    I did attach an external monitor, however it did not come up with anything. I plugged an external mouse in also, it did not light up the optical mouse. It seems as if the computer is stuck in hibernate or sleep mode. Is this possible?

See if you can attach an external monitor to your laptop.If you can and you can see your display on the monitor the it is a faulty laptop screen .If you see nothing on the x monitor then the graphic card/chip is fried.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.

Gateway NV5337u Laptop worked yesterday, now only the blue lite comes on when plugged in. No fans or any other sounds.


We might need to talk more, to clarify to solve this promblem. First of all, have you done any update at all to the system? So by what you mean is that when you would go ahead and press the power on button, you get nothing at all... I mean dead, no lights, no fan, completely dead right? But when you have the charger plugged in, the battery light come on only saying it's charging? Is this blue light the battery indicator light, if it is, then that means your battery is fully charged. Try taking out your battery and just using the power adapter and press the power button to see if anything comes on, like fan, lights etc, then try it without the power adapter and only the battery. If you get nothing at all coming at all, I would assume your power button is bad or loose, or the wiring that connects to your powerbutton is loose because i have a gateway Nv series too, and the power button is located where the screen hinges is at, and I'm afraid that when opening and closing, it became loose. This happened to my Emachine, and all I did was took the plastic portion above the keyboard out, and followed the cable ribbon to see if it was loose, or became little disconnect. I kinda just tugged in a little bit and everything worked. I believe it may become loose. Now if the case is that the computer does power on and you get blinking lights, then we are looking at something else.

I was using it and turned it off and i came and turn it on and hp logo didnt appear on the screen it was only the lights and blank background please help me.is my sisters laptop and i took it without...


well. be sure the power is plugged in

then pull the battery out of the laptop

press the power button down

look at the little lights indicating power on .. battery charging and hard drive activity

if the power light comes on..

then the screen is the problem

if the hard drive comes on after say 10 seconds

it is definitely the screen



put the battery back in.. be sure it is in solid

put the power pack in the wall

if the battery charge light comes on

then the power is to the laptop and battery connections are good

so the laptop may have overheated...

wait five minutes

try to power it on again

if the fan does not power on...

it has a bad fan...

quietly set it where ya got it from then

Gateway 450ROG, will not start. Red DVD/CD ROM


I have the very same problem, the Drive light turns red, the screen is "black" and the battery charging light indicator on the front is off. No differance if I'm traying to power up on battery or AC-adapter.

Before this problem appeared I had problems where the laptop was powering off, with no warning, and I had to restart it. This happened several times and was going on for about a week before it died totally. Can it be the CMOS battery on the mother board? Anyone having clue what the problem could be?

My toshiba 2455-s305 wont boot up


If you are familiar with your laptop, i.e. the locations of hard drive, try to take it out of the its bay and put it back again. Also, if you can have someone check your battery packs, because from my experience with this laptop, when the battery packs is not charging well, i got some booting up problems.

Gateway 400SD4 won't power up


replace the battery or have it tested. If these batteries don't have a minimum charge the machine will not boot into windows & will just shut down.You might try checking the battery condition with the "battery conditioner" in the bios

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

Gateway 450rog does not power on


Sounds like a voltage regulator. Have the system diagnosed at a repair shop. Sorry I know this isn't what you wanted to hear, but is probably the correct answer.
