So the gateway laptop i have e475m it won't turn on or no lights when plugged in. The battery will charge when the laptop is plugged in.what the issue and how to fix it


Try removing power supply and main battery. Remove HDD and RAM. Plug in power supply and press ON. It should complain that there is no hardware. If it does, replace one RAM stick at a time and repeat powering up. If now OK replace the HDD. If nothing, the motherboard has issues, possibly GPU.

Try removing the power supply and battery. Remove the hard drive and RAM. Power it up from the power supply alone. If it goes to BIOS, that has checked the system board. If not, you have a main board issue.

I have a gateway E-265M note book and I push the pwr button and it just flashes with nothing on the screen.


This indicates a motherboard issue, remove main battery and try again, if no! sub out the ram memory one at a time and test each one, still nothing! check the power supply adapter for correct voltage, no change! the laptop will need to be dismantled down to the motherboard level, this is where a pro is needed.

The power led won`t turn on


Remove main battery and try again, if no! sub out the ram memory one at a time and power up, if still no result! have the power supply adapter checked for correct voltage, if okay! the DC jack in the laptop is a common source of trouble, the computer must be dismantled down to the motherboard to address this, professional recommended.

Hi,

Flashing power light indicates that there's a problem with the RAM. You're referring to a Standy by mode when you turned on the computer. If you have a spare ram you can try to use 1 to check if the RAM that you're using is faulty. Mobo is fine dont need to worry about that. No need to remove the CMOS battery. If you know someone who has the same ram or another computer you can try that. Usually it happens to Desktop Computers that monitor was on standby mode when they have a bad ram.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Gateway mx6214 will not powerup -bought a new power cord and it still doesn't work. What could be the problem?


It is the plug in the laptop that is most likely the cause, plug the power supply in the laptop. Now put your thumb on the plug at the laptop, as you bend it sideways hit the power button repeatedly to see if it will power up, failing that take the main battery out of the laptop and use power supply only. Please take the main battery out first to see if your power supply will start the computer if the computer starts up change the battery.

At boot up press F2 and enter BIOS. Here check if your HDD is recognized. If yes Ten your Windows is corrupted and needs to be reinstalled. How to install and save your data follow the link below:

If the HDD is not being recognized then run Auto Detect to recognize the HDD. If it works fine, if not then the HDD may need a change.

No power


The RAM may need reseating or it maybe faulty.
If reseating the RAM module/s doesn't work and if you have two RAM modules, then try one at a time.
You could take the RAM to your friendly shop and get them tested or test them in another laptop.
