Question about Gateway (4000779) Motherboard
I've replaced the motherboard on a gateway 700x desktop pentium 4 computer thinking it would resolve the issue of no display on the monitor and a solid amber light on the computer's power button. I've tried other video cards that I knew were working. I've swapped cables, power supplies, and memory cards and nothing works. I've tried everything but a new processor.
To el_cid_132: Did you mean to say a solid amber light on the MONITOR's power button? If, after all you've tried with the computer, you still have no display, it's a pretty good bet your monitor is bad. Try another monitor to verify the computer function. Take a close look at the pins in the monitor's input cable plug. They are pretty easy to bend, and you may have one not making contact.
To Jaffe: It's a simple job to remove the hard drive from your laptop and hook up to another computer to copy anythig off that you want to keep. I don't know what a shop in your area would charge, but it should be reasonable. As for replacing the system board, a quick Google search for "MX6448 motherboard" turned up several sources, price range $250-$300. Usually it's not worth putting a new system board into a laptop unless it's a very high-end model. You can buy basic laptops now for around $400, and you'd be getting brand-new with a warranty.

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including
the leads from your
