Flashing orange and yellow lights

My Acer Aspire 5720z Laptop usually has a Green Halo light on the power button, and the 2 other LED lights that are normally green are not normal too... The Battery light and the Halo light are flashingback and forth from Orange and yellow, and the Battery light is flashing orange. The green hard drive light is locked on, and I'm afraid to turn off my comp, cuz idk if my hard drive is broken.

    I had the same problem, removing the battery did not work for me. For a while it would start to boot, tell me the battery is empty and I need to plug in AC (but it was plugged in). Couple of restarts and it worked for a day and then just did not start up any more....

    Di I need to change the whole motherboard or can I get away with just the DC power module? e-bay offer those cheap, compared to a motherboard...

Most likely your battery is dead.
If you are worried about your HD , the best thing to do would be to power it off.
Remove the battery and see if it will boot on the AC adapter.
If it boots , just get a new battery.
If not you have a motherboard issue and need to call Acer if it is under warranty.

No, green light flashing when hard drive is working.
Orange light is when your pc not have power on or not have enough power on.
