Gateway ma2 mx6027 not turning on help?


Find another charger and try again! You may have a dead battery and can't get the unit to work because the charge is bad.

My Gateway M-6847 will not turn on. When I press the power button the wireless light and power button light just flashes quickly. Also the battery light in front stays lit while plugged in.


Hi

silly question sorry
but have you charged the battery or plugged the power cord into plug and switched on to try to charge the battery for a couple of hrs without using the laptop

Gateway laptop shuts off even when plugged in


Well, I'm not exactly sure if it is the cooling fan (you would have to see if its working), but it definitely could be an overheating problem. Another problem could actually be the battery, even if you have it plugged in, the battery can still cause it to shut down. If your computer is able, I would try using it without the battery and see what happens. And I believe that the cooling fan will fit. Here is a good site to help you troubleshoot your problem

Computer runs off battery only not the power cord (battery is brand new)


You have a serious problem with the power and charging circuit. Normally if the battery is faulty the laptop can function with the power adapter plugged and running off the mains.
If a techo cannot fix without replacing the motherboard, then replacing the motherboard might not be a cost effective solution.

You salvage the hard drive by inserting it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.
Sorry about this, you have very few options.

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.
