I guess you tried AC and battery and press the power button and see nothing on the screen. Do you see any lights in the front of the laptop or the side at all?
If you can relate what happen before your problem then I will have some useful info. in the meantime remove the memory and try one at the time that is if you can see any lights in the front of the PC.

Is there a docking station for my mt6840 gateway computer?

I do not believe there is a docking station for that model. But... Try pulling out the battery. Then plug in the power supply and see if you can get it to power on. If so wiggle the plug and see if it shuts off. If either if those are true, en you most likely need your DC Jack replaced. You would want to take it to a laptop repair shop. It is usually $20 for the part and around 1.5 - 2 hours labor for the repair. Requires pulling out the motherboard and desoldering the old jack. And soldering in a new one. No fun

I have a Gateway NV5207u and it will not boot up. It runs Windows 7 and I have been having a lot of problems with it getting internal errors, goes to blue screen with an error listed (hardware problem)...

Before you go that route, have you tried a hard restart? To do so, you need to disconnect the power cable to the unit, then, press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds, then, reconnect the power cord, and see if it will then power up. Good luck, because I know the pain of not having an operational computer.

I can't access the router's set up page. is online but even if i turn off the firewall i still couldn't get in the console page

Check your default gateway ip address by typing ipconfig on the command prompt. The gateway should be pointing to your router if not type ipconfig/release, then ipconfig/renew. Try to access the router

If the steps above does not resolved the issue. Reboot your router, then try to access it after.

Neef a manual on how to replace the keyboard for a Gateway M1631u

I couldn't find instruction on how to replace keyboard even on gateway website. Don't know why they don't offer one. However, I found this below link from youtube for you. It shows how to step to disassembly and repair gateway parts. It is very easy to replace keyboard. Just watch the video, and I am sure you can do it.

Other link is general information about the gateway keyboard for your model
Good luck. If you are satisfied with this answer, don't forget to give me a good rate.

I need areplacement keyboard...where do i get one

There's a company called Le River House selling one on eBay for $35 plus shipping. Here's the link to the sellers page. I couldn't immediately find one from an independent company but if you get stuck you could always order replacement parts direct from Gateway by clicking on this link.
