Having problems with your Gateway MT6707 Notebook PC ?

Is the battery dead?

\015 A few days ago, my laptop turned itself on while I was awaiting a new power cord. It died, and now the thing won't respond to the presence of the new power cord at all. Also, after and since it died, the battery light has been blinking red.\015

Answers :

Have you tried taking the battery out and running strictly on the AC cord? If so, and it still has a problem, then it's not just the battery.

When I push the on button on my Gateway M-6843 laptop, all that happens is the battery LED on the front flashes 4 times an stops. The power LED does not go on. I purchased a new AC power cord adapter but no difference. The same thing happens with both the power cord plugged in an the battery in place or with the battery only in place. The jack seems fine. Is the battery dead or is this a motherboard problem? I don't want to purchase a new battery and find out that it's a motherboard problem.
