1. You need to see any bios updates for your laptop, if yes update bios.

2. If update didn't solves your problem you need to replace battery.

The power receptors next to the battery sound like toast. Try running the computer off of just the charger (correct one) with no battery. If this works, you need a new battery. If this doesn't work, your computer needs a new power supply. Hope this helps =]

My gateway nv54 laptop battery is ok, I've checked it in lap-top tech service. But the system gives me a message "consider replacing your battery" or something like that. With a full-charged...


Unfortunately there isnt much you can do, the only real solution that has ever been known to work is to completely drain the battery (I mean keep trying to turn it on even after its died, many many times) and then put in on charge for 8hrs.
Other than that, regardless of what people say, there isnt much else you can do. And I wouldnt put too much faith in any tests these techs have run, its almost impossible to really see what state the battery cells are in.
For future reference, when you are using your laptop plugged into the mains, take the battery out, that wil help prolong its life, and never let it get too hot or charge it longer than it needs (can bend the cell walls)

Can you charge a lap top thru usb port on a desk top


Hi guest, you cannot charge the laptop thru usb, it will be solely on the AC adaptor port. USB's are functioned for multi-media devices such as cameras, MP3 players, etc..

I just replaced my ac adapter for my gateway lap top mx 6931 thinking that was the problem for why my screen flickers when i plug my ac adpater in to charge my battery. The battery wont charge unless i...


Chances are the power jack in the laptop that is to blame. It's common for the solder connections holding the jack to the motherboard to break because of the power plug flexing. One way to check is to keep the laptop steady and wiggle the power plug. If the power indicator flickers, that's what's wrong.

The good news is that this is usually repairable. The bad news is that not all service shops are willing to get into this level of repair. The motherboard needs to be removed from the computer so the connections can be repaired. Sometimes the board needs some mechanical repair as well, and occasionally the only way to fix the trouble is to replace the board. Most shops want to replace the motherboard right off.

Call around to shops in your area and see who's willing to try soldering the board. That is usually all that's needed to get you going again.

I have a gateway 3250GZ laptop, the DC in jack


http://forums.whatthetech.com/DC_Jack_Laptop_t105164.html

double check your power cord! i just went thru 3 days of troubleshooting my Gateway M6318. Thought it was my dc jack.... after tearing down my laptop... finding the jack in tact, soldering in tact. testing my power cord... off and on for 3 days.. it was reading 19v.. which is what it should... but as of today began zero reading on tester. Tomorrow I will buy a new power cord to see if this was the correct problem... wish i would have found the above reference site before all the other troubleshooting i had done... tearing down my lap top, pulling, tugging, twisting my power cord to get a good charge.... etc. hope this helps!

CHARGER


I assume by charge you mean your power adapter. If this is the case you can purchase any universal power adapter for laptops within an acceptable wattage for your laptop computer. You can either visit your local best buy or circuit city store or purchase one at newegg.com. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834999586&Tpk=N82E16834999586 Hope this helps. :)
