Question about Gateway M305CRV Notebook
Last month my apt had no heat and the place became like an icebox.
my table felt like the fridge just to lean on. i was using my laptop for a while during that time, then all of a sudden it would not switch on . i see the little light bleep but it would not turn the laptop on.
i went to the store and the guy tries to sell me a new laptop as i paid 250bucks for this one before. but i said no. i tried to boot it with a charge batteries it did not turn on either.
i think condensation or something must been the cause. because right after it happen, i put it in the sun through my window and it turned on and works for a couple of times . i used it for about several hours. turned it off and it works again, then it stopped working.
if this is due to condensation, would it not be ok now that i have heat back in my apt for a month already and i kept the laptop close enough to make sure it is warm?
can i do something myself. like open it up and change the switch?
it's useless to me anyway. so if i bugged it up in the effort, i lose nothing.
i just don't want to end up paying another 200 dollars for another laptop.
in fact, i spent another 200 buck to buy a desktop. it's not only much faster, it's sturdier and does a lot more than the lame laptop.
but it would be nice to get it working so i can use it if i am travelling again.
There no switch u can change, u still need to part with more bucks to replace the battery, it DEAD.
