Question about Computers & Internet
I have a gateway laptop, and when I pus the power button, the power button lights up blue like normal, and 2 of the lights light up. (the wi-fi light, and one other) and all the lights stay on for about 3 seconds, and then tey fade off, and computer wont turn on, there is no noise from the computer like it is trying to boot, no fans or anyting. I have disconnected battery to try to turn on with just adapter. same thing.. any ideas?
I'm afraid this sounds suspiciously like a motherboard problem. It would help to know what model etc, as some Gateway & EMachine model laptops have had extended warranties due to motherboard issues, or just go to Gateway.com and research it yourself.
