Re: Gateway Solo 9550 will not power on at all.
First you would try the least expensive
make sure your ac adpater works
the plug could be bad on the end
next is the pin inside the dc jack where you plug it in, if the pin moves just a little , you may need a new dc jack sold on ebay cheap
make sure the battery is out when testing

Compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements
(written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage
& ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same,
or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the
laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at
least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be
less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be
providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery.
It'll not help you, due to symptoms of ailing hard drive. Go to your BIOS and see if there any Hard Drive status check (like S.M.A.R.T.) If not, get somewhere (DOS based) HDD test that will run from CD/USB without Windows running.
