It is an error code. Dell support can tell you what the exact code means but usually it is a graphics card, power supply, RAM, or motherboard issue. Hope this helps.

The battery indicator of my Inspiron 1420 flashes amber and blue indicating that the battery is too hot to charge. Obviously the cooling fan is stuck. can anyone help me where I can buy a replacement...


It is not obvious that the cooling fan is stuck. If the battery flashes amber, amber,amber, amber, blue then repeats, the battery has an internal failure and needs to be replaced.
The cooling fan only cools the CPU and the graphics, not the battery.

Bettery problem


Hi,


It could be the battery is already degraded. If the battery is more than 2 yrs. old you could check the battery health meter and see if you need to replace it. Hope this helps

I've a dell inspiron 1521 battery problem


The battery has an internal failure (Most likely a bad cell) While the battery works, the resolution for the LED indication is to replace the battery. Batteries are a consumable item and generally, batteries have a life of 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles before replacement is necessary.

1721 Inspiron shows flashing amber, three times, then blue.


The cells in the battery are starting to go bad which is why the light is blinking the way it is.

Once you get a new battery put in there the light will stay blue instead of flashing amber.

Battery Charge light flashing 4 red one green Dell Inspiron 9200


usually, its an indication that the battery is nearing the end of its useful life. you can try to use another battery to isolate it further. If the same thing happens with another battery, chances are, the mobo is failing. Flashing the BIOS can usually help with battery issues. If another battery works fine and your computer is within its first year since you bought it, you can request a replacement battery from Dell

Flashing battery indicator


It means you need to replace the battery. My wife's Inspiron did the same thing. Here is a link to someone else with the same issue, as well: http://west-wind.com/WebLog/posts/365.aspx I recommend third-party batteries from a quality source. They are quite good, and much cheaper than Dell-branded ones. Here's a source for both Dell-branded and third-party versions: http://www.batteries.com/index.asp?N=4294967279+4294967148+4294949141&Ne=25&Nu=p%5Fprodcode Plus, they are having a 20% off sale right now, using coupon code "FREE8"!
