Having problems with your Gateway PC Desktops ?

My laptop is not being charged or getting any connection from the AC adapter. I purchased a Universal adapter, but my model LM6232 is not compatiable with the Universal. So, I purchased an AC adapter specifically for this model, yet upon recieving it today, my computer is not recieving a charge.
