This is a simple replacement if you have any skills - also you might get some of the larger retailers to install it with purchase.

Best Buy if you have one near.

Gateway laptop died. Several times it appeared to reboot only to go black and go off. No fan or lights. How can I fix this myself?


does it show that it is charging from the charging light/power supply? Is there any life left in the battery? is the charger charging the battery? the batteries dont last in laptops usually about a year before the go bad and have to be replaced, Is the charger working? The chargers go faulty all the time, The little plug that plugs into the laptop goes faulty and is a very common fault and doesnt charge/power the laptop, The only thing you can try is another power supply of the same name/model/output voltage and current with the same small plug and polarity or another battery of the same type/model, If you can do this and it doesnt cure your fault it needs looked at by a technician, Hope this helps, If you need more assistance let me know,

Power supply irratating hum


1st of all, are you sure it's the Power supply that is humming and not one of the Cooling Fans inside - Cooling fans are often a lot more noisy than power supplies. However, if it's definitely the power supply there's a couple of things you can try.
1st of all, it's never a bad thing to get your vaccuum cleaner out and (on a low power setting with the computer turned off) just vacuum out any dust that might be in the fan of the power supply.
2nd: Is the hum coming from the power supply itself or from something the power supply is vibrating against - try moving the unit a little, and ensuring that there's nothing wresting against it.
I'm presuming you've checked the cabling and ensured that the power cable (from the wall) is firmly connected? If you haven't checked that.
3rd - if you feel confident doing this, turn off the pc, open the case and just check to make sure that there are no internal cable resting on fans or on the power supply. Lastly, if none of things fixes the problem and your machine is under warranty, I'd send it/take it back to the place you bought it from for a replacement (remember to back up any data you have on your computer first though otherwise you'll lose it)

My computer died and won't turn back on.... when i press the power button i get the power led light for a split second then it goes off... nothing else turns on such as the fan or hard drive... it will not


This sounds like a power supply failure inside of your desktop.
If you're good with a screwdriver, you can order a replacement power supply from Gateway and replace it yourself or you can take the desktop in for service.
On the Gateway web site support page, it provides you with all of the equipment installed within your desktop including the part numbers of the power supplies used.
The power supplies listed are:

grn_arrow.gif100929 - 300 Watt Bestec Power Supply

Power supply led blinks but will not power up


My gateway was powered up and I came back into the room and it was not. It would not turn on so I checked the power supply with the paper clip jump method (which is the only thing I know how to do) and the green light along with the fan turns on. While it is plugged into the pc, it blinks with no fan running. The power supply is an ATX 300-12EB3. The Gateway is 556GE. Thank you for any help I can get on this.

Gateway gt4010, wont power on.


The fan turning off will be the cause of the PC shutting down.
This could be caused by a faulty fan or bad connection to motherboard.
1. try reseating the fans power plug on the motherboard
2. if that doesn't help, try replacing with new fan.
3. if that doesn't work then most likely motherboard problem

Gateway M-6307 power dies on boot up (reaches widow screen dies)


Hi,

Make sure that it must be charged. If you are sure, there might be a problem of overheating.

If you check, there is a CPU fan. Overheating might cause thie.

Use a vacuum to cool on the fan to make it spin manually, hmmm it actually started to work after that.

If not, let me know.

Thanks for using "Fixya".
