DC in icon

blinks orange - Power supply malfunction

If the DC icon blinks.
1. remove the battery and ac adapter to cut power supply to computer.
wait 5 minutes
2. reinstall the battery and ac adapter.
If the power supply microprocessor detects a malfunction the dc in icon blinks orange, the blink pattern indicates an error.
First off for 2 secnds
Error code 8 blinks
1 = light is on for one second
0 = on for half second
Interval between data bits - off for a half second.
if the problem remains write down exactly how it is blinking.
