Question about Gateway M275 Tablet PC
Will the table work without the battery.I used it and then put it down for about 2 months and then try to turn it on but it will not.It is not charging either .no lights comes on when adopter is connected. help please.
Battery is probably dead. If it's to far gone, the tablet will not charge or work.
Also, try taking the OEM charger/chord (not some ebay or cheapo gas station charger) and plug it in overnight. It may suprise you and start to charge.

It sounds to me as if your battery is faulty. No way should it take 17 hours to charge. The battery is abviously not absorbing the charge and this could be because one or more cells are defunct. You can just wait until it fails completely or look at getting a replacement before this happens.
Please remember to rate this solution.

At least a 50% chance the power pin inside the computer has been damaged. Taking apart a laptop and getting it back together correctly is a tough job . . . .The part (the power pin) is not that expensive ($ 5-10) but the labor is expensive. If you don;t feel up to the task, have it fixed by a professional and after it''s fixed get a CRD (Cable Retention Device) to keep from damaging the pin a second time.

SOURCE: Wont charge or keep a charge
First off, a google search will show you several companies out there that will replace the cells in your existing battery for around $70. Not bad. However, you mentioned that positioning of the plug can get it to work. The solder joints can become broken from the board, and the small plug in jack will get loose after a year or two of plugging in to it.
You can get a replacement plug at fry's electronics, or many online stores. If you need a service manual, or driver disk set, you can get them at mpcdrivers.com
