    I have the exact same problem and was also told it was the motherboard. My laptop was only 2 weeks out of warranty. I'll never buy another gateway product!!

    Just bought an externalhard drive case to try to save my data. If the hard drive works in this then I know its the motherboard. Wouldnt the computer still boot up and say it cannot load operating system if the hard drive was bad??

Maybe i would try to replace the harddrive first with a old one you have laying around or buy one from a computer-recycleing place first then if that does not work i would replace the motherboard

Gateway NV53A 15.6 inch Notebook, touch pad not working


Touchpad settings: right click on the touchpad icon on the Taskbar at the bottom right of the screen. Click on Default button, then Apply, then OK. Re-try. If that doesn't fix, then TouchPad ribbon inside the laptop needs to be replaced.

Gateway CX 2620 unit won't turn on. Replace motherboard?


If the power LED is on then -

The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

Please assist having problem with gateway notebook the note book does not start if power cord is not connected and switches offf when started also the battery always shows zero charge


1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
4. The power button could be bad.
5. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

Gateway MT 3422 problem


There has been a lot of problems/ complaints about this particular product. That is why I always recommend HP notebooks.

You can take it to a service centre where they deal in Gateway products but I bet you might need to replace your motherboard.

Good luck.

Gateway boot problem


This mostly happens when your motherboard is bad or one of the memory modules is bad.

The led light comming on indicates your power pack is ok but a component is failing to start especially when the laptop stops at the first screen stage where the manufacturer names appears.

The steps needed to solve this kind of problem would require technical skills and physical inspection.

If you still have a waranty period then seek a free service repair from an authorized or certified gateway service centre at the nearest centre closest to you.

If your warranty has expired, i still advise taking your Laptop to the closest Gateway service centre.

No video after upgrading ram


Did you accidently unseat the video card? Doublecheck to see if you completely seated the RAM and make sure you installed the correct RAM for your motherboard. Hope this helps.
