Try taking the battery out, and putting it back in, hold the start button till it comes on. If not, it's possible it's just un-chargeable. And you'll have to goto ibm.com to look for a replacement battery. Let me know if this helps

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 that won't start. The battery light would flash orange 4 times then blue once, and then start over with the same sequence. Pulled the power board and fixed the solder joints on...


This is directly from the User Manual:
If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the Battery light operates as follows:
• Solid green: The battery is charging.
• Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.
If the computer is running on a battery, the light operates as follows:
• Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).
• Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.
• Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.

Battery icon flashing orange


Sorry to here about your problem with the orange flashing light.
1st. You really are not giving enough information to identify your problem.
2nd. If your battery is charging when unit is turned off and you can see a blue charging light on the front left panel, that's good but should only charge for 1 or 1 1/2 hrs. max.
3rd. If your charger is getting to hot to hold while attempting to charge the battery, you may have a bad battery.
4th. If the orange light disappears after removing the battery and replacing it with a known good battery, its the battery.
This unit is an HP and HP has a recall on many battey's. ( I have worked on al least 25 HP Laptops and in two years have not found a battery to return under recall ) Thanks, HP !!!

All and All, it sounds like the battery is NFG.
Drop me a email or reply here as to what you have found.

T43 laptop will not charge the battery


Can you start the laptop on the mains charger? If not then either charger is faulty or dc connector on motherboard is broken

Latitude d505 not charging


If the system runs using the AC adapter, but the battery doesn't hold a charge and the battery indicator LED flashes orange, then replace the battery (A battery with an internal failure may flash 4 times orange then once green and repeat)

The normal lifespan of a PC battery is 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles (roughly 12 to 18 months)
