I have a gateway laptop model M-1631 U Windows Vista that will not boot at all. When you first hit the power button the fan will come on and it will act like it is going to come on but nothing ever appears on the screen. It will stay powered up about 3 seconds and then turn off and back on for approx 2 or 3 seconds. It will continue this as long as you let it. The only way to stop it is to hold the power button down for approx. 5 seconds. I have tried removing and reinserting the ram, I have tried starting with a/c plugged in with no battery, battery with no a/c and receive same results. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just a shot in the ark. Disconnect the AC and remove the battery. Hold down the power button for about 10 long seconds. Pop the battery back in, plug in the AC and give it a try.
