No a/c power light on laptop


Well the first thing you should check is the amount of power output to the power supply. for example the computer needs 12V but the AC Adapter only gives 9V.
If that's not it then the actual green light is not receiving that information from the motherboard. that's not an issue if the battery get's filled up and the laptop works normally . If you notice that the laptop tends to shut down quickly when it's not plugged in then the battery is worn out. These things happen since the a laptop battery becomes very inefficient after 2-3 years.
One more thing - try to rotate the input end of the ac adapter cable. maybe it's not making good contact inside the laptop.
Hope this helps.

I have a problem with a Gateway MT6705 that will not power on. Voltage on adapter is good, voltage can be read from mother board but there is no sign of life. Am I missing something basic? I have done that...

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad.

6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced

I have a Gateway MT6705 Laptop. The battery will not charge. I have replace the battery and the AC Power adapter. Still will not charge. Is the remaing circuitry for battery charging on the Motherboard,...

I am sorry you are having to deal with such a frustrating issue. If you have replaced the power supply and the battery, you have already spent around $200. or more bucks only to have the same problem persist.

Probably the single-most vulnerable part of your laptop is the AC jack where your power supply interfaces with the laptop. Stress and fatigue cause power issues I see in every brand of laptop on a regular basis.

The good news is the part will only cost you between $20-30 bucks. The bad news is that unless you have a low-temp soldering iron and are experienced with soldering components on a circuit board, the repair will cost you around another $100.00. Its a fairly easy and quick repair with the right experience and tools. You will want to get your hands on service manual before disassembling your computer.

There is no additional circuitry on the motherboard you can or would want to bother replacing. Hope this helps FixYa! Please Rate up this solution if you find it helpful.

Gateway mt6705 doesn't charge

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.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

I have a Gateway MT6705 that will not turn on. The power adapter is fine. Other than the DC power jack it there any other reason it would not turn on? Thanks

Remove the battery and plug the laptop. If there is no activity when you push on the power button (not even for a second) your motherboard is defective : it could be only the power jack, but it could be a bigger problem also.
There is a very small chance to be a memory problem. Your model comes with one module of 1024MB. Check the memory :
- if you have 2 memory modules use only one at a time, the other one could be defective or
- check your memory with another laptop or
- use some known good memory etc.

If no activity with good memory that means the first supposition is the right one : motherboard is defective (the power jack or something else). Could be expensive to be repaired or replaced. Verify if the laptop is in warranty and have it checked by a professional.

I have a dell laptop and the charger pin is mest up on the laptop

The power port connector is soldered to the motherboard. So, you would need to replace the motherboard (costly). It would not be worth the cost. Sorry.
