How do I know if my kindle fire is charging when I plug it in. There is no light indication that tell me if it is. Even tho it has been plugged in I have less than 5% charge and it shuts off.


There should be a charge indicator at the bottom (yellow?). Shows green when charged. From your description, it sounds as though the battery is shot.

Not working


It sounds as though your battery is dead. If you place it on charge, does it start then? If so, charge overnight and try with the charger unplugged. If it does not start, I think you have a bad battery. The yellow light indicates it is charging, but some notebooks do not start if the battery is bad, even if plugged in. You might try taking the battery out, and see if it works when plugged in. I hope this helps you find your problem.

My Pavilion g6-1b79dx notebook will not charge even with a new battery and charger. The light indicating the charger is plugged in is blinking white


When you say it won't charge, does it charge at all?

1. It indicates that it is charging, but as soon as you unplug the charger the battery quickly or immediately indicates it is dead. If the laptop is off, the LED on the laptop shows it is charging but the battery is always dead,

2. It is as if you didn't have the charger plugged in. No light on the laptop at all when the charger is plugged in.

Possible solutions:

1. The battery has died and is no longer capable of taking a charge. An alternate explanation if you can't even get the laptop to turn on even though the laptop charge LED is on, is that the internal power supply that converts the incoming and battery voltage to all the voltages required has died.

2. The power connector inside the laptop is a common failure point. The solder joints break from various minor shocks over time. This is going to become more common with lead-free solder as it is more brittle. Less likely is that the charging circuit inside the laptop has failed.

My battery light flashes red then green then red and so on even though its plugged in. The power indicator says I'm fully charged. What doed the flashing red and geen mean?


Try removing the battery and just use the AC adapter. If the laptop functions normally then you have a problem with the battery charging circuit . Either your battery is defective or the circuit that charges it is defective ( meaning the system board).

TOSHIBA U400 running VISTA; When I am on battery and get low i plug in so i can continue working but even though the lighted icons on the laptop show it is plugged in and charging and the toolbar icons...


Yes it is, seems there is some problem with the power state detection and changing of the load mode. Might by a physical problem, so I am not sure you can fix it.
At least check your power plan details and see if there is any error with the ACPI devices in the device manager.
In general, if you use the laptop when plugged, you should take out the battery to maximize the battery life (prevents useless load cycles).
Also configure Windows to optimize battery usage.

Laptop won't power on


A few things to try:
First remove the battery from the laptop plug in the power adapter and see if it powers up without the battery in. If this works there is a problem with the battery or the battery driver. If it works login go to device manager and disable the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery. If battery works then it was the driver if still fails its a dead battery.
Try with just the battery it is probably dead though as its had no power to charge it.
Check if the power adapter has a light on it some have lights that indicate its receiving power. Also check if the lights on the laptop to say the battery is charging even though you indicated it isnt.
Let me know how you go or if you need further help.

I have a toshiba laptop, and in the last few weeks something weird started happening. When the laptop is plugged into the AC, the power meter in windows tells me that the power source is still batteries,...


Change your AC charger.
It's NOT charging "When the laptop is plugged into the AC, the power meter in windows tells me that the power source is still batteries, and the battery level drops by about 1% every few hours"
That's the reason why: "battery has completely died"
If you do not change it you'll continue to "still it gives me the same low battery indication and will not turn on. "
