No power press power button blinking red battery light

If it is not taking a charge your power adapter is loose. To confirm this press on the cord where it plugs into your laptop and continuously press the power button if it powers up thats your problem. You may need to press the cord at various angles before you get it to power up push it in and pull to the left, then the right, up, down and so forth.
If this is your issue you can temparly fix it by using duct tape once you find the right position for the cord that will work for awhile but you will need to get it soldered eventually. If you know someone who knows how to solder ask them if they will do it for if not the repair will be approx. $100

Gateway m685 freezes after it runs for awhile, then more quickly

It is probably being caused from over heating.

Are the cooling fans running? If so, get a can of air from an electronic store, and blow the cooling system out from the exhaust in to the fan. Stop the fan from turning with a paperclip or something.
