    my gateway worked fine all night but seemed to be a bit warmer than it usually ran , i shut it off and went home , it had cooled down but when I plugged it in and turned it on a few hours later it said unable to charge and then when dead , asuming it was the cord , I replaced it properly , but it still wouldn't turn on , the red indicator light just blinks like when the battery is dead. could my computer just need a new battery or should it still turn on? It was used alot and is about two yrs old, I had also noticed the battery life was not near as long as it used to be, what should I do ?

    My Gateway MT6839b was plugged into the mains and being used when the screen suddenly went blank and the mains/battery lights went out. It has since failed to fire up at all. My local repair shop can't help but says all internal parts seem to be working properly. If the motherboard has gone, should this have happened on a laptop little more than 18 months old?

Does the battery charge? Or does nothing happen at all? If nothing at all happens then it is your motherboard and you need to replace the board

I have a gateway notebook model #mt6451 i turned it off last night and i turned it back on this morning and the screen wasnt coming on the power button lite up cd made noise fan working and hard drive...


First thing to try:

Remove your battery and charger, hold the power button for 10-15 seconds. Plug the laptop into mains ONLY leaving the battery out. Try powering it up.

If the laptop powers up ok, simply shut-down and re-insert your battery. You should find your laptop will continue to work fine for the foreseeable future, this kind of issue is a common occurrence on laptops.

If not I would then try re-seating your RAM/Memory, if that doesn't work and you have more than one stick remove one at a time to see if either one is causing the problem. If you have only one stick find a replacement to test your laptop with.

If you are still finding the same issues with the laptop I would then proceed to reseat all components of laptop, including the CPU.

If the issues continue I would then remove all non-essential components one by one, each time attempting to power the laptop. At worst you will eventually end up with just the mainboard, CPU, RAM and an external monitor plugged into the mainboard, that still doesn't function correctly. I would then conclude your mainboard needs replacing.

Seems to be a problem of not enough power.

First check the voltage output of the charger(adapter) and match it with its specs.


Also try to reset the hardware using the following steps:

1 Disconnect battery and the charger
2 Let it sit for 1-2 minutes.
3 Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
4 Reconnect battery and charger and try to start by pressing the power button.

Turned off PC one night working fine. Next time try to use, PC wont boot. No video display, no bios, no posts, nothing. Gateway Desktop GT 5464 w/ integrated video, Intel E2140 Processor, Intel 945GC Mobo....


Have you tried booting it from yor CD drive with bootable software?

Any led flashing anywhere in the computer?

If not, we are talking about energy problem. Try fitting the energy cord firmly, try connecting the battery charger in a different power outlet.

Gateway MX8711 Battery Won't Charge


As long as the laptop still works on AC then your battery is probably dead. It is a few years old already so it probably wasnt far from the end of its useful life anyway.

Try not to drain laptop batteries down all the way to zero - Its best to always have some charge in them to extend the life.
