You have a nice, broken machine. That is why the price was what it was. Have you checked the battery? Some laptop computers will NOT come on if the battery is dead or faulty. In my experience, if the battery is done for, you might consider purchasing a new machine. Batteries typically run from $85.00 to $150.00, US and a new laptop can be had for slightly more than $300.00.

I understand even $150.00 is less than $300.00. Here is the thing, your computer has never worked. You might spend the $150.00 for a battery and could still have a broken machine - then what - but a new one that your new battery will not fit? What else could be wrong? Spilled soda on the key board shorting out the works. Dead hard drive. No or faulty memory. Faulty or bad display. Cooked processor due to insufficient cooling.

My advice, salvage the parts and replace the computer.

Thank you for your question ! FixYa.com

2. test the power supply on another machine.
3. malfunction on the main board.

How can I get a replacement power supply?


What you are after is an AC adapter this model I found on ebay has 120 volts to 240 volts to 12 volts make sure the DC voltage output matches the Voltage of your hard drive. The current output has to be the same amount or larger in value. So if your drive needs 2A a 2A or larger value means it can handle the current load put on it by the Hard drive.

this one below matches the exact model number of your hard drive

Push power button it lights up for 3second then shuts off what is wrong with it


Could be bad ac adapter or bad motherboard. Have seen lots of cases where the ac adapter was bad and the laptop no longer starts after the battery goes dead.

Gateway ma7 will not power up


Gateway MA7s have dodgy DC sockets. Poor solder joint on +ve pin = increased resistance = lots of heat = burnt PCB around +ve pin usually shorting the +ve pin straight to ground. If you're lucky you might still be at the poor solder joint stage and the DC socket might simply need replacing and/or re-soldering. If not, it could be a burnt PCB and it's a pain to bypass the burnt areas due to how the power gets distributed around the PCB.

AC adaptor for 32 inch Protron TV


It seems a lot of people are having problems with the Protron power supply. I’ve been able to repair all the ones I’ve seen so I’m confident I can fix them. I don’t sell the replacement power supply but I’ve heard about the ones on EBay. They seem to be a mishmash of two power supplies (12vdc and 24vdc) wired together with the proper connector. This should work but it just doesn’t sound very clean looking to me and they end up costing $150.

I’ve been charging between $50 and $100 to repair these power supplies. My recommendation would be to send me the power supply I’ll check it out and unless it’s unusually damaged it will cost $50 plus shipping to repair. If I can’t repair it I’ll return ship it and only charge for shipping.

I will guarantee the repair for 1 month. I don’t know what’s causing the power supplies to fail so I can’t guarantee it any longer than that. My feeling about the reason the Protron power supply stops working is two part; could be overheating due to lack of proper ventilation to the power supply; or the TVs power requirement is overdriving the power supply.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
I repair these at my work, so here’s the shipping address:

Dave Simpson
23372 South Pointe Dr.
Ste. B
Laguna Hills, CA 92653

Also, I’m set up for PayPal.

Have the power supply replaced. It is a very simple procedure. I would recommend buying an 80+ model which is very efficient.
