Question about Gateway Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My Gateway 560GE will not power on. I shut it down last night, and now when you press the power button it flashes and goes right back out. When you hold the power button down, the power pulsates like it's being cut off somehow. I tried unplugging it, letting it sit, and trying again, but still no luck.

or try holding power button for a few seconds (10) then turn it back on. as a last resort you could try take the battery out, disconnect it from the power adapter, hold down the power button for 30 seconds and then place the battery back in and the power adapter and try powering it on?

My Gateway M-6750 laptop was working last night but today when I tried to turn it on the power button light flashes on and off and nothing else. I have unplugged it and removed the battery and held down...


Remove the main battery and the power supply charger, allow a few minutes to get rid of any residual charge. Replace the battery, press power, if there is no change, remove the battery. Now plug the power supply back into the laptop, press the power, if it starts up the battery is bad and needs to be replaced.

After a power outage, tried to power computer. All I got was flashing keyboard and power light while I held in the power button. As soon as I let go, everything goes dard. No start up sounds or anything....


Sounds like it could be the power supply was damaged from the power outage. If you have another PC you could pull the ATX power supply out and install it in the gateway and see if it boots up. Power supplies are fairly inexpensive so look for an aftermarket one...buying a replacement from Gateway will cost alot more. If the power supply turns out to be good then remove one device at a time the try to boot up. Sometimes a bad cd-rom drive or harddrive can cause a problem. My best guess it is the power supply.

M-series gateway (m1629) press start button, nothing


Taken apart, looking for abnormal solder etc checked powers switches decided that this unit was acting like it may have shut down due to excessive heat issue. pulled battery on board, tested ok, re-installed everything and found that this unit now is active. Conclusion: I suspect the bios shut this unit down, hard reset correct this issue.

My cpu will not power up the blue light just flashes when pushed and held


Flashing power light is a sign of a hardware failure. First unplug the pc and give it about 30 seconds then turn it back on. If it goes back to a blinking power light you have a hardware issue and will have to get that checked out.

Sounds like there may be more than one problem, so first let's make sure you shut the computer down completely:

1) Press and HOLD the power button on the computer tower until it goes completely dark. A single press often puts the computer in sleep mode, so holding the key for approximately 5 seconds usually forces a power off. After doing that, If you're still not sure if it powered off, unplug the AC power cord from the back of the computer tower for a few seconds and plug it back in. Now, make sure all other cables (monitor, keyboard, mouse) or wireless USB adapters for keyboard and mouse are securely plugged in where they are supposed to be.
2) Press the power button on the computer tower briefly to turn it back on.
3) Everything may be working now, but if not:
a) Monitor still dark? Make sure the monitor is on and plugged in, also, there is often an input source button on the bezel of the monitor to toggle between input sources (such as VGA, DVI and even HDMI). Press and wait a few seconds for a picture, repeat slowly at least 3 times.
b) Keyboard or mouse still not working? If wireless, make sure they have fresh batteries and that the wireless USB adapter is plugged into a USB port firmly. If wired, make sure the cables are plugged in firmly into the correct places on the back of the computer.

If all that fails, your new computer may be faulty and need to be returned to where you purchased it.

Flasing red light


The flashing red indicates that either the fileter cover or the lamp cover is not installed correctly. If both are installed properly and secured, the unit will require service.
