Hello! I was given by a friend a older Gateway NV Series laptop, which seems to be acting up. It is a somewhat old computer, when I got the charger and plugged it in and turned it on at the friends house, the BIOS booted fine. I turned it off afterwards and took it home.
Now the screen isn't booting at all. When I press the power button, the fans spin and the hard drive sounds like it's moving, but the Red LEDs that indicate Wi-Fi and HDD activity never come up. The screen doesn't show anything, not even the BIOS now. This was a 15 minute timeframe between when it first booted fine.
Upon closer listening I hear two quick beeps when it tries to boot. I have tried reseating the memory, but to no avail. Any advice would be great! Thanks.
