    All of a sudden my laptop started showing a red light as if the battery was low, then even plugged into the a/c adapter (power cord), it is completely "dead". No lights, nothing. Help!!!

    I am having the same problem. Latitude 100L will not power on even though plugged in and lights are blinking and has drained the battery.
    In my experience the fault must lie with the internal power supply unit, but i can't seem to find what make it is and where i can purchase one!

    My dell latitude 100 L will not boot up. When the power cord is unplugged and I try booting off the battery, the lights in front of the computer light up. When I take the battery out, and go off of the power cord only, no lights show up.

Take the battery out, connect the power plug and see if the laptop runs without the battery connected, the main battery may need to be replaced.

Dell latitude 100L power light flashes green as if

It sounds like you have a bad AC adapter . When you plug it in to the outlet in the wall and into your computer , do you see a charge indicator light on the computer? I'm asking you this because even with a bad battery your computer should operate without any problems with the AC adapter plugged in.

My Dell 100L will not switch on and battery will not charge.

since the LED is orange it might be a ram issue. try to locate the memory modules in your computer then try to reseat them. or if you have 2 ram modules try to remove 1 first then try to turn on the laptop check if it will do the same thing. then try removing 2 ram modules check if it will beep. if no beeps ask for mobo replacement. if it has beeps take note of the beep codes.
