Have a Gateway Laptop Computer Model #MT6708. Previously computer had blank screen and no power. Currently purchased new battery and power cord. Computer now operating screen and power is on. However, when...

First thing check that the battery charge light is on when the battery and the charger are connected.
If it is it indicates that the power supply is charging the battery,
If it isnt it may indicate a fault with the battery or that the charger is not compatable with the laptop or that there is a fault with the charger.
If the battery is charging then try running the laptop on battery only without the charger and on charger only without the battery.
This will eliminate which one is faulty.

You mentioned that if you wiggle the cord then the light comes on again.
Check to see if the charger end plug is lose or the actual port on the laptop is lose.
If the charger plug is lose then return to seller and make sure they gave you the correct charger. if the actual port on laptop is lose then perhaps u got a bad connection and you need electrician or local laptop technician to open it up and solder properly on motherboard.

Let me know how it goes.

How to replace a DVD drive?

Turn the laptop upside down. take out the battery and the pwoer cable from the back and you might need a philips screw driver handy. you would see a hole and a lock image under the laptop.d84c6f4.gif
as shown in the image open the screw and then use the flat head screw driver and pop the drive out of the computer. and undo the same steps to pop the other one back in.

There is no sound coming from my gateway 4525gz lapto. the spec sheet says there is a sound card, but in the sound and audio device tab in the control panel, it says there is no audio device.

Reinstall the audio drivers from the manufacturers CD. If you didnt get one ,download the latest drivers from the manufacturers website. Restart the system after installation.That would make it run.
PS: confirm with the dealer wether you have a sound card or not.

I have a Gateway MX6930. I purchased a new battery because the old one's life had shortened so much. The new one worked fine for a few days but now doesn't work at all. The battery charge light illuminates...

Yes you are right, a defective battery.
It's always recommended that you use manufacturers endorsed hardware because of this fact!!
Return the battery and get a new one. when you get the new battery don't charge it, just use it until its dead and then recharge it. It will then hold 100% charge.

Good luck

Won't Charge Any Battery--Even a New One

Check for loose solder connection in the power supply and the terminals that connects the battery to computer.
