SOURCE: Gateway NV52 Blank/Blue Screen after 20 minutes of use

Only do this if you feel competent in doing so.

Pulling apart laptops is not for the faint of heart.

If you really must do it there are some
good guides here
.

An alternative is to get a can of compressed air used to clean computers. Put the nozzle on and spray it in every hole you can see without putting the nozzle itself inside the laptop.

Do this outside with glasses on.


You may also want to remove the hard drive and ROM drive.

Take a
peek here for more ideas of what is involved.

There are a few are tips for various things in there.

DON'T touch the CPU cooler unless you know what you are doing and have some thermal grease for CPUs to hand.

To make newer laptops last longer between cleaning a good 3 fan cooling pad is suggested.
never use a laptop on soft surfaces as the ventilation can act as a mini vacuum cleaner and encourage dirt build up.
Soft surfaces also block the vents causing fans to run more and burn out sooner.

Hope this gives you the information you need

SOURCE: Gateway nv52 won't turn on

I also had this problem. I turned it off and it would not turn on. I found the solution. First, extend the laptop screen as far back as it will go. Don't just stop the screen at a ninety degree angle. My laptop screen pulls back to about 135 degrees. Now press the power button. It should start up.

Why do I think this works? Well...I used to own an older model thinkpad that had a short "male" connector on the screen, that when the screen was folded down would enter into a "female" connector on the base of the unit and trigger sleep mode on the unit. This is how the system could automatically hibernate when the screen was closed. The little male connector broke off, and I couldn't get the system to wake up, because the connection to tell the laptop that I had the screen up or down no longer worked. I couldn't even power it up. I had to take an ink pen and push the connector through the female end to indicate to the motherboard that I'd opened the screen before it would even turn on.

It appears that the same type of mechanism is built into the long BAR under the screen of the NV52 and somehow it can't determine when the screen is open or closed. If it detects that the screen has not been opened, it won't power up. This safeguard prevents the laptop from being turned on mistakenly while closed up in your laptop bag. Extending the screen back resets the mechanism and it should turn on. Sorry for the long explanation...

Gateway NV52 won't wake up.


Is it clean? fan and vents? Unplug, remove battery, leave battery out, plug in, reboot. If that fails, Re Boot and try a System restore/recovery to a date before this issue. OR, Boot to Safe Mode, use this procedure to select Normal Boot: http://www.netsquirrel.com/msconfig/msconfig_win7.html When/If you get a Normal Boot, Open Control Panel, Power Options, select High Performance, select Change Plan settings, set plugged in both to Never, set advanced setting to your preference. Use this procedure: http://windows.about.com/od/customizingwindows/ss/set_power_options_all.htm Always shut down and unplug your laptop when not in use, remove battery when you use on AC, your Laptop/components will last longer, and will not be subject to possible power surge damage and the battery, IF it malfunctions will not cause a fire hazard.

Remove top


To me when you state remove the top of a laptop, you are talking about removing the Palm Rest Cover.

With the laptop closed, the top cover is the Display Cover.
This, I suppose, could be considered the 'Top' also.

At any Ol' rate here is the link to a free Service Manual, for the Gateway NV53 series of Notebook PC's.
I think you'll find it crosses directly over, to the Gateway NV52 series of Notebook PC's; which you have one of,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-gateway

Go to the top line - Gateway 400. (400 in blue)
Drop down to the second line, scroll over, and click on the blue -
NV53

Now you can disassemble the Display Assembly, or remove the Palm Rest Cover.

If it is the Palm Rest Cover post back in a Comment.
The reason is I want to give you needed information.
The main one is the Keyboard Cable connector on the motherboard.

IF you break that ZIF connector, you are looking at MOTHERBOARD REPLACEMENT, and why I want to guide you.

(Or any of the other ZIF connectors on the motherboard.

Gateway nv52 won't charge


It sounds like you either have a dead mother board or a bad power inlet. Did the machine work with the new battery while it was charged? If so, then the battery connector was good and the inlet was bad. If not, your motherboard could be dead. I've also seen where a bad battery connector would syphon off enough power to not power on the machine or charge the battery.
