Question about Gateway MD2614u Notebook
Hello i just got a quick question on my gateway laptop md2614u my start button doesn't respond sometimes. i was wondering what is the best thing to put something underneath the start button on the laptop so i can turn it on easy. or something what whats that call rubber part over the push button underneath the cover panel thanx
It has been my experience that the switches that are used on a laptop motherboard are a switch called a membrane switch. This type of switch is made of a elastic cover over a spring assembly. The problem with these switches is that the spring or elastic cover do weaken over use and time. The only cure is to replace the switch. On a motherboard it is less expensive to replace the machine unless you have the technical ability to replace the switch it's self. And that may not be all. Some switch assemblies may have more then 5 switches in the assembly. They can be very difficult to repair. If a electronics repair shop in your area reputes it's self as a component level repair then it might be worth a try. Be advised that there probably will be a check out fee that is paid up front. We hope that this helps you.

There are two different memory modules for that series.You can determine which you need by the chipset for you machine.If you have a Via VN800 Chipset You need the 1024MB-DDR333, 333MHz, PC2700, 200p SODIMM, 2.5v. If you have the NVIDIA nForce 410 Chipset The you need the 1024MB-533MHz DDR2-533 PC2-4200, 200p SODIMM, 1.8v Hope this clears up your problem

If you power it on and get the light it means either two things:
1. It needs a minimal charge on the battery to power. ( havent seen this since the old Compaq/Apple stuff ) or
2. The motherboard is fried. ( Just diagnosed a HPDV6000r special edition with this beautiful computer, dead motherboard ).
What is the warranty like:
NOTE TO ALL STUDENTS: Buy New laptops in November, so the warranty comes up in October, after you know you need more computer or repairs!
