So here I am now and my laptop batter is at 0% and the the icon says the charger is not charging...Obviously the laptop charger HAS to be working seeing how my laptop is on but the battery is just not being charged. I have three lights on the front of my laptop for the power/charger/hd and the power light and hd light work as they should with blinking randomly but the charger light blinks on, off, on, off, on, off...I thought maybe if I shut the laptop off and let it charge that way maybe it would work but when I do that then all three of the lights blink on, off, on, off, on off..I also took the battery out and put it back in thinking that would work but nope.
So my question is, is it possible for the laptop charger to work but not charge the battery? Is it also possible for the battery to randomly die and not hold a charge? The area the laptop was on the rug did not have any water in the rug...Any suggestions I could try to get this to charge?
THanks in advance guys.
UPDATE : I took the battery out while the laptop was on and the notification worked correctly and told me no battery was detected. I put the battery back in and the icon did two and half full "battery charging" animations before it stopped and went back to "not charging".
