Your battery not able to hold a charge is a bad battery.
Love your precise description & diagnoses. Wish others would describe their troubles as well as you!
Have a great day!

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!

maybe the ac adapter is burned up or outlet bad or the ac jack on computer is bad.
