Hi,

It migt be resolved by a power drain. Disconnect the AC adapter, takeout the battery, and press the power button for 30 secs. Put everything back again and try to turn it on.

If your Noterbook is still not turning on, then you might need a phillips screwdriver, or if its in warranty you might want to take it to Gateway technicians, as opening the notebook by urself might void the warranty.

** Before trying the steps below, disconnect the AC adapter and take out the battery.

Turn your notebook upside down, and look for bays, look for screws which has a rectangular comb like structure next to it, unscrew it and you will find RAM chips in there take it out and put it back in. Do this for all the chips you have in the notebook.

Put everything back again and your Notebook might be up and running, else there might be some hardware issues and you need to go to gateway or some local tech.

Regards,
Shrey

Try turning off the laptop, unplugging it, pulling out the battery and holding power down for 30-60 seconds. After that's done, put the battery back in, plug it back in, and turn it on.

Gateway NV78 laptop turned off and won't reboot.


So reformat a computer that can't access the hard drive, interesting trick. I believe the OP said the machine hangs in limbo with Power Lights on, I assumed the Lights are on, but no one is home, sort of like some of these solutions. Why am I not paid millions of dollars for being the smartest man alive?

I pop my system restore cd in the computer, restart, but no options are shown as far as following istructions. It just shows a regular screen. How can I restore my system software?


You need to go into the BIOS setup screen and change the boot order so that the CD-ROM is the first boot device. Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with gateway machines so I don't know the keystrokes to do it. However, everything I read about Gateway computers shows that it's the F1 or F2 key.

Gateway mx6437 audio drivers problem


The solution...
the xp audio driver file that the gateway site gives you for the laptop mx6437 (D00377-002-001.exe) does not work for some reason. I searched the site for "conexant ac link audio driver" and found what looks to be a updated second working version. (D00377-002-002.exe)

here is a link to the page:

(D00377-002-002.exe)

hope it helps
