    My 5160 will flash 4 Orange and 1 Green. I changed the power plug after it wouldn't charge at all. After that it wil charge but still flashes. The fan will not run also. I just restored it in hopes of fixing that along with other things. It fixed everythign except these. Any ideas?

    Thanks

This is directly from the User Manual:
If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the Battery light operates as follows:
• Solid green: The battery is charging.
• Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.
If the computer is running on a battery, the light operates as follows:
• Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).
• Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.

Battery led blinks orange on dell inspiron 5160


if the battery LED blinks orange, most likely there is a problem with the battery itself. Try to remove the battery and have the power cable connected to it. If there is no battery LED blinking, call Dell to replace the battery itself..

the flashing Orange and Green LED is a terminal battery failure:

The system not booting to the hard drive could be a HDD failure or a corrupt operating system. Boot to the XP CD, Press R at the 1st prompt to access recovery console, then run CHKDSK /R

Battery light flashes 4times orange then 1green


We had the same problem. I figured out it was NOT the main battery, but the auxilary battery. The batter life WITH the auxiliary was 68% total, when I removed the 2nd battery the battery life shot back up to 98% AND the flashing orange / red lights were gone (both on the power source and off). I then replaced the auxiliary battery with a spar back up to make SURE that it was not a fluke and with the new backup battery firmly in place the lights still did not flash. Problem solved.

Inspiron 5160 screen is blank


It seems to me the LCD cable is either not properly unplugged or LCD ha gone bad.
Connect external monitor to the laptop and check if you have the Video on the external monior. If everything looks fine on external monitor then you can get the LCD replaced.
In case system does not power up and there are no indications of power.
Here are the steps:
Connect only the AC Adapter and take the battery out.
Check if you have a green led lit on the AC Adapter.
If AC Adapter does not has a green led please replace it with a known good AC Adapter.
If the AC Adapter has a green led but still no power it can be the system board which has gone bad.

Dell Inspiron 5160 Black screen on power up


There is a small board that the power button is integrated into that connects to the motherboard. When this power board malfunctions it will cause this issue with the machine. It can, and quite often does, damage the motherboard when it malfinctions. You should take the machine in for a power board replacement and a diagnostic to make sure that the power board hasn't damaged the motherboard.
