Before i start with the problem i will give some specs. If anymore are needed just ask.
Running windows 7
amd athlon 64 x2
To make it simple its basically bone stock gateway nv52 laptop out of the box besides the windows 7 upgrade i received free for buying it.
I closed the lid one night before bed, as normal, with it plugged into the wall.
I didn't touch it for a day, day and a half maybe, and when i went to use it again, I opened the lid, pressed the power button and nothing happened...
I noticed the battery was cold and usually when its plugged in it stays semi warm.
I looked online and tried a few suggestions
such as the tilting the screen all the way back then hitting the power button, or as i open the lid continuously press the button to find a 'sweet spot' should the connectors have broken that tell the laptop if the lid is closed or open, no luck with either method.
I took apart the casing around the power button the ensure the connection from the power button board to the pc was tight, it was.
Took the battery out and plugged it in, nothing.
When the battery is in, and its plugged in the battery light shows a 'blue' light. telling me the ac cord wouldnt be bad, its getting power from the outlet, or why would the light come on?
I basically cannot figure out what happened. Its hard to determine givin i wasnt near the computer at the time.
i was hoping someone here may have an answer...
I am not interested in sending it to gateway to have it looked at, nor am i interested in giving it to a shop. Both would cost money i cannot spare at the moment.
and NO i do not have any type of insurance on it and the warranty may or may not still be good (most likely not considering i took it apart).
