No power showing

Gateway 600XL. Turn the laptop off, put it away in the case (didn't seem to shut off completely-power and bat lights blinking, but was in a hurry).

Got home, plugged it in...nothing. Power light does not go on, with or without battery. Tried both dock and AC adapter.

The power system is my first consideration, since the attempt of using battery and the adapter and it doesno longer come on, i suggest you have the power system checked but first insert the battery carefully and check if it comes on or not and carefully plug the adapter and watch if the adapter led on the adapter comes on or not,if comes on the power system of the laptop is the case and if does not come on change the adapter and try again. should it not work out the power system of the laptop is defective.

Power light blinking on nv53a gateway


Your Gateway laptop comes with a series of LED lights that alert you to the state of your computer. You'll notice there are blue, purple and red lights that either blink or display solidly. Each light, blinking or solid, has a different meaning. The blue blinking light on your laptop indicates that it is in Standby mode. Your laptop goes into Standby when you close its lid without shutting down the computer. To turn this light off, you'll need to take the computer out of Standby mode, and if you want to ensure that the blinking blue light does not return, shut down the computer after each use.

Open the lid of your Gateway laptop and press the power button. Once Windows loads, enter your password if required. The blue light will no longer be blinking because the computer is no longer in Standby mode. Shut the laptop off when you finish using it rather than simply closing the lid to stop the blue light from blinking again. Click "Start" from your Windows desktop and click "Shut down." Change your computer's power settings to keep if from going into Standby mode when you close the lid if you'd rather not shut down your computer every time you use it. Click "Start" and click "Control Panel." Click "System and Security" and then click "Power Options." Click "Choose what closing the lid does" from the list of options on the left side of the window. Select "Hibernate" from the drop-down lists under "On Battery" and "Plugged In." Click "Save Changes." Your laptop will now bypass Standby mode when you close the lid and it will enter Hibernate mode instead. Hope it helps.

When i start my gateway netbook lt20 a black screen pops up asking to start windows normally or 3 other options.. why?does this happen?


Usually because you didn't shut windows down properly before turning your computer off or completely draining your battery. If that is the case then simply select start windows normally and as long as you follow the correct shut down procedure it shouldn't happen again. If it does there may be a problem with your windows instalation.

The motherboard of the laptop has failed catastrophically and it will have to be replaced by a repair shop. Beware, it is going to be expensive so be prepared.

It shutdown as it informed because the battery was almost dead. I had it plugged in but plugged it in other places too in case it was the plug. After that it refused to power up and the power cord didn't...


This is a problem Gateway laptops can suffer from. Try running the laptop without the battery and just plugged into the mains. You may find the laptop will work ok with just a new battery on it but its difficult to say. It can be an expensive gamble as laptop batteries are not cheap.

MY Gateway GT4016 Will not start anymore, i first replaced the power Suply and nothing happened. the fan runs and a light blinks then it shuts down again, i used to start it by just pressing the button and...


Make sure all fans are running power supply one to hehe Maybe a bad power button? I had a gateway that did some thing very close to that because the cpu fan was not turning and a hp that did that because the power supply fan was not turning. Thats where I would start then make sure the mem is seated good and not bad you know the drill ;) if you replaced the power supply with a factory replacment it should be a voltage or wattage problem. Might also try a hard boot the power plug take the cmos bat out hold the power button down for 20 or 30 secs some people say to leave the cmos bat out and try to fire it up. I know that works on some laptops but I always had better luck putting it back in for desktops cant hurt to try it. If you have two ram sticks in it pull the # 2 one and try to fire it up if nothing changes swap the # 2 one with # 1 leaveing slot 2 open and try it that will tell ya if it is a bad ram stick I dunno just my two cents hope it helps

Won't turn on and the light is blinking red three times when i try to turn it on.


it could be the case that you dont have a problem at all and your pc needs time to charge(the light may stay on permenantly once charge is complete)In which case wait a few hours to see if this is the case first.

I would need some more information to completely help you. When you say you walk away and the pc shuts down and starts back up, does it close down (reboot) or does it go into screen saver / sleep mode? What button did you push for the power button light to blink? Have you put the PC into sleep / hibernation mode by pressing the power button once.

Upgrade from 600 MHz to 1 GhZ


According to this review, you can upgrade as far as a 2 GHz P4-M at least; http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1895,669029,00.asp Other than that, i have been unable to find the details of your motherboard - if you can post the make and model (should be printed on it somewhere) then I would hope to find a more complete list of compatible and incompatible processors. Gateway themselves no longer offer online info or support for this model, but the motherboard details should enable me to find out what you need to know. Waiting for your post :)
