Is the green/red light lit? If you have a multimeter check the plug end to see if there is voltage flowing.

Other than that you can purchase a new power pack online through ebay or the Gateway site online.

cost about $45-50

Will not power on


MPC has since dissolved, leaving thousands of customers without dedicated support when their Gateway laptop won't start.

Remove the AC adapter from the laptop and attempt to boot the laptop from battery alone. Attempt to turn on the laptop.
Replace the AC adapter and remove the battery from your laptop.
Ensure the adapter is plugged in. Attempt to turn on the laptop.


Disconnect the AC adapter and leave the battery removed from the laptop.
Hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
Nothing should happen on the screen.
Reconnect the AC adapter to the laptop.
Attempt to power on the laptop.
If the laptop boots, replace the battery once the operating system loads.

Try the process again with a new AC adapter and battery if possible.
Contact Gateway support if you aren't a former MPC customer.
Alternatively, take the laptop to a computer specialist if it still won't start.

Why won't my gateway MD78 power on?


Here below are possible causes and troubleshooting steps of laptop that can't power on, hope it may help:
Possible causes:

1. AC adapter failure.
2. Power jack failure.
3. Motherboard failure.

Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solutions:
1. Test the AC adapter with a digital multimeter. It's possible that you have a failed AC adapter. If you don't have a multimeter, test your laptop with another known good AC adapter.

2.It's possible that power jack (socket where you plug the AC adapter) is broken. Remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. In some cases you can fix the jack by resoldering it on the motherboard. In other cases you have to replace the jack with a new one. Using a multimeter, test if the power goes to the motherboard through the jack.

3. If replacing the AC power adapter and jack on the motherboard doesn't help, most likely you have a bad motherboard. Replace the motherboard.

Hi,
Welcome to FixYa!
Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.


1. Removed the battery.
2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.
3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.
4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.


Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

This problem can be caused by mainly two different things. It is either the AC Adapter itself and has a short in it, or sometimes it is caused by the Power Jack inside the laptop. Are you familiar with how to read a voltmeter? I can walk you through testing your adapter. If it is either issue, I would recommend trying to fix through warranty if possible, because the power jack repair can be expensive. If you need to replace the AC adapter, I recommend a genuine adapter, as universal adapters and cheap knockoff brands will cause issues with your laptop and usually not last very long.
