Question about Gateway M-7301u Notebook
I believe that your problem is not the motherboard but the DC Power Jack that you plug the power source into. This is a regular problem I've faced with Gateways often. I now send them in on a regular basis to any one of several DC Powerjack Replacement vendors on eBay, who will offer a flat rate of around $80 dollars with return shipping. You will be responsible to pay the inbound shipping and I use parcel post as it's least expensive.
Go to ebay and in the search box type in DC Power Jack Repair and you'll get a big list. I cannot recommend a specific vendor here due to policy but I have never had a problem with any vendor for this problem yet.
