I'm dealing with a battery issue that's driving me INSANE; Please Help!
After allowing several hours for a new battery to fully charge (new ac-adapter plugged in & laptop off), battery taskbar icon indicated that "no battery was detected." So I uninstalled the associated Microsoft generic driver, then rebooted.
The driver was once more in Device Mgr but this time the taskbar icon said that the "battery [was detected] but is not charging."
Laptop came pre-installed w/a power-mgmt software, P4G. When I got the above results, I uninstalled this program thinking it might be the cause, or at least not helping the matter. But I still have the problem.
Win 7 x64
P.S. I'm desperate so I'm sure this is really, really reaching, but is it possible that the lack of a cover for batt compartment might have system thinking there's nothing there since the "lock mechanism wouldn't be engaged?
Also, it's now back to "no battery detected," but the 2-color light indicator is solid orange. (green=good to go, solid orange=not charged @ 95% & on AC-power, & blinking orange=(hardware) failure, corruption, blah blah blah.)
