It is the plug in the laptop that is most likely the cause, plug the power supply in the laptop. Now put your thumb on the plug at the laptop, as you bend it sideways hit the power button repeatedly to see if it will power up, failing that take the main battery out of the laptop and use power supply only. Please take the main battery out first to see if your power supply will start the computer if the computer starts up change the battery.

It is, like almost all "sound cards" are these days, integrated into the mainboard chipset. If is fails, mainboard replacement is the only solution for a notebook.

My internet connection via Ethernet vanishes when i disable my wireless connection. how can i keep this from happening. it's on a old Gateway MX6214 PC Notebook.

Sounds like it's connecting through wireless so when it's switched off, it stops.

Go to 'my computer' if you're using XP and right click, click 'properties'.

Go to hardware, then Device manager.

Look downlown list and choose 'network adaptors'.

See if both wireless and ethernet are working OK. Use properties to check.

I have a Gateway MX6214 and the fan quit working. It comes on when I start and shut off the computer. I know it can work why doesn't it run during use? Any suggestions?

The fan in laptop generally run at startup and once there is a need. They generally just cool the cpu (processor) when needed. Once the laptop is not showing signs of overheating. There is no need to worry.

I have the same problem with mine no power

I have an MX8734 and it died on me. I have 3 batteries and 2 power adapters but there is a bigger problem at work here!

These computers (almost all gateways) have a big power supply plug (connected to motherboard) defect. They are a $6 part but the moboards are $400!

You can send it to a computer repair shop but beware,,, as some don't know how to fix plug and will tell you its the motherboard. Because its a defect it can happen again after repair. Gateway doesn not repair units anymore as acer bought them and a 3rd party is doing warranties (or not doing them from what I hear).

If I was you I would: A) Have a shop that can fix plug do it.
B) Put it on Ebay for parts (worth about $200),
C) Have a real expensive (but satisfying) target at the ol range.

Looking for new battery for Gateway MX6214 The one that came with it is Gateway 6msbg model #3UR18650F-2-QC-MA-1 What do I order for a replacement? Can't find anything with the above numbers.

If you are talking about the box that you plug the electrical cord into, it is called a "power supply". second of all, you can buy a plain ol' power supply at your local computer store (like Fry's Electronics store) and replace it with that one and it will work great! just make sure that you plug everything in on the motherboard the way it was before (you can do this by taking note of what everything in the computer is connected to and then replicate that with the new power supply-perhaps take pictures?). However, if you are computer savvy, pictures wont be necessary. Hope this helps!
