I have a toshiba satellite L750 laptop. Recently the battery light is flashing red when the laptop is shutdown. Doe it sound like perhaps i need a new battery? :(

Many thanks

unplug from mains

remove the battery

then press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds to drain all the current from the laptop

then reconnect battery and plug in adaptor.

see what happens then it should charge OK.
