Either:

A) Bad battery

Easy to check, take it out and try to boot. If yes. Get a new battery.

If no.

B) Bad AC adapter

Does the power brick have an LED on it? Is it on. Even if it is it may not be putting out voltage. If the cord gets bent alot it can break inside so it looks normal. If you or some you know has a MultiMeter , have them check the voltage.If you know someone with the same laptop, try theirs. If it works get a new one.

C) Broken connector inside laptop
If a known working AC adapter doesnt work there could be a broken connector inside that needs to be resoldered or the power subsystem on the board could be fried.

    Mine is doing the same thing with the C) option...sorta. I removed the battery, plugged the known working AC adapter in. Power light glows blue, as it should, other parts of the keyboard light up, but the screen is blank. What's going on?

  • Billy Kidd Apr 13, 2011

    It could be a number of things but I'd start out with this sequence:

    1) Bad inductor
    2) Bad screen
    3) Defect in motherboard. (On mine there were 2 metal clips that held a cable in place. They came loose inside the machine and shorted a zener diode and inverter.

    One thing to test, plug in an external monitor, does that work? It did on mine.

Won't boot it only has the battery light blinking


Remove the main battery and try to power up the computer, a bad battery in some cases will prevent the laptop from restarting.

Why does my gateway nv53 battery light blink while charging?


Hi, The LED light on your Gateway NV53 Blinks while charging because it was designed to do so. According to the user manual, if the battery light is:
Solid Orange: Battery is fully charged Blinking Orange: Battery is charging Blinking Red: Battery is critically low Solid Red: Battery problems, contact Gateway support immediately.

Will not power up. trying to turn on and just the red battery light flashes


blinking red light with battery icon means that you are running out of battery power. if the computer is plugged in to the wall and it still does the same thing you may have to replace the ac adapter or charger. the charger should have a green light on it to indicate it is getting power.

Doesnt stat up and no light showing charge


Hi,
Here's one way to determine the problem.
Take the battery out and try to boot on AC power only, if it boots turn it back off, reinsert the battery again and try to boot.
Sometimes you just have to take the battery out and plug it back in again, with others it is the battery and you have to leave then out until a replacement is bought.
If it still won't boot on AC only, remove and reinsert the memory, try to boot the computer and listen for any beeps.
Post back if you need further assistance.


Good luck.

Red light on the front blinks 4 times


Hi,

The 4 blinks are telling you that there is a fault. The same as Computer Bios Beeps.
I,d suggest removing the RAM/Memory, and replacing it. Press and hold the power button for more than 4 seconds, to ensure it isn,t in standby mode. failing this remove the cpu and re-seat it as it may be slightly out of position, or out of it,s socket. finally have a look at the back or underside to see if there is a reset switch/hole.

Gateway not turning on with or without battery/AC adaptor


these people are right and there is definitely some hardware issues with your computer...which can be repaired but not really worth the money or effort.
