If laptop will not turn on and the power-supply is fine then it will be the computer itself and the only way to fix that would be a new motherboard due to the everyting oinside the laptop is pretty much connected to the mother board and not able to replace it without replacing the motherboard

Remove the main battery and power adapter, allow a few minutes for residual charge to drain off, plug in power supply, if yes! the main battery needs to be replaced, if no change! the DC jack in the laptop is a common fault, put thumb around jack and bend it sideways "gently" at the same time press power repeatedly, if it power up the DC jack needs to be resold-ed back on the motherboard or replaced. If after all of this there is still no change, "suspect the motherboard"

Pc will not start, will not power on.

Thank you for using FixYa
Some laptop computers have a reset button on the bottom, look and see and push it in and try again. Sometimes you can remove the battery and leave it out for a few seconds and then put it back in and try again. It may not have charged up completely, be sure to leave it plugged in for 12 hours and try again. It could be the adaptor and not the computer but it might also be the battery. A new battery can be purchased. If all else fails, take it to a local computer store and they will be able to tell you where the problem is most likely.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

Remove battery, press and hold power button for 5 seconds and then put back in to see if it starts. If not, power supply is most likely faulty

What was the Watts rating on the wrong power supply? Compare it with the watts on the correct adapter.You may have fried your laptop. I would have a tech check it out before you buy a new one. There are many companies available offering a free diagnosis in Fix Ya's repair directory.

Gateway MT6840 Laptop will not power up


have you already tried to power up your laptop without the battery, only with the powersupply docked in?
If this works, you´ll have to replace the battery or use the laptop without a battery.
If this doesn´t work, just take the full battery from the other laptop try to power up the laptop without the power supply docked in.
If this works, your latop motherboard is broken and till it is replaced, you have only the chance to work with a battery and reload it with another latop.

Gateway 500xl pc will not turn on power button is lit up yellow

A LOT of Gateway computers will go into this catatonic state because of a dead battery. The battery is on the motherboard -- it looks like a metal disk about 1" in diamter. Check it or replace it. This applies to laptops too (not the actual laptop battery, the CMOS battery -- a laptop will have one on the motherboard too)

Hope this helps
