Question I am thinking battery. - 12-01-2011, 04:10 PM

I've noticed alot of 10v's seem to have charging issues but the little charge light also flashes red and white. When I plug mine in it just shows white and it shows the battery as charging but it always stays at 0%. I've tried cleaning contacts and still nothing.
Should I drop cash on a new battery?

1st, is your battery original?..

2nd, have you screwed around with your BIOS?

if your battery IS original then it probably needs replacing, if its that old than its probably shot, 2nd if you played around with your BIOS then you are on your own..

Battery is original, no I have not messed with bios. Also thank you sir!

When I got home from work today I found that the battery "charged" up. Only had 30 min of life though. So looks like it's time for a new battery.
