Gateway M360 battery

My laptop battery light is showing red and shows 0% battery life when it actually still has life left should be showing green and telling me how much battery life is left. It is charging battery but not reading or recognizing it. I also bought a new OEM battery and it still is showing a red critical light when according to the battery itself it is 75 % full. Any Ideas?

Charging Conventions

  • 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.

My battery charges but when i let it charge for a whie it says battery 0%. and a red light on left hand corner turns on


THe battery had probably been use to it's limit. With laptop batteries they only have a limited life span. A certain numbe rof charges. The best thing to do is when you have the laptop plugged into the wall power source, remove the battery. As with all rechargable batteries, it is not recommended to recharge them when they are half drained. Recharging them all the time kills the lifespan. Go on ebay and purchase another battrery. You can find one for under $30.

Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty. If not,
Try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty. If not,
Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.
Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

That usually indicates battery is beginning to go bad. Eventually it will not hold a charge and will need to be replaced.

Gateway MX8711 Battery Won't Charge


As long as the laptop still works on AC then your battery is probably dead. It is a few years old already so it probably wasnt far from the end of its useful life anyway.

Try not to drain laptop batteries down all the way to zero - Its best to always have some charge in them to extend the life.
