Questioner General

As of today, the power cord light is always orange, and the battery is always at 99% charged. The cord has been plugged in all day, as it always is. The light was always green before today, and the battery was almost always 100% charged. What does it indicate and how can I fix it? Thanks.

That battery could be getting a little old. You may want to check its condition, as it could be nearing the end of its life.
