That usually indicates battery is beginning to go bad. Eventually it will not hold a charge and will need to be replaced.

if you have tried both batteries with the same laptop and they are giving you the same error code, then it could very well be a motherboard problem, both the batteries cannot be bad, what you can do is try these batteries on some other compatible laptop model to check if they work fine there. Also try swapping the AC adapter as in both case you might be using the same Ac adapter, try using some other good known AC adapter as well.
Further queries are welcome

You can't get the modern batteries to come back to life. Time to get a new one.
A suggestion: When using a laptop battery, run it on battery and discharge it until it shows about 2 to 3% charge left at least once a month. Do not keep charging it without letting it run down periodically. Most important--do not run always plugged in to line current.

Testimonial: "Thanks, that is a good tip. After a full charge to battery, I did a full discharge, started in command prompt mode, to drain battery with DOS. Now OK"
Unseat and reseat the memory in the laptop one stick at a time in each slot one at a time. Turn on the laptop after each reseat of memory.
If that doesn't work then take out the hard drive and then the dvd drive.
Turn the laptop on again and if you still can't get video on the screen then the motherboard is defective and would need to be replaced.

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