I have a gateway MA7 laptop model:MX6930 and it will not boot. Once it passes the BIOS the screen is blank and the screen is lit up. There is only one fan on after BIOS. The only way to turn it off then is to press the power button. Before BIOS the HDD light is on but only for about three seconds. The current operating system is windows XP. I have tried removing the battery, ram, and HDD but to no avail. I believe it could be a motherboard problem but if someone could help me make sure that would be great. I got it from a friend in this condition so I have never seen it work.
Thanks in advance, Phabs.
