Hi Ken, The link below is a youtube video showing how to connect your laptop to the WiFi, Also There's videos down the right side of the link that may help as well...........CHEERS.. How to connect your Laptop to Wifi
Have you tried removing the battery and putting it back in?
Does the laptop boot when the power cord is plugged in? With and without battery?
What does the battery charge icon in the task bar (down by the clock) show?
These are the first steps I use when troubleshooting a charge problem.
If none of these yield a solution than it's time to look deeper. And it *may* be a problem with the motherboard or more specifically with the charger port or board. The next question would be, is your laptop still under warranty? Laptops are not fun to take apart.
I would suggest either taking the laptop in for service to have them remove the case an remove any dust build-up on the heat sinks.
If you're good with a screw-driver, you might try to do the cleaning yourself.
You can't really clean the air vents well without taking apart the laptop.
This is usually indicative of either the fact there is no hard drive installed in the system, or the hard drive is blank and there is no operating system. The third possibility is that there is a problem between the motherboard and the hard drive, not allowing the interface between the two to work. Check the hard drive and its connections first. You can always remove the hard drive and using an adapter attach it to another computer so it will be recognized as an external drive and access the drive for viewing the files if there are any.
Its possible that your slot could be dirty, you can try re seating the stick and then cleaning it with a brush. If that don't work you can just run it with one stick, last resort is to replace the motherboard.
From the information, that you used control/alt/delete to re-boot, I am assuming that you sensed that the computer finished the booting process. Meaning the tell tale sound (music) of windows booting was there, the hard disk whirling (blinking LED) for a certain period and stopping etc. If that is the case, (meaning you think your computer is capable of booting) probably you have a display failure. If you have a VGA cable connect that cable to the VGA connector (0n your laptop) and connect the other end to Desktop screen (monitor) or a TV screen with a VGA input. Probably you will see a display right away. If not press the Fn key and the key which changes the screen from laptop to external screen. This key will be marked either as CRT/LCD or with a picture( a square with two lines on either side of the square). If you get a display there, you may need to get a technician to change the screen.
I have a new gateway laptop with windows 7 and today it said plugged in not charging 8%. I tried everything and nothing worked so I turned it off and unplugged it and took the battery out and put it back in and it started charging...hopefully this works.
