Hi there.
The battery maybe faulty, remove the battery and try it on AC power only, there are no fuses that can be replaced inside the laptop.
If the laptop boots up on AC turn it back off and reinsert the battery and try to boot again, if it does not boot up then there is a problem with the battery and you will need a new one.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

I was using laptop when it just shutdown. It will not power up on battery or cord. No lites in the front. Power cord is good and battery is fully charged.


Pull the power, then the battery, then the RAM. Wait 60 seconds. Replace them back in reverse order. If the laptop still will not boot up, you have to test your RAM or Motherboard for failures.

It could be realted to your faulty Battery.
Please remove the battery and connect the Power cable. Now switch on the laptop without battery (Make sure Power connector should be connected and switch ON).
Check whether its getting ON now or not.

I have a Gateway MX8711 Laptop and all of a sudden it powered off and even when I plugged in the power cord thinking that it may be the battery, it still will not power back on. What could be the problem?...


It should still run while plugged in dead battery or not. Depending on the age it may just have worn out. Power supply may be dead, that would be my guess.Most shops will charge a $70 fee to test it.

Certain years of brand new Gateways has a horrendous history of dying leading to a lot of "refurbished" machines being unleashed on the public.

My gateway mx8711 notebook shut down when I plugged in the power cord. The battery was charged but now it will not turn on with or without the power cord. Is there a fuse in the unit and how do I get to...


Seems like the Main power board is short circuit.And the cause was not the fuse, it's the unit, and maybe the power transistor, my suggestion is, take it to the expert, Service Center maybe or else to solve the problems.

hope it help you.

Gateway MX8711 ran hot. Now will not power up


It sounds like the laptop has had some sort of thermal problem. Do you use it in a dusty/dirty environment? Did the laptop blower fan seem louder than it normaly was in the past? Any number of things (including age) could cause a laptop's fan to stop/work ineffectually and cause it to overheat.

My MX8711 will not come on when I turn on the switch.


Your power adapter my be loose on the motherboard which would require soldering it back on.
To confirm if this is your problem plug your laptop in and press the cord in and press the power button continuously if it powers on thats your problem.
When pressing the cord in it may take a couple of different angles before you find the right one so press it in if that don't work press it in and lean on the left, then to the right, up, down etc.
I am experiencing this problem right now I have clamped my cord for a temporary fix.
