    I have a brand new laptop, well pretty new (6 months) It's still under warranty but i would rather try to fix it myself if i can as sending my laptop away would be very hard during the last few weeks of school. My question is i have a gateway mt6451 laptop with vista. It appears to charge at my friends house altho i do use a 3 prong plug to change it back to a 2 prong plug because she does not have the proper outlet for my computer anywhere in her house. Well i just get home today and plug my laptop in the wall at my house and it wont charge, it blinks on and off then off completely after a while. I brought the laptop upstairs and it charged in the upstairrs bedroom, could it be the outlet? BTW the outlet does work to charge my cell phone, alram, etc... and it used to work b4 to charge my laptop....any suggestions would be great.
