    I have the 5150c (the compact version) and have had replacements from Dell of



    -motherboard

    -fan

    -RAM

    -power supply

    -hear sink



    and still the problem persists. It runs for a few minutes, sometimes a few hours, and then just goes into a blinking orange light mode all of a sudden. To turn back on, I have to unplug it from the wall.



    PS: I'm not stupid - i have standby and hibernate off.

Hey gatchaman,

Thanks for your reply!

I just repalced it - I had a brand new battery in my "battery closet" - and it still shuts down by itself, with the blinking orange light and all.

Thanks for trying :(

You need to replace the motherboard lithium battery. Looks like a watch battery.

No power only orange power light


Hi, It most likely is a faulty power supply or a motherboard issue. Remove the power cord then press and hold the power button for at least 30 seconds. Then plug it back in and hit the power button. This will release any static buildup that might be in the computer and sometimes that causes it not to boot. If nothing is happening it is more likely your power supply than the motherboard.

Power button if flashing orange and nothing else works


It's likely that your power supply has started to go out. There are several different leads with varying voltages & amps. If your computer is getting enough power to make a light flash yellow or orange then this often means that there is something wrong with one or more of the voltages from the power supply. Sometimes it means that something is wrong with your motherboard. Like: burned out capacitors, resistors, & etc.

The flashing light on the front of your laptop is a low battery warning. There probably isn't enough power in the battery to turn on the laptop. You need to plug in the ac power adaptor and let the battery charge until the battery light turns from 'orange', to 'green'.
