plugged in, not charging

Gateway ML 6720, already tried deleting ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery and reinstalling, still no luck. When I unplug charger and plug back in it works for 2 mins the most and then back to "plugged in, not charging". Any ideas?

Have you checked

Have you checked to see if the battery is actually charging and you're getting a false report?

plugged in, not charging problem solved

We had the same problem with Toshiba Windows Vista. We tried alot of solutions from taking out the battery to unplugging the adaptor. Today we went to Radio Shack and bought an enercell universal ac power supply for laptops. It comes with 10 different tips to use on several different types of laptops. It has now fully charged and staying that way. The cashier told us that our adaptor was loose where it was attached to the power block. So far problem solved. Hope this helps. Also, as I understand it, you have to be very gentle with these power adaptors. We were told not to wind it up but instead just loosely put it away.
