Gateway 450ROG laptop does not boot

I have two 450ROGs belonging to my relatives. They both have the same exact issue. The power comes on, the status lites come on and then go off. The fan stays on but no display. I have switched the hard drives, power supplies and still no display and the LEDs only come on for a second when the power is switched on and then they go out. I hope some one has some ideas as I have none at this point. Thank you,

I have a similar problem with my 450rog but I get 3 beeps on startup - everything runs: fan and drives but the screen is blank and the computer dead.
Gateways tech dept told me it was a faulty memory module but I bought a new one and it made absolutely no difference.
So must be something moreserious.
Good luck

Gateway laptop

The first link shows what the status lights are, and the second is for the user guide. I believe the status light you're seeing indicates that the module is ready to swap. This refers to the modular bay or your CD drive. This is covered on page 52 of the user guide. It appears that you have hit the safely remove hardware icon, and most likely turned off the CD drive. Release and slide the drive out and put it back in. This should reset it, and the light should go off or turn green.

Sound Card Broken?

Im sorry to say it sounds like a surge in power is causing this issue. It would be interesting to see if an original power supply solves this issue. In any case I would get this checked by a qualified engineer to determine the exact fault (Use the repairman finder on this site to find one near you.)
