The socket where the cord plugs into the back of the laptop gets wattered out and does not make a good connection when it gets this way. I suggest that not move it so much it kinda defeats the purpose of a laptop. though

Wondering if I need a new fan - it will only power on for about 5-10 seconds.

Hi. This symptom is more than just replacing the fan. You have to have the laptop checked for motherboard issues at your local computer service center. Good luck!

Hi, I have a 1.5 yr old gateway NV52 laptop that has stayed in sleep mode for two days...I've tried turning it off and cutting back on but it is still in sleep mode...please help

Hi aiomason.

Remove the AC cord and the battery from the notebook. Re-attach battery and AC cord and power up the notebook. This will clear the Ram memory and force the operating system to "Cold Boot", in other words start the operating system loading up from the beginning instead of resuming from Ram the last time it was active. This proceedure should restore your Gateway Notebook to normal operation. Post back your results and good luck.

Gateway laptop mx6437 turns on but won't boot


It migt be resolved by a power drain. Disconnect the AC adapter, takeout the battery, and press the power button for 30 secs. Put everything back again and try to turn it on.

If your Noterbook is still not turning on, then you might need a phillips screwdriver, or if its in warranty you might want to take it to Gateway technicians, as opening the notebook by urself might void the warranty.

** Before trying the steps below, disconnect the AC adapter and take out the battery.

Turn your notebook upside down, and look for bays, look for screws which has a rectangular comb like structure next to it, unscrew it and you will find RAM chips in there take it out and put it back in. Do this for all the chips you have in the notebook.

Put everything back again and your Notebook might be up and running, else there might be some hardware issues and you need to go to gateway or some local tech.

How to reformat my gateway ML6721 Notebook without the recovery disk

Read this link, it'll help you quite a bit! If you cannot get connected, just turn your pc on and keep pressing F10 until the system recovery option appears....

Otherwise You must boot either on/from USB DVD and using a third party boot disk, say UBCD, and use the "Tools" on that DVD or USB to format and do as you want.
