When you power up the laptop the cpu fan and hard drive spin up and I get gatewaj power light on but that is it, it will not post. I would remove everything that can be removed drives, memory, battery, etc and see if it will go through normal POST sequence.
My Acer Nitro 5 is dead Reset bios to factory defaults and check for bios update.
I think the problem is with the motherboard. One will power up about tateway third time you try. This conversation is currently closed to new comments. Track this discussion and email me when there are updates.
Do not post advertisements, offensive material, profanity, or personal attacks. I have removed the hard drive and it would not post, removed memory, DvD, Network Card and no post. I have had the same issues, the problem that I found was a bios virus.
I’ve had several repair folks look at them – can’t seem to diagnose the problem other than it’s either a motherboard issue or the connection between the power supply and the motherboard.

On occasion when powering up the fan will speed up and then shut off along with the yateway drive. Gateway MA7 not posting. My first guess would be that the hard drive or CD-ROM drive is not initializing properly, leaving the system ‘stuck’ at that point. I have been able to get the laptop to boot by turning it on and off a dozen times or so and it will finally post and boot into Vista, and operates fine.
I wish they were interested in posting a tateway Can you boot into the bios?

Check and make sure everything is listed appropriately and then try booting into the OS after exiting the bios. I have 2 Gateway computers doing the same thing.
It seems from searching that this is a know problem with Gateways.

I’ve tried the BIOS patches but that isn’t the problem. Does this PC have some sort of diags partition on the hard drive? I have run several diagnostic tests and everything checks out?
