Gateway MX6447 Not Charging Correctly

I have a gateway laptop, the charger has to be pushed in HARD to work. Sometimes it still does not work. My screen blinks on and off as if there is a short. The charger is putting out the correct amount of watts. Could it be something internal?

    the charger so I'm ordering a new on for $20,00 off Ebay and will see what happens. This is the exact same problem I have with my car Radar Detector and it's always the cord so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

    I will you know what happens.

Probably the connector on the motherboard has come loose. i have had to solder a couple connectors back on and it isnt really that hard to do, but that is probably the problem.

Gateway laptop mx6447 keeps rebooting once the windows screen comes up. Wont allow safe mode either

the most common is that your heat sink is full of dust, so the air blowed from the cooler can't pass through so can't cool the processor ( I'm sure that's it) Please, find a manual how to dismantle and clean the heat sink.
hope this works for you ...

Check the battery
Check the power supply
Check the fuse in plug.
See if laptop is charging
If all good then you should be able to start....ooops press the on button..sorry but sometimes the most obvious is the easiest to overlook..
If no life at all from laptop ie no beeps or other noises then your guess is good MOBO dead
