Having problems with your Gateway MX6440 Notebook ?

I have a gateway that has been having a dc jack issue. It started to not charge when the it was plugged in, I went through several power cords just to make sure there was nothing wrong with the power supply. After I searched for common issues I realized the DC jack needed to be replaced. I took it to a shop and they fixed it and gave it back to me.

No Power I have a Dell Inspiron 600m. I was sitting and using my laptop fine last night.

My eee pc 4G surf won't turn on. It started having problems when the power cord was bumped - causing it to immediately shut down. Then it just stopped booting all together. I replaced the power cord and it will begin booting when I initially plug it in and hit the power button, but it goes black before it fully starts. At that point the battery light (orange), the power light and the wireless light begin going off and coming back at regular intervals like it's trying to boot but fails before


Most likely, either the power jack inside the machine (jack itself or solder joints) or the plug on the power cord was damaged; obviously the plug is only a few dollars to replace, the jack also only a few dollars, but much more labor intensive. My e ... ASUS Eee 4G Notebook
