This mostly happens when your motherboard is bad or one of the memory modules is bad.

The led light comming on indicates your power pack is ok but a component is failing to start especially when the laptop stops at the first screen stage where the manufacturer names appears.

The steps needed to solve this kind of problem would require technical skills and physical inspection.

If you still have a waranty period then seek a free service repair from an authorized or certified gateway service centre at the nearest centre closest to you.

If your warranty has expired, i still advise taking your Laptop to the closest Gateway service centre.

SOURCE: gateway MT 3422 problem

There has been a lot of problems/ complaints about this particular product. That is why I always recommend HP notebooks.

You can take it to a service centre where they deal in Gateway products but I bet you might need to replace your motherboard.

Good luck.

Re Boot


Try disconnecting everything from teh system. turn off the system. Take the battery out and unplug the Power cable. Leave it that way for 5 minutes and then hold the Power button for 1 min and then connect the battery to the system only. and try turning it on.


Hope this Help.
Cheers!!!

Screen isnt booting up, laptop opens all the way- broken?


The computer will not work without a hard drive.

Most laptops screens will go all the way back.
