Question about Gateway 450ROG Notebook
My Gateway works on battery but will not run on A/C.... It is not the converter battery charger. Has to be somethin blown inside. I use an external battery charger and it works..... Any ideas?
Your DC Jack Is Most Likely Failing From What You Describe....
The DC Jack Is The Port Where Your Charger Cord Plugs Into..
If Wiggled Enough, It Will Pry Loose From The Motherboard And Eventually It Will Begin To Short Out The Power, If Left Unrepaired, It Will Eventually Lose All Means Of Charging/Powering On Due To The Solder Being Burnt Away From The Positive Pins That Connect To The Mainboard....
You Might Want To Test Your AC Adapter With A Multimeter For Positive Power and Correct Voltage .. Sometimes A Broken Cord Will test Good If The Break Is Making Contact when testing....
So When Testing the cord... Slightly wiggle it to see if indeed there is a break in it or not...
