Hi,
Yes they can be fixed, and at a cheap cost if you do it yourself.
If you take it to a repair store the expect to be charged for labour and the part.
If you decide to do it yourself, then i suggest that you search for the part by model number from power sellers on ebay.



Regards.

How to replace Power socket of MX6453 Gateway laptop.?


Generally the power is soldered directly on to the motherboard on a laptop. So for the most part replacing it either means, finding an identical power supply and being really good at soldering, or replacing the motherboard. Either way if you are not very familiar with taking laptops apart, and computers in general, I would recommend you take it to someone who repairs them for a living.

If the laptop is still relatively new....check with Gateway to see if it's under warranty. If it is, they should fix it or replace it for free. If it is beyond warranty, you may find it comes out more expensive to fix, than just buying a new laptop.

Good Luck

Gateway left hinge broke


Definately an easy fix.

I suggest looking on eBay for a donor chassis.
Sometimes they can be had relatively cheap CLICK HERE (this one has both hinges broken however) - and sometimes just the parts you are looking for are available CLICK HERE (this is for the RHS one though).

An entire donor PC is adviseable, because usually the repair is not just the hinge that broke - as the rest of the lid is plastic!

Once the trim above the keyboard is pried off, you will see the monitor cable, and hinge screws.

The trim around the monitor must be dis-assembled and pried into 2 parts.
Then the hinge & Support are either screwed into the side of the screen, or the back of the lid.

Most look like this...

Replace reverse of removal.

HERE is a link that will describe it better and give you a visual reference.
You are interested in step #s 7, 8, 11, 12

Once the screen is free of the chassis - its time to remove the little rubber scerw covers in the lid, and disassemble.

Good Luck!! Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Gateway mx6453 powers off at random times


Notebooks are equipped with thermal censors that will initiate power off when it detects that the temperature become too hot.
You should check your notebook ventilation, clean it up as necessary to remove dust. You may need to open your notebook to get it clean.
If cleaning up is not enough and your problem persist, there may be problem with the thermal cencors become too sensitive or inaccurate. In this case, you need to go to service center to get it fixed.

Gateway mx6453 won't start up


I would say that the problem is with the video card, and yes, you may need to replace entire mainboard. Check your warranty period, if it is still valid, just go to service center to get it fix, no need to ask around.
When replacing mainboard, your files, softwares and settings is still in place. Unless you also replace the hard drive, you will have the computer back as is used to.
