You might need to re-apply some thermal grease onto the CPU's & chipset's surface beneath the heat sink. You might also need to clean the heat sink's vents.

    You could get a thermal grease at Radio Shack or similar electronics stores.
    As for where to apply it, you will need to disassemble your laptop to the level where you could remove the heat sink

Will not charge battery,have bought new battery, continues to go into not charging mode. Gateway model MA7 charger output 19.27v confirmed


If you are not getting any thing when just the charger is plugged in and either no battery or the battery is dead, but the system will run on a fully charged battery. There may be a problem with the motherboard that a DC jack replacement will not help.. some of the traces sandwiched in the mid-plain on the mother board might have corroded away and need to be bypassed .. check my blog for pictures on how this can be done. http://cegeekbook.blogspot.com/2010/07/gateway-ma7-mx6930-no-power-will-not.html

If display issue: connect an external monitor to see if any change.

Could be spyware - boot in Safe Mode (F8) - download, install and run SpyBot (spybot.com).

Good luck.

Gateway ma7 will not power up


Gateway MA7s have dodgy DC sockets. Poor solder joint on +ve pin = increased resistance = lots of heat = burnt PCB around +ve pin usually shorting the +ve pin straight to ground. If you're lucky you might still be at the poor solder joint stage and the DC socket might simply need replacing and/or re-soldering. If not, it could be a burnt PCB and it's a pain to bypass the burnt areas due to how the power gets distributed around the PCB.
