Question about Gateway MX6124 Notebook

Laptop won't power up

I use it everyday, never a problem, never an issue. I unplugged it to move it out of my way for the day and this morning I plugged it back in and it will NOT turn on. When I hit the power button a red light in the front flashed 4 times and that is all. I opened the back and reseated the hard drive then removed and replaced the memory cards. I put the battery back in and nothing, even when plugged in with the adapter!! HELP!

Shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in, reboot. If it reboots, open Control Panel, Power Options, Advanced power settings, Change Sleep and Hibernate to Never. Adjust the settings to your preference. Set the Screen Saver time. When your laptop is not in use shut it down and unplug, this will prolong life and a reboot everyday will reset your laptop.

Try turning off the laptop, unplugging it, pulling out the battery and holding power down for 30-60 seconds. After that's done, put the battery back in, plug it back in, and turn it on.

I cant turn my laptop off


This problem tends to happen to laptops more than desktops. If your laptop is stuck on you will need to unplug the power adapter and then flip over the laptop and pull the battery out. Now put the battery back in and power plug (optional) and turn it back on. If it is working normally great! If it still won't power off afterward you may have a more serious issue.

Hello.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

Sounds like the battery or possibly the charging circits themselves are the problem. Can you try turning on the laptop with just the power cord in and no battery?
