I have 4 laptops and from my experience, with what you are describing, yes it's time to replace the battery. They have a life of about 2 years give or take.

What does a orange power light mean


please see the commentary. God bless you

  • The majority of laptops will display a solid green, blue or purple battery light to indicate that the battery is fully charged. Most manufacturers indicate that a laptop is in the process of charging by displaying a solid or blinking green, orange, blue or purple light. If your battery indicator light is green, blue or purple, the battery is probably functional, regardless of whether the light is blinking. If the light is solid orange, the laptop is probably in the process of charging.

Battery Error Coneventions

  • Many battery manufacturers use rapidly blinking lights to indicate that a battery's charge level is low. In general, a laptop will rapidly blink orange or red when its charge drops below a certain level until the computer is plugged into a power outlet and charged. If your laptop's battery indicator continues to blink rapidly in orange or red or if it remains red even when it is plugged into the charger, it indicates a problem with your battery or the charger.

T20 wont turn on


make sure the battery is unplugged from the laptop and only hook up the ac adapter. If you can't get it to turn on then try anotherr knowng good working adapter and if it still can't turn on then the motherboard is bad and will need to be replaced.

T20 batteries wont stay charged


It might be that you are using older batteries. However, you should try dimming your backlight to the lowest possible setting and performing any other power-saving actions such as limiting the processor's power (if available on your laptop.) Hope this helps.
