To be more specific I am running a Windows XP Pro SP2 laptop and the battery light under the LCD screen, above the keyboard, is flashing orange....which to me means a low battery charge (or maybe the battery is just bad).
When I go to Control Panel / Power Options / Click on the "Power Meter" Tab I see that battery #2 is fully charged at 100% while battery #1 is "Not Present".
It has been my experience, what experience that I have, that when a laptop has one battery, as this one does, the battery reading 100% would often be battery #1 and battery #2 would read "Not Present"
I do not know if this the reason for the flashing orange light for the aparantly fully charged battery, but I thought I would mention it since to me it was an anomaly.
I went to Control Panel / Power Options and poked around and I could not find anything other than the ability to adjust the Alarm when the battery is low.
I am beginning to suspect that the battery is going bad, just not sure why it is reading at 100% and all indications other that the aforementioned flashing light, everything seems fine.
