Gateway MA3 Notebook won't power up or charge.
Posted on 2008-06-20
A customer just brought me a Gateway MA3 notebook that wont power up or charge. Seems like a problem with the AC power connection. With the battery in when I plug in the AC adapter and push the on button, a small red light goes on for a moment on the front of the notebook. Without the battery there is nothing. The customer brought this refurbished laptop from Tiger Direct over a year ago so theres no warranty. Given the cost of new laptops and the fact that this is refurbished we put a $150 limit on cost of repair. Is this worth fixing and how can I fix it?
