    I have a Gateway MX6030 laptop that drains its battery, even when AC is plugged in. Sitting in Windows I watch the battery go from 100, down to 99, down to 98, etc. Even when off, the battery will not charge anymore. Also, I am unable to power on the PC without a battery installed, even with the AC cord plugged in. Right now I am charging the battery via another Gateway laptop of a similar model.

    I have purchased another AC cord and battery with no luck. Does anyone have any insight as to what could be happening here?

    I have read a few places that the DC outlet on the motherboard could be loose/detached... But if that were the case, why would Windows reconize that it's plugged in?

    Still researching.. Need advice =).
