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.

Flashing is either an error code or the set trying to boot up--some of the Mitsubishi sets if power removed will blink for a minute and then stop--then the set can be turned on.

If the only light you have on is the power light, it is most likely dead. You try unplugging the router then plugging it back in to see if this clears the issue. If it does, the issue will probably come back. Your best bet is to replace this router.

Since last two three days my laptop's, em350, battery charge indicator won't turn blue after three hours. Please help!


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.

If left unplugged fro the laptop for a few hours, or if the charger itself is moved from room to room, occasionally we get an issue where the green light that indicates power does not show up at all. The...


If light you are talking about is on the power supply itself, you need to replace the power supply. Look on E-Bay.

If the light you are talking about is the AC power light on the laptop, then there are two things that are most likely. First is the power receptacle in the laptop. I have personally seen many of these fail. The other thing is the battery. With the system Off, and power supply disconnected, remove the battery. Wait a couple of minutes and put back in and plug in charger. If it continues to happen then it is most likely the power receptacle in the laptop.

Best of luck, Jim

What is the proper way to charge the Pronto M51


Eduardo After using your chair and the battery level lights are down with yellow or red lights showing just plug the chair into the wall socket and let er rip. Now really after using your chair during the day and you are ready for bed just plug in the charger and let it charge over night. In the morning unplug the charger and you should be set for the day. If you don't use the chair everyday always put it up with a full charge and about once a week plug it in and let it charge overnight. Never leave the chair plugged in all the time and never leave it for more that 24 hours. The charger has two lights on it one red and one yellow or green that are hard to see because they are under the rear cover. When the chair is fully charged the yellow light turns green and you can unplug the charger and you should have a full charge. Hope this helps you
