Having problems with your Gateway MX6030 Notebook ?

I'm having a power issue with my Gateway Laptop, model number MX6030. Since I've been having issues I have purchased a backup battery, a replacement AC adapter, and had the contact prong to the motherboard fixed as well. Nevertheless, my computer continues to drain power from the battery when plugged into an outlet and the computer is on and when I leave the computer off and let it charge it takes two days to fully charge just one 2 hour battery. I need to know what my options are or what might


Answers :

You have done all you can with what can be accomplished at a local level in fixing the power issues, but obviously it goes beyond the power jack and charger. This may very well involve the power circuitry on the motherboard itself and how the system uses the power from the charger. If you want to look at it from a dollars stand point, it would be cheaper to change out the motherboard than to try and hunt down this problem that may only be able to be fixed by specialized equipment that can de-solder and solder the miniscule pins of the motherboard circuitry. Just to be sure, have someone measure the voltage output of the charger at the tip and make sure it is within the specs of that laptop. Match the output voltage marked on the back of the charger with what you get on a DC voltage meter.
