Specs: Windows XP
Gateway 600ygr wont power on. I did not work on my Gateway for about 3 months. The battery is dead so I now plugged the power adapter. No light came on. No beep. No sound from the fan either. I left the power adapter overnight maybe it will charge the battery but nothing happens. The Gateway is using window XP.

On some laptops a fully expired battery can stop the laptop powering up on mains power so try removing the battery.

Also, you will definitely need a new battery if you do manage to get the laptop working again on mains power. If a battery is left uncharged for 3 months or more it becomes unusable and won't charge up.

If the laptop will not power up even with battery removed then it's obviously something more serious and you'll need to let a laptop repair centre take a look at it if you think it's worth spending money on it. But be prepared for them telling you "sorry we can't help you if it won't power up". That's what I got told when I took a "dead" laptop into my local repair shop for a friend.
