    It says "Processor" - Set it to 80% for battery.

    Are you using the power adapter/cord that came with the laptop? Perhaps something has gone wrong with it so it has enough power to run the computer or charge the battery, but not both at the same time.

    I am using the same adapter that comes with laptop. The problem has raised from last 10 days. Before that, everything was fine.

    You know, maybe the power adapter is going bad. How old is this system? You can find a replacement on Amazon or eBay, sometimes the exact model, for cheap.

    Then the adapter may be going bad. If there is a Laptop Store anywhere near you- A shop which sells only laptops, you can bring it there and they may let you test a new adapter. I use a place called "Laptops Plus" - They are national, so there may be one hear you. There is another one called "Laptops USA" also national.

    Setting your Processor Power to 80% while running on Battery, this is not a solution but it is a way to make your battery last longer.

    Thanks to all my dear friends for their suggestions. Now, suddenly my laptop started working fine. Charger is now working perfectly.

    Thanks once again.

    OK! I hope it stays working! Maybe a combination of the things... But I think it may have been recharging all along. My Gateway laptop before it broke, would be connected to WiFi but the tray icon showed not connected, even though it was.

    Sometimes windows just goes goofy. OK GreaT! Mark this as solved if you havent already, if it comes back we can try more things.
