Battery Not Charging and Computer Won't Run on AC Power
just bought a refurbished Panasonic Toughbook CF-53 a while ago, and while it's working well enough so far, as a couple hours ago the battery has mysteriously stopped charging.
When I plug the adapter in, the battery light turns yellow, then starts flashing red about thirty seconds later. I have no clue why it does this, the most intuitive answer I can think of is that the battery died, but I have no idea why it would die so suddenly.
It was on something like 14% charge and charging while plugged in last I checked, but now ot just won't work, and since the computer can't seem to run on AC power alone that means it's bricked until I can figure out how to fix it.
The only thing of note that I can think of that happened before the battery failed is that I was playing AdventureQuest that seemed to cause the computer's fan to start running really hard. The game isn't particularly graphically intensive though so I can't see why that would do this to the battery
