Try this: remove your battery, unplug power, press and hold power button for at least 20 seconds, plug power cord back in but not the battery, press power and see if you get normal boot. If this is the case, your battery probably needs replaced.
Can you put it on power and check if there is any response . Also try to do a power cycle. Switch it off totally and power it back on .
If you can, take out the battery physically out and put it back. ( only if you can )

The flashing orange LED is a Battery Critically Low indication.
If the Windows Battery Meter and the BIOS do not show the batteries charging then there may circuit problem in your battery.
If you can, try battery in another system, if you can't, I'd try a new battery before doing any hardware changes to the system
Dell has a chip internal to the battery programed to shut down after a certain number of charge cycles. This means every time you plug the laptop in with the battery installed. When it reaches this determined number the battery effectively shuts down, even though technically it's still good. There have been loads of complaints on the net toward Dell over this issue. I have myself experience this. Battery good one day, powered down, went home, powered up... only to receive the deadly flashing light. Only cure is to replace battery. Several hacks trying to get around this but they're all horrible. Bad Dell - bad, bad Dell!
I think you may be referring to the green power light and the orange hard drive activity light.you should have a power icon located on the bottom bar on the desktop near the clock that indicates battery power.
Those LED's indicate a battery failure. If the battery is less than 14 months old, contact Dell for a replacement, if it is older, then you can find a new battery on Google for about half the price Dell charges.
