Default Battery says charging, but not charging. - 08-08-2013, 04:47 AM

I put my Dell mini on charge, but it wont charge the battery for some reason. It just stays at 8% forever. It says charging, but it isn't. If I unplug the AC adapter it just turns off the laptop. I am running windows 7/ Ubuntu 13.04 on my mini. Do I need a new battery? My BIOS firmware is A05.

Yes it is time to replace the battery. You might try removing the battery & reinstalling it a couple of times while the Mini is on & plugged in. I was able to get about 60 more days on my battery before it finally failed. Mine was at 67% charge but wouldn't power my Mini 9 at all.

I am using mine without a battery for the foreseeable future.
