I have a Gateway (MA7) NX570X laptop and 1 week ago when I returned from vacation I found it was dead. I plugged it in and it is receiving no power, the lights on the front are not even lighting up to show it's charging. I checked the power cord with a mutimeter and it has power. I've read that it could either be a problem with the power cord plug on the laptop or the motherboard could be fried.
My question is, would it be worth trying to diagnose it and get it repaired or should I just scrap it and by a new one?
