Question about Gateway MX8711 Notebook
I TOO HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY GATEWAY LAPTOP -THAT A LOT OF THE POSTS CONCERNING GATEWAYS SEEM TO BE HAVING. I TOO HAVE PURCHASED NUMEROUS BATTERIES AND AC ADAPTERS BUT TO NO AVAIL. I HAVE FOUND OUT THE PROBLEM !!! THE FEMALE PART THAT THE AC ADAPTER CONNECTS TO - INSIDE THE COMPUTER ON THE MOTHERBOARD - IS AT FAULT. IT IS EITHER A BAD PIECE THAT SHOULD BE RECALLED OR GATEWAY HAS INTENTIONALLY MADE THESE PIECES WEAKER IN ORDER FOR THE COMPUTER TO FAIL AND FORCE THE CONSUMER TO PURCHASE SERVICE FROM THEM OR BUY A NEW COMPUTER. REGARDLESS SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE. PLEASE JOIN ME IN FILING A COMPLAINT WITH BOTH THE BBB IN YOUR AREA OR ONLINE, AND FILE A COMPLAINT WITH GATEWAY. THIS PROBLEM SHOULD NOT EXISIT. THANK YOU !!!
NOT KEEPING A CHARGE
I was told by the computer repair company the connection is arching back and shorting out the chargers. To have a connection replaced would be $150 so that is what we are going to do. We have gone through 4 chargers on our gateway also.

and you believe this should be repaired under manufactures warranty.
This never bodes well and creates a negative vibe for the person who will try to help you!
