Question about Gateway T-1620 Motherboard - 40GAB1800-F220
Gateway Laptops are widely known for this issue. It means your DC Power Jack is coming loose on the motherboard. This is a problem which will only increase in dimension. I used to replace them myself, but there are now many choices on eBay that make my replacement efforts unmarketably priced. These companies use advanced equipment to do the replacement.
If you go on eBay and enter "DC Power Jack Repair" in the search box, you can shop for deals between the different companies. Turn around time is usually about a week total and the price averages out around $100 or a little more including shipping. I have used several different companies and the result was the same; perfect repair, courteous treatment and quick service.
The sooner you deal with it, the better off you'll be. Defective DC Jacks can cause widelty different problems as they worsen which will confuse the issue and expose you to other diagnoses which can be way wide of the mark and much more expensive.
