Question about Gateway 450ROG Notebook

2 Answers

I dropped my laptop and now the battery will not charge.

I accidentally dropped my Gateway laptop and I guess it broke the internal part you plug the charger into it. The computer itself works fine and the charger worked for a few days as long as you held the charger cord to the side real tight but it eventually stopped charging.

Do you know the name of the part I need to replace to fix my computer?

Most likely its the DC Power Jack. Happened to me. You can find the part online by searching for "450ROG DC Jack" and then just resolder yourself or take it to a repair shop.

If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Gateway kav60 not charging. i have to wiggle the cord and sometimes it refuses to charge.


I guess you've got a broken laptop power dc jack or power cable.


Symptoms of a broken Laptop DC power jack:


- The laptop only operates when you hold the DC power plug in a certain direction (DC jack is broken or loose).
- The laptop only runs on battery power (no power is getting through the DC jack).
- The laptop gets no power at all.
- The laptop will not charge the battery.
- The laptop switches from AC power to battery power intermittently due to a loose or broken power jack.
- The laptop suddenly shuts off.
- The DC jack may feel loose.
- Sparks come out of the back of the laptop when you insert the power plug into the DC jack.

My Gateway NV5386u battery died and the computer shutdown. When I tried plugging it in, it still would not turn on. The adapter part of the charger has a green light, indicating power is being applied, but...


Often when a battery is real flat, it hangs up the entire system. What you need to do, is remove the battery completely, as the laptop should be able to be powered by the AC adapter itself. You may find if that is the case that your battery has gone bad, and you will have to replace it. If your laptop, will NOT work from the AC adapter, then either the adapter is faulty, or there is an internal vault, in the Power conditioning circuitry inside the PC. Try another adapter, if still no go, then it is definitely an internal problem.

Dropped my gateway laptop. Now it wont charge battery.


If you do not have either a manufacturer warranty or extended warranty from the retailer use it now. Contact them. Avoid telling them that you dropped the computer...you will void a manufacturer warranty. If you don't have either option then you can continue portability with an external laptop battery. They tend to be heavy, but they tend to provide 5 or more hours of portable use. The extended battery plugs into the same socket as your regular external power supply. I have included some links for product options.
