Is the laptop still under warranty, if so get it repaired under warranty. If you try and fix it yourself you most likely would void your warranty. Power problem are quite common with laptops especially with the power socket on the laptop and the power plug which plugs into the power socket. These problems can be fixed, but I suggest you try to get yours fixed under warranty.

GATEWAY 4024 WONT POWER ON


Remove battery and try again, if no! the DC jack in the laptop is a common problem from no power to intermittent power. The Laptop will need to be dismantled down to the motherboard level to address the DC jack, chances are it has bad connections on the flip side of the board where the plug is.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of using a plugged in Gateway laptop even if it is fully charged.


If you use your laptop plugged in while fully charged it will shorten the life of your battery so that after a few months of doing this the battery will only hold the charge for a short time.
If you need to use it plugged in when the battery is fully charged it's best to remove the battery first.

My computer won't charge.


Seems to me that your battery is broken. You will need a new battery.

When you buy 1 try to not leave the battery in whilst the power is plugged in, This will expand your batterys life span

I have a Gateway MX8711 Laptop and all of a sudden it powered off and even when I plugged in the power cord thinking that it may be the battery, it still will not power back on. What could be the problem?...


It should still run while plugged in dead battery or not. Depending on the age it may just have worn out. Power supply may be dead, that would be my guess.Most shops will charge a $70 fee to test it.

Certain years of brand new Gateways has a horrendous history of dying leading to a lot of "refurbished" machines being unleashed on the public.

Gateway Laptop power supply connection


Yes, there is an alternative... go to another shop. I think $200 is too much to be fixing that problem. I have a friend who charges half of that, so I know you can find it cheaper. Other than that, no alternative. Its solder joints are bad and it needs to be resoldered.
