    I have a Gateway MX6446 laptop and it's doing the same thing! I was actually using it normally, then suddenly got a white screen with evenly spaced vertical lines. I switched the laptop off then powered it up after about 30 seconds and then that's when it started doing the rebooting cycle. Help, laptop gurus!!!

I'm sorry to say ,but I think it's with the motherboaed. Use the AC plug with the battery removed ,and see if it will power up. If not, I think it's a bad motherboard.

Gateway notebook wont boot up


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.

I need a new graphics card for my GATEWAY 4530GZ Laptop.


Hi,
The gateway system that you have has integrated video card on the motherboard. You would not be able to put in add on graphics card on the motherboard. As here is no place for it.
The alternative solution could be to purchase a PCMCIA Type II graphics card , that goes into the PCMCIA slot.

Frankly speaking this would not be a cost effective resolution. it would be good to invest in a new laptop instead.

Thanks for using fixya

Gateway MT6451 Does not turn on


leaving your unit in standby mode is not a problem as long as your ac adapter is plugged in to your ac outlet and to your pc. otherwise, you will have a drained battery. try removing your battery for a few minutes and then insert it back in then plug your ac adapter to your wall outlet and to your pc and leave it without starting your pc. notice the small pilot light at front edge of your laptop, it should be yellowish/orange. wait until this light turns green then you can try turning on your pc.

Gateway 450rog does not power on


Sounds like a voltage regulator. Have the system diagnosed at a repair shop. Sorry I know this isn't what you wanted to hear, but is probably the correct answer.
