  1. I have a gateway solo 1450 laptop and every time i plug it in to charge it never does. like the light turns orange but then later when I unplug it it doesnt turn on and it only works if plugged in charging. Also if you touch the wirer it turns of,

    Can someone please help? Is the battery dead? AC power cord dead? Simple problem to fix?

    Take a close look to the DC Power Jack and make sure is not broken.
    the other thing may be a bad battery and thats why it doesn't charge at all.
