Having problems with your Gateway MX3228 Notebook ?

I have a gateway 3250GZ laptop, the DC in jack

\015 I have a gateway 3250GZ laptop, the DC in jack and power supply have been replaced with new ones, yet I still do not get power unless I push the dc plug into the jack with some force, any Ideas??\015

Answers :

\015\012double check your power cord! i just went thru 3 days of troubleshooting my Gateway M6318. Thought it was my dc jack.... after tearing down my laptop... finding the jack in tact, soldering in tact. testing my power cord... off and on for 3 days.. it was reading 19v.. which is what it should... but as of today began zero reading on tester. Tomorrow I will buy a new power cord to see if this was the correct problem... wish i would have found the above reference site before all the other troubleshooting i had done... tearing down my lap top, pulling, tugging, twisting my power cord to get a good charge.... etc. hope this helps!
