If you are not getting any thing when just the charger is plugged in and either no battery or the battery is dead, but the system will run on a fully charged battery. There may be a problem with the motherboard that a DC jack replacement will not help.. some of the traces sandwiched in the mid-plain on the mother board might have corroded away and need to be bypassed .. check my blog for pictures on how this can be done. http://cegeekbook.blogspot.com/2010/07/gateway-ma7-mx6930-no-power-will-not.html

Sounds like either the power Jack on the motherboard is loose or the motherboard itself is bad.

The motherboard would have to be taken out of the laptop and where the power jack is, the solder points below it need to be resoldered so the connections are made properly and its nice and tight. If that doesn't fix the problem then the motherboard is bad. I would suggest taking the laptop to a repair shop cause the whole motherboard needs to be taken out and its alot of work.

Battery is not charging with new adapter


Clean battery terminals with a stiff toothbrush, plus the new battery. If no change! charge circuits need to be checked for output voltage, if okay! new battery is defective, If no! the charge circuits in the motherboard are the issue "very rare"

My gateway netbook wont charge, they sent me a new battery but again it will not charge, what could be wrong?


Hello,

The problem might be either from the charger or from the laptop.

To confirm and repair if it is the charger, all you have to do is to plug the charger on another laptop to see if it will charge, if it does not charge, then you know the fault is from the charger, and the solution is for you to replace it with a new one, before you replace it, try to connect another power cord to the charger, because sometimes the power cord might have been burnt, that have happened to me twice and replacing the power cord solved the problem. But if replacing the power cord does not help, then you need to change the power cord.

To confirm and repair if it is the laptop, plug in a new charger to the laptop, if it does not charge, then you need to understand that the charging port of the laptop is faulty and needs to be replaced, have a repairman replace the charging port for you.

Take care and good luck

1. isthe battery charging 2.isthe charger


You don't mention a make or model, so I can only give you general solutions. If the radio has a drop-in charger there may be a light to indicate charging. If the light comes on when the radio is in the charger, it's getting a charge. If you have a multimeter, DVM, or DC voltmeter you can check the battery voltage (charge) both before and after a charging cycle. You can also use the meter to confirm the output from the charger. If possible, replace the batteries with standard alkaline types and see if the radio works. I hope this info helps.
