It's an indicator that your battery is dying, or going out of power.

Try this:

I found a rectangular piece of piece of clear plastic clinging to the back of the laptop above the contacts. The contacts are mounted in a dark plastiic plug.The clear plastic piece is about a half-inch long, 1/4 inches wide and less than an eighth of an inch thick.

I pried down the plastic plug so there was a gap above it and wedged in the clear plastic, lowering the contacts a few millimeters.

When I plugged my battery in, the light immediately went to green.

I prefer neater repairs than is. But what the heck was that clear plastic doing there in the first place. Did the manufacturer discover a misalignment with the battery contacts and stick on the clear plastic to fix the problem? Was the clear plastic wedged in originally as I have done, or simply placed above the contacts, as I found it? Was the plastic wedged in originally, knowing that this was a fix that was bound to fail?

I'm not particularly proud of the repair I made, but at least I've got a laptop with a rechargeable battery.

This means you're running out of battery. So you need to switch on to its adapter and plug it to the power source to let it charge.

3 orange flashes means flat battery. If you have a faulty charger or charger socket on the laptop then the battery wont charge or power up with just the charger connected.

The battery symbol and the bottom left of my dell vostro 1510 laptop keeps flashing orange and blue. what does this mean? i have unplugged the charger but dont know the reason for this. please help me....


zy_khalid

Normally if the battering symbol is flashing while AC Power is connected this means that there is a problem with the battery and/or the charging circuit on the computer. I woould recommend that you contact Dell support to see if your battery is in warranty and can have it replaced. Note the battery normally has a one year warranty but you can purchase extentions on this.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

A flashing orange battery charging light is a failry universal symbol that means the battery is detected, but NOT charging. Usually, this means the battery has gone bad. In some cases, a slow orange flash means bad, a fast flash means very very low charge (or vice versa)

For your laptop in particular, go here for official illustrated documentation on the battery lights and meanings :

Battery won't charge


Completely drain the battery so the computer wont even switch on and charge it over night. If its still not working after that then you need to get a new battery.
