Sounds like the AC jack has been damaged, due to pulling on the cord. Why is the monitor loose? Dropped? Has it had a hard life?

    the screen is loose most likely from being used so much.

SOURCE: Gateway laptop powers up but screen does not come up.

See if you can attach an external monitor to your laptop.If you can and you can see your display on the monitor the it is a faulty laptop screen .If you see nothing on the x monitor then the graphic card/chip is fried.

SOURCE: screen on my laptop will not work. Black screen.

Test if it works on external monitor. If it does, then turn the computer on, remove the battery, then reinsert the battery. That little trick has worked several times for me and my customers. If the external monitor does NOT work, then you probably have a bad video chip in the computer's motherboard.... by the time you fix it, you could almost by a new machine.

SOURCE: Gateway NV52 Laptop charger sound.

I don't know if this will work with Vista but in Windows 7 you can go to the speaker icon in the taskbar and click on the icon above the volume control. This will take you to the sound properties. Click the levels tab and mute the PC speaker. This worked for me.

Clock resetting and power button malfunctioning on my Gateway NV53A laptop.


Replace the CMOS battery. In the Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, open Advanced power settings, set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust other settings to your preference. Set Screen Saver Time. Always turn off the computer and unplug when not in use, it will prolong life and a reboot every day will reset the computer. I would say you have a issue with the outlet connections/plug. If you have a multimeter you can verify.

It isn't charging


For this kind of issue, please follow up the following steps to check:

confirm the battery and ac adapter connect the laptop normally.Maybe the bad connect lead to this problem. If there are no lights when you turn on laptop, one of possible reason is that your adapter is malfunction.

the second possible cause is laptop dc jack failure. If the dc jack is broken or loose, you are required to replace it or repair it.

Another possible reason is that there is something wrong with laptop motherboard. For this situation, it includs two kinds of possibility,a failure in an electronic circuit and BGA malfunction.

For more detailed reasons and solutions, please have a look at the following article:http://www.ifitjams.com/lappower.htm

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


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.

The socket where you plug the charger into the laptop is loose and now will not charge. where can i send it to be fixed and how much will it cost? I am in Niagara falls, ONtario


Hi
This is typically caused by tension on the plug. For instance, you allow the charger to dangle and hang on the plug. This causes poor contact and the socket gets hot and melts.
If you go to the manufacturers they will charge you for a new mainboard. Your best bet is to take it into a local TV/Hi-Fi repair shop and get a quote.
