I have a Gateway NV50 series laptop. My problem is that it doesn't power on. I shut it down properly a few days ago, and the next morning it wouldn't power on. No weird sounds, no fan trying to spin, nothing at all. The only sign of life is the charging battery LED does light up when I plug it. I tried all kinds of solution from all around the Internet but it still won't go on.
So I talked to the manufacturer tech support and the guy was pretty sure based on that information that it's just the power button that's dead. (These computers have a pretty special power button, shown in attachment) So I'm wondering if I can have a second opinion here before ordering the button. Is the charging battery LED a good indication that the problem isn't a toasted motherboard? Do you agree that the power button is most likely the problem?
