I couldn't find a contact there either, nor could I find one for sale in about 40 sites. Being (older) technology, you could try another board with similar features.


for other boards that use your processor and ram.

Power light is lit, but there is no sound coming from the speakers , it was working fine and just stopped working ?

Its an PA amplifier and i think this is build with an integrated powerpack IC output stage,
There are different TOA amps but if this model look first the fuses if that are (important)measured defect give a new fuse a try if it blows again there is something wrong in the cables or a speaker conection or filter , ut if the fuses are good there could be an single great brown or black colored IC with STK (....)A or B or something similar is to read on it on the great heatsink inside the amplifier that could be having 15 or more legs must be replaced , BUT also some capacitors thats belong to the output stage because every defect is having a cause.
It think this amplifier IC should similar be looking like this

Screen goes dead after few seconds. Green light stays on. If I disconnect from pc it shows "signal lost"

You need to try another screen if it is possible. Sounds like the screen you are using is about ready to die. I had one that would do something similar to that. The backlighting on the monitor went bad. Would come on for a few seconds and then go dark. You could just about make out the pictures but could not read the words at all. Had to get a replacement.

Trying another screen first will tell you if it is really the screen or video card.

My w340ui gateway laptop will not turn on. I even took the battery out and went to the plug and the button wont make the computer turn on.

Underneath or on the bottom of the laptop near the battery is a reset button, you can use a pin or something similar and push it, that could possibly fix the issue with the power not turning on. Also if that does not work you could have a bad power supply or something similar.

Inspiron 1501 will not power from know good AC adapter.

Hi rogertooley,

I had a similar problem with two SONYs, it turned out on one there was a blown SMD fuse 4A, very near close by the DC power plug.

On the other the Power Management Board was bad and needed a replacement.

If you already went to the trouble of opening the laptop, see if you can locate a SMD fuse and check it. If there is none or if the fuse is ok, then see if you can locate the DC power management board and see if you can find a failed power mos on it.

Toshiba Satellite A75-s211, brigtness/contrast issues after install of ram

Make sure that you have solid A/C power. On battery alone, your power settings might be set to "maximum battery" which will really dim your screen.

Removing RAM properly will not affect your computer or LCD. It's similar to "I ran out of gas, so my tire went flat" has nothing to do with the other ...however, note that I said "properly" removed. If you used a metal object (like a screwdriver or similar device) to "help" remove the RAM, you might have shortcircuited the motherboard, video or a combination of the two.

You can narrow the problem down by connecting to an external monitor. If the video looks great on it, you have a bad LCD and should consider yourself lucky that's all it is. If the video is the same on the external, you did something to the motherboard which would warrant a replacement. At $200-$400 plus labor, that's not good.

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)

If the CPU is dead the problems can be
  1. no power
  2. no fans etc or
  3. power, no beeps (errors)
If the Ram is not compatible it would be constant beeping.

With the board in, and power supply 20pin + 4pin Pent 4 power attached,(#2 and #7 of motherboard layout) remove power cord from power supply.
CLRCMOS0 allows you to clear the data in CMOS. The data in CMOS includes
system setup information such as system password, date, time, and system
setup parameters. To clear and reset the system parameters to default setup,
please turn off the computer and unplug the power cord from the power
supply. After waiting for 15 seconds, use a jumper cap to short 2 pins on
CLRCMOS0 for 5 seconds. Remove the jumper. Remove heatsink and fan from CPU. disconnect cpu and reseat it. Re-install heatsink and fan. Plug in the power cord. Try to boot up. If it still does not boot and (no power, no fans etc.) problem would then be cpu is fried.

Maybe you missed something really simple. Below is the official link for your Gateway NX860. But, it doesn't talk about replacing motherboard or full disassembly. This may help if you missed something, like removing the optical drive fully out of the bay.

Yes, try replacing the power button assembly first and the heatsink assembly and fan before shelling out big bucks on a Mobo (which is probably pulled from another LT).
