Dell 9400 wont show AC power icon

\015 I just bought a dell 9400 on eBay. the seller stated It would need a newbattery as the change battery light is on (yellow battery light). I bought a new battery and installed and yellow light went off but..I only use wall power (AC) yet the icon that shows using battery power is allways on .Now Im getting the same battery warning I got when the old battery was in the laptop.It looks like it uses battery power even when the AC adapter is plugged in.How can I make this laptop see that it is using wall power. How can I get my AC icon replace the battery icon?\015

Answers :

If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the about10.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Solid green: The battery is charging.

  • \015\012
  • Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.

If the computer is running on a battery, the about41.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).

  • \015\012
  • Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.

  • \015\012
  • Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.
Looks like the AC adaptor is faulty.
