Question about Gateway M305CRV Notebook
So i took out the battery and unplugged the AC power.. then plugged back in the AC and it booted fine... i am curious to what causes that?? In case i run into it again or is there something more i need to fix??
Sounds like the power jack is loose and the connection is bad.Nove the tip around while its plugged and see by your indicator light if it goes off and on

If your laptop works fine while plugged in but stops working while unplugged it's likely that either your laptop battery is bad or your laptop is not charging the battery properly.
Below are steps that can be taken to help identify the cause of this issue.
Leave power plugged in
Make sure the computer has been charging from the power plug for at least two hours before attempting to unplug it.
Remove and reconnect battery
In some situations the battery can become loose.
Removing it and then put it back into the laptop.
Use a third-party battery utility to determine the total capacity of the battery.
For example, BatteryCare is a free software utility capable of doing this.
Replace battery or AC adapter
If your computer is still in warranty we suggest skipping to the next step.
If the above steps have been completed, we suggest replacing the battery in the computer or AC adapter.
In most situations it's a bad battery.
hope this helps
Try removing the battery from the back and then running it directly through the AC adapter. Sometimes the battery and AC adapter have conflicts and it can cause a laptop to become inoperable.
If this doesn't fix the problem in any way, I would recommend trying a new battery or AC adapter.
hope this helps
