Sometimes if charged too long or your not around when the light does go off, after awhile the battery looses its charge. when that happens the charger will start to charge again and it will seem that it isn't working right or charging. in your instruction booklet it should tell you how long it should take to charge. some say 45 min some say hours. set a timer once you find the time recommended for your device, once it goes off unplug if light is off. good luck
If it will not snap back on i am assuming the retainer is broken or missing. Carefully remove another key that you typically do not use such as the one between right alt and control. You will see what an unbroken corretly placed retainer should look like. If the retainer for your x key is lost or broken you may remove the retainer for the key you just removed and your x key should go right back on. If you can find the old retainer or it has come undone, simply reinstall it identically to the working key used for comparison. If there is no internal damage to the key, this should fix your problem.
If you wish to replace it altogether or would like to fix the key used to repair the damged key, you may order replacements for 3-4$.
Hope this helps.
Rechargeable batteries do expire after a while either get new ones or get a battery tester to see how much life they have left. under normal circumstances a new set of batteries last me about two weeks before i have to recharge them and my computer stays on 24/7 including the mouse with at least 5 or more hours of use per day.
Well, 8 years is an excellent life for any laptop battery. Being that old it will either be a nicad or nimh battery, both of which suffer from battery memory. There is very little you can do. Sometimes, charging the battery as much as possible, REMOVE IT FROM THE LAPTOP, put it into a plastic bag, seal it against moisture, and then put it into a freezer for 12 hours. Replace it into the laptop, charge it again, repeat twice more. If the battery has a bit of life in it you may be able to reclain SOME of it's capacity back. This is a last ditch effort, and should be carried out as a last option. That leaves either buying a new battery, this eBay link will take you to one http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NEW-Laptop-Battery-for-Gateway-Solo-2300-2500-9100-9150_W0QQitemZ230370600615QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLaptop_Batteries?hash=item35a32866a7
It's probably time to replace the whole laptop though.
Hope this helps
Li-Ion battery and NiMh battery have completely different charging requirements! Li-Ion battery has much stricter charging requirement and the regulator is normally design to trickle charge at 0.1 Current rating @ 4.2V and then completely shut down. WARNING: if you use a Ni-Mh charger on a Li-Ion battery, then it will erupt and even explode and catch fire! Bottom line is that the rescued Li-ion regulator is not designed for your Ni-Mh pack and you will never get a full charge with it and you will need a completely different regulator board: you are better off putting in a suitably sized Li-Ion battery with inbuilt regulator but with higher current rating if possible. Hope it helps! Let me know how you go.
SOUNDS LIKE A BAD MOUSE, AND WHEN YOU GET THE NEW ONE DO NOT OVER CHARGE. I.E NO CHARGING OVER NIGHT THE DIRECTIONS WILL SAY SOMETHING LIKE CHARGE FOR 4-6 HOURS NEVER DO OVERNIGHT CHARGING WITH ANY ELECTRONICS
