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.

My computer literally turned off on itself for the first time in the middle of doing something on the computer. Now it is not turning on. Nothing is happening. The battery is charged and everything.


Yes i have scrapped a couple of gateways doing this. It seems to be the charging circuit in the motherboard. it appears to be charging but its not. Try running it with no battery and just on the mains. If it continues to work ok then its the charging circuit and the motherboard needs replacing. Also bear in mind Gateway went bust a few years ago so dont know where you would get a replacement.

My Gateway M-6847 will not turn on. When I press the power button the wireless light and power button light just flashes quickly. Also the battery light in front stays lit while plugged in.


Hi

silly question sorry
but have you charged the battery or plugged the power cord into plug and switched on to try to charge the battery for a couple of hrs without using the laptop

Check the video card and the memory. REmove the screws in the back and make sure that they are seated properly.

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.

Unfortunately, you can't solve this problem. What I have learned as the tech working on a customers gateway mt6451 is that Gateway dropped the ball when they bought a cheap (they spent 5 cents instead of 20 cents) motherboard component that allows the adapter to charge battery and run the notebook without the battery installed, the component seems to have a 1 year if that life. I am surprised they haven't been sued or forced to extend the warranty (like HP had to with their dv8000 series notebooks) althought they would have to replace the motherboard with one that has an improved component on it. How do you sue a company or force them to extend the warranty for a replacement that is made with a better component?

  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!
