Question about Computers & Internet
I checking a gateway MX 6440 laptop for a friend. It will not power up. I have checked the adapter with a volt meter and it works. I removed the hard drive and tested it in another computer and it works. The battery is new but doesn't seem to charge.
I'm taking a wild guess and saying the motherboard is dead. Does anyone else have any ideas.
The computer was one month out of warranty. When it died it was powered on and then apparently shut down and that was all she wrote.
You may be right about the mboard but also try changing the processor or taking out the processor and try powering on withou the processor. If its the mboard then it could have been because of a power surge and thus the mboards needs to be replaced. let me know how you go. thanks
