Having problems with your Gateway PC Laptops ?

Hi I have a gateway laptop and I have a brand new charger for it as well, but the computer keeps flickering as if the charger is not in. When the computer is off the battery charges normally, but when it is on it flickers on and off. I hope that i am explaining it right. Please Help Me
