Having problems with your Gateway MX6030 Notebook ?

Gateway MX6030 will not charge or power up. - Gateway MX6030 Notebook

Answers :

It sounds like this could be one of two things:
1.) The a/c power adapter (power cable) is bad and no longer charges your laptop.  You can check to see if the light on the black box that connects the cable to the wall is illuminated, if so...it probably is not the cable.  If it is not illuminated, you can try plugging it into another outlet to see if it comes on.  \015\0122.) This could also be a case of a bad battery.  In which case, you might need to look into ordering a replacement.  \015\012
\015\012Both the a/c power adapter and the battery replacement can be found online (ebay, etc), but you should try to pinpoint if it is the cable or the battery before ordering parts.  Cables are cheaper than batteries!  \015\012

Motherboard I have a Gateway MX6453 notebook and about six months ago replaced the fan and then the battery and the power cord. Recently the notebook would not hold a charge so took it to a local repair service to replace the dc port.

I'm having a power issue with my Gateway Laptop, model number MX6030. Since I've been having issues I have purchased a backup battery, a replacement AC adapter, and had the contact prong to the motherboard fixed as well.

I've had my Gateway M-6843 Notebook for about 18 months. Since the day I bought it from Best Buy, the AC adapter port has been finicky. I'll be using the laptop with the adapter plugged in and the battery charging. Then, if I make the slightest movement, or the adapter cable shifts even a bit, the external power source will disconnect, and the notebook will start running off of battery power only. Until now, the problem could usually be resolved by fiddling with the adapter in the port, unti
