Gateway M360 battery
\015 My laptop battery light is showing red and shows 0% battery life when it actually still has life left should be showing green and telling me how much battery life is left. It is charging battery but not reading or recognizing it. I also bought a new OEM battery and it still is showing a red critical light when according to the battery itself it is 75 % full. Any Ideas?\015
