Question about Gateway 7330GZ Notebook

7330GZ won't turn on

When power up button pressed I get a yellow power indicator light that flashes for about 10 seconds and goes out. Any ideas?

    I have a similar problem. I have had my 7330GZ for 3 years with no problem until a few days ago. Either the battery needs replacement, or there is a bad (or intermitent) power connection (the battery cannot recharge), or both. Does your power cord get hot? Wiggling the power cord connection around on mine until you see the charge symbol on your power icon seems to be a temporary fix, but something is worn out. The battery also does not seem to last any where near as long as it used to.

    I haven't run into that with my 7330GZ. Does the battery have any life in it? Do you have the AC adapter plugged in? It could be possible the battery is dead and the AC adapter is not making a connection so the laptop is not getting any power.

I had the same thing happen to my computer 7330 gz and all the trouble was caused by a faulty ac adaptor. Battery wasn't holding a charge either because it's 3 years old and worthless. I got a replacement adapter at best buy for 100 buck and it's universal. Fixed it up just fine and now I'm sharing my solution with you!

try removing the battery and removing the adaptor press and hold down the power button for 5-10 seconds then let got this will power drain your system board noy turn the system on using the battery only without any adaptors to charge or power the system, try turning the system on if the system turnes on leave it turned on for a couple of hours then conenct your sysem adaptor monitor if the battery light and the battery indicator on the lower right of the screen in windows woll indicate that the system is chargin if it is then I believe everything should be fine the blue indicator is for your system if it is blue then your system is turned on and has power if it turned orange and blnking then the battery will be more likely be almost out of juice or may need charging.

Gateway M-6862 laptop will not turn on; battery light flashing re


Seems to be a problem of not enough power.

First check the voltage output of the charger(adapter) and match it with its specs.


Also try to reset the hardware using the following steps:

1 Disconnect battery and the charger
2 Let it sit for 1-2 minutes.
3 Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
4 Reconnect battery and charger and try to start by pressing the power button.

Try checking the inverter, if that is intermittent, it could short the system and cause the symptoms you are describing.

Power LED Flashing Yellow on Qosmio laptop F15


This flashing LED means only one thing, and it is quite harmless:

Your laptop is either "asleep" (suspended) or in "hibernation" mode.It does this if left for a long time with no activity/input from you. You must simply "wake the laptop up" now:

Look for a symbol on keyboard for "sleeping" (like a half moon with zzzz) and press that key WITH whatever color coded key matches the symbol color (usually "FN" key). If there is no suchkey, press the space bar and hold it down a few seconds.

Then wait. Can take 60 seconds to "wake up" on slower processors.

If this does not work, press AND hold the POWER button for 10 seconds. Then wait 60 seconds and press power key again, briefly, to start laptop normally.

Pressing and holding the power button 6-10 seconds forces a complete system shutdown.

If this happens often, something may be wrong with APM or ACPI settings/driver. You can go to start menu/settings/control panels/power management and adjust settings (or disable sleep/suspend and hibernation if all else fails to resolve situation)

good luck.

Toshiba power led flashing yellow


This flashing LED usually means only two things, both are quite harmless:

1. Some laptops will flash the power LED when battery is charging. If this is the case, it should stop when battery is fully charged. This can be presumed if the laptop starts normally while LED flashes. If not, suspect step 2 below:

2. Your laptop is either "asleep" (suspended) or in "hibernation" mode.It does this if left for a long time with no activity/input from you. You must simply "wake the laptop up" now:

Look for a symbol on keyboard for "sleeping" (like a half moon with zzzz) and press that key WITH whatever color coded key matches the symbol color (usually "FN" key). If there is no suchkey, press the space bar and hold it down a few seconds.

Then wait. Can take 60 seconds to "wake up" on slower processors.

If this does not work, press AND hold the POWER button for 10 seconds. Then wait 60 seconds and press power key again, briefly, to start laptop normally.

No Opening - The computer center control cover (A) continals to flash for 10 Seconds only


Make sure your power cord is pluged in and the indicator light in front is yellow (saying that it is "charging") - these cords are known to go bad quite often.

Your computer is saying there is not enough battery, or power to keep it from booting all the way up.
