You could well be correct but just to make sure.

You need to beg, borrow or steal another known good power supply/charger unit and see if that works. You see if yours in faulty, its not charging the battery or supplying power to the laptop.

If nothing glows after that it could be the charger circuit on *********** board or just the power connector on the motherboard .

I have no led light on my e1705 when i press it and nothing comes on


Things to check:
1. AC adapter cord, esp close to the brick. Does the green light come on the brick? If not, replace the adapter.
2. Reseat battery. Check the battery charge by depressing the battery indicator button on the battery. Does it have a good charge? If so, then it could be the connection to the mother board causing the issue. If not, then replace the battery.
3. If both the battery is good and the AC adapter is good then you are looking at a mother board issue.

Hi
I presume you checked the DC power supply. Don't use a generic power supply on this model, because that will cause alot of different symptoms. I use the exact same model on service calls. A further way to test the mother board is to remove the CPU and memory. Carefully provide power and look for lights. If none, my next step would be to refloat the video chip. This requires special equipment. A replacement mother board without processor on eBay is $49.00 so it might be time to consider that. Good luck

Gateway 450ROG, will not start. Red DVD/CD ROM


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?

A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective.
