The first thing to do is check that the charger is putting out the correct voltage, which should be ~19 volt. Then try to start it without the battery.If your voltage is OK and the battery out makes no difference, then I would suspect that you have a motherboard problem that must be fixed. If the computer starts up if you wiggle the DC plug where it goes into the computer, then it's the DC jack that is looks and must be re-soldered.

The dead laptop charger may be another cause. Try a new and correct one:

SOURCE: Battery light blinking red even when charging

Looks like you need a new battery. Same thing happened with a DELL XPS, once the new battery was in place, all was fine.

When charging my battery it will reach 95% and the battery charging light will turn solid red and battery meter will show plugin not charging.


Likely that the battery is either not fully working due to reaching the end of its useful life, or the charging light is not accurate and you have a fully charged battery.

You can download this free software to give you a more accurate idea:

You might also like to try "educating" your battery. This is done simply by running it flat, recharging fully and running flat again, do this a few times and if the battery s good, you should get it to see 100% charge
