I have the very same problem, the Drive light turns red, the screen is "black" and the battery charging light indicator on the front is off. No differance if I'm traying to power up on battery or AC-adapter.

Before this problem appeared I had problems where the laptop was powering off, with no warning, and I had to restart it. This happened several times and was going on for about a week before it died totally. Can it be the CMOS battery on the mother board? Anyone having clue what the problem could be?

    • Insert a paper clip or small pointed object into the small hole near the button on the DVD-ROM door.

When turn on comptuer the screen show red, blue, green squares scrolling, cannot see boot process. What is causing this?


Most probably you either have a loose connection between your monitor & your PC, or the data cable connecting the monitor & the PC is defective & needs to be either repaired or replaced.

You can try to use another cable of the same type & see if this will fix the problem.

Gateway laptop


The first link shows what the status lights are, and the second is for the user guide. I believe the status light you're seeing indicates that the module is ready to swap. This refers to the modular bay or your CD drive. This is covered on page 52 of the user guide. It appears that you have hit the safely remove hardware icon, and most likely turned off the CD drive. Release and slide the drive out and put it back in. This should reset it, and the light should go off or turn green.
