Red battery lights blinks constantly

I may be wrong and I hope I am wrong here, my laptop power lights is always showing red as tough the bettery is depleting but windows task bar indicates its 100%. Does this mean my bettery is gone past its shelf life? Or do I need to adjust any configuration.

If you leave it on charge for a day and then disconnect the mains lead, use it and see how long it lasts before the battery fails; it may be just an indication problem.

1. Turn off the computer,
2. Take the battery out
3. Take out the power supply
4. Push the power button down for 30 seconds.
5. Reconnect power supply
6. Then the battery.
Should now show 100% charged. This is because sometimes the mother board gets static and this clears it
