I have 2 gateway ML6227b laptops. It started with 1 then the other started.The power connection doesn not work. Its not the battery as my son and I swapped batteries and i'd charge his up while he used my battery as his connection was the first to go. Then mine went and now we cant charge either laptop up or sit connected to a power sourse. Has anyone any ideas how to solve this please

Re: gateway laptop wont connect to power
The only thing you can really do in this case is call gateway and see if they can repair this. it seems like something internal. Hopefully the computers are still under warranty. Sorry for the bad news.

1. It could be bad connection of Memory, CPU, Graphic-cards etc. Try to reseat them aswell.
2. Have you tried replacing the power-unit?
3. Some BIOS es are a bit 'stupid', do you have a fairly new and working monitor plugged in directly (bypassing KVMs)?
Worst case is 'BGA-slip', the bridge-chips and/or onboard GPU has some broken solderings, typically happens to Laptops.
The fan turning off will be the cause of the PC shutting down. This could be caused by a faulty fan or bad connection to motherboard. 1. try reseating the fans power plug on the motherboard 2. if that doesn't help, try replacing with new fan. 3. if that doesn't work then most likely motherboard problem
It sounds like your laptop BUS (usb power) does not have enough power to power the interface between the two. I had a couple of devices that did that. You may have to buy a SELF powered USB HUB in order to make them connect. The self powered usb will get it's power from and A/C wall outlet and not the laptop. You will connect you device to hub and hub to laptop.
hi gllwymiller; 1.check all your connections 2.check monitor and cpu power 3.when you power on your cpu, do you actually hear the fan turning or see your power led light up? 4. what OS are you using? 5. Feel the rear fan or your CPU, is it blowing out air?
First off, the 1394 connection is a firewire connetion. Firewire is a less popular and slower alternative to USB 2.0 connections. Disregard that in respect to your internet connection.
Now in regards to your desktop internet connection....
-Go to the control panel, select network connections, then local area connection.
-Right click and select properties
-Under the general tab scroll down to Internet protocal (tcp/ip)
Make sure the settings are set to automatically obtain an IP address. If they are and still are not working you can try to manually assign an IP address yourself.
The laptops ip address might be something like 192.168.1.2
so whatever your laptop ip address is make the desktop 1 number higher in the last field (192.168.1.3 for example). Don't change any numbers other than the last field.
You can find out the other information like subnet mask and default gateway by using the laptop. On the laptop go to the start menu, hit run. Then type in cmd, this will bring up a dos prompt. Then finally type IPCONFIG .
Listed will be the laptops active internet connections and it's IP addresses. Copy over the subnet mask IP address and the default gateway address into the desktop and like in the previous step just manually assign the desktop a different IP address 1 number higher than the laptop.
If the dns server's address isn't listed on the laptop a quick call to your dsl provider will solve that question.
