Blinking battery light

The battery is fully charged and the battery indicator light has started to blink red while the machine is running with the charger plugged into the computer. It is the light to the right of the hard drive activity light.

It has not blinked like this in the past.

Any ideas

Green is charged, Orange is Charging and Red indicates a low charge or a possible weak or defective battery. All modern batteries are controlled by a microprocessor that monitors the health of the cells. Even if the battery is holding a workable charge, it can still be deemed "bad"

If the battery is fairly new you might get a replacement from Dell, if its a year or more old, it could be dying an early but not abnormal death. If more than 1.5 years old, be sure to check the Dell battery recall list as some of these are recalled and you'll get a free battery replacement if its on the list!

-Good luck

What does a orange power light mean


please see the commentary. God bless you

  • The majority of laptops will display a solid green, blue or purple battery light to indicate that the battery is fully charged. Most manufacturers indicate that a laptop is in the process of charging by displaying a solid or blinking green, orange, blue or purple light. If your battery indicator light is green, blue or purple, the battery is probably functional, regardless of whether the light is blinking. If the light is solid orange, the laptop is probably in the process of charging.

Battery Error Coneventions

  • Many battery manufacturers use rapidly blinking lights to indicate that a battery's charge level is low. In general, a laptop will rapidly blink orange or red when its charge drops below a certain level until the computer is plugged into a power outlet and charged. If your laptop's battery indicator continues to blink rapidly in orange or red or if it remains red even when it is plugged into the charger, it indicates a problem with your battery or the charger.
