Hey guys,

So I have an ASUS X551ca laptop and I had a problem with the battery charging. When plugged in the charging status indicator would stay a solid orange meaning that its charging but it would never turn green meaning its fully charged. Even in Windows 10 the battery level would stay at 0% so I suspected it was the internal battery pack and replaced the said battery pack.

Now since Ive replaced the battery and plugged it in I'm going on 3 1/2 of charging without turning it on so the battery can condition itself but still im getting the same solid orange light. Is it just me thinking this is unusual or should I just be little more patient and wait a few more hours to see what happens? Going on 4 hours seems little long to me. What do you guys think?

Did you replace it with a brand new battery, or one that has been used?

 

You can check the condition of your battery using the freeware (for personal use) tool BatteryMon from Passmark.

I replaced the old battery with a new 3rd party one.
Ill definitely use that software to check the new battery when the light turns green.
