    HI, I am hoping that someone can help me. I bought this laptop back in Feb. of 2007 and purchased the extended warranty but it wasn't through Gateway and they there in tech support want to spend more time dealing with that then just giving me a yes or no.

    I just started a new business and I am really broke and my Laptop died. It has water damage and needs a new motherboard says the ext. warranty company that wants $500 to fix it. I found a motherboard for around $80 bucks on a Gateway MP8708. It is part number DAPA6AMB6D5. My components on my computer are this:
