Battery is not showing charging on my Wallstreet G3. The task bar at bottom is grayed out half and half. Battery on top menu shows red.

My battery should be good. Lights do not show on battery however.

have you tried running Battery Reset 2.0? if not, try it. It is supposed to work with the wallstreets. If it does not work, then something might be wrong with the charging board, which sits under the trackpad. I know that's what is wrong with mine, as I have 3 batteries, and none hold a charge, so I think it's more than a mere coincidence.

Of course, they COULD be dead, but I doubt it.
