this may be the cheapest on ..if you do the work is not that hard ..just have to follow the steps ..and be sure you connect all back ..
to get to teh motherboard you have to remove all..starting with the hinges cover ..than battery ..hdd..dvd ..back lid..and than all screws that keep them together ..(also the heat dispenser..cause the screws are holding it back ...
after that keyboard..mouse pad..the usb ribbon at the side..and anything that crosses between the support ..(probably he lights on the lcd..and the lcd itself..from the hinges screws on the main side..

Good luck'll need it..:D! I know cause I just get my head out from one a few hours ago...:D

Contact Gateway for advice and a list of dealers in your area.

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers, for spare parts and service, Driver downloads and Installation Instructions as required.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

I hope this helps.

Laptop won't power on, suspect bad power port, is it better to replace just the power port or the whole motherboard? How hard is it to replace the whole motherboard?

Depends on the machine. In some case, the dc jack is easy to replace. IN other cases, you need to do soldering.

It takes about an hour to open an average laptop for the first time. When you get down the motherboard and jack. If the jack has power lines coming from it, you should be able to replace the jack for about $30.

If it is directly on the motherboard, you will need to solder. I would suggest a pro to do the soldering. That will cost you about $100 to $150.

You don't need to bother with the motherboard. It will cost more than an new computer.

I have a Gateway MT6705 Laptop. The battery will not charge. I have replace the battery and the AC Power adapter. Still will not charge. Is the remaing circuitry for battery charging on the Motherboard,...

I am sorry you are having to deal with such a frustrating issue. If you have replaced the power supply and the battery, you have already spent around $200. or more bucks only to have the same problem persist.

Probably the single-most vulnerable part of your laptop is the AC jack where your power supply interfaces with the laptop. Stress and fatigue cause power issues I see in every brand of laptop on a regular basis.

The good news is the part will only cost you between $20-30 bucks. The bad news is that unless you have a low-temp soldering iron and are experienced with soldering components on a circuit board, the repair will cost you around another $100.00. Its a fairly easy and quick repair with the right experience and tools. You will want to get your hands on service manual before disassembling your computer.

There is no additional circuitry on the motherboard you can or would want to bother replacing. Hope this helps FixYa! Please Rate up this solution if you find it helpful.

Laptop will not charge. After wiggling the cord

That's a short in the power input section of the motherboard- I've found, much to my dismay, that the power input/charging circuit on these laptops is not a separate circuit board as it is on some other models, but is a small area of the motherboard itself. You'll either need to have someone repair the motherboard or replace it entirely.

I have a dell laptop and the charger pin is mest up on the laptop

The power port connector is soldered to the motherboard. So, you would need to replace the motherboard (costly). It would not be worth the cost. Sorry.
