SOURCE: gateway computer wont turn on

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Will not charge. Keeps saying that it does not detect a battery. Sometimes says that it is plugged in and not charging. What should I do?


If your battery has been installed for a long time [and never removed] you can get CORROSION build-up on your terminals [as with any battery]. This will quite often prevent correct charging from happening.
Try removing your battery and cleaning the metal terminals [also clean the contact points in your computer for the same reason].
High humidity work-place situations can also cause this problem.
OR your battery may be at the end of its "useful life" [around 2 years or so if constantly used without an AC power source]; so you may need to replace your battery.
Most battery suppliers can TEST your battery for you ... ok

My gateway laptop N214 will not turn on. The orange light at the bottom of the screen flashes but it will not turn on.


Unplug the power cord. Remove the battery and hold the power button for 30 to 60 seconds. Re-connect the power and attempt a boot. Shut down, put the battery back in and you're good to go. This advice was on another site, but helped me with a computer startup issue once

My gateway laptop won't come on


for a no power issue there are three major component that can cause it: defective memory, defective motherboard, defective processor.
components that could affect the computer in booting: external devices: remove all
hard drive and optical drive: remove it too
if there are any pci card or any card installed in computer remove it. after removing all component and only the motherboard is left alone you should be getting some behavious which will indicate your computer is still alive: you will get to hear a beeping sound, a display error message that no memory is detected. if it doesnt turn on then the motherboard is dead
