You could try completely removing the battery & power plug for several minutes to reset the whole thing but it sounds like there may be a failed component involved. Express Gate is a separate system which is why it may continue to work. You may have a bad motherboard or other component. Is it still under warranty?

I'm not sure if yours has this, but do you see a little pinhole reset on the bottom? You would have to insert a paperclip to press it. I'm afraid that if you do not have this then there probably isn't anything that can be done without taking it apart. :(

thank you so much for faster reply, bro,, i do see a pinhole on the bottom its was right beside the RAM, but when i insert paperclip i just feel i hit nothing inside, and i do that while my laptop on but there is like nothing happen,, thanks again your best, and another question plz, i have external hard i used it to install mac on it to use it on my laptop, but after i format the hard from mac OS and install vista or xp OS the external hard not work now not show icon in computer and cant open it, just hear its plug in laptop but show nothing....

I'm sorry, I thought the laptop wasn't booting into Windows. Now I'm confused.:confused:

Anyway, my guess is that the external drive is formatted differently you probably need to go into Disk Management and reformat it. In Windows 7 you would right-click on My Computer and go to Manage. There is an option on the left for Disk Management and then it will show all attached drives on the right, even if they don't show in Explorer.
