I have a Gateway NEseries 56R. It was working fine yesterday before I laid down and took a nap. When I got up the screen is black and when I hit the power button the nothing comes on. The power button flashes on and off for a few seconds and then nothing. Please help me get this thing working as I am a full time college student and need to to my homework while my son is sleep. Thank you for your assistance. I did take the battery off and put it back on to no avail. The computer was plugged in when it went down.

Hello,

Try this 1

1) Unplug the power cord --> Remove the battery --> Hold the power button for

60 seconds --> Connect the power supply then try to switch ON the laptop and

later put the battery back into the laptop.

2) If the problem still exists then click on the below link and follow the instructions
