 I have two IBM thinkpads that are showing the same symptom flashing 
orange charging light.
I have swapped batteries with the same indication on both laptops.  I 
have let them charged for four hours plus with no success. I am able to 
run the laptop from the batteries for couple of hours, I do a normal 
 Does anyone know on how to stop the flashing light and getting a status 
on how much percentage of power? What maybe causing this? I have checked 
the Internet and most of the hits I had seen were to sell me a battery.

Thank you,
