If your driver are ok then is your computer is in same WORKGROUP like other are(If you are in LAN connection and sharing internet with other).
was there any IP address in your computer before you formatted it? make it confirm and if IP was there then give back the IP to tour connection.

remove the battery get some isopropyl alcohol and qtips and clean the contacts where the battery actually connects to the pc, if that doesn't work it's possible that the IC inside the battery has gone to hell and if that's the case you'll need to purchase another battery.

How to replace Power socket of MX6453 Gateway laptop.?


Generally the power is soldered directly on to the motherboard on a laptop. So for the most part replacing it either means, finding an identical power supply and being really good at soldering, or replacing the motherboard. Either way if you are not very familiar with taking laptops apart, and computers in general, I would recommend you take it to someone who repairs them for a living.

If the laptop is still relatively new....check with Gateway to see if it's under warranty. If it is, they should fix it or replace it for free. If it is beyond warranty, you may find it comes out more expensive to fix, than just buying a new laptop.

Good Luck

How to open case for an mx6453 gateway laptop


Detailed post with photos. Same problem, different model; but it looks the same and other users said it worked for them. Read all the user comments first to see where other people had problems and maybe messed their computer up worse.

Gateway mx6453 won't start up


I would say that the problem is with the video card, and yes, you may need to replace entire mainboard. Check your warranty period, if it is still valid, just go to service center to get it fix, no need to ask around.
When replacing mainboard, your files, softwares and settings is still in place. Unless you also replace the hard drive, you will have the computer back as is used to.
