I have a Gateway Tablet CX2618. A few weeks ago I noticed my adapter cord had gotten frayed. I went to WorstBuy and reported it under the warranty. They sent me a new, but different adapter. I didnt like it from the beginning, because sometimes I had to wiggle the cord to get a charge. It has a plug on the tip. I guess its a universal adapter and they just add whichever tip you need. I was always pushing the plug all the way in, or wiggling the cord. A few times the laptop screen would lightened (darken) considerably, then brighten back to normal.
Last night I shut it down and unplugged it. I plugged it in this morning and turned it on. I did some work, shut it down and unplugged it. When I went to turn it on 30 minutes later, it wouldnt power up. I thought it was odd, because it should have been fully charged. Later I plugged the adapter in and it still wouldnt come on. The light on the adapter is on, so I know it is getting power.
I took the battery off the computer and let it sit. After about the 5th time, and and few hours of doing that, I got a blue light on the computer. `The charging light is usually purple. This is bright blue. Doesnt really matter, cause the computer still wont power up. I've only had this adapter for a few days; I think it did something to my computer. . .
Is all my info gone??? What's going on.
