I'm problems charging my battery and I'm not sure whether I have a faulty battery, charger or laptop in general.
Here's the scenario:
My laptop (1.5 yrs old) only charges when I hold the charger cord at certain angles. This leads me to believe that my charger is faulty. However, I think this may also be a caused by a defect in the port where I plug the charger into the laptop (I'm at a lose for what this is called...)
The battery life icon has been showing a constant 6% for the past week, but I have been using it all week with the charger plugged in. Sometimes (not always) when I turn off the computer, the battery life icon shows 100&, but if I remove the charger, it immediately drops back down to 6%.
Also, my PC health monitor has been indicating that my battery quality is "poor," but I'm not sure if this is actually true or if the 6% battery life icon (caused by a faulty charger) makes the PC health monitor falsely assume the battery is faulty.
Any advice or thoughts?
Thanks in advance.
