I have a Gateway T series W350A. I had it on and then it just shut down on it's own. I tried to power it back on & it does nothing. Ive taken battery out & put it back in; when I push power on button, the screen flashes briefly but does nothing. I've tried holding power button down & putting in power supply then battery but it does nothing. Right now battery is in and no power supply connected - and the battery charging LED is on. Help if you can!!!

Hi mattx77 :D sorry to hear you are having this issue.
If the laptop is still covered by a warranty I would return it for repair.
Have you tried removing the battery and connecting the AC power adapter to
see if that works, something else you can try is removing the battery and
the Ram and hold down the power on button for 30 seconds to discharge any
static electricity that may have built up in the system, reassemble and see
how that goes, whilst researching your computer I notice they suffer from
failed AC jacks which will prevent your battery from charging or the laptop
running from the AC adapter http://pomeroycomput...a-t-series.html
