The Lid can be replaced, with little problems.
Your best bet would be to get on ebay and find one that is new.
As far as your battery not charging, try shutting down the unit.
Remove the battery and restart the unit.
While the unit is running, re-insert the battery.
If when the unit is shut down, with the battery installed, do you see the battery led flash when pressing the power key ?
If so, and the unit runs fine on A/C power, you need to replace the battery.
Hope this has helped you.

If the battery doesn't charge, even though you can run the computer on AC power, it is probably the battery.

As far as the LCD cover is concerned it is not difficult to replace on most laptops, although I'm not familiar with your particular laptop. You might find a cover for it on Ebay.

My dell inspiron 6400 starts when both battery and charger are in circuit


This is more of a remedy then an actual trouble shooting step but mostly works. You would probably hear this from a support agent if they are trying to get you off the phone because this problem make no sense.

Remove the battery and the power adapter from the computer. Then hold down the power button for at least one minute. Then connect every thing back up again and see what happens.

or

Remove the battery and the power adapter from the computer and leave it alone for about 24 hours. Then connect every thing back up again and see what happens.

How to replace a cracked screen


Replacing a damaged laptop LCD screen can bring your laptop back to life.

You'll be able to access files you thought were lost and use the laptop just as you did before. And it's not as difficult as you might think.


Turn off the power, unplug the battery and all cables.

Eject the installed battery if you have one.

This will protect you against electric shock.


Find the small, round rubber screw covers and pry them off.

This will expose the small screws holding the LCD screen frame in place.


Depending on your laptop, these covers might be made of some other type of material.

Remove the frame by gently prying.


Locate the LCD screen's cable and power supply cords. Unplug them and remove any tape holding the screen in place.


Check the identify of the manufacturer on the back or side of the screen.

It may be different than your computer's manufacturer.


Since these screens look so similar, make sure you order an LCD screen that matches your manufacturer's model number, or else the new screen will not fit.


Plug in the new LCD screen, replace any tape holding the screen in place and replace the frame.

Don't pinch any wires as you press the frame back into place.


Screw the frame down and switch on the power to see if it works.

If it does, go ahead and replace the screw covers.


If it doesn't, remove the battery, the screws and the frame.

Check your connections.


If it still doesn't work, call your parts supplier and ask for assistance in getting another replacement LCD screen.


Hope this helps

Latop will not boot up


1.Ensure your battery is holding power. Some laptops will auto shut-off if the battery won't hold a charge. In that case, replace your battery and retry. Check your charging lights or indicators to see if your laptop is getting power and charging.

2.Check your AC to DC converter (the little black adapter you plug in your AC outlet.) This converts AC power into DC power. Is it abnormally hot? If so, it is probably burned out. Replace it. Note- high heat is not a true indicator of malfunctioning. It can be dead and cold as well. No power
indicators on your laptop could be a sign of a dead or bad converter also. Converters WILL get hot (this is normal.) If it is REAL hot (to touch), then this is not good.

3.Check your power cord. Are there nicks or cuts? If so, unplugg it from the AC power and repair with electrical tape- better yet, replace it. Many computer salvage stores carry power adapter cords. They're cheap.

4. Check your laptop lid switch. If it is broken, you may have power but your screen may not come on.

This is usually a little button or mechanism located close to the lid hinge that turns on or off your

screen when your lid is open or closed respectively. Normally the operator does not push this button.

These are fragile and broken easily on some laptop models. Sometimes these can be fixed, more often

they will require replacements. If you aren't an expert repair person, get a technician to

repair/replace it for you. Opening up laptops is a very delicate operation and much more difficult to

repair than desktops. It may be worth it to spend the money for repair.

5. If you have tried these easy solutions and it still won't power on, then your problem lies

elswhere. You may have an internal power switch or voltage regulator problem.. Internal problems will

require professional help.

Set dead


Hello,
Did you plug your AC adapter in and then try to turn it on? It may be that your battery ran out of power. Try to plug your AC adapter into your laptop, wait about 2 minutes for the battery to charge, then turn on your laptop. If that doesn't work, you may need to replace your battery. The battery on that laptop is fairly cheap, ranging in price from $10 used to $60 new. If that doesn't work, your power button may need to be fixed. You then need to have it fixed by a reputable computer repair store.

Hope that helps. Good luck!

Why wont battery charge on laptop


A) The Battery is old, and beyond charging

B) The AC adapter (Charger) may be bad, and/or one of it's cables may be bad. If there is no one to test it with a multimeter, take it to a computer repair shop, and have it tested.

If bad suggest you look around at prices on the internet, before buying one from the repair shop. (If offered)

C) The port on the laptop, that the AC adapter (Charger) plugs into, is the DC Power Jack. (May be labeled as DC IN )

This jack may be soldered directly to the motherboard, in the laptop, or is attached to a cable which plugs into the motherboard.

For the style that is soldered directly to the motherboard, it's solder connections may have received damage.
Normal plugging in, and unplugging, may have cracked it's solder joints.

Bad connection caused by cracked solder joints, could = no power to battery. (Even though the laptop May be receiving power)

If laptop operates fine on the AC adapter, but the Battery will not charge, the problem may be a power sensor chipset, on the motherboard. May require replacement of the motherboard.

{ This chipset senses;
A) When the battery needs a Full charge, or just a trickle charge.
B) When the battery needs No charge, and power just goes to the laptop.
C) When the Battery needs a trickle charge, or full charge, and the laptop also needs power }

My laptop is a gateway Model:MC7801u. I have had it since 2008 and have had constant problems with the ACadapter and battery. It randomly decides not to charge my battery and then my battery dies and the...


Some people have successfully reset the charging system with the following procedure:

  1. Shut down the computer
  2. Close the lid
  3. Unplug the AC adapter
  4. Remove the battery
  5. Plug in the AC adapter
  6. Open the lid and turn on the computer
  7. Log in to your user account as usual
  8. Shut down the computer again, and close the lid
  9. Unplug the AC adapter
  10. Put the battery back in
  11. Plug in the AC adapter, open the computer and start up again
The battery should now charge normally. If this process needs to be repeated any time soon, the small clock and parameter backup battery inside may have gone bad. I don't know where that is in this particular model. In some designs, it's accessible from the wireless card or memory compartment; in others it's somewhere under the keyboard.

Charging failure can be the result of a broken cable in AC adapter, often caused by yanking on the cable to unplug it rather than pulling on the plug body. Sometimes the adapter jack gets worn out or the solder connection inside the laptop breaks. In these cases, usually no light comes on when you plug in the adapter or the AC power indicator light is intermittent.

Also, if you have a Sanyo battery pack there are some issues with the battery management firmware. Gateway has a BIOS update to address the problem.
