Having problems with your Gateway MX3563 (RBMX3563) PC Notebook ?

I have acquired a Gateway MX 3563 Laptop. It will not run off the power adaptor or charge the battery. The power adapter is new as is the battery. I am a certified Apple Technician.

Hi:
\015\012You need to do some research on power related issues with this Gateway series of laptops. I personnally have tried to work on 2 of them, and they both exhibited the same symptoms as yours.
\015\012It is more than a power jack issue, I can ensure you this. It seems there is a failure in the power/ charging circuit on the motherboard, and not easily fixed by the end user, and most likely a motherboard replacement.

Power My last adapter was touchy and my laptop would charge on and off (the screen would flicker) because the adapter was loose. My battery was completely drained down to 0% and so I bought a new adapter so I could turn my laptop back on but it won't turn on. Could my "power port" be screwed up or do I just need a new battery? The battery that came from the factory with my laptop had a life of only 2 hours at the very most so it sucked to begin with.
