Try the following

  • Remove the battery and power on the PC with the external power source alone
  • Remove power source and power on the PC with the battery
This will ensure there is no fault with the battery. Sometimes, if your processor is overheated, you'll have wait for 10-30 minutes before you can start again.

Are you sure that the charger is working?

My gateway mt6840 does not read my new battery


Have you tested your power supply to confirm it's sending out the right amount of current.A simple ac tester is all you need.On the back of your power brick it will tell you your in-put and out-put voltage requirements.If your ac adapter tests good your new battery is probally the problem.

Gateway mt6841 won't turn on or won't take a charge, no lights when ac adapter is plugged in


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the charger unit is acturally giving out the power, then it maybe the DC Jack in the laptop (where it plugs in) Is this loose


It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Power port for gateway MT6840


First easy check is to stick a toothpick into the jack to see if the middle pin is loose. If it's not loose, try another power adapter to check just incase. If you dont have one ask around to borrow a universal one. Dont jiggle and wiggle the plug with the power plugged in if it is loose because i've seen shorts happen.

usually plugs are mounted onto the mainboard. To get to the main board, you'd have to take apart everything because everything attatches to the main board. The case, keyboard, heatsinks, speakers, and so on must come off before you'll be able to see the power jack. With parts and labor, it comes close to a new laptop.

Laptop not charging even when plugged in- battery or power supply


Sounds like you have a bad power jack. Broken solder connection on circuit board. Is it loose when you plug it in the back of the laptop?
If so that is what it is, seek professional repair as it is not a repair for the novice!

I have a Gateway NX560XL laptop. The other day it was on battery power and it said it only had 5 minutes left. So i plugged it in, but the charge icon did not show up and it didn't start charging. After...


Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty. If not,
Try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty. If not,
Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.
Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

Gateway solo mt6840 power input is not working


I had the same exact problem, the computer techs I talked to all said it was either the DC Jack or the Motherboard. They will need to open your computer to check this out and they usually charge to do this. I had the DC Jack replaced and still had the same problem so their next suggestion was to get a new Motherboard which can set you back quite a bit. Try to find a Computer repair shop who will give you an estimate at a minimum to no charge, also ask if they are able to fix the Motherboard without totally replacing it if this is the problem. This will most likely be at half the cost of a new Motherboard. My computer was fixed for a total of $220, that was $150 for a Motherboard repair and about $50 for the DC Jack repair. The only drawback was the company ended up damaging the body of my computer and won't own up to it. Whatever you do, don't send it to Pell Technology and get it done in the near vicinity. Also take pictures of your computer before you leave it with any computer repair shop.
