Yes! as this is a season time you'll get great deals and its much cheaper to buy a new system and call the call center once you are ready to buy after the discount ask for some kind of upgrade and then ask for another Discount and most probably as I did i bought a $600 system of dell that originally was for $798

There are 2 possibilities:
1. The internal charger does not work,
2. You received a defective battery (some after market batteries are very poor quality batteries).

Power is plugged in , battery is plugged in not charging with 0% available


If your battery will not charge, you need to run a test on some components on the laptop. The battery, the charger and the laptop itself. Once you detect the faulty conponent then you replace it with a new one.

To test the battery:
1.Power off the laptop,
2.Take out the battery,
3.Insert it in another laptop,
4.Check of it will charge,

If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the problem is not from the battery, but if it does not hold a charge, then it means the battery is defective and need to be replaced with a new one.

To test the charger:
1.Unplug the charger from the present laptop,
2.Connect it to another laptop to see if it will charge.

If it charges the laptop, then it means the charger is alright, and if it does not charge the laptop, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced.

To test the laptop:
1.Turn off the laptop,
2.Disconnect your present charger,
3.Remove your present battery pack,
4.Insert a well tested battery into the laptop,
5.Connect a well tested charger to the laptop.

If it powers on, then it and charges, then it means the laptop is working fine, but if it does not charge, then it means the connection port of the laptop is bad.Hope this information was helpful.

Gateway laptop Model No. NEW95 won't charge


If the main battery is not charging properly and you state the charger and battery are fine, then there is only one possibility, the charge circuits on the motherboard are defective, this is a very rare situation and I have seen it once in all the years of service, make sure the battery is not the problem because in most cases it is.

I Have A Compaq Computer But Got Some Reason It Cannot Be Charged.


Ok, your problem is not very well explained, I dont know if you are techy or nooby, also do not mention how old is the equipment. options:
1- Defective battery pack, HP has recalled a few battery pack models for them being defective, check with HP's website to see if yours has been recalled.
2- Defective or not working charger, HP and compaq chargers do not have indicator light unfortunately, so the only way to make sure is by testing the lead with a multimeter.
3- Broken cables within insulation, either power outlet to charger, or charger lead itself broken internally from being stepped on or run over by furniture. test them both.
4- Worse case scenario, if your charging light goes off and on every few minutes, then your power board may be going out or defective, battery not taking charge (dead), possible issue with mother board going bad.
Hope this helps a bit...

WAS MISSING CHARGER, but was running on battery. will not charge battery or power up, no lights. Battery went dead MT6821 GATEWAY


Hi,

All you need to do is be sure whu will need to replace both.

If the problem is with either the charger/battery you will need to figure that out first.

Please have the battery charged of your laptop, and try using the laptop only with the battery and without the charger, If it works fine you will have to check the charger now.

In order to check the charger, please take out the battery from the laptop, now connect your charger to the laptop and try switching on the laptop. If it does not work then your charger is faulty.

You can purchase the accessories online at various portals. I am providing one of the portal information:

LAPTOP WILL NOT TURN ON . GATEWAY 8738. NO LEDS LIGHT ON FRONT. DOES NOTHING BATTERY IN BATTERY OUT. WILL NOT TURN ON. I SUSPECT MOTHER BOARD


You could well be correct but just to make sure.

You need to beg, borrow or steal another known good power supply/charger unit and see if that works. You see if yours in faulty, its not charging the battery or supplying power to the laptop.

If nothing glows after that it could be the charger circuit on *********** board or just the power connector on the motherboard .

if its not the power port then it could be a bad switch...or main board
