My Gateway laptop, NE56R1u, shuts down automatically when unplugged even though fully charged?


Dear Leslie,

I had the very same problem with a HP Pavillion DV4 laptop and the problem was inside the battery - one of its cells became defective and the charge did not last more than a few seconds - it also showed a 100% charged icon but the battery was depleted in seconds.

Before buying a brand new battery you could check with a friend that has a similar laptop if he/she can lend you his/her battery for a few minutes and check whether the laptop keeps on or not with that other battery. In the case it remains on, it is the battery for sure, and you will need to buy a replacement one. Check the link below, for one option.

Hope you may find this information useful!

Best regards,

Miguel L. Martins

Acer aspire 5740 no power


Hello,

It sounds lie the charger jack in the laptop is broken. When you installed the new battery the laptop had power to run several hours but once the battery drained it could not be charged back up. Check the charging jack when the charger plugs into. I would bet that you will find to loose or broken. These jacks can be replaced but you will need to take the laptop apart and do a little soldering to do the job. Check Ebay for the jack, you can do a search for your model laptop along with "power jack", the parts should run less than $10 with shipping.

My gateway 4525 battery is 95% charged but won't tune the computer


Computer does not boot upThe problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needsreseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up thenremove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop andget them to test the RAM for you.

How can remove the battery from gateway cx 2618


  1. Close the LCD panel.
  2. If your notebook is on and connected to AC power, or has a charged multi-bay battery installed, go to Step 4. If your notebook is on, is not plugged into an AC outlet, or does not have a charged multi-bay battery installed, save your work, and then shut down Windows® and turn off the computer.
  3. Turn your notebook over so that the bottom is facing up.
  4. If the notebook is equipped with a battery lock, slide it to the unlocked position.
  5. Slide the battery release latch, and then slide the battery out of the bay.
  6. Slide the new battery into the bay until it snaps into place.
  7. If the notebook is equipped with a battery lock, slide the battery lock to the locked position.
  8. Turn the notebook over.
  9. Reconnect the optional port replicator.
  10. Open the LCD panel and press the power button.

How many hours to charge a new acer 4738?, mine is too long to charge, is it natural if new?


A brand new battery has to be charged for 8 hours.For any battery related issue, a reset or calibration can be done.Just drain all the charge in the battery by using the laptop only on battery power( ie,with the Charger/Adaptor disconnected).After the comp shuts down due to no power,then charge the battery for 8-10 hours and then check if its fully getting charged or not
At times a BIOS update can fix battery related issues.

Dell Inspiron E1505 won't recognize new battery


It won't charge or work correctly if it's not the correct one and of the right voltage etc.I don't know how the battery even went in if it's not the Dell specified battery.If it went in and looked to fit maybe the battery itself is bad but its hard to say.

Gateway laptop problem


It might have overheated. Let it rest for an hour and try again. Also make sure the AC adapter is keeping the battery charged.
