    Would I be correct to assume that the system works as normal if it is plugged in but if you remove the charger it powers down since the battery is not holding a charge? Also how long have you had this machine? Are you the original owner?

    What operating system are you using. And are you talking about flashing on the task bar where the battery is an icon or you asking about your adapter...

Hi there. If your battery light is flashing 4 red and one green on the battery light indicator (as in the one next to the power and hdd led), then this is an indication that your battery is nearing the end of it's life, and it's time to get a new one. It will last a bit longer, depending on how much you use your laptop, but there will come a time when it won't work at all.

I have an old Carrier N1340 air conditioner that works when switched on, green light flashes 4 times, for a few times then it shuts down. There is also a flashing red light inside that unit.


There will be a list of flash codes in your manual or on the inside cover of the unit indicating what the problem is eg. low pressure or high pressure alarm

Hi. i have a dell vostro 1000 which would not charge its batt so i bought a new batt that had no charge then charged it and it worked once. but now will not charge nor will the batt charge light stay on....


Could be many things, not necessarily in this order, but the ac adapter has gone bad(highly suspect), the power converter/charge board has gone bad, the power plug receptacle has an intermittent break in it from years of use (might be able to re-solder that one back on the board ) - or the new battery is not as new as you thought. In any event, You should send it to an authorized repair center - looking at a $100 bill or more.

My dell vostro 1000 won't turn on the green light


Try to do this: (Draining flea power)
1. Unplug the ac adapter (if connected)
2. Remove the battery
3. Press and hold the power button for at least 10sec.
4. Put back the battery and ac adapter
5. Turn it on

- check if you can now boot to windows, if not there could be a hardware problem and next step would be running some diagnostic test on the computer for hardware problem.

My Dell laptop's battery charging circuit faulty.


try to remove your batt and check if laptop works fine with ac adapter alone.

if yes then put batt in then check how much charge you have if you have about 10% then update the bios immediately.

if fails then have the batt replaced.

Dell Vostro 1000 will not boot.


It maybe the power adaptor is loose on the motherboard. Push the cord in and rotate it and continuously push the power button if it starts that is your problrm. You can temporarily fix it with tape once you discover where the cord wants to be or you can use a clamp.

Flashing device status light


Ok the lightning bolt is your power indicator: solid green-charging, Flashing green-fully charged, flashing red-low battery, flashing red three times the once green-bad battery. the "trash can" looking one is your hard drive activity indicator it will flash while your hard drive is reading and writing.
