Unfortunately, you can't solve this problem. What I have learned as the tech working on a customers gateway mt6451 is that Gateway dropped the ball when they bought a cheap (they spent 5 cents instead of 20 cents) motherboard component that allows the adapter to charge battery and run the notebook without the battery installed, the component seems to have a 1 year if that life. I am surprised they haven't been sued or forced to extend the warranty (like HP had to with their dv8000 series notebooks) althought they would have to replace the motherboard with one that has an improved component on it. How do you sue a company or force them to extend the warranty for a replacement that is made with a better component?

Charges but lights flicker when trying to turn on then lights turn off and nothing happens.just bought new charging cord oem.


Not all oem's are created equal, this sounds like a power supply issue. I would be tempted to try another power supply, first remove the main battery and press power, if it comes on the rechargeable battery is bad, replacement only option.

I have an Acer 6920 and just yesterday I went to go turn it on with the power supply plugged in and connected to the outlet and the light near the power button flashed orange and my laptop wont turn on....


Sounds like a malfunction in your power supply. I would suggest contacting Acer support and informing yourself about the warranty on your device.

Back light fine with power supply and goes off on battery.


I would need to know what operating system you are running because Vista has a setting for the display brightness when running on batteries. I would suspect that, that setting is turned down to conserve battery power. If this is not the case, then the battery may be too weak to put out the correct voltage requirements for the display. If you have Vista, go to the control panel > power options > In the left pane, look for the display brightness > here you can change the brightness for running on battery and for AC power.

Lights come on but no fans or powerup


Hello,

Please follow the steps below.

1. Please removed the battery and unplugged the power supply.
2. Held down the power button for 45 seconds.
3. After 45 seconds reinstalled the battery and the power supply and pushed the power button and if it works then you don't need to replace your motherboard.
4. Else try it couple of times or up to five times before it worked if worst comes to worst.

Thanks
