Question about Gateway MX6448 Notebook
When i plug in charger no lights come on. when i push power button a red light blinks and that is it. the charger still works on a different computer.
It may very well be a bad jack but it also could be a bad battery that is not retaining charge. Yes, a bad battery will cause many laptops not to turn on.
1- how does the charger jack fit; is it loose or wiggle when pluged in? or does it fit snugly with no movement when plugged in? If the charger no longer fits snuggly or moves a lot when plugged in, it may very well be a bad dc jack. Not a task for a DIYer but well worth having fixed.
2- Try removing the battery and see it powers on the charger only. Some laptops will not work without a battery and some will. If this is a Gateway, it probably will work without a battery.
