Revised question: What is the meaning of each of the six lights on the front left of my Toshiba Satellite Lap Top. The unit is older - about 8-9 years old. We just replaced the interior battery. Four of the six lights are on now. The first on the left is red and the other three are green and on. The fifth is struggling to stay on green and the sixth is off. Can you advise? It would help to know what each of the lights means. Can you advise? Agnes

Hi Agnes! The configuration of these status lights vary from model to model; to help me help you, might you be able to tell me the model # of your Toshiba laptop? This should be printed on a sticker located on the underside of the device (where you’ll also find the serial #, etc.)I look forward to hearing from you and assisting you further!

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
