My laptop is plugged in and the Windows power display (in the taskbar) shows "95% available (plugged in, not charging)". However, the battery indicator on the front of the laptop is blinking orange, which, according to the manual, means the laptop is running on battery and is below 10%.

Is this a software or hardware bug? I'll try removing / putting back the battery to see if it fixes it.

The laptop is G750JW-DB71.

This got fixed by replacing the battery.

It's somewhat unsettling that the battery lost ~10% of its charge while the laptop was turned off (not sleeping) and it was unplugged. No other device was connected to it either. I'll see if this repeats.

could you try battery full charge to 100%, what is light? when 100% then unplug ac adapter, do the discharge for a while then plug again, what is light change?

Blinking battery indicator.

I got the same problem. The battery indicator is blinking and battery status shows 100% even after I used it for a while. After I plug and put the battery, the problem solved

same here.
but i was testing OS X and fired up one time without proper power management and the laptop got hot. fans were noisy.
thats when the orange light started flashing. after shutdown and removing and puting the battery back in all was well.

IDK if this will help you, but it will help the 0% reading indicators - it fixed mine :)

Go into the Device Manger, and right click on the battery (not the AC) and uninstall, then rescan for new devices and let the driver get reinstalled.
