That is dependent on how many programs you got running in your status bar. By default the computer is set to hide inactive icons from the status bar or replace them by newer active programs.

You can follow these step to troubleshoot;

  1. Right click on your status bar, choose properties
  2. Click on notification area
  3. Click Customize
  4. you'll be able to see which program does what, and you can make your power animation always active.
trust this solve your problem.

If the battery is fully charged, it won't animate. but there will be a little electrical plug over the battery symbol. as long as the plug is there, your good.

Dell n5010 not chargering


Hi Anonymous,

Request you to try following the below steps which might help:
    (1)Check if the AC Adaptor gets detected in BIOS (F2 at startup).
    (2)Check on the status bar for any messages like "Plugged in charging", "Not connected", etc.
    (3)Try using a known good AC Adaptor and check if that helps.

    Thanks and Regards.
    Kiran Kumar.

Sounds a lot like you just have a broken battery. You can get a new one on ebay or laptop battery store. If you've replaced the battery, tried the bios update and it still won't charge i would assume there is an issue with your logic board. If you're out of warranty, somebody has to openthe Laptop and replace the part. The part is available on ebay. Here's a guide on how to disassemble a Laptop. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to pay to have somebody do it for you there are third party Laptop Repair Services.

I just bought a new laptop yesterday and when i plug in the chager it dont chager it said plugged in not charging so idk what to do thankxs


On the front of the laptop or near the screen you should see a light that shows one color for when it is running on battery and another when it is charged. Usually yellow when charging and green when charged.

As well when you boot into windows near the clock you will see either a battery when using the battery, a plug with a lightening bolt when charging and just the plug when you are 100% charged.

In your user manual you should find a few picture that show and explain where and what all the light or indicator mean. If you go under control panel ot right click the icon near the clock then you get into the power panel.

If you are new to laptops it is a good idea to have the manual open and go over everything to familiarize yourself with what and where. Then you will avoid what I did when I first bought a laptop and couldn't get the wireless to work. If only someone had read manual and saw where the switch was ;-] Enjoy your laptop once you get used to things they are hard to be without.

Dell latitude D600 battery charge light flashing


Go to support.dell.com and download the latest bios firmware to update it. If it still does not work then most likely it is already a hardware issue so you need to contact dell support for the hardware issue.

DELL XPS 1210 i purchased a replacement battery not recognised


If the battery is not detected in the BIOS (F2 at boot) and doesn't show as charging, then return the battery and get a replacement.

If neither the original battery or the new replacement battery are not detected in the bios a problem with the motherboard may exist. If still under warranty, contact Dell Support for a repair, if not, then you may be investing in a new motherboard

Battery charging status remains constant (not increasing)


I've have seen a number of different batteries do this, and I recommend what is called 're-conditioning the batteries. Do this by running the battery completely down to 0%. Then do a complete re-charge of the battery to 100% (if possible). If it charges to 100%, run it completely to 0% again and then recharge it. If it does not charge to 100%, then you may have a faulty or old battery which will need to be replaced. The AC adaptor and battery have circuitry in them and might be retaining incorrect info in them. They can be reset by unplugging them for a few minutes and then plugging them back in. There might be a specific sequence of what to unplug and when, in order to reset this circuitry. Try a couple of them. (ie. Battery, AC adaptor in to battery, AC adaptor into the wall, etc.)

Let me know what happens. Binary Bob

Battary indicator blinking


Those LED's indicate a battery failure. If the battery is less than 14 months old, contact Dell for a replacement, if it is older, then you can find a new battery on Google for about half the price Dell charges.
