Question about Gateway MD2614u Notebook
I have had this laptop for about 5 months and I am currently deployed. I have my laptop plugged into a converter and suddenly the power button just kept flashing iv'e tried taking out the battery and using it with the power cord only and with both but nothing works. i can hear a sort of buzzing sound coming from the bottom of the pc everytime the lights flash. monitor is blank and the fan doesn't turn on. so far twice it has turned on after about 20 - 30min of letting it just flash, i could restart it but once i shut it down for the night it wouldn't work. it seems to be hit or miss? does anyone have a solution? is there anything i can try to fix it even if it means losing all my saved data ill try it, or am i out of luck? Thank You
Thanks for using FixYa. The issue you are describing is usually due to faulty/loosely connected power connectors to the motherboard or hard disk. Check all the connectors inside the laptop. If the laptop still isn't starting and fan is also not moving then its a faulty hard disk drive. Also check the RAM dim slots.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

First check in back side you find RAM .there open its cover mostly ram is fixed upon battery.
So refix RAM memory then check.
Still face same issue then open back side cover and find motherbord then pull cmos cell from motherbord for 10 minutes so all settings are reset to defaults.
Then check .
If still not power up the your battery need to change .
Let me know if you need more assistanse.
