SOURCE: Inspiron Battery Light Flashing Orange

Battery.

Dell has a chip internal to the battery programed to shut down after a certain number of charge cycles. This means every time you plug the laptop in with the battery installed. When it reaches this determined number the battery effectively shuts down, even though technically it's still good. There have been loads of complaints on the net toward Dell over this issue. I have myself experience this. Battery good one day, powered down, went home, powered up... only to receive the deadly flashing light. Only cure is to replace battery. Several hacks trying to get around this but they're all horrible. Bad Dell - bad, bad Dell!

My laptops shut down when i put the adapter and doesn't get start up , but it's work normally with betray


Problem description:The laptop shuts off when AC power adapter is plugged in. The laptop works fine on battery power but as soon as you connect it to AC adapter, the laptop turns off.
Possible cause:1. Power adapter failure.
2. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution:First of all, test the power adapter. Make sure the adapter outputs correct voltage. It's possible that the output voltage is not correct and the laptop shuts down to prevent the damage. Test your laptop with another known good power adapter.
If the problem still exists, even after replacing the adapter, most likely it's the motherboard failure. Replace the motherboard.

After connecting the ac adapter the LED shuts down and the laptop is not working anymore.


Pls check if the battery is faulty. Does it work with AC Adapter only (battery detached from laptop) ?

Which LED shuts down? Pls provide more details.

I heard a "snap" noise and my laptop shut down


Hello,

Most of the time when you hear that kind of noise and it was plugged into the AC adapter, a power surge hit your pc and it will need a new mainboard to power back on.

Sorry for the bad news.

Asus ac adapter will not wrk green light on adapter


First check the wall socket make sure you are getting power, plug a lamp into it for instance. If there is no green light on the adapter then it is bad and you will need to order a new one from your computer manufactor.
