Hi spanky11,

Amber - usually means it's charging. Then, it turns green when it is fully charged.

Hope this helps and good luck.

Im getting a solid amber light on my dell studio 540


This usually means that the power cord is plugged in but the battery is not charging. You need a new battery, more than likely.

My Logitech Dinovo Edge is not recharging. When I put it in the charger the battery charging indicator light flashes red instead of green.


Were you having problems with short battery life before this happened? Most of the time if the battery is not recharging it needs to be replaced. Have never seen the red flashing light before though. It may mean that the battery has shorted out.

Doesn't turn on unless plugged into ac adaptor


You may have to replace the battery or it's possible there's a short circuit on the battery line that's why it's not charging.

My computer would not take a charge, so I bought a new battery, but it still want charge. What else could be the problem.


I'm confused.. you post this question on the pc desktop session... desktops do not have a battery... did you mean the power supply maybe??
if you actually have a laptop and you purchase a new battery please provide details on the lights that appear on the front of the computer when the computer is connected., there's a power light when the computer is plugged and a battery light that when charging is yellow/amber and when fully charged is green or blue.
if you in fact have a laptop and just replaced the battery depending on the lights you see in front it could be the connection on your computer attached to the motherboard right where you plugged your power cord, it's a fairly common problem that that little piece eventually starts crapping out on you. you need to get a replacement (ebay) and have it soldered onto the motherboard.. pay for it if you don't know how to do it.. it's a fairly delicate procedure.
again, depending on the lights you see, the othe problem could be your motherboard and your bios, flashing the bios may be something you may want to try.

post more details to see if there's something else that we may suggest.
