Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

On my Fujitsu Siemens laptop the battery symbol is flashing orange, does anyone know what this means?

Answers :

It's an indicator that your battery is dying, or going out of power.

Try this:

I found a rectangular piece of piece of clear plastic clinging to\015\012the back of the laptop above the contacts. The contacts are mounted in\015\012a dark plastiic plug.The clear plastic piece is about a half-inch long,\015\0121/4 inches wide and less than an eighth of an inch thick.

I\015\012pried down the plastic plug so there was a gap above it and wedged in\015\012the clear plastic, lowering the contacts a few millimeters.

When I plugged my battery in, the light immediately went to green.

I\015\012prefer neater repairs than is. But what the heck was that clear plastic\015\012doing there in the first place. Did the manufacturer discover a\015\012misalignment with the battery contacts and stick on the clear plastic\015\012to fix the problem? Was the clear plastic wedged in originally as I\015\012have done, or simply placed above the contacts, as I found it? Was the\015\012plastic wedged in originally, knowing that this was a fix that was\015\012bound to fail?

I'm not particularly proud of the repair I made, but at least I've got a laptop with a rechargeable battery.
This means you're running out of battery. So you need to switch on to its adapter and plug it to the power source to let it charge.
