Having problems with your Gateway MD2614u Notebook ?

My battery charges but when i let it charge for a whie it says battery 0%. and a red light on left hand corner turns on

Answers :

THe battery had probably been use to it's limit. With laptop batteries they only have a limited life span. A certain numbe rof charges. The best thing to do is when you have the laptop plugged into the wall power source, remove the battery. As with all rechargable batteries, it is not recommended to recharge them when they are half drained. Recharging them all the time kills the lifespan. Go on ebay and purchase another battrery. You can find one for under $30.

When I plugged in the adapter to charge the battery, it said "Plugged in, but not charging." What should I do to get it to charge?
