Question about Gateway CX2610 Notebook

3 Answers

Gateway Cx2610 I have a Gateway Cx2610 that the power jack is not working at all. There is no other way to charge the battery. I took it to a technician and he said I have to buy a new motherboard to fix the power jack. I wonder if anyone know if there is external battery charger for the laptop or how will i fix this problem without changing the motherboard Thanks Honest

I also have a cx2610 but mine works most of the time, if your good with a soldering iron the points on it might be broke and they are quite easy to resolder

Hi, There is another solution. You can have the DC Jack repaired. This is a very common job. The person who told you that you need a new motherboard obviously has no experience with repairing Laptops. M

You DO NOT need to replace the motherboard. Laptop jack can be replaced. This place can do it for you, you ship your laptop to them, they replace your jack, then send it back. It costs $99. A lot cheaper than a new motherboard! And so you know, I am not affiliated with them in any way.

Gateway nv52 won't charge

It sounds like you either have a dead mother board or a bad power inlet. Did the machine work with the new battery while it was charged? If so, then the battery connector was good and the inlet was bad. If not, your motherboard could be dead. I've also seen where a bad battery connector would syphon off enough power to not power on the machine or charge the battery.

No connection with the DC Jack on Gateway 3550GZ

It's time to take the computer to a qualified technician, for proper trouble-shooting & repair, because there are very-few "user-repairable" parts inside a laptop/notebook computer.

I have acquired a Gateway MX 3563 Laptop. It will not run off the power adaptor or charge the battery. The power adapter is new as is the battery. I am a certified Apple Technician.

Use your Apple tools and equipment to open this puppy up.  The IC power port has gone bad.  Check on e-bay for a parts/repair laptop you can purchase for cheap to pull parts off of.

Motherboard or DC Jack Problem???

i agree with your logic and think its a good idea to get the jack soldered to the the motherboard before anything else is replaced and would hardly cost anything too

Stopped turning on

I had the same problem so I played around with the plug by rotating the plug on the jack, so if you remove it and plug it in with a different position it works for me. But the battery does not charge well anymore...
