I recently purchased a new laptop for college from best buy, while I typically wouldnt buy from them they had a $450 marked down to $350 because of a missing battery. I figured I could find a battery for less than $100 easily which I still feel I can but I cant even find which battery I need in the first place. The computer is a Gateway NV5332u, From what I can tell the battery is an Acer battery. I ordered one that looked identical but it is so slightly off it just doesnt work plus it the laptop beeped and said it was the wrong to battery. I have literally searched for days and cant find anything, please help.

I'm not having much luck either with the information you provided. :thumbsup: Have you tried contacting Gateway?

acer and gateway are not related and their batteries are NOT related. I did a product search and am unable to find a battery to match, you will have to contact gateway. will the laptop function off just the cord? otherwise, gateways your only option

I also did a search yesterday and came up with nothing.

My guess would be that since it's a relatively new system, replacement parts are not yet a consideration for vendors...just a guess.
