If you are on the budget for a new Gateway charger you may try the third party charger, it is cheap with a year warranty:

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.

Battery is not charging with new adapter


Clean battery terminals with a stiff toothbrush, plus the new battery. If no change! charge circuits need to be checked for output voltage, if okay! new battery is defective, If no! the charge circuits in the motherboard are the issue "very rare"

Describe your Gateway M675 Laptop w/ Pentium4 Gateway M675 won't maintain a charge after charging and the display flicks from ac/dc until the battery is completely empty. Do I need a new battery or power...


Sounds like you need a new power adapter.The M675 needs the correct voltage constantly to work correctly.I'm using one right now and it does the same thing with the wrong adapter or a weak adapter(low voltage).M675 is a great laptop but with the 3.0ghz its got to get the power it needs especially when its under a heavy load.

I'm having the same exact problem 3 times. I sent my laptop to gateway 3 times for the same problem, the 3rd time they have to extend my warrenty. Then it happen the 4 time and gateway would not fix it....


Don't know exactly what is your problem, but I assume it is related to power issues. Please find below my recommendations:

First of all, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to 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. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

I'm trying to fix a gateway MFATXNIN NMZ 500SE


Check the adapter with a multi-meter to see if there is voltage at the plug that connects into the laptop. The oltage reading should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the adapter.
Try to borrow an adapter (same as yours) and connect it to your laptop. Also try removing the battery and power up the laptop without the battery but with the adapter connected (could be a battery problem).

Gateway M305 power adapter replaced by Gateway. Now blue screen


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.
