    my mt3422 would go blank when turned it on too. sometimes i even had to take the battery out while its charging because it wouldnt charge while the battery was in. when i did get it to work it would shut off in the middle of my work. i had a2 yr service plan so brought it back to best buy and they told me it was the harddrive. so they repalced it. thought everything was fine then it kept doing the same thing. brought it back hoping they would give me a new one (wrong). they said it was the motherboard and cpu. they replaced it and it seem to be working fine now.

    Same happening here.I have a Gateway MT3422 laptop as well. It was happening on and off for like a week until now i can't turn the thing on at all...Like, somedays it wouldnt turn on like normal, just give me a blank boot screen and sit there. So i'd take out the battery, turn it on again, worked fine. But yesterday, i got the computer to start, but then i checked my email, the screen froze and pixelated, so i took out the batery. Now it wont turn on at all. i push the power button, the lights by the trackpad flicker, then go off [except the CD one, that stays on even though i have no CD in..] and the computer doesnt start. i dont think its a screen problem, becuase i don't hear any start up sounds. but, basically, i have no clue whats wrong with it [and what a shame, its been a great computer till now] please help!

Bad motherboard.  A new one is about $300 but it eventually will fail again as I am currently researching this issue and seeing many complaints of this nature.  People have replaced the motherboard many times and came across the same issue.  I am working in one for a friend am going to recommend he junk it.

I have the same issue, but my daughter figured out how to start it when it does this. Push the power button off and hold it for about 15 seconds, then close the lid. Open the lid and hold the power button down until it starts.

Re Boot


Try disconnecting everything from teh system. turn off the system. Take the battery out and unplug the Power cable. Leave it that way for 5 minutes and then hold the Power button for 1 min and then connect the battery to the system only. and try turning it on.


Hope this Help.
Cheers!!!

No video screen at all in mt3422 gateway laptop


Unlikely. Most systems won't boot without a working display card, you'll get a beep code. USB video only works on a fully booted system so the operating system can initialize the device and load the drivers.
