hi, i have a laptop. The led green light has always been on when it is plugged in and even when it is shut down and plugged in. I heard a noise in the fan like a bug zapper noise. Then my light went out. It has not come back on. I need to see this light; it tells me I have power going into my laptop. It is charged 100%. The other lights are working. When I am working in my computer the green light is on. It goes out when I close the lid; or shut it down. My Charging Adapter Light is on and there is no problem. I just want to see my green light on my laptop. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

LEDs do occasionally fail.  I'd say this is connected to the noise you heard but the fact that your PC is functioning fine makes me think that's unlikely.


If you disconnect the power supply, let the battery run down some, and reconnect the power supply does the icon in the system tray show charging?  Does the battery actually charge up to 100%?


If the answer to both of those questions is, "Yes," then this is nothing worth worrying about.
