Alienware m11x R2 battery not charging while plugged in after sys. recovery. Help!
Due to a virus on my m11x R2, I had to do a complete system recovery. Upon rebooting the m11x R2, I now have the dreaded "battery not charging" problem in which some people have spoke about. I have tried this fix already:
1. unplug laptop
2. remove case + battery
3. hold power button for 30+ sec.
4. reinstall battery + plug in laptop
Unfortunately, I still get the battery not charging problem. I checked my BIOS settings and they are correct. The right choices are enabled, therefore I am stuck as to what the problem is. While plugged in, it the power button looks as if it is charging w/different colors flashing. When booting, the colors also flash for only 5 sec. and then runs on the battery. I have barely any charge left for experimenting so I would greatly appreciate it if someone has a solution besides what I already tried. I would be very grateful if someone can solve this for me because school is rapidly approaching and I will need a laptop.
