Question about Gateway M305CRV Notebook

Gateway M305 Laptop

I was operating my comptuer off the battery and then went later to ac power. When I turned my laptop on and after a few minutes I noticed that I was getting a low battery alarm even though I was using ac so I turned my laptop over and disingaged the battery and the computer turned off. So than when I went to reboot with just the ac plugged in and no battery it booted with a no screen at all, black. I have it hooked up to an external monitor right now and it works fine.

Could I have fried the inverter/backlight or monitor its self when I removed the battery while it was running?

Check to see if the monitor shows up in the device manager. Right click 'my computer' click 'manage' click 'device manager' look for any yellow question marks beside the 'monitors' heading.It is possible there might be a loose connection. You should take it to a shop (unless you comfortable dismanteling your laptop) and have them check it out. I hope this helps. Let me know how you made out, and please rate my answer. Good luck!

Will not power on


MPC has since dissolved, leaving thousands of customers without dedicated support when their Gateway laptop won't start.

Remove the AC adapter from the laptop and attempt to boot the laptop from battery alone. Attempt to turn on the laptop.
Replace the AC adapter and remove the battery from your laptop.
Ensure the adapter is plugged in. Attempt to turn on the laptop.


Disconnect the AC adapter and leave the battery removed from the laptop.
Hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
Nothing should happen on the screen.
Reconnect the AC adapter to the laptop.
Attempt to power on the laptop.
If the laptop boots, replace the battery once the operating system loads.

Try the process again with a new AC adapter and battery if possible.
Contact Gateway support if you aren't a former MPC customer.
Alternatively, take the laptop to a computer specialist if it still won't start.

Today my cord for my toshiba was behind my pillow and i was lying on it. and I didnt notice, but then it showed that my laptop wasnt charging did my cord just get too hot? will it work later?


The power adapter does not have a temperature sensitive device, therefore it won't stop for overheating if not in consequence of a fault.

Try leaving the power adapter unplugged for about ten minutes.
In the meanwhile also remove laptop battery and put it back.
Connect it back to AC and laptop.
Ensure that connection to laptop and power cord connection to AC adapter box are both well plugged.
Before turning on laptop leave it connected for few minutes.
If laptop still does not turn on and battery does not charge, then the AC adapter is faulty.
A further test can be done using a multimeter to read voltage on AC adapter plug.

A replacement AC adapter is not expensive and can be purchased online. Try entering in Google your Toshiba model followed by the words "power adapter".

Hi there.
Take the battery out and try to boot on AC power only, if it boots up, turn it back off and reinsert the battery and try to boot again.
If it still suffers from the same symptoms please post back for more advice.


Good luck

My dell gateway M305 doesn't hold a charge. If i take it off ac power for even a minute it will notify me of critical battery power, then power down shortly afterwards. Can anyone help?


Replace the Battery.

(Have it tested first to be sure that's the problem)

If you find that the battery is functioning properly, then the problem is your AC Power Adapter (power cord) so replace whichever one doesnt work.........in otherwords, take it to any place that sells dells, ask them to test your battery vs a new one, and your power cord as well!

Try running it just on battery. Then take the battery out and just run if off the adapter. see what happens..and call Gateway and complain..if it doesn't run off the adapter then you really need to call gateway..cause you're stuck without a working computer.
