I have a Gateway M-6866 Notebook That has died. I have never worked on a laptop so I dont know anything hands on. I have read on the net but nothing I found seemed like my case. Can someone help me with diagnosing this. Here is the story. It acted like the hard drive might be going out for a week or so. Weird glitches I even thought it might be Windows. I was going to order a new drive for it I was so sure that was the problem. Being the school loaned/leased them we just put the laptop away and used theirs. Its been about a year id guess and I decided to see what was wrong. I plugged it it knowing the battery was fore sure dead and nothing. I tried removing the battery and checked all my power cord connections but still nothing. I mean not one light or even a hint of power. Where should I start with this? This thing is like brand new it was my daughters for school and has barely any use and never abused. It still looks like its a few weeks old. So I am ruling out it was dropped on its head syndrome.
