Assuming the charger is ok and the battery is ok, you may have a main motherboard fuse which has blown (would explain the lack of power), if the fuse is not the issue, then it looks like there are other damaged components on the board

Gateway nv52 won't charge


It sounds like you either have a dead mother board or a bad power inlet. Did the machine work with the new battery while it was charged? If so, then the battery connector was good and the inlet was bad. If not, your motherboard could be dead. I've also seen where a bad battery connector would syphon off enough power to not power on the machine or charge the battery.

Gateway 825gm wont tun on. just replaced on/off switch. greem light on power supply and mother board blinking green


Make sure the small cable from the switch to the mother board hasn't come loose. It comes loose fairly easily when reinstalling the cooling fan plenum. Its happened to me twice. Its even possible to plug it in the wrong place. Doesn't hurt to double check.

LAPTOP WILL NOT TURN ON . GATEWAY 8738. NO LEDS LIGHT ON FRONT. DOES NOTHING BATTERY IN BATTERY OUT. WILL NOT TURN ON. I SUSPECT MOTHER BOARD


You could well be correct but just to make sure.

You need to beg, borrow or steal another known good power supply/charger unit and see if that works. You see if yours in faulty, its not charging the battery or supplying power to the laptop.

If nothing glows after that it could be the charger circuit on *********** board or just the power connector on the motherboard .

The laptop will not power on and has a fully charged battery. The power on button will not light when pushed. When plugged in the led light on the front edge of the laptop should start out pink then turn...


Hi
I presume you checked the DC power supply. Don't use a generic power supply on this model, because that will cause alot of different symptoms. I use the exact same model on service calls. A further way to test the mother board is to remove the CPU and memory. Carefully provide power and look for lights. If none, my next step would be to refloat the video chip. This requires special equipment. A replacement mother board without processor on eBay is $49.00 so it might be time to consider that. Good luck

The screen on my M460E goes blue with two black lines through it. What could it be, video card problems?


Hi,

Yes this indicates that your video card has gone bad and would need to be replaced. Sadly, the whole mother board would have to be replaced. Hope I helped
