The d/c jack in my Gateway Solo 5300 laptop was broken when the adapter was ripped out of it, and I need to fix it. Any suggestions? I took apart the machine, and the motherboard looks intact, just the jack itself seems to be broken.

My gateway laptop note book, will not power up, I have checked the cord, battery etc. Went to turn it on one day and no power? someone mentioned that it over heated?


First of all, take the battery off and try to turn it on with the ac adapter (power cord) connected. If it comes up without the battery then it's your battery.

If it doesn't turn on without the battery and with just the ac adapter, try a different ac adapter. You can find one to try at your local pc shop or electronics store. If it comes up with another ac adapter then all you need to do is purchase an ac adapter at the store or order one online (cheaper).

If it still doesn't come on then it's either your dc jack or your motherboard. Normally if it's just the dc jack it will turn on or attempt to turn on when you wiggle the connecter in the ac adapter connection. If it's your dc jack it's relatively inexpensive to purchase online. The problem comes with having to take apart the laptop, desoldering the old and soldering the new dc jack, and putting the computer back together.

Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions.

Laptop wont come on


1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad.
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced

Headphone jack broke off inside


yes, you could easily open the computer and physically remove the wires from the mother board for the front audio jack. These are pin headers. Most all the time they are labeled.

The rear audio should already be working from the green jack. If not, then perhaps you have the RealTek Audio chipset and software. The realtek audio software generally has a orange speaker icon in the system tray. You can double click to open it, go to the Audio I/O tab and then click the little wrench icon. It will open the connector setting. On the connector settings screen is a checkbox. Disable front panel jack detection. Uncheck that, also a check box for Mute rear panel output when fron headphone plugged in, UNCHECK this. That should do it.

If you want to try further to remove the broken jack make sure the machine is off, use a very tiny needle nose pliers (electronic type) you should be able to pull it out.

What kind of computer do you have? You could also possibly remove the jack assembly from the inside, so you can get a better view for the extraction of the plug.

I'm trying to set up a Linksys Wireless A G card with an old Gateway Solo 5300 laptop. I use the same card with both a Dell Inspiron 8100 and 1501 laptops without problems. My network is setup using...


The old standby solution was used: I removed the card from the laptop and rebooted the computer without it. Then I re-installed it. I then checked the configuration and saw that it had not changed the network encryption to WPA-Personal from WEP - even though the card had shown that it had. So, I changed it again, and voila! - it worked. Can't believe that after working with these damn things for so many years, I can still get tripped up by the simplest solution...

Acer 9100 dc jack broken


search ebay for a DC Jack for your model. Disassemble your laptop. Desolder the broken DC Jack from the laptop motherboard. Solder the new DC jack onto the motherboard and reassemble laptop. If your not experienced in soldering of disassembling laptops I would recommend you hire someone to do this job. If you wish contact me jason@jrdtech.net

I need to disconnect the cmos battery, but don't know where it is on a gateway solo laptop 2550. please help!


Take it apart and look for it. That is the only way to find it. You will have to cross the connections to clear it while it boots up. It looks like a coin.
