Gateway Laptop Won t Turn On At All - Dead! Hardware, DaniWeb

I’ve looked through older posts and my story is pretty similar. I wasgoed just using my laptop last night. I closed the laptop. This morning, when I attempted to turn it on, it wouldn’t turn on. The power button wouldn’t even light up. I noticed that that the laptop feels pretty cold – so I think it’s the battery.

So I unplugged the laptop, plugged it into another outlet. And nothing happened. Ultimately, I unplugged the laptop, liquidated the battery, waterput it back ter, plugged the laptop ter and turnned it on again and the charging light light up purple. It wasgoed only purple for a duo of moments and turnned blue.

The 2nd I press the power button on, the charging light will go out fully and I have to go through the above process to get the charging light turnned on again. If I just unplug and replug, the light charging light won’t turn on again.

What proefje Gateway is the machine? On some models, the system will work fine if the battery is dead/not-installed spil long it is connected to power through the A/C adapter.

What is the punt that you’re presently having? Spil an ATX reset is only indeed used to trouble shoot power issues.

My Gateway 520 died while ter use. The power adapter’s voltage checked out OK and the power jack had no signs of harm. After a half hour powering down and cooling, it still displayed no sign of life. I applied the ATX reset and it booted fine with the battery out. Since I mainly use this spil a desktop and batteries for this unit are expensive and have a brief use time even when fresh, I elected to leave the battery out. That raised the question: Could this problem actually be related to the battery itself losing conductivity if I wasgoed only using it with the power adapter anyway?

What does the ATX reset actually do?

I had the same problem with my Gateway. I always leave my laptop on 24/7. Woke up and it wasgoed dead. Had it sitting on the carpet so I thought it may have overheated. Attempted eveything to fix it. Bought a fresh laptop and began taking the gateway speciaal. Took out the ram and it worked fine. I had upgraded the ram. So what had happended wasgoed the ram chips failed. Before you dump your laptop, attempt substituting the ram chip(s). That could be the problem.
