WHAT DOSE IT MEAN WHEN THE LIGHT ON THE POWER ADAPTER TURNS BRIGHT GREEN RIGHT AFTER BEING PLUGGED IN THEN TURNS TO A LIGHT GREEN BUT THE SECOND ITS PLUGGED INTO THE LAPTOP IT SHUTS OFF
Bright green means there's power to the power adapter, light green means it's charging, and when the light goes off it's charged. It usually means your laptop is fully charged when you plug it in, and it goes off. And the laptop doesn't power the battery, the battery powers the laptop. Does the laptop come on when plugged to a electrical source, you should be able to plug it in and use it while its directly plugged to the wall via the adapter. Make sure your using the correct voltage and amps in order to charge the battery, And when your charging the voltage going in is about 19+ volts but the battery only put out 11 or 12 volts to the laptop.
So do a check list so you know what you did, and write it down. I would check the adapter with a volt meter first see how much its putting out. If it's not putting out enough. If so you found your problem. If not move onto the battery, and check it with the meter to see how much its charged. Batteries go bad and have to be replaced once in a while. Iv'e bought 2 off ebay myself, and there not to expensive. Let us know how it goes, or call up and talk to an expert, it will save you alot of time. Hope i helped a little.
