First of all, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether

Why isn't battery connecting to laptop?


The battery will be dead or faulty in that case regardless of whether it shows full charge or not.
Replacement Li-ion batteries are not expensive for that gateway unit.

Gateway 7322 Notebook. Can't get the battery only


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Gateway M 6843 won't turn on


You may have already done this, but remember many laptops require that you remove the battery for about 30 sec. as
well as disconnect the AC power to reset them.
Always try this when everything appears completely dead.

Gateway laptop Model No. NEW95 won't charge


If the main battery is not charging properly and you state the charger and battery are fine, then there is only one possibility, the charge circuits on the motherboard are defective, this is a very rare situation and I have seen it once in all the years of service, make sure the battery is not the problem because in most cases it is.

My six month old, LT gateway netbook wont charge...50% percent HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!


sounds like you'll need to get in touch with gateway for warranty repairs/replacement, though, you may try to remove and reconnect the battery, check for BIOS updates from gateway that may include fixes on battery charging , and test if the battery will have same issue when connected to another system, if available. Try to also leave the netbook connected to the adapter/charger for a few hours while switched off as it can help the battery to charge faster.

When I had XP, my webcam on Skype worked fine. I recently upgraded to 7, however, and downloaded Skype. It says that a webcam is not present. I have the Gateway LT Series 1004U, and have tried downloading...


Did you download the drivers via model or serial number. Generally the webcams drivers that come with Gateway are in three. Be sure you unistall the one that doesn't work before installing the other, restarting your computer each time. Also check the dates of the drives compared to the time you purchase the machine, some driver may be old or updated. Lastly, which i am sure you've done, make sure you have chosen the correct Operating System if you are not downloading the file from the web cammed computer.
