Question about Gateway MT6840 Notebook
Try pulling out the battery. Then plug in the power supply and see if you can get it to power on. If so wiggle the plug and see if it shuts off. If either if those are true, en you most likely need your DC Jack replaced. You would want to take it to a laptop repair shop. It is usually $20 for the part and around 1.5 - 2 hours labor for the repair. Requires pulling out the motherboard and desoldering the old jack. And soldering in a new one. No fun
