Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
My battery light is flashing orange (4 times) then green (1 time). The laptop will run on either ac or battery power. When I unplug the laptop, it says I have full power on my battery (ie 4hours) but the light won't stop flashing in this sequence.
The LED sequence indicates a failure in the battery. (Like one cell has low charge) As long as the overall battery output meets the minimum for system operation, the battery will work.
The average lifespan for a Portable battery is about 500 discharge/recharge cycles (1 to 2 years) anything after that is a bonus
Replace the battery, issue will go away

This means something's wrong with your battery. Usually it means you need a new battery.
How long does the battery last, if you use the laptop without the AC adapter?

I have had three different laptops, last one an XPS from DELL which did the same thing. Replacing the battery solved all three laptops. How old is the battery you have in there now?
