Gateway T-1625 media buttons won't lid, (should they?)
Only the main button with that activates windows vista media did light up in two occasions (just received the computer form eBay). It won't anymore, I am not sure if it's because I messed with the power options. However, something tells me the rest, FF, FW. Stop buttons should also light up when pressed and none does. Help please, can't find any info on it in Gateway's website.

If u can, try to reformat it, reason i say this simple solution is
because u already had the laptop looked at professionally, and due to
you're laptop being stuck at the windows screen, i see this happen on
HDD swaps a lot. The HDD needs to be repair-formatted or fully
reformatted to talk to the new mobo when switched out, try this if all
else fails, i personally think giving this simple solution may fix the boot up issue, but do make sure ur friend who looked at your laptop hadn't reset ur C MOS and may of not reconfigured it, this may also be
the main cause of boot up troubles so make sure everything looks fine in
ur BIOS. Gabriel will have a more proper solution than this but i
believe by doing this it may help u bypass ur loading issue
I bet that the video card on the motherboard is using some of your main memory. As for the cpu driver I would go to the device manager and revert back to last driver or use a utillity like Uniblue's DriverScaner.
It sounds like a motherboard issue. The fan spinning and the LED lights are running off of battery power. This indicates that power is getting to the system. You should look into replacing the motherboard at this point. Before you replace the motherboard feel your system to see if there are any really hot spots that would indicate overheating. If not proceed with the replacement. If so, let me know where the hot spot is.
