Hello

I have a store in Scottsdale AZ. I have seen this many times with not only Gateways but other laptops as well. Not all universal power supplies deliver the correct amerage the laptop requires. Even though the universal power supply has the correct specs, I've measured both the voltages and amperage and found them to be not all that acurate. Your laptop is probably alright. Order a new power supply from MPC. MPC is Gateway's repair agent.

My gateway e-475m g laptop will not come on or charge. i have 17.6 vdc coming out of the ac power adapter


If your power cord/charger is putting out the right amount of power then it's probably your motherboard that needs to be replaced.

Gateway laptop will not power on-even with charger plugged into the outlet. It blinks 4 times red and does nothing. I am thinking it is the cord since it does this.


Hi. Borrow another cord and try to charge it, if not maybe its the motherboard they get burned with the continuous use. Anyway you can replace it. And it's not really expensive.

Seems that something must have bent the connector inside the laptop itself. If you are knowledgeable enough you could see for yourself but I would take it to someone for an estimate to see if it's worth your time and trouble having it worked on at that level.

I have a new charger cord when plug in back of computer my computer want charge up


Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? Ifnot then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

My gateway netbook wont charge, they sent me a new battery but again it will not charge, what could be wrong?


Hello,

The problem might be either from the charger or from the laptop.

To confirm and repair if it is the charger, all you have to do is to plug the charger on another laptop to see if it will charge, if it does not charge, then you know the fault is from the charger, and the solution is for you to replace it with a new one, before you replace it, try to connect another power cord to the charger, because sometimes the power cord might have been burnt, that have happened to me twice and replacing the power cord solved the problem. But if replacing the power cord does not help, then you need to change the power cord.

To confirm and repair if it is the laptop, plug in a new charger to the laptop, if it does not charge, then you need to understand that the charging port of the laptop is faulty and needs to be replaced, have a repairman replace the charging port for you.

Take care and good luck

Computer not charging with universal adapter


hi i had the problem before , you have to buy dell charger in order to charge your battery, universal charger doesnot work with this, the only way not to lose your power is to keep the charger connected, in this way the battery will not be charged but u will not lose the power. again you need dell charger the universal only gives power but doesnot charge.
Best Regards

Charger/power cord not working


your problem might not be the AC adapter but the AC jack of your laptop. if you cant keep a charging icon steady then maybe the AC jack of your laptop is loose already. you might need the help of a guy knowledgeable in electronics to help you out with this one.
