Hi there. I just recently got a laptop (just yesterday actually) and I'm a bit worried that the status light indicator for the battery isn't working. The reason why I'm saying this is that I've been charging the laptop now for 5 hours (dell recommend at least a 12 hour charge for initial charge so I'll leave it for another 7 hours) but the battery status indicator isn't showing any activity, from behind the screen or the control strip so now I'm a little worried that there is something wrong with it. Also, the battery status indicator in Win7 is showing fully charged. I read in the dell manual that this is normal and should only last for a few hours before it shows the true battery indication but its been 5 hours now and it hasn't changed at all. Its definitely plugged in because I can see a power cord symbol beside the battery symbol so is this all normal and I'm just being paranoid or is there something wrong? Thanks.
