Battery light stays on even after comp is turned off or the battery charger is unplugged
1. I try to turn on my computer after it goes into Stand By mode but it doesn't. The screen is off but there are 3 lights flashing to show its on. Its like only part of the computer is responding.
2. And then recently, I noticed that the battery light is still on when I unplug it and my computer is turned off or is in Stand By mode and the worst is the light is still on when the computer is off. Its not like its slow at responding and turns off the light later on, it stays on. I take the battery out and the computer is really hot even though its been off for an hour.
3. I've been getting a lot of those "blue screens" saying it can't reboot properly and it restarts but it doesn't progress. I just reimaged my computer and it just gave me the "blue screen" when I tried to use my computer.
Is this an internal problem? Is it because I've been using an older battery charger at times? I checked the output voltages and they are the same. The new one is just lighter and smaller...

I agree with Tom, you probably need to change the battery.
Don't forget that with modern rechargeable batteries, particularly in computers, phones and the like, it is not good to leave them plugged in to the charger all the time. This definitely reduces the life of the battery. Try a new battery, charge it up and then unplug the charger.
I know it's a bit more bother, it means having the charger ready to plug in when the battery alert light comes on, then unplugging it again when full. If you get into the habit, it is well worth it, given the price of batteries!
I've had the same problem with my RCA 10 inch tablet. I have charged it, tried the hard reset, used different chargers and even different outlets, and held the power button on for 60+ seconds with NO RESULTS! My recommendation is to contact RCA, which is what I am doing, and request an immediate replacement if yours is still under the 1 year manufacturers warranty. If you look these tablets up, you will see (as I have found) that this is apparently a common problem with the tablets. Wish I had known that prior to purchasing!
You use one of two methods Method 1 1. Install the battery in its compartment. 2. Plug the AC adapter
The battery will start charging, and the status light for the battery will appear amber. The light will remain amber as long as the battery is not fully charged. When the cahrge is completed, the light will turn green.
Of course, if your are using your computer while battery is being charged, it will take three to four times longer to complete the charge.
Toshiba sells battery chargers which you can use to charge a battery outside of the computer.
