Have you tested your power supply to confirm it's sending out the right amount of current.A simple ac tester is all you need.On the back of your power brick it will tell you your in-put and out-put voltage requirements.If your ac adapter tests good your new battery is probally the problem.

Are you sure that the charger is working?

I have a gateway MT6840. I am having charging problems.


This problem requires the dismantelling of the system and the socket either being resoldered to the motherboard or replaced if it is damaged. if you cannot or are not comfortable with doing this yourself, you will need to get a tech shop to do this for you.

Gateway mt6841 won't turn on or won't take a charge, no lights when ac adapter is plugged in


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the charger unit is acturally giving out the power, then it maybe the DC Jack in the laptop (where it plugs in) Is this loose


It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

Gateway solo mt6840 power input is not working


I had the same exact problem, the computer techs I talked to all said it was either the DC Jack or the Motherboard. They will need to open your computer to check this out and they usually charge to do this. I had the DC Jack replaced and still had the same problem so their next suggestion was to get a new Motherboard which can set you back quite a bit. Try to find a Computer repair shop who will give you an estimate at a minimum to no charge, also ask if they are able to fix the Motherboard without totally replacing it if this is the problem. This will most likely be at half the cost of a new Motherboard. My computer was fixed for a total of $220, that was $150 for a Motherboard repair and about $50 for the DC Jack repair. The only drawback was the company ended up damaging the body of my computer and won't own up to it. Whatever you do, don't send it to Pell Technology and get it done in the near vicinity. Also take pictures of your computer before you leave it with any computer repair shop.
