It might have overheated. Let it rest for an hour and try again. Also make sure the AC adapter is keeping the battery charged.

Power button stuck down on gateway laptop


I doubt this would work twice, but a 30-min drive to the repair shop unstuck my power button. It was even in a padded case. Cheapest repair ever! (Hate me if you must but worth a try right?)

The button has been flaky for months. One day the laptop suddenly turned on by itself. When I turned it off it immediately started again from sleep/hibernate/shutdown. Pressing it 20x, spraying with compressed air and swearing didn't fix it. Instead of pulling the battery, I set Power Plan to "Power Saver" with everything set to minimum after 5 min., power button to do nothing, and NO timed shutdowns.

researched your problem a little, it sounds like a burnt out board. It doesn't look too good for parts either. google your symptoms and you will see a few hits on your exact issue

I have a gateway laptop MC7801u laptop and the battery only works when it is plugged in. it will not hold a charge, and the battery meter reads, "plugged in, not charging." what can i do to fix this?


your battery has just gone to junk, you will just have to use your power cable, until you are able to buy a new battery. Your lucky though my battery kept crashing my laptop. I just had to remove the battery completely and keep use the power cable to get it to work.

you can order battery from gateway, or go to newegg.com or ebay.com or any other place you want to.

Will not power up


I think your laptop is having some loss contact inside the Motherboard in between power supply or battery.
Usually just like this and later on it power up again normally.
My advice is you send it to gateway to see your laptop for working it properly. I do it's only a little adjustment on your laptop to them.
Good luck!

Laptop Gateway mx8711


Gateway laptop is really ****.
I bought Gateway MX8711 in March 2007, after 6 months i use it...the hard disk failed.
Gateway replaced a new Hitachi hard disk for me but not more than 8 months and it failed again.
Gateway told me that i have no more warranty because the repair warranty is only 90 days.
I bought this laptop and use it not more than 2 years, the hard disk was failed twice.
Usually Hard disk manufacturer provided 3 years warranty for the hard disk. The manufacturer year of the hard disk is May 2007....they should able to help because the har disk not more than a year being used...but they don't. This is really bad customer service and not fair to the buyer.
I will not buy any Gateway products anymore....i swear.
