY SAID SHUT DOWN ,screen went black, but power stays on and will not shut down


Most of the time when a laptop or a PC does that it is over heating.

If you noticed that the CPU fan is going real fast and the laptop is pretty warm its probably overheating due to dust getting inside by the fan.

If it is buy a can of compressed air at your local store at push the air the opposite way that it is comming out.

My laptop keeps shutting down at random times. I


Computers may not be smarter than people, but if they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage.

If the smart person keeps turning the notebook back on and figures out a way to foil the protection, the laptop is probably doomed. Once a laptop shuts down for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can figure out that its too hot.

The over-temperature protection is generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign of an overheated laptop is one that shuts itself down while you’re using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down.

Unless you’ve been working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the cooling system a serious cleaning.
Good luck

My Toshiba m205 4806 shuts down spontaneously. The lap top feels warm but the fan is running. any suggestions?


The cpu get overheated and will shtdown to protect it. The fan continues to run until a CPU safe temperature is reached / sustained.

1. Use laptop on flat surface, not on pillow, carpet, bed, etc. that will restrict air flow. Using a can of compressed air, clear the air vents.

2. If the symptom continues, then the heat conductive paste between the cpu chip and the heatsink is no longer effective (hardened, too thin, etc.). Remove the heatsink and add thermal paste

I have a MX3702 that will not boot into any device, after the gateway logo it comes to a blinking cursor, it happened after the bios update, i tried booting into CD, flash drive, still the same, please...


That blinking cursor is the way in which the BIOS is telling you that the OS is missing Since you get it even when trying to boot from the cd it means that the southbridge is defective. Replacing the motherboard will cost you as much as a new one so it's dead, buy another one.
