Gateway MT3422 won't charge battery
\015 I just plugged the A/C adaptor into my Gateway notebook and the chargine light didn't illuminate, nor did the battery meter indicate the battery is charging. I tried securing the connections between the adaptor and transformer block and changing outlets, which didn't result in anything happening. What might cause this? Is it just a problem with the adaptor or is there something else causing this?\015
Shutdown the notebook - unplug the a/c adaptor - remove the battery - re-insert the battery - plug-in the a/c adaptor
it can also be a systemboard failure
