Having problems with your Gateway MX6428 Notebook ?


Answers :

Could be either so take a volt/oem meter see if your power charger is even good. If so take a good look at ur a/c connector if the the shaft pin is lose then u need to have it replaced and its not a cheap repair. Although the connector is like $3 the whole laptop has to be tore down to get to it then the old soldered off and new soldered in. Hopefully its the charger if not buy a new laptop the other repair is average $150.
