Hello cheryl50;

Sorry. There is no way to tell from the information you provided.
What model of Gateway is it? How old?

When you plug in the AC power cord and press the ON button - what happens?

Aprently the gateway has closed and you are not welcome in any longer.... This is a very vague question. Look at battery and power connections reseat ram hard drive PCi cards. Hold power button down like 20 seconds. if nothing then I would assume bad power supply or bad motherboard..

gateway (but also dell, HP, emachine) = Flaky system = flaky mobo = 300$ repairs = not worth it

Get an Asus or Msi laptop instead.
