Maybe the battery went... As a rule of thumb, you should not have the battery connected when on AC power, unless for recharging purposes. It reduces lifespan in a galloping fashion.

I have a gateway t series laptop that has charging problems. It slowly started with me having to buy new chargers because the original one stopped working and each of the ones I replaced them with stopped...


It sounds like the D/C Jack is getting worn out. Especially if you bought a universal power supply for it. They never fit exactly like the original. Just close. You will most likely want to take it to a local laptop repair shop to get the jack replaced. Usually around $20 for the part and 1.5 - 2 hours labor for the repair. At least that's what I charge here in Fort Worth, TX

My Gateway NV53 has just stopped charing period. The Computer doesn't even reconginize that the charge cord is in. Can someone help?


This happened to me a couple times, the first time, I had to send my computer back to the factory because the DC board was defective but the second time I just had to leave my charger unplugged for an hour or so and then it worked fine. Sometimes, the charger will heat up to a point where it shuts itself off before it literally starts to melt.
Hope this helps, Nathan Taylor

I have a gateway mp8708 and it wont charge, boot, or even power the charging led. i tested the charger and itd fine. what could be the problem?


One of two things are likely your problem:

1) The battery is so dead that it's preventing any power from reaching the rest of the PC. Try pulling the battery out, plugging the laptop in, and turning it on.

If that doesn't work,

2) The motherboard power converter is burned out. If this is the case, unfortunately you will need a replacement motherboard or a replacement laptop.

Good luck, and hope this is helpful!

I have a Gateway MT6220b laptop and it is not charging properly. The charger charges intermittendly. Sometimes it does, someimes it doesn't. It seems to charge if you hold the charger in tight,in the...


Seems that something must have bent the connector inside the laptop itself. If you are knowledgeable enough you could see for yourself but I would take it to someone for an estimate to see if it's worth your time and trouble having it worked on at that level.

My gateway netbook wont charge, they sent me a new battery but again it will not charge, what could be wrong?


Hello,

The problem might be either from the charger or from the laptop.

To confirm and repair if it is the charger, all you have to do is to plug the charger on another laptop to see if it will charge, if it does not charge, then you know the fault is from the charger, and the solution is for you to replace it with a new one, before you replace it, try to connect another power cord to the charger, because sometimes the power cord might have been burnt, that have happened to me twice and replacing the power cord solved the problem. But if replacing the power cord does not help, then you need to change the power cord.

To confirm and repair if it is the laptop, plug in a new charger to the laptop, if it does not charge, then you need to understand that the charging port of the laptop is faulty and needs to be replaced, have a repairman replace the charging port for you.

Take care and good luck

Battery not charging


Bad battery or charging unit. A volt meter can check the charger although the battery is the problem if old I think
