My GateWay labtop battery is discharging at a rate of 1-2%. How can I get the battery to fully charge?

How old is the battery? If it is an older battery, chances are that it may be on it's last leg.

Well, for one, if you are good with a multi meter you can check to see if the contacts are working and charging. Check the battery, the contacts of the unit and the contacts of the battery---make sure the pins have ample spring or resistance enough to make good contact (they get worn).

You can see if the unit runs w/out the battery just on AC.
