    I have a Gateway MX-6431 laptop. I currently charge my battery by removing it from the laptop and connecting it to a special charger with the battery adapter, a seven pin rectangular connector. I received the computer this way, so I don't know anything else about it. I later found the AC charger that came with the laptop and plugged it in. It did nothing. I checked the voltage at the pin connector at the end of the charger and it was fine and the correct polarity. Any ideas at all?

    Thank You For Your Time,
    Charlie

    When you say, "I received it that way", did you receive it that way from a shop, eBay, or as second-hand? So, is the laptop brand new?
