Unplug, remove battery, check for dust in fans and vents, plug in, try to reboot. If it powers up, open Control Panel, Power Options Power , set to High Performance, open Advanced Power settings, set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust other Advanced settings to your preference. Has it been pulled by the cord? If you have a multimeter check for DC volts at the AC jack plug, that plugs into the laptop. Is the Transformer (brick on the cord) getting warm when plug in? Does the battery charge LED light? Try another cord with the EXACT same power specs.

SOURCE: Burning smell on my laptop

Unless you have the ability to to replace the plug connector part yourself, you will have to take it in to a shop who can do that kind of fine soldering for you. If nothing else is damaged, it should be ok with replacing just that burnt out part.

SOURCE: I lost my power cord

You will need to buy another power cord for the exact model of your laptop. You can either find it in local computer stores, or you can search for it on ebay.com (usually search by laptop make & model, & usually buy from a top seller).

Battery won't hold charge


It most likely needs a new battery, but you could try giving the battery a full charge first:

1. Power off the laptop and disconnect the power adapter.
2. Re-seat the battery (remove/reinsert)
3. Reconnect the power adapter and let it charge overnight. (6 hr+)
4. Disconnect the power adapter.
5. Power on the laptop (run under battery power only)

If it doesn't boot up and shuts down immediately, it's probably time to see about a replacement battery.

Hi, my laptop crashes when the ac adaptor is plugged in yet it will charge the battery fine when the laptop is shut down.


Problem description: The laptop shuts off when AC power adapter is plugged in. The laptop works fine on battery power but as soon as you connect it to AC adapter, the laptop turns off.
Possible cause: 1. Power adapter failure.
2. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution: First of all, test the power adapter. Make sure the adapter outputs correct voltage. It's possible that the output voltage is not correct and the laptop shuts down to prevent the damage. Test your laptop with another known good power adapter.
If the problem still exists, even after replacing the adapter, most likely it's the motherboard failure. Replace the motherboard.

Gateway wont power up the batt has been failing ,if pluged in the charging light comes on for a while then goes out if you try to start it tries then shuts down. could a bad batt cause this


If your battery is more than 2 years old, then it is a distinct possibility. Every battery type has a certain number of charge cycles (drain->recharge->drain) or time period. Lithium batteries run about 2 to 3 (tops) years. NiMH run about 10,000 charge cycles (or it could be 50,000 cycles if you know what to do). But if you're NOT using the original Gateway charger, then plug it into your laptop and see if it works. The 3rd party charger may have burned out the internal power components over time. In the worst case, you'll have to replace either the motherboard (hope you still have the product key!) or the motherboard's power connector, inside the laptop. At best, you might have to continue using the original power adapter. It will probably turn out to be a worn down battery, which needs replacing.

Laptop wont turn on


Try removing the battery and plug in the power adapter and then power on your laptop. If this doesn't work, put the battery back in and plug in the power adapter and try turning it on. If that doesn't work then take the power cable out and try with only the battery. Try in this order and see if it comes back up, if not, you may have some dead hardware.

Sounds like your ac adapter (brick) is bad and not supplying correct voltage/amperage.
