Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
I have a used Gateway M350WVN laptop, when I got it I was told it will probably need a new battery, which I did get and try to charge.
If I have only the AC Adapter plugged in the laptop will not power up at all and there are no lights on the front of my laptop.
If I have the battery in and the ac adapter plugged in, the battery light goes orange and there is a faint light where the ac light is. When I hit the power button, it turns on for a second and then all lights go out. Sometimes they come back on in a minute or two and sometimes I have to unplug the ac adapter to get them back on.
When I first got the replacement battery I had it working for 45 minutes and it died on me. It also has a new ac adapter. I am hoping this won't be an expensive fix.
It may need to be left on charge for a while...
when u first boot by pressing power wait for a minute or so and press and hold power button til shut down then try reboot..also try boot from disk....need to distinguish whether motherboard or software issue.
