Re: My battery light is blinking.

I have the same issue with my Dell Inspiron 9300, the battery is very old and it needs to be replaced. Battery can only be recharged so many times before it basiclly dies... :smileysad:

Re: My battery light is blinking.

My battery is only 3 years old...though most of the time I just leave it plugged in. I know that is horrible for the battery but I do it anyway. Do you think I need a new battery or is it a problem with the connection?

3 yrs is pretty old for a laptop battery.

Re: My battery light is blinking.

Well i needed a new lap top battery when it was only a year old and it's 2 years old now I haven't had the chance to buy a new battery. I always kept it plugged in though. But the battery light never blinked. Maybe soon it will. As for it not charging. It's done that to me a few times but I unplugged it and plugged it in again and it started to charge. I don't know what that may be.

Re: My battery light is blinking.

I have an HP Pavilion HDX 9200 Entertainment Series.  My first battery lasted 3 or so years, in the end it was dead before the machine booted on the battery.  My battery now is 1 month old and the battery light started blinking constantly yet the battery is at 100%, go figure. . .
