Gateway lap top won't turn on

Post by sage2b on Tue Sep 14, 2010 5:06 pm

My Gateway, MP 8708 or PA6A will not turn on. The battery is charged. Thought it was the charger/power cord but replaced that. So that leaves me with either a broken wire to the mother board or a fried mother board. Searched the net for instructions to take my lap top apart but cannot find any detailed service manual for it. I was going to solder the wire if broken myself, as I don't have $200 just for them to tell me whats wrong and then charge me to fix it. I really need to get this lap top running as all my business files are on it. I am a small business owner, construction, who has been hit extremely hard by this depression/recession or what ever you want to call it. Just relocated to a smaller community with only 1 place that would solder on the mother board if that's the cause. So any advice, help or suggestions would be extremely appreciated. Thanks

Hello,

Remove the battery and disconnect the power cord for about 15 minutes. Leave the battery disconnected and try connecting only the power cord to the laptop. Try turning on the laptop after that.
