Question about Gateway M-6843 Notebook

1 Answer

My Gaetway M-6843 used to power up, then turn itself off in about 1 hour of use, then after a half an hour, and now it will not even start up. No fans, activity, etc. All that goes on are the power and bluetooth LEDs, but only for less than 1 sec. The Laptop still charges though...I am really at a loss here, maybe someone has an idea

Sounds like a overheated/damaged graphics card.Your ac adapter may be bad as well.

Startup takes hours, help?


The clicking suggests a power supply issue, a old trick I use in cases like this is a hairdryer, Try to heat (don't melt things) different boards carefully until you get a dramatic reaction, considering the brand which I do not like much less endorse, what is there to lose.

If you pinpoint the issue to one board try to locate that board.

It sounds like the lamp is going.
Do you know how many hours of use are reported on the lamp?

Many times these projectors have circuitry to shutdown when they suspect the lamp is near the end of life. Lamp hours vary and usually will go up to and even beyond expectancy, but there is occasions you can receive a bad lamp and have it blow in a matter of hours...not common but it does occur.

I hope this helps,

I've had my Gateway M-6843 Notebook for about 18 months. Since the day I bought it from Best Buy, the AC adapter port has been finicky. I'll be using the laptop with the adapter plugged in and the...


This problem can be caused by mainly two different things. It is either the AC Adapter itself and has a short in it, or sometimes it is caused by the Power Jack inside the laptop. Are you familiar with how to read a voltmeter? I can walk you through testing your adapter. If it is either issue, I would recommend trying to fix through warranty if possible, because the power jack repair can be expensive. If you need to replace the AC adapter, I recommend a genuine adapter, as universal adapters and cheap knockoff brands will cause issues with your laptop and usually not last very long.
