HI

I might be the operating system is corrupted. Try to reinstall the operating system, using the Operating system installer CD and when it load. It means the problem is the corrupted operating system.

If not, we have to eliminate the cause of your problem.

    The problem might be the jack socket is defective. As you mention, it didn't turn on when you replace the Power Charger. The cause would be defective jack socket. Did you shoulder correctly the when you replace the jack socket. Here is the link for the http://www.laptoprepair.co.uk/how-to-rep....

Hello.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

Gateway kav60 not charging. i have to wiggle the cord and sometimes it refuses to charge.


I guess you've got a broken laptop power dc jack or power cable.


Symptoms of a broken Laptop DC power jack:


- The laptop only operates when you hold the DC power plug in a certain direction (DC jack is broken or loose).
- The laptop only runs on battery power (no power is getting through the DC jack).
- The laptop gets no power at all.
- The laptop will not charge the battery.
- The laptop switches from AC power to battery power intermittently due to a loose or broken power jack.
- The laptop suddenly shuts off.
- The DC jack may feel loose.
- Sparks come out of the back of the laptop when you insert the power plug into the DC jack.

WON'T CHARGE


If you have no power and the battery won't charge. There is a short in your DC jack socket. This problem is common among gateway computers. If you can solder, you might want to take the computer apart and put a new power jack in there. New power jacks costs $2. Otherwise, you should look for a new motherboard on ebay and buy it for a little over $100 and put it in yourself. Getting it professionally repaired can be very expensive and not worth it.

Okay if my gateway m285 pc tablet wont turn on how do i know if its the charger or the battery itself?


just do a simple test. plug your charger in AC mains, at the jack end, insert a wire and then try to make instant contact with the jacket of the jack. you will see a brief spark. If spark is there, it means your adapter is good. rest you know that if charger is ok and still laptop is not working it means that there is something wrong with the power section inside the laptop. Even with a bad battary, if adapter is good, laptop will work, provided power section of the laptop should be ok.
cheers

Gateway MX8738 power adapter problem


Does the DC jack on the laptop wiggle or feel loose?

If that's the case then eventually the jack will go bad will have to be replaced. Most computer shops charger around 60-100 for the repair.

If it's the charger itself then just replace it with an ORIGINAL from eBay.

Hope this info helps and if you need more specifics just let me know.
