Question about Gateway N214 Laptop
Sometimes will charge for a few minutes and then stop
If your battery has been installed for a long time [and never removed] you can get CORROSION build-up on your terminals [as with any battery]. This will quite often prevent correct charging from happening.
Try removing your battery and cleaning the metal terminals [also clean the contact points in your computer for the same reason].
High humidity work-place situations can also cause this problem.
OR your battery may be at the end of its "useful life" [around 2 years or so if constantly used without an AC power source]; so you may need to replace your battery.
Most battery suppliers can TEST your battery for you ... ok

I have a new gateway laptop with windows 7 and today it said plugged in not charging 8%. I tried everything and nothing worked so I turned it off and unplugged it and took the battery out and put it back in and it started charging...hopefully this works.

Batteries have electronics data that software has to get to properly charge it. Newer lithium batteries maybe different. But apparently, you have a work around for a lengthy use of the new battery.
