Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
I have a flashing red and green light next to the power light at the top right hand where the screen is joined to the body. The one that is flashing is the battery icon with danger sign inside it. It flashes when it is plugged in and when it is running on battery. When I switch it off and it is still plugged in it continues to flash. However, if I take the adapter out of the computer it stops flashing. What is it and how can I resolve it? Thanks in advance! Aileen ok so i have a inspiron 1501, and it is a LITTLE over a year old (well i bought it new last year around this time) and all of a sudden when i start up my computer it says that the AC Adapter was not recognized. SO my cord always gets knocked out, so i didnt realize that my computer wasnt ever charging, so now my computer is at 0% battery, plugged in, NOT charging. but my computer still works plugged in. nothing was showing up on my battery icon for about a week after this happend, and NOW all of a sudden, its doing the 4-orange 1-green blink. i dont know what i should do :(
The first thing I would try is to get a new power adaptor. You can find a OEM on ebay probably for about $20. Just type in your model number on the search section on ebays homepage.
