Question about Gateway MT3705 Notebook

1 Answer

Problems My laptop just up and stopped working...2 weeks AFTER the warranty ran out of course. The power light and charging light come on but nothing else. No picture or sound but not sure on sound as it was muted when it died. I don't seem to hear any sounds coming from it at all even inside although a slight humming sound may be heard. Does anyone have any idea what may be wrong? Anyone know where I can download a repair manual for this? Thank you for your help! Dennis

    I have the same problem With my Gateway MT3750. It shut down by itself and when I turned it back on I got the screen to start it up in safety mode. It wouldn't start up either way so I turned the power off and when I went to turn it back on NOTHING. The light indicating the computer is on was on, but nothing on the screen at all. This also happened exactly 14days after my warranty was up... and trying to get help from customer service is a waste of time, After paying them just to talk they wanted to charge me more than I paid for the computer to fix what they "thought" was wrong and asked me to pay before they even looked at it.

My toshiba satellite L25-S1194 wont turn on. no lights, nothing. how could i fix this?


Try taking the battery out, plug the computer in, and see if it turns on. Press the "Power" button for at least 20 seconds (and press hard). If that doesn't work, put the battery back in, and do the same thing. I assume no lights appear like its charging (as you said). If this is the case, then you might have a dead charger (wire broke inside, power surge broke the adapter, etc). You may want to try a different charger of the same model (either from your local Best Buy or from a friend). If it does look like its charging, then your laptop's power supply has died (or the motherboard has died). This is a much bigger hardware problem and should be under warranty (or time to buy a new laptop). All data should be recoverable, however.

Acer Aspire 5738Z won't hold charge


Sorry. It seems that your battery is dead.
If your laptop is working fine on AC power only (with the battery disconnected), then your battery will need to be replaced.

My acer 3004wlci wont power up. when i put the fully charged battery in the yellow lights flash for 3 seconds but wont turn on & when i use the elec cord it does nothing at all.


I had the same problem. I removed the battery and just used the AC Power Adaptor. The machine powered up and ran fine. I replaced the battery and have had no problems since (2 years ago now)

Pluged in but not charging


Hi Lisa,
The laptops only four weeks old and you experiencing problems already!!!!
The best advice that i can give you is to remove the AC power from the laptop and run the battery completely down to the laptop shuts itself down, then try to charge the battery to 100% charge, if it charges to 100% then all's well and there is nothing to worry about.
If it only charges to 95% again then i would recommend that you back up any data that you have on the machine to a flash drive, external drive or CD/DVD and take advantage of the manufacturers warranty and send it in for HP to deal with, it will cost you nothing as its covered for at least a year.


Good luck and regards.

Pavilion dv6000 when power button is pressed,


Have you tried to boot the laptop with the power cable connected? Is the charging indicator on when you connect it to the adapter? If the charging indicator does not light up, check if your adapter output and try booting it with the power cable connected.

Charging, but no power compaq precario


Hello, Did you twist any of the wires/cable on your charger? Can be a problem on the plug, try, very gently, to turn it, if round that is, and see if theres is a contact in between. Regards.

My laptop powers on but won't boot, fans start and nothing happens?


I just had same problem with 2 laptops. Power light came on and fan ran a few secs but nothing else. I replaced motherboard and CPU in one. The other just had to reseat CPU and it works like a charm. I thought it was AC adapter or LCD but it just had to be reseated. I would try that before I bought anything.
