It sounds like this could be one of two things:
1.) The a/c power adapter (power cable) is bad and no longer charges your laptop.  You can check to see if the light on the black box that connects the cable to the wall is illuminated, if so...it probably is not the cable.  If it is not illuminated, you can try plugging it into another outlet to see if it comes on.   2.) This could also be a case of a bad battery.  In which case, you might need to look into ordering a replacement.  
Both the a/c power adapter and the battery replacement can be found online (ebay, etc), but you should try to pinpoint if it is the cable or the battery before ordering parts.  Cables are cheaper than batteries!  
Hope this helped.

SOURCE: Gateway MX6030 bios/boot password reset

How long did you leave the battery out?
To discharge the BIOS you need to short out the battery contacts, or disconnect the battery for 1/2+ hours.
If this does not work the it is near impossible to remove because the password would be stored on an EEPROM chip.
Check with Gateway, they might suggest a motherboard replacement just like IBM.

I'm having a power issue with my Gateway Laptop, model number MX6030. Since I've been having issues I have purchased a backup battery, a replacement AC adapter, and had the contact prong to the motherboard...


You have done all you can with what can be accomplished at a local level in fixing the power issues, but obviously it goes beyond the power jack and charger. This may very well involve the power circuitry on the motherboard itself and how the system uses the power from the charger. If you want to look at it from a dollars stand point, it would be cheaper to change out the motherboard than to try and hunt down this problem that may only be able to be fixed by specialized equipment that can de-solder and solder the miniscule pins of the motherboard circuitry. Just to be sure, have someone measure the voltage output of the charger at the tip and make sure it is within the specs of that laptop. Match the output voltage marked on the back of the charger with what you get on a DC voltage meter.
