If you are going to pull the laptop apart, I suggest replacing the plug entirely. Here is a link to purchase the power connector. http://cgi.ebay.com/OEM-DC-POWER-JACK-CONNECTOR-SOCKET-GATEWAY-CX2720_W0QQitemZ120338596034QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?_trksid=p3286.m20.l1116

I have repaired many laptop power connectors. I've never used a service manual. It take a little patience, and determination. Just start pulling out screws and feeling around for clips. You'll eventually get it. Just think, all these laptops were put together with the intention of being able to pull them apart, whether it be in the field or at a repair facility. "You Can DO IT!"

gateway support shows you have a pci-e x16 slot for a video card

you can choose a non-powered pci-e video card for your system, which might be better for you if you still have the stock power supply in your tower.

or, you can choose a powered pci-e card if your power supply is powerful enough to run your system AND a pci-e video card too. a powered card will have a spot for a 6 pin (or 2x 6 pin or sometimes a 6 pin and/or an 8 pin) power connector that comes from your power supply to the video card ... you may have to replace your power supply to use a powered card, or get a pci-e power adapter (not the preferred method, but sometimes works).
here is an example of a non powered pci-e card

and here is an example of a powered pci-e card, see that black connector near the back of the card, that's the power connection

and the 6 pin connector from the power supply looks like this (and power supply adapter shown also)

does this help?

Gateway GT4010 desktop pc powers up but NO VIDEO. I cleaned a massive amount of dust from the system and have checked every connection, cleared the cmos/bios, tried to power up with just the power supply...


Hi,

Dust can be a massive cause of problems on a motherboard as it acts like a blanket causing components to overheat and sometimes conducts small amounts of electricity. Many boards on this condition are basically fried and need replacing. You could try a 24 pin power supply but i doubt that will make any difference as you have done everything to restore it.



Regards.

My cpu will not turn on at all after being disconnected in order to set it up in another part of the room.


Try the AC power cord connection where it plugs in to the computer power supply on the back of the tower. The cord often can be loose in the socket, looking like it's connected but not making contact. Also be sure the new outlet where you have the computer plugged in has power. It may have a switch controlling it. It's unlikely there's anything internally wrong with the computer since all you did was move it, so you'll probably find it's just not getting power.

Gateway MT6821 doesn't charge; I already exchanged the external power supply, and it still won't charge.


the battery is damaged and has to be replaced, take the battery out and should be able to use it on AC power until you get a replacement

Laptop will not turn on.


plug it into the wall , most newer laptops will have a power boost while plugged into AC.
check your power cable receptical on the back of the laptop, these are notorious for getting loose.
check the cable on the ac adaptor, these are bad for getting breaks that you cant see in them (run your hand down the cable physically and fell for any breaks while unplugged, then do it again plugged in and watch for lights to flicker on the computer.
look for the power light on the laptop to come on when you plug the adaptor in. if you get a light on the adaptor and on the computer, then the adaptor isnt the issue.
the next step is checking the power button and power supply.. post what your results are here and we'll move to the next step if not resolved.
Regards!

Firewire problem I think - I have a Sony Vaio laptop, the firewire port is 4 pin, it is connected to a LaCie CD Burner via 6 pin and the burner is daisy chained to a AcomData external hard drive via 6 pin....


If the hub has an external power supply it migh do the trick. That way you can have a backup port if needed.

Make sure the hard drive isn't connected to the hub. Sometime windows doesn't see it when its connected to a hub.
