Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
Power supply port? What is that? What battery are you talking about. What model and type of computer is this? If this is a laptop you will have to do the following. You have not really made your question clear. I will try to read your mind.
Sounds like your power plug has come desoldered. This is internal and will have to be taken apart to repair. If you are comfortable with taking it apart you can repair it yourself. If you have not ever soldered anything before or taken a laptop apart before you need to have someone else do it.
If you decide to do it yourself you will need the instruction manual to locate all of the screws. You will need a soldering iron and a camera along with a pencil and paper to draw a diagram and take notes. Laptops have a lot of fragile parts in them that will break. Do not do this if you do not know how. This is something that a qualified tech should do. You will see the plug and you will need to re-solder it back onto the board. One wrong move and you could damage the entire computer. If you try to do this yourself you are on your own and I am not responsible nor is anyone else.
Most of them have a break down on how to take it apart. The best thing that I can tell you is below. The only thing to do if you do not have the manual is to find a screw and take them out one by one. There should be a way to pop off the top part above the motherboard. You pry on both sides and it should pop up to get under it. The keyboard should pop up from the bottom. All laptops are not the same. Just be very careful, but if you are not sure that you can do it leave it alone. I could do it because I have done it before. Step by step directions without being there is very hard to do.
