SOURCE: My laptop battery won't charge
possible when the old AC adapter blew it took part of the power management circuit with it, This is the circuit that detects and charges the battery, I'm not sure whether this a seperate replaceable daughter card or whether it is part of the main motherboard. you will need to investigate this (or send it for a service)

Go to CONTROL PANEL / POWER OPTIONS / POWER METER. Is the battery charged or charging?
If POWER METER says the battery is charged, you have a motherboard problem. Take it to a tech.
Do you have a voltmeter?
Remove the battery and check for voltage at the laptop's battery contacts, while it is plugged in. No voltage = charging circuit defect. A blown internal fuse or other motherboard problem. Take it to a tech.
Voltage OK or no voltmeter - take it to a tech.
A qualified technician should have a schematic and other technical documentation for your model It can be rather difficult (expensive) and hit-or-miss to locate possible fuses without the factory paperwork.

Yes, more than likely you will need a new power supply. You can locate them at any computer store.
I hope this solution is helpful. Please remember to rate this solution.

Might be the solder on the jack connecting it to the motherboard . Take it into your local computer shop and have them re solder it unless it is under warranty the i would call Gateway
