Gateway T-1625 Laptop won't boot up - screen blank

When I press the power button, the fan comes on and the hard drive spins. The system does not begin the posting process and the screen is blank. The power button pilot light comes on and stays on. The behavior is the same whether I power up under battery or charger cord. I tried hooking up to an external monitor, but no image appears. I replaced the memory sticks and tested the hard drive on another laptop. I finally replaced the motherboard, using the same CPU. The problem remains the same.

At this point, can I assume the problem is a dead CPU?

Yes, if the CPU/motherboard will not POST (Power On Self Test), then changing the CPU is the only thing that you have not tried.

sounds like your system is booting up and running due to the hold power shutdown procedure. you might try replacing the video card or adding one if your video is integrated.

I dropped my notebook about 5 feet about and when i booted the message was operating system failed.


First thing to do is determine the health of the hard drive. Enter the laptops setup on boot and see if the BIOS has a hard drive test utility. When you boot the laptop, look at the screen and find the function key (F10, F2, F12) that you will need to press to enter the BIOS. After that, look through the menus related to the hard drive and see if a test is in there.

If you have an operating system disc that came with your computer try putting it is and see if you can load the disc. If you can go to the repair screen after it loads all files. When you are at command prompt type: chkdsk /r

It will try to repair operating system. When done type "Exit" and restart. If you can't load the operating system disc you might be having a graphics card problem. Go to the manufacturer's website and check on their forums for your problem. Hope this helps

Gateway t 1625 laptop not booting


If u can, try to reformat it, reason i say this simple solution is because u already had the laptop looked at professionally, and due to you're laptop being stuck at the windows screen, i see this happen on HDD swaps a lot. The HDD needs to be repair-formatted or fully reformatted to talk to the new mobo when switched out, try this if all else fails, i personally think giving this simple solution may fix the boot up issue, but do make sure ur friend who looked at your laptop hadn't reset ur C MOS and may of not reconfigured it, this may also be the main cause of boot up troubles so make sure everything looks fine in ur BIOS. Gabriel will have a more proper solution than this but i believe by doing this it may help u bypass ur loading issue

Gateway m 1625 operating system not found and its overheating


This means either the operating system on your hard drive has become corrupt and you will need to reinstall your operating system or, more likely, your hard drive has failed and you will need to replace the hard drive and the operating system.

As for your heat issue, use a can of compressed air and blow out all the vents on your laptop. This should help the heat issue; note that it is common for the laptop to feel hot as it is dissipating the heat from inside.

Thanks and please take a moment to give this solution a thumbs up rating with a solved solution as I answered your questions. Thanks.!

Gateway T-1625 Laptop won't boot up at all


It sounds like a motherboard issue. The fan spinning and the LED lights are running off of battery power. This indicates that power is getting to the system. You should look into replacing the motherboard at this point. Before you replace the motherboard feel your system to see if there are any really hot spots that would indicate overheating. If not proceed with the replacement. If so, let me know where the hot spot is.
