Hello Howard,
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.

SOURCE: My gateway laptop will not turn on when you push power button.

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!

I would remove the heatsink and fan, clean the processor surfaces with methylated spirit or isopropanol, use new heatsink compound and that should fix your issue. Yes yes, heatsink pipe should get hot!

Hello sir i have gateway model md2614u .when i charge my battry and when it aharged full screen seen black but it shows power by red ight and it give no response.

A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective.
