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?

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

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.
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.
