Question about Gateway MX6448 Notebook
I am having a problem with my labtop staying on.At first I thought it was just the ac adapter so, i bought a new one. It worked for a month and it is now not working. I have to put the cord into the computer and hold it up a little in order to get the pink light to come on. I know i need a new battery but can't afford it right now. Any ideas why i can't get it to stay on? Any suggestions on how to fix the problem? I tried to take the whole computer apart and couldn't get the bottom to come off. I took all the screws out and the black part still would not come off. I thought maybe where the ac plugs in had been pushed back but i couldn't get to it. I'm out of ideas! :/
Definitely sounds like you have an issue with your DC jack and it needs to be replaced/re-soldered. You can have this service done for you for probably around the $99 (USD) mark. Just Google your laptop model and "dc jack repair" and you'll get results.
As far as getting your board out, I would definitely look for more screws that actually go through the motherboard into the bottom of the case. Some are even hidden under the silver lining that is visible when looking at the motherboard.
Good luck from Darntoothysam.com
