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.

The lap top wont turn on. I tried to remove the battery then plug in the power supply and still it wont turn on. The blue light on the power supply turns off as soon as you plug it in to the lap top.


PLACE YOUR SYSTEM UPSIDE DOWN AND REMOVE THE BATTERY AS ITS TEMPERATURE IS IN WORSE STATE .TRY TO COOL IT DOWN .IN FUTURE PLACE YOUR SYSTEM ON SOME MATERIAL SO THAT THE AIR SUPPLY REMAINS CONSTANT AND TEMPERATURE OF SYSTEM DONT REACH ITS CRITICAL RANGE.

Gateway laptop will not power on


Sounds like to me, that you do have power going to your computer(other wise your lights wouldnt be on), but that your hard drive is dead.

You can take it to a computer shop and have them replace your hard drive.
