Question about Gateway MX6447 Notebook
My gateway laptop is running off the battery despite being plugged in w/power cord. The cord is functional and the light is lit up but the computer keeps running off the battery until the battery is empty and it shuts off. when I take the battery out the computer shuts down - even though is registers the power cord. help
You have a serious problem with the power and charging circuit. Normally if the battery is faulty the laptop can function with the power adapter plugged and running off the mains.
If a techo cannot fix without replacing the motherboard, then replacing the motherboard might not be a cost effective solution.
You salvage the hard drive by inserting it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.
Sorry about this, you have very few options.
