  1. Check your power cord & adapter.
  2. If its working then check the battery, reseat the battery & check.
  3. If available then check with another battery
  4. If no, then remove the battery & switch on the PC in AC mode.
  5. Check if battery charging indication or AC power on indication is glowing. if not then need to change ur motherboard.
  6. If indication is OK, but could not power ON then check ur RAM for any loose connection or dust. clean & reinstall.
  7. If still no display, connect an external monitor, check if display is comming.
  8. If Display is coming then your LCD need to replace.

Gateway nv52 won't charge


It sounds like you either have a dead mother board or a bad power inlet. Did the machine work with the new battery while it was charged? If so, then the battery connector was good and the inlet was bad. If not, your motherboard could be dead. I've also seen where a bad battery connector would syphon off enough power to not power on the machine or charge the battery.

If your laptop shows bios or logo screen then try taping F8 key while it's booting up, this will bring you to a boot screen boot in safe mode and restore system to before the crash.

Gateway nv52 won't turn on


I also had this problem. I turned it off and it would not turn on. I found the solution. First, extend the laptop screen as far back as it will go. Don't just stop the screen at a ninety degree angle. My laptop screen pulls back to about 135 degrees. Now press the power button. It should start up.

Why do I think this works? Well...I used to own an older model thinkpad that had a short "male" connector on the screen, that when the screen was folded down would enter into a "female" connector on the base of the unit and trigger sleep mode on the unit. This is how the system could automatically hibernate when the screen was closed. The little male connector broke off, and I couldn't get the system to wake up, because the connection to tell the laptop that I had the screen up or down no longer worked. I couldn't even power it up. I had to take an ink pen and push the connector through the female end to indicate to the motherboard that I'd opened the screen before it would even turn on.

It appears that the same type of mechanism is built into the long BAR under the screen of the NV52 and somehow it can't determine when the screen is open or closed. If it detects that the screen has not been opened, it won't power up. This safeguard prevents the laptop from being turned on mistakenly while closed up in your laptop bag. Extending the screen back resets the mechanism and it should turn on. Sorry for the long explanation...

I would like a manual so that i may use my new computer, i am on a friends computer


I'm not aware of a Gateway NV500 Series line, of Notebook PC's.
I would like you to look on the bottom of your Gateway laptop, for the exact model number.

Are you referring to the Gateway NV5207U?
It's part of the Gateway NV50 Series. (One of the one's sold at Bestbuy?)

While I wait on the exact model number, let me give you the page for the User Manual for the NV52 Series.

Never mind! 17.79MB's of anything but where the Power On button is, and what the basic parts of the laptop are!
Sheesh!

Here is the page to download the Gateway NV50 Series User Reference Guide,

http://support.gateway.com/s/notebook/2009/gateway/nv/nv52/NV52ul.shtml

On this page scroll down to - Gateway NV50 Series Reference Guide - English, and Left-click on it.
This is a PDF file download. (The computer you are on now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files)

It takes a few seconds to see the first page. It takes an additional 24 seconds or so, to fully download the file.
I advise letting the file fully download before looking through it. Otherwise you might break the download connection.
The first page is solid Black. The second page is solid White.

Should you not be aware of how to use a PDF file, and/or, want to burn off a copy to your computer, come back, and state so.

This reference guide shows the basic views of the laptop, the various function buttons, all about the Keyboard, and other details.

On this same Gateway Support page, is the Gateway Quick Start for Windows 7. It's listed at the bottom.

The Power On button is on the Right side of the laptop.
It's in the round hinge for the LCD screen.

The symbol on it is an international one. It's a circle with a line coming part way into the top. The top middle of the circle.

This is a video on Youtube, showing a user un-boxing his Gateway NV5207u. I included it to show more of where the Power On button is, and also that there is an Enable/Disable button for the Touchpad.

Would be kind of perplexing also, if you went to use the laptop, and couldn't get the Touchpad to work.

Once I have the exact model number we can proceed forward, if the Gateway NV5207u is not the laptop in question.

MX 6124 Gateway notebook screen stays black when powering up


Repaired! This sounde like a fuelty screen or screen inverter. To check this, connect to an external monitor, if the external works properly, then it's the screen or inverter. If the external doesn't work, let me know and we'll run the problem down to a more indepth (internal) trouble shoot.

Toshiba Satellite P25-S5263 monitor problem


It could be a driver problem perhaps. Does the post screen show at all or is there absolutely nothing?
