My gateway profile 4 desktop will not power on. nothing happens when I push the power button. measured 12v at the computer end of power cord. switch look ok. worked fine yesterday.


Hi,

Remove the power cord and then take out the battery. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds, then plug in just the AC powercord and try turn the laptop on.

If it turns on let it boot into the operating system and then shut it down and put the battery back in.

Hopefully this will resolve the problem but if it doesn't turn on again with the battery in there is a problem with the battery.


Post back if you need more advice.


Good luck.

I'm trying to fix a gateway MFATXNIN NMZ 500SE


Sir,
  1. Press and hold the power button down for 10 seconds.
  2. Make sure that the power and hard disk light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are on.
  3. Check the power cable connections:
    • From the electrical outlet to the AC adapter.
    • If applicable, make sure the LED on the AC Adapter lights.
    • From the AC adapter to the notebook.
    • Make sure that the power strip is on.
    • Make sure that the surge protector is on.

  4. Try another electrical outlet.
  5. Disconnect any external devices, like PC cards, digital cameras, or external drives.
  6. Disconnect the notebook from the docking station (if applicable). Remove any power strips and surge protectors. Plug the power cord directly from the notebook into the electrical outlet.
  7. Remove the battery and reinstall the battery. Refer to the documentation that came with the notebook.
  8. Remove any newly installed software or hardware.
  9. Remove any additional memory. Refer to the documentation that came with the notebook for memory removal instructions.
  10. Shut down the computer, and then remove the drives. Refer to the documentation that came with the notebook.
  11. Push the hardware reset (if applicable). Refer to the documentation that came with the notebook.
Thanks Good Luck

-Orange light on Power-up button stays lit. -No Video, just black screen. using AGP Video card TNT 32mb / Model CT5823 I've replaced the battery, double checked the cables, Power supply is good. Gatew


This is typical of a failed power supply. Look on the back of the power supply, there may be a red switch for input voltage. Unplug the power cord, flip that switch a few times and then plug the cable in and try again. If nothing changes, see if there's a small black button on the back of the power supply. If there is, unplug the power cable and press the button and hold it for 10-15 seconds. If an LED flashes or turns on, then plug the cable back in and try again. If this all fails, replace the power supply.

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

Will not turn on


Try the following:

Check that power supply is plugged in to a live source.

Certain models had an additional power switch on the power supply itself. This would be located to the rear of the computer within 3-4 inches of where the power cord plugs in. Make sure it's on.

Press the power button on the front panel.

Press the space bar. The computer may be in sleep mode..

Gateway desktops usually have a small 'reset' button on the front panel. Press it.

If it still doesn't respond, I'd need to know a little more info before moving forward.
  • Are there any lights lit? (K/B, front panel)
  • Can you hear a fan?
  • Does the monitor turn on?
  • What (if anything) has changed since it worked last?
  • What was the last thing you were working on?
  • What model is it?
  • What steps have you taken so far?

Bought an optical mouse today when i turn off the computer it still stays lite. how do i fix this.item #81250NS


The model of mouse (SAKAR 81250NS) you have has fancy external lighting, but should get its power from the computer's PS2 port , so unless the mouse has its own internal battery for keeping itself lit up, your computer is not actually turning off, but perhaps just going into power save mode. I am not that familiar with that mouse brand, but to check if it has its own internal battery, shut down the computer all the way and then unplug the computers power cord. If the mouse still is lit up, then your computer is not the problem.
