    I've just been handed a gateway mx6124 that "works fine, just needs a charger" You've heard that one before, right?! :D I'm getting the 19+v output at the correct polarity on the charger (via meter) but do not get any indicator lights on the unit when I plug it in. I also get no response from the power button, no surprise since no lights which I presume means no power to the boards.

    All that to ask:

    1) is the power supply connection easy to access?? (I've done it before on a Dell but it was a task),

    2) is it replaceable or serviceable?? Maybe the better 2) would be is it a separate power board or is it wired to big mama like the dell? Still repairable but a little tricky to solder on the main

    3) is this machine even worth the time/effort? the specs look like it may be adequate for light browsing, email access and like that but first hand knowledge would be appreciated.

    Thanks for any reply you may have for me.
