Gateway MX6931 won't boot

I'm not sure if this is from me plugging my laptop into "dirty power" or not, but, overnight, my laptop just decided to boot anymore. A blue light appear on the power button, indicating it's powering on. The hard drive light, comes on for about a second, then, never again, and something that looks like a trash can light with an up and down arrowblinks for a couple seconds and then not again. I don't ever get the gateway screen, and definitly not the windows screen. I have tried my hard drive on another PCand i works perfectly. :S Any ideas?

Have you tried a new battery pack for your laptop? Try removing the battery pack and then running it.

I have seen this symptom on other brands of laptop.

It may require a new battery pack.

I have a gateway intel centrion laptopand i cant remember my password to log on


You need to re-install windows, as no one can recover your password for you, and it must be typed in the same way every time. Next time write it down and put it someplace safe.

I just replaced my ac adapter for my gateway lap top mx 6931 thinking that was the problem for why my screen flickers when i plug my ac adpater in to charge my battery. The battery wont charge unless i...


Chances are the power jack in the laptop that is to blame. It's common for the solder connections holding the jack to the motherboard to break because of the power plug flexing. One way to check is to keep the laptop steady and wiggle the power plug. If the power indicator flickers, that's what's wrong.

The good news is that this is usually repairable. The bad news is that not all service shops are willing to get into this level of repair. The motherboard needs to be removed from the computer so the connections can be repaired. Sometimes the board needs some mechanical repair as well, and occasionally the only way to fix the trouble is to replace the board. Most shops want to replace the motherboard right off.

Call around to shops in your area and see who's willing to try soldering the board. That is usually all that's needed to get you going again.

No power on has had no issues but now will not power on


Remove the battery and AC adapter. PRESS the power button down and hold it down for 20 seconds. Put the battery back in and plug in the AC adapter. Try to power it on. This is called a power cycle reset.

LCD Replacement


Did the connector from the replacement LCD inverter fit in the socket of the motherboard? When you were replacing the LCD, did you have the battery out of the unit? And finally, have you attempted to start the laptop with the power cord in, but the battery out? I'm not familiar with the mx6931, but can you press the power on button without the trim piece that sits above the keyboard?
