Re: no power

I have 4 x gateway laptops all with the same fault.

They all work fine from battery but will not charge.

This is a common fault with them, I have been trying to get a copy of the motherboard wiring / circuit diagram.

Also I have traced the fault to possibly 6 components.

will post again with more info when available

Re: no power

First remove your battery and insert the charger directly to the notebook and try to switch on,thus your battery is not in used.If the problem continue then there is problem with the botton switch or motherboard.

My gateway nv79c54u laptop ac plug doesnt charge just blinks orange

When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

I have an everex nc1500. it was on working fine, then it suddenly went dead like it was on battery,(but was on charger). now no lights come on ,it doesnt charge, doesnt try to turn on in any way. it acts...

This seems like a poor soldering job at the factory which has become loose/disconnected over time, affecting the power port the ac adapter plugs into. Take the laptop to the shop and have your power jack inspected.

Cannot power on, even when plugin the AC there's no lights (no charging)


This is a power problem.

First remove try charging your laptop with another power cord to see if it works

If it doesnt,remove the battery from the laptop and plug the laptop directly into power if the laptop comes on,then the battery is faulty and you should get a new one

But if it doesnt then the charging port is no longer working and you should get a repairer to help you change the charging port

My acer doesnt power on at all i plugged it in to the charger and it wont charge power light doesnt even light up and i plugged it in with no battery and still nothing. any ideas on whats wrong with it?...

Check it by putting it on another Power Adapter. It sounds to me as if the Power Supply has failed... Thats the bit that supplies DC.. to the laptop, and charges the battery, they fail frequently. Take it to a PC store and ask them to test it with another supply. The Power Supply MUST be the same specs tho.

Toshiba Laptop wont work unless plugged in, i recently bought a new battery think that the battery was the problem and still it doesnt work unless its plugged in. please help me!

Go to CONTROL PANEL / POWER OPTIONS / POWER METER. Is the battery charged or charging?

If POWER METER says the battery is charged, you have a motherboard problem. Take it to a tech.

Do you have a voltmeter?

Remove the battery and check for voltage at the laptop's battery contacts, while it is plugged in. No voltage = charging circuit defect. A blown internal fuse or other motherboard problem. Take it to a tech.

Voltage OK or no voltmeter - take it to a tech.

A qualified technician should have a schematic and other technical documentation for your model It can be rather difficult (expensive) and hit-or-miss to locate possible fuses without the factory paperwork.

Good luck.
