Computer will power up but not boot. Screen remains black. Battery charges.


If the screen's backlight doesn't come on at all, that's a new screen. You can find more from Gateway's support website. If the screen lights up but stays completely black, that's a motherboard issue, same fix. If the Gateway logo comes up but never goes into windows, that's most likely a hard drive issue, same fix. If you see an error message from Windows, that's a Windows issue. You could use the recovery DVDs that came with the system to fix that. Just put them in and turn the computer on. Press F8 repeatedly until you see an option to boot to DVD. Then follow the instructions.

Solo 9100 battery


Well, 8 years is an excellent life for any laptop battery. Being that old it will either be a nicad or nimh battery, both of which suffer from battery memory. There is very little you can do. Sometimes, charging the battery as much as possible, REMOVE IT FROM THE LAPTOP, put it into a plastic bag, seal it against moisture, and then put it into a freezer for 12 hours. Replace it into the laptop, charge it again, repeat twice more. If the battery has a bit of life in it you may be able to reclain SOME of it's capacity back. This is a last ditch effort, and should be carried out as a last option. That leaves either buying a new battery, this eBay link will take you to one

It's probably time to replace the whole laptop though.
Hope this helps

Windows does not load after gateway logo


This sounds like you have no operating system on your laptop. I bet someway, just as I did before, you have lost your operating system, and it needs to be reinstalled on your computer.

Here is a picture of the hard drive caddy itself. http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-GATEWAY-SOLO-2500-LAPTOP-HARD-DRIVE-CADDY-ADEAL_W0QQitemZ6863173195QQcmdZViewItem

You see that hole in it towards the front?. If you look underneath the laptop you should see a tray that looks like that with a screw in it. Just take the screw out and the whole caddy should slide right out.

Sounds like the cable is not securely connected to the motherboard.
I would doubt the OS is responsible for this problem.
Nice little machine, the service manual is available for download for free. Might give a shot at refastening the cable.
If you're not that enthusiastic about taking a laptop apart, possibly an external mouse?
Put XP back on. If you have enough memory, it runs just fine.
Good luck
