I have a 2 year old nv52 gateway that one day wouldnt come on even though i could here the slower fan running as well as the disk drive spinning at first. A computer repair place "fixed" the northbride, and it worked for a couple of weeks then when back to the same thing. He then replaced the processor, and I got another couple of weeks out of it before the same thing again. He replaced the processor AGAIN and again i only got about two weeks out of it. I do have a program that monitors the temps, and they were not crazy hot. Another thing, the computer would work forever if i never turned it off or closed the lid, but every time this happened, it was when I was trying to restart, or turn it back on.

I have another power supply because wife has the same computer. With a different power supply, should it come right on, or would I have to leave it plugged in for a long period of time because it doesnt work either when i try it right away.

no, it should turn on instantly .

if i never turned it off or closed the lid



just reread the first post ,didn't realize it was a laptop ,when i made my power supply suggestion .

when it stops working ,is it just that it stops turning on ,no boot what so ever correct

when i push the power button to start up, you hear the fan come on, and the disk drive check for disk, but nothing else happens. Every time he replaced the processor, the laptop would work for about a week, then one fatefull day, I would try to turn it on again, and it would not come on again.

sounds like a serious hardware issue [video device likely ],not sure what to suggest ,but taking it back to computer repair would be one of my suggestions
