Question about Gateway MT6707 Notebook PC

Is the battery dead?

A few days ago, my laptop turned itself on while I was awaiting a new power cord. It died, and now the thing won't respond to the presence of the new power cord at all. Also, after and since it died, the battery light has been blinking red.

    Oh dear.... I didn't even know it could work on AC only. I just tried it, and I got nothing.

    I wonder what could have happened.... the thing was off for literally 4 days before it turned itself on.

Have you tried taking the battery out and running strictly on the AC cord? If so, and it still has a problem, then it's not just the battery.

Yes, it's called dead batteries.

Replace the batteries with new ones, and then just turn it on. It shouldn't be necessary to sync it to the xbox, unless yuo have synced it to another xbox lately.

Laptop battery light won't stay on


The battery might be dead. Batteries only have a useful life and after that they have to be replaced.

Does your laptop work ok off the AC Adapter Power Cord? If so, your battery is dead and your power cord is good. If the laptop does not work off the Power Cord then either your Power Cord is bad or the DC Power Jack where the power cord plugs into the laptop is bad. In either case a good battery will not charge if the power cord or the DC Jack is bad.

Check your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the compute. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

New battery HP g61 is fully charged but not working \


Maybe the AC Adapter Power Cord is not working. If you can't get on the laptop with the power cord then it is bad and the battery might be drained so you have no power source to power up the laptop.
If the laptop works only off the Power Cord and the batteryis not charging, then the battery is dead.

To check to make sure the Power Cord is working remove the battery and let thelatop run for 10 minutes or so.

To check to see if the battery has any charge left in it put the battery in andremove the power cord. If it won't boot or shuts down then the battery is deadand needs to be replaced if the power cord is ok.

It is not the power cord but the input jack itself. You will need to bring it to someone that can solder in a new connector. This is what they look like from the inside. Most local computer or electronic stores can make the repair for you. Should be around $50-$75. Make sure you don't pay too much.

AC Power and Battery Problem.....


Sounds like the battery or possibly the charging circits themselves are the problem. Can you try turning on the laptop with just the power cord in and no battery?

Laptop Power Issues


Hi,

Most laptop batteries would die out after a year or two. None the less, the laptop should work with or without the batteries.

In some instances, the batteries have deteriorated to the point that it will gobble up the power from the charger denying sufficient juice for the laptop's use. The temporary workaround is to use the laptop without the batteries. if removing the battery and the unit powers up/works, then you have verified that indeed it is the battery causing you problems.

If even without the battery the unit will not operated, you can suspect the charger not 100% compatible with your laptop. If it is an original charger, then you can conclude that something is wrong inside the Toshiba.

I understand that the original charger intended for a Toshiba P25-S670 is 19VoltsDC. 6.3Amperes (120Watts).

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
