Question about Gateway MX8711 Notebook

Computer stopped receiving power and won't turn on.

Computer stopped receiving power from the power chord. Died and won't start again. Had this problem with a duplicate computer, the power chord port was loose and finally just died a few weeks ago. Transferred the hard drive into this computer (exactly the same) and now the same thing has happened, minus the loose power chord port. Never had this problem with this computer before.

    Everything was exactly the same when we switched it over and it booted up just fine. It worked great for about three days and when we woke up this morning, my husband noticed that it was running on battery power, and then it just died - because the battery was drained. It had apparently been running on battery power for a while. It was plugged in, yet not getting any power. We'd never had any power problems with this computer.

When you move the hard drive from one computer, it won't boot up unless the both computers are exactly the same model and configuration and with the same installed devices.
Generally you need to install Windows again to get a functioning computer when you transfer a hard disk into another computer.

Laptop Won't Turn On (Toshiba Satellite U205-S5057)

Try a new power adapter before you try the other expensive tests and repairs. The adapters are notorium about failing after being used continuously . If you can check the outgoing voltage at the tip where it fits into the DC jack on the laptop would be good. Match the output to the rated voltage needed to peoperly power the laptop.
