I own a gateway laptop M-2414u
I was using it a while back and it turned off i thought it just died so i left it alone( it was late so i did not have a problem just leaving it like that at the time)
I stopped using it for a few days, but when i went back to turn it on nothing happened. I took out the battery and left the computer for a few minutes, when i put the battery back in and tried to charge it , the light of the cumputer that says to charge it only came on(red light).
The light to my charger turns on green but the computer does nothing, the red light is the only thing that it does, turn on.
What happened what can i do??

I live in arizona
Is there any great shop i can take it to, so they can check it or something.
Well besides best buy because i was just told to go there but it will be very expensive

Take the battery out and leave the power supply in. Start the computer. Your computer may not boot If you have a bad battery, If that fails, check the power input on the laptop, is it loose? If so, it may need to be re-soldered. Or you may have a bad power supply.
