Gateway id49c notebook power issues


http://support.gateway.com/s/notebook/2010/gateway/id/id49C/ID49Cnv.shtml

1) Test the AC adapter (Charger) first.

http://www.itsbattery.com/gateway-ac-adapter/Gateway-ID49C-AC-Adapter.html

Test with a multimeter.
(An economical multimeter can be purchased for as little as $5 to $12. Available in a multitude of stores. An auto parts store is but one example. Checkout aisles of major discount stores, may have them on the rack)

Function knob set to DC Voltage.
(If just a symbol the symbol is a dotted line over a solid line)
If more than one DC Voltage scale set it to the 0 - 50 Volt scale.

Positive (Red) probe lead of multimeter goes to the Center Hole, of the plug end that plugs into the laptop.
Negative (Black) probe lead touches the cylindrical metal shell, on the outside of the plug end.

You should be reading 19 Volts DC.

Also have an assistant gently wiggle the cable from AC adapter to laptop, and power cable to AC adapter (Charger)
Fluctuation in the reading means you have broken wires.

AC adapter checks out OK?

2) DC Power Jack:

The DC Power Jack is the jack on the laptop, that you plug the AC adapter (Charger) into. (DC_IN)

Battery removed, (And AC adapter, 'natch), use a No.2 pencil, and with the eraser, gently see if you can move the Center Pin around.
ANY perceptible movement means damage to the DC Power Jack, and replacement.

3) AC adapter and DC Power Jack checks out?

Problems with the Power MOSFETs used in the power section, on the motherboard, or possibly Ceramic Capacitor failure.
(Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitor, and they are Surface Mount Devices)

Using the HP Pavilion dv6000 series, and Pavilion dv9000 series of Notebook PC's, as an example,

http://mayohardware.blogspot.com/2010/04/important-parts-on-dv6000-and-dv9000.html

Looking down at the second photo with the Alpha and Omega Semiconductor - AO4407 - Power MOSFET circled in Yellow, look at the small rectangular shaped object to it's Right. Has a wide dark band on it.

This is a Ceramic Capacitor.
There is one above it of the same size, one above that one, and one to the right of the top one.
If any one of these, or the Power MOSFETs are blistered, blackened, or bubbled, they need to be replaced.

Due to issues that could arise by replacing, and having more components be bad, or go bad; the logical choice by most tech's is to simply replace the motherboard.
(Also puts more dinero in their pockets)

Can i use this lap top with plug in and not a battery?? where is the plug in?


I BELIEVE so. Some laptops require the Battery to at least be in the laptop, whether they are good, or not.
Others will allow the laptop to run off of the AC adapter (Charger), with the Battery not installed.

Gateway Support > Gateway MD26 series of Notebook PC's > Main Support page,

http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=2364


Click on the - Support Documents - tab.
(Drivers / Applications / BIOS / Patches / Support Documents / etc)

Click on - Product Views - in the list.
Click on - Left View
Power connector

This is where the AC adapter (Charger) plugs in.

Examples, (Note US and Europe have different power plug ends),

http://www.batterytech.com/products.aspx?category=ac_adapter&brand=gateway&model=MD2614U&pid=AC-1990111

[The laptop uses DC electricity. Just like the Battery it has, and flashlight batteries. DC Voltage.
The AC adapter (Charger) converts your household, or business, electricity from AC to DC.
(19 Volts DC. In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries store 3 Volts DC ]

I got a new battery it worked when i got it now it wont charge ac adapter works though after i made sure the battery worked i put the computer away for a present for my daughter i have my own laptop so the...


Hi,
Welcome to FixYa!
Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.


1. Removed the battery.
2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.
3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.
4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.


Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

Laptop won't power on with ac adapter or battery


Could be a combination of things.

1) Battery is low. Not enough power to turn the laptop on.
Caused by;

2) AC adapter has a plug on the end of the cable. The plug plugs into a DC Power Jack on the laptop.

The DC Power Jack is bad.

2a) The DC Power Jack has a bad connection to the motherboard, (Cracked solder joints), and/or the jack itself is bad.

2b) Center Pin is loose in the jack's mount.
The back of the Center Pin where it mounts has become loose.

2c) The plastic body of the jack, which composes the jack's case, is cracked. This allows movement of the Center Pin.

2b, and 2c cause a bad connection with the AC adapter plug.

No charge to the Battery, no power to the laptop.

http://www.laptopjacks.com/view_part/For-Gateway-MX6920-DC-Power-Jack-GW51425.html

[ If this is the case the DC Power Jack needs to be resoldered to the motherboard. The cracked solder joints need to be re-melted, (Reflowed)
Entire laptop needs to be disassembled down to the bare motherboard in your hand.
(No Processor, Ram Memory, or any adapter cards mounted to the motherboard. Nada)

OR,
The DC Power jack needs to be replaced.
This entails disassembling the entire laptop, down to just the motherboard in your hand. (Same as above)

The old DC Power Jack is de-soldered, and a new one soldered in place.

Very FEW computer repair shops have the necessary skill level.
They just want to replace the entire motherboard.
IF one is available.
More Ka-Ching for them also. ]

3) The AC adapter is bad.
Not providing power to the laptop, to charge the Battery, nor give power to the laptop without the Battery.

AC adapter cord from adapter to plug, which plugs into the laptop, (DC Power Jack), may have a break in it.

May be an intermittent contact provided by wiggling the cord.
If this is the case the wires have stretched, and broken.
Wiggling causes the wires to briefly touch, and make contact.

Where this cord meets the plug itself. A lot of times there is a break in the wires in this area.

Solution is to replace the AC adapter. There are universal AC adapters you can buy, or perhaps Gateway still has some for sale.

Cx2620 gateway wont turn on


Possibly Need a New DC Jack In Your Laptop... the DC JAck Is The Port Where Your AC Adapter Plugs Into...

Though You SHould as well Check For Proper Power To Your CHarger Cord.. Not all AC Cords That Have Their Lights On Are Able To Charge...

To CHeck If It's The DC Jack... Remove Your Battery..... Plug In the AC Adapter Cord... Power On... If You Get No Lights/ No Power/ No Fans Etc..... It's Your DC Jack
