Are you talking about the power plug that is connected to the motherboard? A good tech can solder it off from the motherboard and replace it with a new one. Note that too much heat is not good for the motherboard and a experienced tech is recommended since the multilayer motherboard will start to separate at a certain temperature, possibly ruining the whole motherboard.

Gateway not turning on with or without battery/AC adaptor

Laptop does not power up or turn on anymore!


You seem to be in deep trouble..

It sure seems to be a motherboard issue. I will advise you to buy a new MBD. And to your relief, the data on harddrives will be "nil" affected by the motherboard change.

There might be an easier and cheap solution to the problem, but the area to be audited to find the solution is large with no guarentee that we will find a viable solution. Motherboard replacement will be an instant solution..

If you own a dell laptop, but a complete cover warranty that will include a free motherboard replacement and warranty for 1 more year..

Laptop will not turn on.


plug it into the wall , most newer laptops will have a power boost while plugged into AC.
check your power cable receptical on the back of the laptop, these are notorious for getting loose.
check the cable on the ac adaptor, these are bad for getting breaks that you cant see in them (run your hand down the cable physically and fell for any breaks while unplugged, then do it again plugged in and watch for lights to flicker on the computer.
look for the power light on the laptop to come on when you plug the adaptor in. if you get a light on the adaptor and on the computer, then the adaptor isnt the issue.
the next step is checking the power button and power supply.. post what your results are here and we'll move to the next step if not resolved.
Regards!

Computer will not charge


I have same problem. Was told that port which we plug the AC adaptor into is either cracked, loose, or broken. Apparently it is not a simple fix. Must be taken to PC repair shop where you'll be charged about $200.

Melting power adaptor


Is the power adaptor made for the country you are living in? It's possible the plug you are plugging it into has a higher current than the plug was certified for. Have you tried plugging the laptop in in another location (like, in a different building)? You may just need to replace the adaptor, how old is it?
