Gateway laptop AC adapter not working

\015 The past few days, if I fiddled with the power cord, it would charge battery and/or work on AC. Today, it is not accepting AC adapter at all.\015\012\015\012Previous posts seem to indicate it isn't necessarily a problem with the adapter, but instead the laptop hardware.\015\012\015\012Is this fixable or not?\015

Answers :

\015\012You might try another adapter to be sure but if it is a motherboard problem the best solution is probably to junk it and buy a new laptop.
