    Unit power LED does not respond to any power source (power supply, ac adapter, new ac adapter). No indication that power is reaching the board. Not fans, leds or anything.

Sounds like there is a serious fault in the motherboard. I'm assuming you checked that the AC adaptor is working ok? Check first that there is power to the adaptor and power out of the adaptor by ensuring the green led is on and not flashing, a flashing led indicates power is not making a circuit in the motherboard and therefore a faulty powerboard.

I replaced the ac adapter on the motherboard of the Gateway NV5207u and now when I try to power it on, won't power on. battery light red


When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.

Charger light goes out when plug in computer


it could be that the connection jack on the mainboard has been dislodged from the solder joint, common among Gateway comuters and HP units too. is the DC jack loose from the notebook ? if so thats the issue it seems. You will have to bring it to a computer person to resolder. if not and youc an do it yourslef, save money -- but be careful not to damage anything on the mainboard.

I have a Gateway NV5207u and it will not boot up. It runs Windows 7 and I have been having a lot of problems with it getting internal errors, goes to blue screen with an error listed (hardware problem)...


Before you go that route, have you tried a hard restart? To do so, you need to disconnect the power cable to the unit, then, press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds, then, reconnect the power cord, and see if it will then power up. Good luck, because I know the pain of not having an operational computer.

I can't get it to power on. The battery lite lights up but the computer itself won't turn on.


Please remove the Battery and connect the Computer to direct AC outlet. Also, check if the Power supply is working normally. If the same issue persists, then the service is required
