Try another cord. If you have a multimeter ,verify voltage at the AC jack plug the inserts into the computer.

SOURCE: My computer won,t turn on

2x2 or 2x4 Power Connector Not Plugged In
If the power supply cable with the 2x2 connector or 2x4 connector (depending on your desktop board), is not plugged into the 12V processor core voltage connector located near the processor socket, the system will not boot up. You will see lights onboard and on the chassis front panel and the processor fan will spin, but nothing will appear on the monitor. See figures below for cable placement.

  • Make sure the fans on the processor are connected properly and running.
  • Make sure that the thermal interface material or the thermal grease is applied to the processor properly.
  • Make sure that the power supply fan is running properly and any other external case fans are running properly.
  • Make sure that the air intakes for the external fans are unobstructed and have at least several inches away from walls and other items.

    SOURCE: my gateway profile 4 desktop will not power on.


    Remove the power cord and then take out the battery. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds, then plug in just the AC powercord and try turn the laptop on.

    If it turns on let it boot into the operating system and then shut it down and put the battery back in.

    Hopefully this will resolve the problem but if it doesn't turn on again with the battery in there is a problem with the battery.

    Post back if you need more advice.

    Good luck.

    SOURCE: My gateway profile 5 won't turn on. Checked plugs

    Try to power drain it. Unplug all the power related devices that are connected, like a monitor data cable or external printer, just unplug all the cables in the back after you shut down your computer, press the power switch of your computer and keep it pressed for about 45 secs, release it, plug everything back and check it if its working. As well double check if that particular socket is usable, plug something else in to see if its working.

    How do I install gateway GMAX2100 speakers to gateway computer

    Hi Angela, first find the green plug and connect it in to your headphone inlet (if you are using a laptop, it usually comes on its right side of, if you are using a desktop, then it could come on its back). Plug each little speaker in to the red and white plugs located at back of the largest box/speaker. Set your speakers control next to you, plug the power cord, turn on your speakers systems, adjust volume at middle turn on your computer... And enjoy it!

    Seems more like a problem with the power receptacle where you plug the power cord into the laptop.In order to fix this problem, you will need to disassemble the unit to get access to the motherboard & replace the power receptacle with a good one.

    Gateway yellow power button, nothing starts, no fan, nothing. opened up computer and see mobo led light is lit. newton ps has a test button. tried to test with various components plugged in and the test...

    Power supply has several voltages. Just because the 5v power is active doesn't mean all the voltages are OK. You need to have the power supply tested for 12v and 3.3v. A quick test is to unplug all the wires from the power supply. There is a single green wire on the motherboard main plug. Connect (use a bent paper clip) that green switch wire and any black wire. Plug in the power supply and it should run (fan starts)

    I have a gateway ma7 laptop and press power and get nothing

    When the computer is off, unplug the power cord from the laptop and then plug it back in. See if the charge light (lightning bolt symbol next to the led) comes on or turns green/blue. If it doesn't your power supply may not be working, even if the light on the supply is on. Second is the battery may be damaged. Remove the battery and see if you can power on at all.
    If it boots with only the cord, the battery is bad/shorted forcing shutdown.

    No signs of power on my gateway mt3705

    The power supply provides only 48V (or what ever is listed on the back) but the computer breaks out +12 -12 +5 -5 etc and if that power regulator is damaged it will not come on.
    Remove the battery and unplug, hold the power button on for 2-3 minutes, plug in ONLY the power cord and press the power button.
    Most likely if you don't get any text on the screen the internal power regulator/converter is damaged.
