Question about Gateway 450ROG Notebook
After turning on I don't see the POST. The screen stays black and the onle sound I hear is ventilator noise. The small display just near the main switch with dvd-rom symbol on it lights red. I've pull out the dvd-rom module, replaced the hard drive, battery module and memory plate one after one (I have to of them) - the same result. What can be wrong? One my assumption is the laptop power connector. The central rod in it became loose. I could check it but not sure how to get inside. Can you give me a hint? Another assumption is cpu. The only thing I know about it that it's Intel Centrino because of the sticker on the dashboard. Can you give me more information about it? To check or replace cpu I also need to know how to onen my laptop.
Well ya if pin getting llose nee dto buy new jack on ebay remove whole mobo solder in new jack or u could try new power supply ok maby old one not getting right amout of power to it ok happends alot cheak cable on lcd pushed down in socket dint get loose did it
