Hello! I have a Gateway NEW90 laptop and it will not power on at all. There are no fans and there is nothing on the screen. When the power button is pressed when there is no power cable, only the battery, connected nothing happens at all. When the power cable is connected the battery light on the front is solid orange and the when the power button is pressed it flashes once. If left to charge, after about five minutes the battery light begins to flash and is still orange. When the function and escape keys are held while pressing the power button, which is supposed to reset the BIOS, all of the lights flash very briefly and then only the orange battery light is solid. Could a new battery solve my problems? Or is the motherboard bad?
