Gateway MA7 Not getting power

By traz8 ·
Hi, I was working on my laptop the other day when it died as if someone had just pulled out the power cable, i've tried a different power cable, i've checked for any burn outs on the mother board but still nothing...I cant get the laptop to power up at all...does anyone know what could be wrong?

Gateway MA3 / MA7 No Power Problem - Solved

This is very common with this model. These notebooks will fail to power on, even after you replace the DC Jack. There is a short in between the layers of the PCB. This is repairable by a skilled technician. Precision Division in Clearwater, FL repairs this problem, for about a hundred.
