Gateway mx6446 laptop red flashing light

\015 My gateway mx6446 laptop has a red flashing power light. I bought a new battery it worked for 5 - 10 minutes and said it was low on power, I had it plugged in but it was not charging. I bought a new charger / power cord and still it will not boot up. Is there something on the mother board that is bad or is there something else I can do to check what is wrong. I don't understand what the problem could be. Thank you.\015\012\015

Answers :

The problem is with the main board in the power supply section.
\015\012This is because the powersupply must have been short and the battery is not getting charged because the power supply isnt charging the battery.

\015\012Kindly contact the manufacturer for a main board related issue and there is no way we can lay our hands on the main board the best thing would be to go for a replacement.
