The blinking orange battery light generally indicates that the battery isn't working properly, usually going out and not charging properly. In this case, since the adapter will not power the machine without the battery, and it should, I'm going to say that the adapter is going out and not getting the proper amount of power to the system. Try replacing the adapter. Be sure to replace it with a Dell replacement, the Targus brand universal adapters do not work well with Dell machines, and in most cases won't work at all.

Hello,
I recommend purchasing a new Dell Inspiron battery.
The code 4 blinking orange or amber and one green, means a defective battery.

SOURCE: Battery Light Flashes Orange and Green

I have had three different laptops, last one an XPS from DELL which did the same thing. Replacing the battery solved all three laptops. How old is the battery you have in there now?

You should talk to a Dell support specialist. The blinks are actually a code that tells you exactly what is wrong with it.

Hp dv 2500 mb-ct:P74511B2DV33T2 p/n GS846UA#ABA s/n 2CE7380QWD Laptop wont boot Lightning led flashes three times with or with out battery. Have done hard reset. Battery wont charge,blue power input...


My HP flashes 3 times when my battery is dead. Because of this I'm guessing that the AC Adapter is not working properly because it should turn on even with the battery out as long as it's plugged in. Many power adapters have a light on the actual converter box, you want to take a look for that light. If it is on, there is a problem with the cable and/or the connections between that box and the computer. If it is off, try another outlet. If you've done all this troubleshooting I would probably recommend getting a replacement AC Adapter. They are specific to the computer so make sure you purchase the correct one. Last time I replaced one the cheapest I found one (Dell Inspiron 1525) was @ Amazon.com

My laptop wont turn on. i also doesn't blink 3 times when i press the power button with the ac adapter plugged in. i tried taking off the battery and holding the power button on for 1 minute but that still...


Does the blue light come on at the side where you plug your ac adaptor in? If it does, and your laptop still wont turn on, its likely you have a motherboard failure. Also try this without the battery inside. If the light is not coming on the charger port at the side, then its most definitely your ac adaptor at fault.

Dead inspiron 8600


take out the battery and use the AC.
if that power up the laptop. then the battery is draining the power source. if not, the laptop power citcuit need to be check out, which I think should be done a repair shop.
