We purchased a Gateway laptop for the wife about 20 months ago. She uses it for e-mail and games only, and then maybe 5 days a week. It was working fine on Sunday. Monday....dead as fred won't come on. Took it to the Geek Squad and they could not get it to start up either with the battery in place or pulled out. Tried changing the power supply and still nothing. Their diagnosis is the mother board is probably bad and it would be just a cheap to buy another computer. Sounds like a power supply problem me, but any thoughts would be much appreciated.
