    does the laptop power on and boot to windows? or is the battery light just flashing 3 times when powering on? does the system shut down on you? you are not giving enough information about what the problem is? if the system is running fine with no problems with the exception that the battery light flashes 3 times then there really is no issue.its probably a diagnostic stage when powering on the laptop need more details on what is happening

    Does this only happen when powering up or is the battery icon showing all the time and the system shuts down?

Is the computer coming on or is it just flashing and then nothing? From what you have said I am guessing you are saying it is not powering on?? You either have a bad power supply, DC jack, or your battery is bad. If the computer turns on and runs fine with just the power supply and not the systems battery then you probably have a bad battery. If your computer is not turning on try wiggling the adapter up close to the DC jack when you push the power button. If it turns on or tries to turn on then you need to replace your DC jack. If you have a voltage meter you can check your power supply to make sure it is getting proper voltage.

Can u use your laptop with battery only? If not then try removing the battery and use the ac power only. If its ok then your battery need to be replaced. If not then i suggest replacing your ac power or both.

Here is a solution that may help ..its on my tips and tricks page.. give it a try and let ma know what happens .. follow the instructions as written though

possibly the safety system kicking in

step #1: remove the battery and all other external hardware
step #2: disconnect the power adaptor
step #3: press and hold the power button for 10-20 seconds
step #4: connect the power adaptor only! no battery!
step #5: press the power button to start system.
spet #6; If the system boots and you have video let it boot and run for 10 miniutes ... then shut down and reconnect the battery....
step #7: reboot system If system is still good repeat step#6

continue this process until all hardware is reconnected.....

This is very common among all laptops especially if they are connected to the adaptor for very long periods of time without using the battery. The process of holding the powerbutton with no energy to the laptop drains the power out of all of the capacitors on the system board and thus allows the system to boot normally once energy is reconnected.

Dell 1749 won't boot power light flashes 3 times


You've got an issue with your Memory or the Video Card.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Remove the battery, Remove the cover that houses the memory then remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

I have a hp modle G60-471NR and it wont power up tried hard start up didnt work ac addapter led is on when i press the power button the battery indicater led flashes three times please help me


It is possible that the connector inside the laptop is damaged. It would still show that power is getting to the unit, but not to the parts inside. I would think the internal connector needs replacing.

If this information was helpful, Please rate the solution high. thanks

I have a gateway laptop model mx6454. The


Your power adapter my be loose on the motherboard which would require soldering it back on.
To confirm if this is your problem plug your laptop in and press the cord in and press the power button continuously if it powers on thats your problem.
When pressing the cord in it may take a couple of different angles before you find the right one so press it in if that don't work press it in and lean on the left, then to the right, up, down etc.
I am experiencing this problem right now I have clamped my cord for a temporary fix.

M-series gateway (m1629) press start button, nothing


Taken apart, looking for abnormal solder etc checked powers switches decided that this unit was acting like it may have shut down due to excessive heat issue. pulled battery on board, tested ok, re-installed everything and found that this unit now is active. Conclusion: I suspect the bios shut this unit down, hard reset correct this issue.

Does not power up.


Remove the battery and try to turn on the laptop without the cord plugged in to allow the device to completely discharge. Put the battery back in and hold the power button in for 45 seconds, the lights should flash and then turn the laptop on normally.

This always works for my laptop.

I have a gateway ma7 laptop and press power and get nothing


When the computer is off, unplug the power cord from the laptop and then plug it back in. See if the charge light (lightning bolt symbol next to the led) comes on or turns green/blue. If it doesn't your power supply may not be working, even if the light on the supply is on. Second is the battery may be damaged. Remove the battery and see if you can power on at all.
If it boots with only the cord, the battery is bad/shorted forcing shutdown.
