You need to recalibrate the battery. Follow the following steps.

1. Insert adapter and charge the laptop to 100%.
2. Remove the adapter and let the battery discharge completely.
3. Recharge the laptop to 100%.

Now your timing will be accurate.
Hope that helps

Battery life estimates vary in accuracy, and are based on algorythms comparing the output of the battery over time. As batteries age, this becomes less and less accurate. Since this is a 100L, if using the original battery, the battery has exceeded it's useful life and will likely have a short functional battery life. (I have an Inspiron 700m with it's original battery, and I get maybe 30 minutes from it, the meter will say 40 to 50 minutes remaining when it dies) Due to the design of a portable battery, which maintains a high output till exhausted, older batteries with short lives don't aid in battery time estimates.

In short, for a accurate battery life prediction, replace the battery.

Take the battery out, connect the power plug and see if the laptop runs without the battery connected, the main battery may need to be replaced.

Dell latitude 100L power light flashes green as if


It sounds like you have a bad AC adapter . When you plug it in to the outlet in the wall and into your computer , do you see a charge indicator light on the computer? I'm asking you this because even with a bad battery your computer should operate without any problems with the AC adapter plugged in.
