I have a Gateway solo 9550 laptop. When I turn it on it says ERROR Invalid system configuration data- run configuration utility. What exactly is wrong? Windows boots up when I press f1. How do I stop this...


You usually gets this message when you leave the system unplugged for a long period of time. Whe the internal battery drained out the system loses the configuration data. Normally the internal battery will get recharged when you plug the power back. Just have to go into the BIOS and set the date back to the current date. In some case the internal battery needs to be replaced if no longer holds a charge.

I need the size or model number for a replacement charger for the gateway solo 9550.


Compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery.

It'll not help you, due to symptoms of ailing hard drive.
Go to your BIOS and see if there any Hard Drive status check (like S.M.A.R.T.)
If not, get somewhere (DOS based) HDD test that will run from CD/USB without Windows running.

Gateway Solo 9550 will not power on at all.


first you would try the least expensive
make sure your ac adpater works
the plug could be bad on the end
next is the pin inside the dc jack where you plug it in, if the pin moves just a little , you may need a new dc jack sold on ebay cheap
make sure the battery is out when testing
