Maybe your laptop is trying to say that the battery is dead. Maybe Dells do that after all. The laptop runs of AC power and gives some of it to charge the battery until it is full. It won't use the battery at all if it is full. That is why a laptop will run on AC power without the battery too.

Now, try removing the plug and start the laptop. Most probably it won't do anything except show those lights before it is completely gone.

Every electronic's battery (mostly Li-on) wears out slowly after a limit, or after careless usage. So, you need to replace your PC's battery. The time has come. Even your phone's battery is going to go out some or the other day.

I suggest you buy a battery (genuine Dell of course) from the company itself. Shop online or contact them. Otherwise some online stores like BestBuy and Amazon are good too.

What does the flashing red/green warning light mean?


It indicates that there is a battery problem. Eject the battery and put it in place again and reboot the laptop. If there is flashing still, you need to get it replaced. Looks like it is nearing the end of its lifecycle. A new battery should resolve it.

My Dell Inspiron B130 will not turn on


The battery is critically low, indicating that it is not getting a charge from the AC adapter. If the system will not power on from the AC adapter, then the motherboard power connection is suspect.

Motherboards are about $100 on EBay

Dell latatude D630 is docked/battery flashing 4 red 1 green


4 orange and 1 green can mean a battery malfunction, or it could be an indication that the battery is about to reach the end of its life cycle. When a battery is built, it has a planned expectancy. a date code is stamped in the electronics of the battery pack. as that date code is reached, the indicator lights on the computer let you know the battery (even if its working fine) is considered obsolete and needs to be replaced soon.

Battery indicator?


Hi there.
Sounds like the battery could be faulty.
The diagnostic procedures from the Dell User Guide are as follows:

Total Power Failure When Using a Battery
If an AC adapter is not connected to your computer, the computer's power source
is a battery. If the battery indicator flashes amber or is a steady amber, the
battery needs to be charged. If the battery is flashing green and amber, the
battery may be defective. To troubleshoot this problem, use the following
procedure.
1. Turn off the computer and peripherals, and disconnect them from AC power.
2. Reseat each installed battery by removing it and then replacing it.
3. Turn on the computer. Does the green power indicator light up?
Allow one minute for the computer to initialize its components before checking
for signs of power.
Yes. Continue to step 4.
No. Use the AC adapter to connect your computer to AC power. If the computer
operates normally when using AC power, go to step 7. If the computer does not
boot when using the AC adapter, see the previous subsection, "Total Power
Failure When Using the AC Adapter."
4. Does the battery indicator flash amber or show a a steady amber light?
Yes. The battery needs to be charged. Go step 5.
No. Go to step 7.
5. Connect the computer to AC power, and fully charge the battery.
For instructions, see the topic titled "Charging the Battery" in the online
System User's Guide.
6. As the battery charges, does the green battery indicator light up?
Yes. Go to step 9.
No. Go to step 7.
7. Is the battery indicator flashing green and amber?
Yes. Your computer may be in a hot environment. Charging the battery in this
condition may affect the life span of the battery. Continue to step 8.
No. The problem is resolved.
8. Disconnect the computer from AC power. Is the the battery indicator still
flashing amber?
Yes. You may have a defective battery. Continue to step 9.
No. The problem is resolved.
9. Remove the battery, and press its test button. Is the uppermost indicator in
the charge gauge of the battery flashing?
Yes. You have a defective battery. Continue to step 9.
No. The problem is resolved.
10. If a spare battery is available, fully charge it, and then install it in the
computer.
11. Turn on the computer. Is the power indicator off?
Yes. Your original battery is defective.

Good luck

Batt light flashes 4 red and 1 green over and over vostros laptop


Hi there. If your battery light is flashing 4 red and one green on the battery light indicator (as in the one next to the power and hdd led), then this is an indication that your battery is nearing the end of it's life, and it's time to get a new one. It will last a bit longer, depending on how much you use your laptop, but there will come a time when it won't work at all.

Red Flashing Icon


The icons from the left: 1. Power indocator 2. Hard Disk indicator --> it is a tube icon, not battery, but means hard drive. 3. Power Source indicator 4. Bluetooth indicator
The third from left means the power source indicator. Normally it is light green. If there is battery problem (can not charge or battery overload) it flashes amber/orange. If flashes red, it indicates that the battery power is low. You need to change the battery or connect the AC adapter.

Flashing device status light


Ok the lightning bolt is your power indicator: solid green-charging, Flashing green-fully charged, flashing red-low battery, flashing red three times the once green-bad battery. the "trash can" looking one is your hard drive activity indicator it will flash while your hard drive is reading and writing.

Flashing red light


If the sequence is 4 red, green, 4 red, green and so on- that's a code that indicates your battery is failing and is only providing less than 25% of its normal charge capacity.

That would mean your battery is basically dying and will probably keep headed downhill in a hurry. You should probably go ahead and start looking at getting a replacement.
