Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook

2 Answers

Blinking lights must mean something, but I don't know what.

Re: Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop, the light in the upper right of the keyboard blinks 4 times orange, 1 time green (repeating), even when the computer is shut down. Does this mean something? My "Product information guide" is useless in troubleshooting.

    It is plugged in when not on.

    I do shut it down, rather than just closing the lid.

    I do not run it on the battery very often. (In fact, if it is a battery problem I have been getting occasional messages that I might need to replace my battery soon.). Thanks.

    Do you leave your laptop plugged in when it's shut down?



    Do you actually shut it down or just put it to sleep by closing the lid?



    Do you run it on Battery power a lot?



    All thes make a difference.

I honestly believe the problem is your battery needing to be replaced. I would replace the battery, and allow the new batter to fully charge and see if the problem persists. Some batteries, when they start to go bad, can cause shorts, and that may be what's setting of your lights.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

I have a dell inspiron 1525 the battery light was blinking orange and wouldnt come on so listening to an expert i bought a new battery when you first plug it in should the light still be orange??


Hi. Blinking orange light on battery indicator means it's charging. To make sure, point your mouse to the battery icon on the Taskbar located on the lower right-hand corner of your screen...near the system time and speaker icons. It should say plugged in, charging. If you see "plugged in, not charging, then you need to call Dell Phone Support for additional help.

ON the lower right of my computer, by the power indicator and the battery indicators, the battery indicator is blinking 4 times orange and once green. What does this mean. My battery is also not changing...


It means that the battery has reached its "end-of-life", and will not recharge. Replace it, either by purchasing a replacement on eBay, or a replacement from Dell (telephone or web-site).

Battery light flashes red 4 times


Check your users manual. Normally if it is blinking it is powering up, but may be different depending on model.
