I have a Samsung Chronos Series 7 laptop. The past month or so I have noticed an odd behavior. I will be looking at the battery icon on the system tray and it will go from being on battery only, to being plugged in. The charge light on the laptop also goes off. It will go back and forth like this and eventually stop. Sometimes I need to shutdown to get it to stop. This happens in the BIOS setup as well so I know it is not windows/driver related. I am leaning more towards it being the laptop charger so I have a replacement unit on order. Laptop seems to stay charged tho and it is always around 97 or more percent charged. Also, when the laptop goes from acting like it is unplugged to plugged, the fans spin up for a second or two and then die down.
Hoping it is the charger and the new one should be here by the weekend. Thought I would toss the problem out and see if anyone else had any more ideas. I still have a warranty on the system so that is a plus. Just dont really have a backup ATM and would be without a system for a while if I need to send for repair.
Also, anyone know of a program that will monitor the battery and let me know when it goes off charging to charging? Kinda of curious how often this is happening since I am not always around my system.
