You have a ground fault issue in the DC JACK.
There are escentially 4 circuits in the jack and one is not making contact.
1: Negative Charge circuit (outter ring)
2: Negative Run circuit (outter ring)
3 Positive (Inner Ring)
4: Signal (center pin)
I believe the negative charge circuit (outter ring) is not making contact internally. Typically what happens on that model DC Jack is the tension contact metal becomes fatigued, and does not touch the outter ring.
This could come from Heat causing early fatigue of the metal.
Or normal wear, the metal has simply worn out from regular insert/removal.

Start by checking the power supply with an ohm meter for the proper output. Anything higher or low than one volt means the supply is faulty and will need replaced. This could also be a battery issue, if a fail safe in the battery has engaged. Try removing the battery and see if it works properly on the supply only, if so, then the battery will need replaced. Also, remove the memory, and try each chip one at a time in each slot. A faulty memory chip pr slot can have this effect. If these three check good, then I'm afraid the problem is with the power management system on the motherboard, and unfortunately the motherboard will have to be replaced. Since the light is flashing, this indicates a code. You can find a light and sound codes list for your machine at Dell's support site. This may help in identifying the exact problem area.

That usually indicates battery is beginning to go bad. Eventually it will not hold a charge and will need to be replaced.

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

it means your battery is damaged. avoid using battery while using charger in your house. remove battery to be safe. battery is for outside or for travel only.
