Try running your laptop with the battery charge cord in but take battery out. If that doesnt work then the charge cord or charging hole might be shot. is the charge cord feel loose? like if u sneeze could it easily fall out? I like using humor.. If you take battery out run it or try to run it with the charge cord in and plugged in. If it works then that means it's ur battery. I had my laptop in the shop it was running hot. I used to call it my clothes iron.. nice hot and flattened my clothes for me. And thats all it did. I took it to the shop cause it wouldnt charge up, turn on.. made a lil noise as it tried for a second to beam up. Repair couldnt figure it out due to the fact it didnt start. It got back to me only to work for me this time. Then I lost it again. ANd spent some money modifying it with a different motherboard. One that doesnt fit. Oh ya im on that one right now... doesnt seem to be much of a clothes iron any more. But it serves the purpose. If you can fix it with a new battery or a practically inexpensive new charge cord then great.

Its most probably a RAM gone bad. try taking out one of the ram modules and check to see which RAM slot or RAM module is acting up (mine was the ram slot 1 which suddenly stopped working). Or if your using pc3200 try replacing it with pc2700

also since u have opened up anyway try to do some cleaning

1. open up the fans and clean it- lots of dust and gunk in there
2. take off the cpu heatsink, clean it and put on a fresh coating of thermal paste

Power light blinking on nv53a gateway


Your Gateway laptop comes with a series of LED lights that alert you to the state of your computer. You'll notice there are blue, purple and red lights that either blink or display solidly. Each light, blinking or solid, has a different meaning. The blue blinking light on your laptop indicates that it is in Standby mode. Your laptop goes into Standby when you close its lid without shutting down the computer. To turn this light off, you'll need to take the computer out of Standby mode, and if you want to ensure that the blinking blue light does not return, shut down the computer after each use.

Open the lid of your Gateway laptop and press the power button. Once Windows loads, enter your password if required. The blue light will no longer be blinking because the computer is no longer in Standby mode. Shut the laptop off when you finish using it rather than simply closing the lid to stop the blue light from blinking again. Click "Start" from your Windows desktop and click "Shut down." Change your computer's power settings to keep if from going into Standby mode when you close the lid if you'd rather not shut down your computer every time you use it. Click "Start" and click "Control Panel." Click "System and Security" and then click "Power Options." Click "Choose what closing the lid does" from the list of options on the left side of the window. Select "Hibernate" from the drop-down lists under "On Battery" and "Plugged In." Click "Save Changes." Your laptop will now bypass Standby mode when you close the lid and it will enter Hibernate mode instead. Hope it helps.

Gateway m675 fan runs almost constantly, and it's having an affect upon my hearing (due to an old injury). I've tried the simple things, like cleaning vents, or adding a laptop cooler/platform (on the...


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.

Describe your Gateway M675 Laptop w/ Pentium4 Gateway M675 won't maintain a charge after charging and the display flicks from ac/dc until the battery is completely empty. Do I need a new battery or power...


Sounds like you need a new power adapter.The M675 needs the correct voltage constantly to work correctly.I'm using one right now and it does the same thing with the wrong adapter or a weak adapter(low voltage).M675 is a great laptop but with the 3.0ghz its got to get the power it needs especially when its under a heavy load.

Gateway M675 will not boot. When I push the start


Hi,

This might have something to do with the battery.

Have you tried to boot it up without the battery in it?

Power does not go on. was using it and all of a sudden the blue power light went red and it would not come back on. it is a gateway model W34OUA OR MT3419 AND IS 2-3 YRS OLD


Red light means battery is dead. Does it charge when you plug itt in? If not it is most likely your power adapter on your motherboard.

Blue led power light blinks even after shutdown


What operating system are you using? When the power led continues to slowly blink, that means that the laptop is in standby mode and not fully shut down. In Vista, if you hit the power button on the laptop or the power button under the start button, it is configured to go to standby and not shut down. Make sure to hit the arrow all the way to the right and select shutdown from the list of dropdown options.

Switching out a hard drive for a Gateway M675


What you're looking for is an IDE PATA (UDMA/100) drive, you can however use a SATA to IDE adapter if you want to use the SATA drive. Most likely you'll have to get a power adapter cord for the SATA drive also as your machine's power supply probably doesn't have one. You're going to be better off just using an IDE drive.

Here's a link to ebay auctions for these types of hard drives
