Problem is that when I turn it on while plugged into AC with a battery properly mounted, it RUNS fine, but will not charge the battery. Users manual says AC power light should glow green and battery light should glow amber while the battery is charging (or green if it is fully charged) when the PC is plugged into the wall. With the computer on and working, my AC power light glows AMBER, no mention of that at all in the manual, and my battery light is not glowing at all. ?! What gives?
My battery is at 3% and is not being used by the PC for power. I do still get the "Low battery, save your work or switch to AC power" message, even though I'm already on AC power. SO something "sees" the battery, but it won't charge it. AC adapter is also acting weird, might have a break in the wires, if I wiggle the cord just right I get changes in the lights on the PC, but could that be the cause of the battery not charging? Seems unlikely since it will actually run the PX. Thanks for the help.
