Question about Gateway Solo 9550 Notebook

1 Answer

Gateway Solo 9550 will not power on at all.


I read on the internet that this means its power board is dead or the hard drive failed.

If its the power board, where do I get it fixed. Are you in located in San Diego, CA?

    I had the same problem. I used a different power cord (not the adapter, the three-prong cord that goes from the wall outlet to the adapter) and it booted up just fine. The battery on mine is dead as well, but it may be possible to repair it (more info here as well). Let me know if you're able to repair yours or if you can get it to power on as well.

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

I need the size or model number for a replacement charger for the gateway solo 9550.


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.

My Gateway 9550 will not power on.


The power adapter, dose it match the voltage and the polarity shown on the bottom label of the laptop?

The voltage will be shown in V, for example 19.5V

and the polarity will look like this:

Make sure the charger is the same polarity as the laptop label says on the bottom, if its incorrect it may ruin your laptop.
