Clock resetting and power button malfunctioning on my Gateway NV53A laptop.

Replace the CMOS battery. In the Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, open Advanced power settings, set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust other settings to your preference. Set Screen Saver Time. Always turn off the computer and unplug when not in use, it will prolong life and a reboot every day will reset the computer. I would say you have a issue with the outlet connections/plug. If you have a multimeter you can verify.

Light is on where the electrical cord is plugged in but cannot turn computer on

Hard to say exactly what is wrong with the limited information you provided but...

It's fairly common for laptops to get stuck is "Sleep Mode" and exhibit this behavior.

If that's the problem, you can try the following...

Unplug the power adapter from the computer, remove the battery from the computer, then press the startup button for a few seconds. Without putting the battery back in, connect the power adapter and try starting the computer again. If this works, shutdown the computer, put the battery back in, and you should be back in operation.

Good Luck!

Lenovo 0301jdu keeps beeping when plugged in

Depending if the computer will turn on correctly or not, it sounds like this could be either simple or a big job.
To make it easy: If the computer turns on fine, works fine, just beeps while shut down and charging, there's a fault in the charger.

However, If the computer will power on, but no display yet you hear beeps, than one of 2 things is happening.

1: Try removing 1 chip of memory (1 of the panels on the bottom laptop) than starting it, than reversing the procedure.

2: If still no luck, the motherboard needs replacement which if under warranty is covered.

My D600 beeps when I first push the power button. It beeps about 2 times and then 4-5 times. It then goe ahead and comes up Thanks

sounds like a key is stuck on a keyboard. Rub your fingers all over the keyboard to make sure none of the keys are sticking. Then go ahead and turn on the laptop and see if the beeps stop. If that doesn't work, then disconnect the keyboard completely and turn on the laptop and see if the beeps stop and the laptop turns on.

If those two things don't work, unseat the memory and reseat it back into the slots one at a time and turn on the laptop after each reseat.

The beeps should go away and if they don't then you know the motherboard is starting to go bad.

The CMOS battery supplies energy to the Real Time Clock when the computer is not connected to the electrical socket, and does not have the battery inserted. It should not prevent the computer from starting up. You will however be asked to reset the time and date of the computer.
Hope it helps.
