Question about Gateway MX8738 Notebook
I presume you checked the DC power supply. Don't use a generic power supply on this model, because that will cause alot of different symptoms. I use the exact same model on service calls. A further way to test the mother board is to remove the CPU and memory. Carefully provide power and look for lights. If none, my next step would be to refloat the video chip. This requires special equipment. A replacement mother board without processor on eBay is $49.00 so it might be time to consider that. Good luck
