Seems that something must have bent the connector inside the laptop itself. If you are knowledgeable enough you could see for yourself but I would take it to someone for an estimate to see if it's worth your time and trouble having it worked on at that level.

I have an Acer 7736Z the battery isn't charging. The BIOS on the acer support website give me version 2.10 which doesn't seem to match the directions given from previous questions and solution


If your battery will not charge, you need to run a test on some components on the laptop. The battery, the charger and the laptop itself. Once you detect the faulty conponent then you replace it with a new one.

To test the battery:
1.Power off the laptop,
2.Take out the battery,
3.Insert it in another laptop,
4.Check of it will charge,

If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the problem is not from the battery, but if it does not hold a charge, then it means the battery is defective and need to be replaced with a new one.

To test the charger:
1.Unplug the charger from the present laptop,
2.Connect it to another laptop to see if it will charge.

If it charges the laptop, then it means the charger is alright, and if it does not charge the laptop, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced.

To test the laptop:
1.Turn off the laptop,
2.Disconnect your present charger,
3.Remove your present battery pack,
4.Insert a well tested battery into the laptop,
5.Connect a well tested charger to the laptop.

If it powers on, then it and charges, then it means the laptop is working fine, but if it does not charge, then it means the connection port of the laptop is bad.Hope this information was helpful.

Gateway laptop Model No. NEW95 won't charge


If the main battery is not charging properly and you state the charger and battery are fine, then there is only one possibility, the charge circuits on the motherboard are defective, this is a very rare situation and I have seen it once in all the years of service, make sure the battery is not the problem because in most cases it is.

I have put the charger in my laptop and the charger light is not coming on


Please check the voltage on the output of the adapter and if this is absent then the adapter is faulty. check the link below for tips:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r5164850-laptop_power_supply

However if there is voltage on the pins then check the voltage on the battery terminal pins in the laptop. If absent then the motherboard is faulty.

you need to use a multimeter to check and track the path of the voltage/current to confirm the area of fault in the charging section.

My Gateway NV53 has just stopped charing period. The Computer doesn't even reconginize that the charge cord is in. Can someone help?


This happened to me a couple times, the first time, I had to send my computer back to the factory because the DC board was defective but the second time I just had to leave my charger unplugged for an hour or so and then it worked fine. Sometimes, the charger will heat up to a point where it shuts itself off before it literally starts to melt.
Hope this helps, Nathan Taylor

I have a gateway mp8708 and it wont charge, boot, or even power the charging led. i tested the charger and itd fine. what could be the problem?


One of two things are likely your problem:

1) The battery is so dead that it's preventing any power from reaching the rest of the PC. Try pulling the battery out, plugging the laptop in, and turning it on.

If that doesn't work,

2) The motherboard power converter is burned out. If this is the case, unfortunately you will need a replacement motherboard or a replacement laptop.

Good luck, and hope this is helpful!

My laptop charging port is not working properly. My Charger is running properly but the charging port of the laptop is not working.It is not getting charged.Now the laptop is totally off and now i cant...


Hello,

There are three possible parts of the computer which cause the problem.

1. ac adapter or charger
2. battery
3. motherboard

The charger is working fine which leaves the battery and the motherboard to be the possible reasons for that certain problem. What you need to do is to check which one is really the part that's causing the problem.

Here's what you need to do:

1. Remove the battery from the laptop.
2. Turn the computer by using the charger alone. If it turns on then, the battery needs to be replaced. If it doesn't then it's a motherboard problem which is a very complicated situation. You need to see a computer technician for a motherboard problem.

My gateway netbook wont charge, they sent me a new battery but again it will not charge, what could be wrong?


Hello,

The problem might be either from the charger or from the laptop.

To confirm and repair if it is the charger, all you have to do is to plug the charger on another laptop to see if it will charge, if it does not charge, then you know the fault is from the charger, and the solution is for you to replace it with a new one, before you replace it, try to connect another power cord to the charger, because sometimes the power cord might have been burnt, that have happened to me twice and replacing the power cord solved the problem. But if replacing the power cord does not help, then you need to change the power cord.

To confirm and repair if it is the laptop, plug in a new charger to the laptop, if it does not charge, then you need to understand that the charging port of the laptop is faulty and needs to be replaced, have a repairman replace the charging port for you.

Take care and good luck

I have a gateway MT6840. I am having charging problems.


This problem requires the dismantelling of the system and the socket either being resoldered to the motherboard or replaced if it is damaged. if you cannot or are not comfortable with doing this yourself, you will need to get a tech shop to do this for you.

My battery is not charging and i just replaced charger


There is probaly a loose connection from the input for the charger.
but sometimes thats not the problem.
This happenned to me before , and I just called the company that made the laptop, and they said to just buy a new battery instead of going through the trouble of trying to repair it, which would take about 15-$ and 2 weeks. I would just buy a new battery for about 30$.
