Ok, new battery may not always be the issue. If the jack plug that goes into the back or side of the laptop is damaged, then the only real way to get it to charge is to call the company and send it in. Had to do that with my laptop 3 months ago. but most companies that build laptop's will do this service for a bit of money but will have it back to you in a matter of days, not weeks.

Also, if the battery sat for too long without a charge, or caught a static hit, the batter could be toasted. Which means replacing that. That might be a first option before you go to send in the laptop, and if it works, then great, if not and you have to send the laptop in. then just think of it as having a secondary battery that you can keep charged for a quick swap

My gateway laptop wont charge at all i even bought a new battery and charger for it but it still wont charge or power on at all. if anybody knows wat is wrong please let me know.

This can be caused by either your motherboard or a broken power jack. Most common is the broken power jack. These can be replaced some will be separate from the motherboard and plug into it while others are soldiered to the motherboard and will require adept soldering skills so as to not over heat the circuits near the power jack. Most parts will be available on Ebay or online laptop parts stores including the power jack and if needed the motherboard.

Hi: We have a Dell Latitude D620. The battery is low and blinking. When connecting the power supply, it won't take the charge, keeping blinking. Tried with a different power supply; same problem. So...

Yes you'll need to replace the motherboard if the laptop won't turn on using the power supply (ac adapter) you can either try a known good power supply, but if it still does the same thing you'll need to replace motherboard.
And for the battery you can check it there's a button on that battery to check if it still works good or simply access BIOS setup that will be on f2 check on the battery life it will say if you need to replace it too.

If you have a warranty on the computer that's good.
You can get the parts replacement for free!

Hope this helps!

Gateway W323-UI1 battery shows charge at 100% but then when unplugged from AC adapter for 10 mins or so it says "critical battery" and if not plugged back into AC adapter right away laptop powers off...

You will need to calibrate the battery. When you boot the laptop, it will say very quickly to enter Setup press F2 (or Delete key) or similar. Do that, you will enter the BIOS. Look for battery calibration and run it. Can take a few hours.

Toshiba spa40 or a40

check that the power supply is the correct one for the laptop, check that the power requirements of the laptop match up with what is being supplied by the power supply.
if the labels match, for Toshiba the usual supply voltage is 15VDC, if the supplied voltage is 1 volt below recommended the battery will not charge.
If all appears correct then check the output voltage with a multimeter it should read 15V (-0.25V +1V).
If the power supply is a bit low you'll need to buy a new or used one.
