    Yes i got it fixed it was still under warranty at that time so i had to take it back to bestbuy. That was 9 months ago now im having another problem with it . Im not sure whats wrong with it this time and its no longer under warranty . but if i turn my laptop off or let it go to sleep it will not come back on, well it comes on you can hear the fan going and the lights come on but the screen stays black sometimes it will do this for days and then just come on and work normally its the craziest thing ....Most likely this will be the last Gateway ill ever buy

How to turn on a NV5378u gateway laptop

If the laptop does not start, you can do this:
Please use the VGA port (VGA external monitor), also please do these:
1. Unplug the AC adapter,
2. Remove the battery,
3. Remove the hard drive,
4. Press the power button and hold it for 15 seconds,
5. Plug in the AC adapter,
Restart the laptop.
If the problem persist,
Note: Do not insert the battery, and do not install the hard drive.
1. Unplug the AC adapter
2. Reseat the memory (remove it and reinstall it),
3. Plug in the AC adapter,
Restart the laptop.
If those actions do not solve the problem, then your GPU/motherboard is dying.

Nv53 gateway laptop will not turn on, power brick is green,it just won't turn on


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.

My Gateway NV53 has just stopped charing period. The Computer doesn't even reconginize that the charge cord is in. Can someone help?


This happened to me a couple times, the first time, I had to send my computer back to the factory because the DC board was defective but the second time I just had to leave my charger unplugged for an hour or so and then it worked fine. Sometimes, the charger will heat up to a point where it shuts itself off before it literally starts to melt.
Hope this helps, Nathan Taylor

Even tho my web cam says working properly it is not i can not find where to turn it on at > or it doesnt work on oovoo


Install Yawcam from http://www.yawcam.com/
If it works with that, it should work with oovoo. Double check your driver settings.

My nv5378u does not turn on, all i get is the battery light blinks 5 times. help please.


1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
4. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.
