It's not something you should try and fix yourself. If you've eliminated the battery and the charger as being the source of the problems, you will need to return it to Gateway to get it fixed. If you try to fix it yourself and do something wrong, you will invalidate the warranty on top of everything else. Better to be safe than sorry.

If you wiggle the connection to the laptop and it feels a bit loose, then the power connection on the laptop itself probably needs re-soldering. This is a common problem with laptops. Unfortunately unless you can do it yourself or know someone you can, then it will cost quite a bit to get fixed outside of warranty.

This can be a couple of things. The battery, the charger, the internal charging circuit, or the connector.

The battery is not that old but just enough that you could see problems depending on how you use or charge. If you drained it a lot or never used it on the battery this can happen. If the battery was the problem then you would see very short run times when it was fully charged. For example it may run down in say 10-15 minutes or less. The battery may still be under warranty. If you feel a hot spot on the bottom of the laptop after charging overnight this usually means the battery has a problem. The heat is from the charging circuit working pretty hard.

The adapter or charger can be bad but rather rare for it to happen. Usually they work or they don't. Again should be under warranty.

The internal charging circuitry can be having a problem. Not common at all but it happens. Again will be covered by warranty.

Last is the charging plug. This is the connector where the adapter plugs into the laptop. If the plug has been damaged or is loose it won't charge properly. The way to check this is to plug the adapter in and then gently move it around if the plug moves or doesn't feel secure then this has a problem. Usually when this happens the lights on the laptop may flash off and on as it makes proper contact. This may be covered under warranty. When it isn't they will say it is user abuse.

It may take you a bit of watching to see what the problem is. It could be a one time thing ie the connector wasn't plugged in right. It can be a bad battery. Batteries can go quickly but normally they fail fairly slowly over time. You need to check if you have warranty. All of this should be covered on a ~18 month old laptop but you may only have had a 1 year oem warranty.
If you have to pay for anything a battery is $40-$80, a power adapter about $50. The charging circuit requires a new mainboard and the plug depending on the model either requires a new mainboard as its built in or the plug is a seperate piece which can run from $5 to about $100. The battery and the plug are the most common cause for this type of problem.

Sounds like the Battery or Battery contacts, You should figure it out from there. Its up to you to decide the best way to sell or trade your laptop if you desire.

Lenovo 3000 N200 battery not charging.


I just had the same problem. My battery had discharged to less than zero and would not start even though the power plug was in. I tried everything... but what fixed it for me was to remove the power plug, remove the battery, plug in the power cord and start the machine. Once the machine was already booted, I put the battery in and it started charging. Dont know if that will fix your problem, but it fixed mine.

Try another known working battery in the laptop and see if it charges, if it doesn't then its going to be a problem with hairline cracks in the dc jack on the laptop. The solder points underneath the dc jack if they have hairline cracks in them won't allow the battery to charge. Basically the laptop would need to be taken apart and the motherboard taken out.

If you have soldering skills, all that needs to be done is to put new solder on the solder points that hold the dc jack in place.

If after you do this the battery still wont charge then you know for sure the connector is bad and then the connector would need to be replaced.

Toshiba Laptop wont work unless plugged in, i recently bought a new battery think that the battery was the problem and still it doesnt work unless its plugged in. please help me!


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.

Good luck.
