Answers :

There is a smart circuit in the battery. Is sounds liek your smart circuit has failed. This will not affect the function of hte battery at first, but you need to get it replaced. This is how windows tracks the battery life, condition, and keeps the battery at peak condition. There might be a "reinitialization" application that might have come with your battery as well (some high level batteries have this) and it will recondition the battery and reset the logic circuit on the battery. I would highly suggest replacing the battery though if you do not remember having this software package. The logic circuit can not be replaced, and is generally there to keep you from installing generic batteries into the dell battery box. I hope that helps you in understanding what those lights are..

I have the same problem with mine! I talked to Gateway and they have told me to recalibrate the battery. So I did what they said and it tells me my battery is over on it's voltage. I have had them send me a new battery, but now my 2nd battery is taking a **** not even 2 months after I got it.

CPU overheating I was wondering if anyone knew about any cpu overheating problems with the gateway MT3422. I have read several articles on this issue, and wonder if this may be my problem.

Power? i own a gateway mx6450, the laptop fails to power up, and battery is damaged, i took it to a local repair shop, and was told it could be mother board issues. i refuse to believe it is main board as they could not get it to power up as well. i have also been made aware that the laptop will not power up without either a good battery in place, or one plugged into the laptop. is there a way to bypass battery, and just have the 6450 run solely off the charger for diagnostic purpose?? items t

I've had my Gateway M-6843 Notebook for about 18 months. Since the day I bought it from Best Buy, the AC adapter port has been finicky. I'll be using the laptop with the adapter plugged in and the battery charging. Then, if I make the slightest movement, or the adapter cable shifts even a bit, the external power source will disconnect, and the notebook will start running off of battery power only. Until now, the problem could usually be resolved by fiddling with the adapter in the port, unti
