GATEWAY LAPTOPS NOT CHARGING...WE NEED TO GET FILE COMPLAINTS WITH BOTH BBB AND GATEWAY AND THEN SUE THEM IF NOTHING HAPPENS...

I TOO HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY GATEWAY LAPTOP -THAT A LOT OF THE POSTS CONCERNING GATEWAYS SEEM TO BE HAVING. I TOO HAVE PURCHASED NUMEROUS BATTERIES AND AC ADAPTERS BUT TO NO AVAIL. I HAVE FOUND OUT THE PROBLEM !!! THE FEMALE PART THAT THE AC ADAPTER CONNECTS TO - INSIDE THE COMPUTER ON THE MOTHERBOARD - IS AT FAULT. IT IS EITHER A BAD PIECE THAT SHOULD BE RECALLED OR GATEWAY HAS INTENTIONALLY MADE THESE PIECES WEAKER IN ORDER FOR THE COMPUTER TO FAIL AND FORCE THE CONSUMER TO PURCHASE SERVICE FROM THEM OR BUY A NEW COMPUTER. REGARDLESS SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE. PLEASE JOIN ME IN FILING A COMPLAINT WITH BOTH THE BBB IN YOUR AREA OR ONLINE, AND FILE A COMPLAINT WITH GATEWAY. THIS PROBLEM SHOULD NOT EXISIT. THANK YOU !!!

I have had the same problem with TWO Gateway laptops, one of which I had less than a year (ML6714). Currently, it is supposedly being repaired. A typical repair 7-14 days. It's been over a month and the only response I get is "I would suggest calling back in approximately 5 business days for an updated status as this is the only information we have available at this time"

You can take the laptop to a laptop shop & have them resolder the power plug to the mother board or purchase a new motherboard.

What can I do when you can't get a refund you have paid for and had to return.


Try contacting the Better Business Bureau or the State Attorney General's office where the company is located. Did you pay with a credit card?? If so, dispute the charge with the credit card company--but file the dispute SOON.

You can try writing a complaint letter addressed to the CEO of the company and show that you are sending a copy of the letter to the Better Business Bureau and the State Attorney General. Be sure to state all the facts of your purchase, any pertinent dates, why the item was returned, who you talked to or corresponded with at the company, copies of any of your correspondence, anything that will help the agencies follow up. To show you are serious, send it Certified Mail with a Return Receipt Required. (I was able to get a dishwasher replaced when warranty work repeatedly failed and the service company refused to replace the machine after more than three service calls within a certain period of time. I located the CEO of the company and sent him a letter explaining everything that happened, and all the times that the dishwasher was out of service...he shipped us a brand new one!)

How can I cancel this membership and get a refund for the $99.00?


If the charge on your statement has a telephone number, call it. If you can use a recorder do that. They will likely try high-pressure techniques and may even refuse to refund the charge but this step is necessary before you call your credit card issuer. They can stop the charge and refund your money. Afterward, file a complaint with your local BBB or on-line with the city of the scammer, if you know it. Do NOT do do nothing. That will result in more charges.
(This is from personal experience. I have been battling these weasels for years and have a phony magazine subscription I am working on now,)

Is The Rx Helper a real business or a scam


Part of a Better Business Bureau report on the company -- Our files contain a pattern of complaints from consumers that allege that RX Helper fails to issue refunds after they have cancelled their accounts. Other consumers complain about wanting to cancel their services due to lack of correspondence and poor customer service from The Rx Helper.

The Rx Helper generally responds to these complaints by referring the consumer to their refund policy.
On October 15, 2013, BBB sent correspondence to The Rx Helper requesting their voluntary cooperation in resolving complaints on file with BBB and providing steps it will implement to eliminate the pattern of customer complaints.
- See more at: http://www.bbb.org/south-east-florida/business-reviews/prescription-benefit-consultants/the-rx-helper-in-lake-worth-fl-90047495#sthash.QWGh7cLw.dpuf

Basically the BBB says after all their attempts to resolve the problems RX Helper has still not changed.

The zynga poker banned my account,i had 4000000chips no i can not open,why is that i bought the chip with the money if u dont open my accoun i will sue all the comapny


Hello,

Let me go over your threat first then, I will tell you who we are.

1. "if u don't open my account i will sue all the comapny"

First off we are fixya.com you found us by googling witch every internet user does when they want to file a complaint or three.

2."The zynga poker banned my account"

Did you write zynga and tell them your issues with there game?

You might want to consider writing them here is the LINK to write them.

Since you did mentioned you got Banned letm e ask you this?

Did you do something wroung on there site? Why you got so many chips?

Ask yourself this, Did I hack? Did I commit or break a rule or a few?

Also you might want to beware of what site your threaten it could end you up in some serious battles with the law you might not want to deal with. The word SUE "take to court", unless you plan on doing it is a threat and really ro the best of my legal knowledge might end you in a deeper situation then a banned account.

Here is some tips

1. Write the company
2. Call the company
3. call you bank if you feel there are unauthorized charges.

File a complaint with the BBB "better business", use www.consumerist.com but using harsh words and other forms of legal language might end you up in court.

good Luck and Thanks for using fixya.com

My laptop wont turn on


Does the battery charge? Or does nothing happen at all? If nothing at all happens then it is your motherboard and you need to replace the board

GATEWAY LAPTOPS NOT CHARGING...WE NEED TO GET FILE COMPLAINTS WITH BOTH BBB AND GATEWAY AND THEN SUE THEM IF NOTHING HAPPENS...


I was told by the computer repair company the connection is arching back and shorting out the chargers. To have a connection replaced would be $150 so that is what we are going to do. We have gone through 4 chargers on our gateway also.

  1. USIN CAPZ MAK U LUK IGNORANT
  2. Contact gateway. Let them know you have seen multiple reports of this online
    and you believe this should be repaired under manufactures warranty.
  3. Stop threatening to sue any/everyone because you don't like them.
    This never bodes well and creates a negative vibe for the person who will try to help you!

I took mine in to the Sanyo authorized repair shop and they found the screen itself was bad. Sanyo sells the new screen for $1100, almost double what I paid for it. The repair tech said they do that intentionally.
