First try this: Unplug the laptop from the AC adapter (very important). Then take out the laptop battery and place it back into the laptop after a few seconds. Try powering on the computer. If that does not work, then continue reading.

If there is a LED light on the gateway power adapter check that it turns green when the adapter is plugged in. If it does not turn green (assuming there's a light there at all) then your power adapter is bad. There are a couple of different places to go from there. If the computer is less than a year old take it to geek squad at any best buy to have them send it into service under manufacturer's warranty. If it is not less than a year old try buying a universal adapter from Best Buy to see if that works (which you can return without penalty if you wish). If that does not work then your motherboard is bad. The cost of repair would probably come close to the cost of a new laptop.

Gateway Laptop(MODEL M-6750): The power button keeps flashing blue and so does the wireless signal. I've tried removing the battery, holding the power button nothing changes.


Does it do this when it is plugged in? Try to power it up with no battery, and see if it acts differently, it may be a battery issue unsure. Is the computer working normally except for this problem?

My Gateway M-6750 laptop was working last night but today when I tried to turn it on the power button light flashes on and off and nothing else. I have unplugged it and removed the battery and held down...


Remove the main battery and the power supply charger, allow a few minutes to get rid of any residual charge. Replace the battery, press power, if there is no change, remove the battery. Now plug the power supply back into the laptop, press the power, if it starts up the battery is bad and needs to be replaced.

The issue probably may be power supply related. You can try removing the Battery and connect the Computer to direct power outlet. Reseat the RAM modules before sending to service depot

No power to my gateway m-6750 lap top. Have been


Hello,


First use the following steps:

1 Disconnect the battery and the charger
2 Let it sit for 1-2 minutes.
3 Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
4 Connect the charger (don't connect the battery yet) and try to start by pressing the power button.


If everything remain same, check the charger with a multimeter and match the voltage output with its specs.

If the charger is good, then there can be some problem with the DC jack (where you connect the charger).


Thanks

The fault could be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.
The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp anf the CCFL lamp is a tint fluro lamp and it dims with age or fails like any fluro lamp.
You could test the voltage output of the inverter with a multi-meter or just replace it cost about $40 and the CCFL lamp cost about $10.

Gateway 6750 not powering up. I have a good power


If it sounds like it is turning on for about a second and lights up then it might be the motherboard. Also the screen will stay black, but the lights will turn on.

With the power not staying on, its a motherboard problem. Try another ac adapter just to be sure just to rule out a faulty ac adaptor.

M6750 lcd whiteout


its going to need to be troubleshot deeper. Its either going to be an lcd, inverter or a motherboard problem. The only thing to do is to try another lcd and inverter. If those fail, then it has to be the lcd connector on the motherboard which means the motherboard would have to be replaced.
