Just do a simple test. plug your charger in AC mains, at the jack end, insert a wire and then try to make instant contact with the jacket of the jack. you will see a brief spark. If spark is there, it means your adapter is good. rest you know that if charger is ok and still laptop is not working it means that there is something wrong with the power section inside the laptop. Even with a bad battary, if adapter is good, laptop will work, provided power section of the laptop should be ok.
cheers

My tablet wont turn on or charge


Unplug the Battery, hold the Power button for 10 seconds to discharge any capacitors, Plug the battery back in, Charge the tablet until the battery reaches 100% (Factory Charger preferred), Turn it on. If this doesn't work it could be a bad battery, bad charger or bad USB connector.7 Jan 2014

not saying any off this is going to work for you but read it anyway.
the reason i say this is because i had some one else with the same problem but it ended up it was the tablet itself was faulty.

I have a gateway m285-e tablet pc. I turned my computer off then 2 days later when I turned it on it appears to have a dead screen. I tried connecting an external monitor and switching to it via FN+F4...


Yup that is the Screen's back light inverter or CCFL(the actual light).
Here is sites which well the inverter for your model: (this is the cheapest I found in a short time but keep looking)

Here is a video that might help ya:
Just pay attention to the dismantling not the screen replacing, once you open up the screen its pretty self explanatory how to replace it.
If you have anymore questions comment or send me a msg.

Hope this help, If it does then please, remember to leave Feedback/Testimonials.

Gateway M285-E, powers up, but no video on screen.


its the video chip desoldering itself. The cpu is thermally monitored, the video chip is not. HP addressed this and updated thier warranties based on this. The updated bios keeps the fan idling slowly rather than turning it off. I have repaired a few of these motherboards by re-heating the video chip, then reseating the bga underneath.

My gateway m285 doesn't always power up ....sometimes it won't ...help?


This problem usually occurs when you have dropped your computer. However It could be caused by many things. Have you checked to see if it charges correctly? Try buying a new charger, and if it does not work than just return the charger, and take it to a professional. Internal problems are very complicated and I dont reccomend you do it yourself
