This is usually a sign that the laptop isn't off and is actually in sleep/hibernation (a low powerstate to allow quick boots to your previous environment)

if you do not want to see this light click shutdown instead it may take slightly longer to boot up but it will not have unneeded processes running still

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite A15-S129 PC Notebook will not turn on

I have the same problem. What I have found with mine is that if I can get the battery to take just a little charge then I can get it up and running. Here is how I do it. Disconnect AC power leave the battery in and start the laptop. As soon as thing start to run I plug the AC back in and it works fine from there on. Now mine is flashing as well now and I have a dead battery and it will not restart. Something I have noticed thought is it appears that the yellow light is blinking a code. This is what I have come up with. I appears to be flashing 323 as the code or could be 2 shorts 1 long then 2 shorts and then 3 shorts.

Anyone know where to find info on these flashing codes.

Thanks

SOURCE: after shutdown of gateway laptop blue power button stays lit.....

Hi this sounds like your computer is in hibernation mode as opposed to shut down mode. Could you check and see as if running Vista many people assume that clicking on the brown power type selection under start that they are shutting down where as this actually only hibernation mode and clicking on the little arrow to the right of this and selecting shutdown is the way to go.
I hope this helps

SOURCE: dv9000 won't power on or charge. blue lightning bolt flashes

I just had this problem with my HP Pavilion dv9005us Notebook PC, and the problem is one of two things (that I know).

  1. Your'e Laptop's battery is completely empty, and needs to be plugged in to charge for an hour or two
  2. Or your laptop cord is broken, or isn't working properly.
For me, it was the secon problem. I went online searching for answers as to where I could buy a new cord for my Laptop. My previous one was universal, as the one that came with the notbook was chewed by my puppy. So Staples Canada, (or US) and Futureshop where the only places I could but this cord. They had the laptops on one wall, and the cords underneath them. In total, I paid $112.00, $89.99 plus tax, and $10 for an extended 2 year unlimited warranty. It sucked forking out the money, but I knew that I could trust the HP brand, and now have a working laptop.

Hope this helped (:

SOURCE: power comes on but screen stays black

The backlight inverter board may be bad, or worst case will be bad lamp. You should look to see if the cable comes off the inverter board first. You may learn maore here:

Gateway NV5337u Laptop worked yesterday, now only the blue lite comes on when plugged in. No fans or any other sounds.


We might need to talk more, to clarify to solve this promblem. First of all, have you done any update at all to the system? So by what you mean is that when you would go ahead and press the power on button, you get nothing at all... I mean dead, no lights, no fan, completely dead right? But when you have the charger plugged in, the battery light come on only saying it's charging? Is this blue light the battery indicator light, if it is, then that means your battery is fully charged. Try taking out your battery and just using the power adapter and press the power button to see if anything comes on, like fan, lights etc, then try it without the power adapter and only the battery. If you get nothing at all coming at all, I would assume your power button is bad or loose, or the wiring that connects to your powerbutton is loose because i have a gateway Nv series too, and the power button is located where the screen hinges is at, and I'm afraid that when opening and closing, it became loose. This happened to my Emachine, and all I did was took the plastic portion above the keyboard out, and followed the cable ribbon to see if it was loose, or became little disconnect. I kinda just tugged in a little bit and everything worked. I believe it may become loose. Now if the case is that the computer does power on and you get blinking lights, then we are looking at something else.

What is the correct battery for the BIOS memory for a Gateway model 4025GZ notebook ?


http://cgi.ebay.com/GENUINE-ACER-250-REAL-TIME-CLOCK-RTC-CMOS-BATTERY-/250619795738?pt=Laptop_Batteries&hash=item3a5a1a991a

Method.

When your Gateway computer is switched off, it still keeps track of various system information such as the date and time, thanks to a small battery that never powers off. The size and thickness of a dime, the CMOS battery can run out and need to be replaced. You can swap out a dead CMOS battery with a new one by removing the Gateway computer's side access panel.

Difficulty: Moderate
Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Phillips-head screwdriver

  • CMOS battery replacement

  1. 1

    Shut down the computer. Remove the power cable from the back of the computer case. Disconnect the cables for the monitor, mouse, keyboard, and printer.

  2. 2

    Set the computer case over on its side. Use the Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the two case screws at the far left end of the case.

  3. 3

    Slide the side access panel to the left and remove it from the computer case. Find the CMOS battery port, which will be located to the lower left of the processor in most Gateway computer models.

  4. 4

    Lift up the plastic clip holding the CMOS battery in place. Slide a fingernail under one side of the battery and lift it off the motherboard port.

  5. 5

    Check the orientation of the new battery and compare it to the CMOS motherboard port. Push the new battery into place in the same direction that the old battery was facing. Push down the plastic clip.

  6. 6

    Set the side access panel back onto the Gateway computer case and reattach the case screws. Plug in the Gateway computer and power it on.

Laptop will not power up.


  • If possible, make sure there is power coming from the power adaptor with a voltmeter. If nothing shows, the adaptor needs replacing or repairing.
  • Try removing the battery and running on the power adaptor alone. If this works the battery is dead. You can buy a new battery or just run it on the adaptor.

When you disconnected the camera, did you use the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your computer screen or did you just yank out the cord?

Gateway T-1625 Laptop won't boot up at all


It sounds like a motherboard issue. The fan spinning and the LED lights are running off of battery power. This indicates that power is getting to the system. You should look into replacing the motherboard at this point. Before you replace the motherboard feel your system to see if there are any really hot spots that would indicate overheating. If not proceed with the replacement. If so, let me know where the hot spot is.

Gateway 450ROG laptop does not boot


I have a similar problem with my 450rog but I get 3 beeps on startup - everything runs: fan and drives but the screen is blank and the computer dead.
