Possibly Need a New DC Jack In Your Laptop... the DC JAck Is The Port Where Your AC Adapter Plugs Into...

Though You SHould as well Check For Proper Power To Your CHarger Cord.. Not all AC Cords That Have Their Lights On Are Able To Charge...

To CHeck If It's The DC Jack... Remove Your Battery..... Plug In the AC Adapter Cord... Power On... If You Get No Lights/ No Power/ No Fans Etc..... It's Your DC Jack

Hi there. Your problem seems to be the battery. Usually when the battery is at the end of its life the indicator stays at 0%. If you are still unsure you can go to download.com and get free battery testing software. Good luck...

Doesnt stat up and no light showing charge


Hi,
Here's one way to determine the problem.
Take the battery out and try to boot on AC power only, if it boots turn it back off, reinsert the battery again and try to boot.
Sometimes you just have to take the battery out and plug it back in again, with others it is the battery and you have to leave then out until a replacement is bought.
If it still won't boot on AC only, remove and reinsert the memory, try to boot the computer and listen for any beeps.
Post back if you need further assistance.


Good luck.

No Power to Gateway Laptop


Michelle,
Check the fan vents... if they are clear of dust and lint. If there is some it may need a cleaning inside also.

Since the battery is light is "red" remove the battery. It could have been over heated or shorted outinside.
If it dont power up at all with only the AC adaptor (removing the battery) then try the reseting the "Reset" button under the unit.
