Question about Gateway CX2610 Notebook

2 Answers

Stopped turning on, charge light appears when plugged in...

I had to flip my house's main breaker switch a couple times while replacing an outlet in my kitchen and did not remember my Gateway cx2610 was charging.  I went to use my machine later on that day and noticed it was charging, but not running.  I tried to turn it on, but no response.  Any ideas?

Here in the UK there is a fuse in the power plug, I don't how it goes in the US, but if you have a fuse in the laptopcharger's plug try to change it to a new one.
If there's none in the plug than if the laptop was not switched off, but it was in standby mode (very common with vista) and the charger went dead, than the battery went out of juice and the windows switched off the laptop, in that case try to buy a new charger, or use a spare one if you have any and it should work if there's no bigger problem, bout you had to have a big power spike for that and that would have damaged the TV or something else in the house as well.

Try removing the battery and plug in AC power only and power up, sounds like you may have shorted the battery

Each outlet receives power from previous outlet box or switch box in a long chain of parallel wiring back to ceiling box, or junction box, and then back to circuit breaker.
Use process-of-elimination to find problem.
Locate all boxes on same circuit breaker. Locate box before the two dead boxes... it can be in ceiling light, or switch box, or outlet box. Then test those wires. Look for loose quick connect where wires are pushed into hole on back of device, or loose white wires twisted together and shoved to back of box.

We just recently moved, and when we plugged in our dryer at the new house, nothing comes on. I cant even get the screen to light up, almost like the power source is dead. I checked the breaker on the house...


-Try difference outlet. If it works then the first outlet you plug in has no power.
-You said you already check the breaker. it looks fine.
-Did you do any thing to the breaker or just look...?
-If the outlet that you want to use still has no power then how about try this:
-Open the breaker panel. Flip all breaker off, then flip all on one by one and check again. If you have power now then good. But still have no power then most likely the previous owner or renter disconnect the wires to that outlet from its connector. At the junction box or may be at the breaker.

Good luck

Hello,
It sounds like your vacuum is fine if it works when plugged in the kitchen outlet. It is tripping the breaker switch in the other room because the circuit is overloaded (too many things plugged in this circuit). Try unplugging some things in that room and try your vacuum again.
If it only trips when using one particular outlet, then the outlet should be replaced. I would recommend having an electrician check your wiring out.

Hope this helps

We're attempting to label circuit breakers in our home. One is currently labeled "WM" and it's not the washing machine. What might it be?


Hello

It could have been the washer at one time but the breakers got moved around over time. The washer should be on its own 20amp circuit. What size is the breaker? 20amp? 15amp? It is on the tip of the switch of the breaker. If it's a 20amp it should be for the kitchen or dining room outlets. It could also be for an air conditioner in the window. If it's a 15amp then it could be for lighting or other outlets other than the kitchen, dining room or ac outlet for window ac. That's just the basics. How old is the house? I've seen some really mixed up wiring in older houses. You could also buy a "Sperry" circiut breaker finder for about $50. It has a outlet plug that connects to an outlet and another handheld scanner that you scan the breakers with to find the correct breaker so that you can label it.

Cannot find wireless switch for my Gateway cx2610


It probably is a small switch on the front or the sides of the computer. If there is not one, then it is Fn+something like F2.

Popping the Breaker


Ok, first a couple of things, you didnt mention if it popped the breaker when you were using the oven, burners, of both or if it does it as soon as you plug it in. If it does it as soon as you plug it in, you have a short in the back of the unit. you need to pull the back panel off and look to see if the broil or the back element wires were touching the the back panel. This is a common short. If it only does it when you are using both the burners and the oven, you might have a weak circuit breaker that needs to be replaced in your house. Unfortunately, age has little to do with it, I've gotten new breakers that didn't function correctly.
