SOURCE: nv53 gateway laptop will not

Please take out the battery then plug in your power strip, press and hold the power until it comes on.

Let me know if this works. What could be happening is the system went to sleep and was not responding to user input, so this would be a way of a hard reset for it. Let me know if it works or not, as the next step is a little invasive.

Gateway NV5378u lap top, brand new battery installed and status says 100% charged. When I unplug the computer it shuts off as if there is no battery. Could the new battery be defective?


There are a few things to check. The LED lights can tell you a lot. This will tell you more about the battery:
  1. On the taskbar, double-click the power cord icon or battery icon to open the Power Meter dialog box. Note: If the power cord icon or battery icon does not appear on the taskbar, click the show hidden icons button.
  2. Press Fn+STATUS to view the power status box, which opens in the upper-left corner of the screen. The power status box shows the current power source, the battery charge level, and the power management mode.
  3. Look at the battery charge indicator (if applicable).
    • LED green - Battery is fully charged.
    • LED orange - Battery is charging.
    • LED blinking red - Battery charge is very low.
    • LED solid red - Battery is malfunctioning. Note: This LED only lights up when the notebook is connected to AC power.
  4. Press the battery meter button on the battery. The battery meter lights indicate the percentage of battery charge remaining.
  5. Wait for a Low Battery warning message to appear.
If your battery charge indicator displays what looks like an inaccurate charge, you may need to recalibrate the battery.

To recalibrate the battery as mentioned, try this:
  1. Connect the AC adapter and then turn on the notebook.
  2. As soon as it starts and you see a startup screen, press the F2 key.
  3. In the BIOS Setup utility, use the TAB key to select the Advanced menu.
  4. On the Advanced menu, select Battery Auto Learning, and then press the SPACEBAR to select Enabled.
  5. Use the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Exit menu. On the Exit menu select Exit Saving Changes, and then press ENTER.
  6. At the Setup Confirmation prompt, select Yes, and then press ENTER.
  7. The battery recalibration process begins and a screen opens showing you the progress.
  8. When the recalibration has finished, and the message "Press [Esc] key to exit" appears, press Esc. The battery charge indicator now displays an accurate battery charge.

Hope this helps!!

My Gateway MT6705 seems to power on because the blue light will come on and I will here the cd rom spin for a second and sometimes the fan but the screen never lights up and it seems like the laptop is...


1. Your pc have a bad LCD and will have to serviced
2. If the blue light is the indication of proper "on" status then you have a malfunction
in the video/LCD
I am not sure of the repair cost but a qualified tech can determine this.
3. Check if you have inadvertently turn your brightness down or put the laptop in sleep
mode.
IF you have dropped the laptop you could have disconnected the video cable that go to
the LCD screen

The first link shows what the status lights are, and the second is for the user guide. I believe the status light you're seeing indicates that the module is ready to swap. This refers to the modular bay or your CD drive. This is covered on page 52 of the user guide. It appears that you have hit the safely remove hardware icon, and most likely turned off the CD drive. Release and slide the drive out and put it back in. This should reset it, and the light should go off or turn green.
