Question about Gateway 4026GZ Notebook

1 Answer

Li-ion S62044L (11.1V)

I owned a gateway labtop. All of a sudden, the battery went out. I cannot use the labtop without plug into the jackwall.

Is there a place I can get my battery fix or I need to get a new one?

First Try charging the battery fully, then try turning on the computer. If it goes out suddenly it will more than likely need to be replaced.

You can request a new battery from the gateway website under customer support.

If you are not sending the battery back and are planning to throw it out if it is no good, Refer to the Material Safety and Data Sheet for proper disposal.

Looking for the longest battery life laptop ?


We’ve yet to see a Windows laptop with battery life longer than 5~7 hours, unless we add an extended battery to the system. But when hpand dell launched its new series of laptops last week, one big push wasfor longer battery life.

When you purchase your notebook, charge the battery to 100 percent,discharge it completely, and then fully charge it to 100 percent againto help the battery remember exactly how much electrical charge it canhold. From then on, you’ll never need to completely discharge the laptop battery again, but always make sure when charging it that you let it reach 100 percent. DeHoop told us to “remember to plug in the laptop AC adapter(or dock/port replicator) whenever you get a chance. Most notebookswill recharge quickly.” Salinas had another tip for your batteries:“Keep them cool. Exposure to high temperatures can be a battery’s worstenemy,” he said

Hope the list can give you some help when you purchase a laptop or battery:

In my gateway mx7120 the power button won't function. Can the computer be turned on any other way,?


Take the battery out and leave the machine connected to the AC power and try to turn it on. If it turns on then your battery is bad. There is a safety feature of LI-ion batteries, if the voltage drops too low, then the machine will not turn on to keep from over charging the battery and causing a fire. You may have to spring for a new battery in order to keep it portable.

Hi I have the LG labtop it just stopped working ,I took it to Matrix they said I must send it to LG but my problem is I do not know wher to find them around JHB I am staying in Soweto. Thank DUDU


Before you do any thing, take the battery out and try to boot the machine on just AC power alone. If your laptop is a recent machine, it more than likely has a Li-ion battery in it. Many machines have a safety feature built into the Li-ion battery that shuts the machine down in order not to overcharge a depleted battery and cause a fire.

Dell Inspiron 6000 (approx 4 years old) has an issue with the power cord internal connection? Battery and Power cord/adapter are fine. Computer constantly switches from battery to AC when powered on. ...


The input jack that is soldered to the motherboard (where the AC jack plugs in) probably has a cold solder joint. Thus the laptop switches from battery to AC power. You can try to have the solder joints
re-soldered.

Power not coming on. get no lights when plugged in.


Take the battery out of the machine. Leave it connected to the AC power and try again to start it. If it happens your battery is a Li-ion and a safety feature is built into the battery pack to prevent your charger from over charging a depleted battery and causing a fire.

The third light from the left is flashing brown instead of green. But laptop is fully working


Sounds like your battery is getting old. I had the same thing happen to me on my Dell Inspiron 220 I bought in late 2005. After 4 years the laptop battery wouldn't take a charge, blinked a brown LED, and would shutdown the laptop if I unplugged it. I went to comptick.com cuz of the low prices and searched by my Laptop Model, TYPE and Capacity rating of the current battery. I have a Li-ion. I found a physically comparable Li-ion that had more capacity Wh. I did a search on forums about 9V vs 14V and found out it was okay to use the higher voltage battery without any harm to my laptop.
I received the new battery within a week, charged it up the recommended time before using it, and it still works fine over a year later. Lasts longer too. My wife's 2005 laptop battery died about a month later and I got her's replaced from comptick.com too.
