Question about Gateway 450ROG Notebook

2 Answers

My notebook is heating and wont turn completely on when I press the on button. It keeps flashing a red light where the green on light should be. When I press the off button, it turns back on partially by itself The fan comes on and all the lights start flashing green except the on light. It stays red. What in the world is going on. My sons were on it and I have no idea what happened. Can it be fixed? Im on my daughters computer now.

Try to turn off the computer, remove the cables and battery on it. Then press and hold the power button for 8 secs. Reinsert the cables and battery on the laptop and turn it on. If it does not turn on, try to turn on using the power cable only and remove the battery. If it is still not , check if your laptop is heating up. If it is, cool it down for at least 4-6 hours. Then turn the laptop on. If it does not work, call gateway for a scheduled repair on your laptop. Cause: motherboard problem...

  • I take it you are refilling the toner cartridge...
  • Switch the printer off.
  • Press and hold the green button on your printer and turn the printer on. You will see that the lights flash for a moment and then turn off. After a few seconds, the attention light will turn on followed by ready light and the green light. Keep pressing the green button. In a few seconds, the attention light and the ready light will turn off.
  • Push the toner rotate button while you continue pressing the green button. As you briefly push the toner button, you will see the light flashing. Release both the toner button and the green button.
  • Repeatedly push the red button (cancel button). Now all the working lights on the printer will turn off.
  • Open and close the lid of HP printer once. The light will start blinking.
  • Press the green button. Your HP toner cartridge chip will be reset.

    After pressing the on button it turns green for 5 seconds then it flashes yellow/orange for a second then it flashes red.


    Yellow Light of DeathThe "Yellow Light of Death" or YLOD is the common phrase people use to describe the following sequence when they try to turn on their PS3:

    • Press Power Button
    • Red Light Flashes Three Times
    • Yellow Light Flashes
    • Green Light Flashes
    • Beeps Three Times
    • Red Light Flashes

    The sequence above may vary a bit but you do see the flashing yellow light (sometimes shows up as orange) that normally you would not see when operating your PS3. The YLOD is a general hardware fault that can mean a lot of things. However, one of the problems is cracked solder that leads the PS3 to think one of its internal chips is not connected or is broken somehow. Cracked solder can happen when the chips get too hot (RSX most likely) and leads the motherboard to start bending, which may crack the solder. Changing the power supply (lower the average wattage going to the chips to lower the heat) and better thermal compound (heat dissipates faster to the heatsink) may prevent this error from occurring. However, if your PS3 has already had the YLOD, then you can reflow your motherboard every few months to keep it working (but it is not a permanent fix as the YLOD usually comes back).

    I have a digistat scr with a flashing red light and no heating there is nothing wrong with the batteries, this only occured after a poweer cut.


    Try this first before condeming the unit.

    1. Turn off the power supply to the Digistat SCR (receiver unit)
    and leave for 5 seconds.
    2. Turn on power to SCR unit and check red light is on.
    3. Press override button No.2 and check the green light comes
    on and boiler fires.
    4. Press & hold down button No.1 (Keep depressed), then
    press No.2 and keep depressed. {The Red LED light will flash
    a couple of times and then it will go out}
    5. Now release both the buttons – {the two LED lights should
    come back on}
    6. Get the Digistat+2RF/+3RF unit and stand two metres away
    from the SCR unit with the Digistat+2RF/+3RF unit in your hand.
    7. Remove the battery cover and fit the batteries.
    8. The Red LED light on the SCR will now flash for approx. 7
    seconds.
    9. This confirms that the radio signal is being sent and
    received.
    10. The Digistat+2RF/+3RF and the SCR are now successfully
    linked by a dedicated RF address.

    Powering on


    OK ... after a lot of trial and error, I got mine to work. I think it may be a really low charge or something. I had to press the power button until it was completely dark ... no flashing faint green or any colors. Then when I plugged it in, I got a solid red and left it for awhile. Then when I pressed the power button I got yellow, red and green ... the computer recognized it and then got a solid yellow.

    Before when I had it plugged in, I'd get a lot of red random flashing ... and it just didn't seem to charge at all ... even after a full day.

    I think the issue was that it was in this "flashing state (red when connected, very faint green when disconnected)" It wasn't easy to get it to turn off completely. Most of the presses of the power button didn't change the state at all. But if I got it just right, I could see the faint green light go off. That's when I plugged it in and got a solid red light, and eventually a good charge.

    Hope this works for some others.
