Having problems with your Gateway PC Laptops ?

This laptop no longer charges and does not turns

\015 This laptop no longer charges, since no indications wer seen, and does not turns on after pressing the power switch.\015

Answers :

When you hit the power button, do any lights flash? Did it just happen overnight or did you have to move your power cord in just the right position for it to work and it got worse over time?

First of all, check the power adapter with a multimeter. See if it is outputting the correct voltage (19volts?). If the cord is okay, then you need to look more at the motherboard itself.

A common problem if for the power port (where you plug adapter into) on the computer to break the solder connection to the motherboard. This is caused from the power cord being jostled around from normal use.

If this is your problem, it is fixable.

You can send it in for warranty work.
You can replace the motherboard.
You can take it into an electronics repair shop and have them resolder/replace the port.
You can take it apart yourself if you are experienced with soldering circuit boards.

I would have to physically see your computer myself to be 100% sure of your problem, I am just going by your description. So this leaves the possibility that there is a different problem that is causing all of this.

Hope this helps.
