:) Can anyone help me?? The power button on my gateway laptop will not push down to turn on. However, when I plug the laptop in or put in the battery I can tell the computer is getting power because the lights illuminated, but it still will not allow me to push the power button to turn on the laptop.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you... :tazz:

so the button physically will not push?

try getting some canned air and blow underneath it...if it's abutton that seems to be easily removed...try pulling it off (carefully) and see if something is underneath it
