hello and thanks for taking the time to read this.
i have a gateway mx7120 and it will not turn on. when i hit the power button the laptop tries to turn on (i hear the usual noises and beeps) and then after 5 seconds it shuts itself off and tries to power up again. it fails to power up again but i hear the usual noises. right now i have the laptop in pieces looking for some sort of reset button a friend told me about. i have not been able to locate anything that even looks like it might be a reset switch. please help.
