Having problems with your Gateway T-1625 Notebook ?

Gateway T-1625 Laptop won't boot up at all

\015 When I press the power button, the fan come on and the hard drive sounds as though it is activating. The system does not begin the posting process, as the LCD does not come on at all and there are no beeps. The system locks up at that point. The power button pilot light does not come on, but the 5 blue icons below the mouse pad come on and stay lit. The laptop just sits there with the 5 icons lit and the fan running. Holding in the power switch will not shut the unit off. I have to either remove the battery or disconnect the power cord to shut the unit off. The behavior is the same whether I power up under battery or charger cord. I tried hooking up to an external monitor, but no image appears. I removed and reinstalled the hard drive and memory sticks.Is my motherboard dead?\015

Answers :

It sounds like a motherboard issue. The fan spinning and the LED lights are running off of battery power. This indicates that power is getting to the system. You should look into replacing the motherboard at this point. Before you replace the motherboard feel your system to see if there are any really hot spots that would indicate overheating. If not proceed with the replacement. If so, let me know where the hot spot is.
