    Also another method is that if you can hold the power button down for 2 minutes, remove the battery and power at the same time and that will shut it down and clear the power cache (a flush of the battery and CMOS is required with some dell's.



    I tried the above solution and there was no change. Also, it will not power off unless I turn it off with the power button.

The ac adapter supplies a voltage that is converted by a samll circuit that supplies voltage to the unit when no battery is installed and also takes some of the voltage through a circuit to charge the battery. In some cases, this charging current is also protected with a small fuse and this may have blown out. The fuse protects the unit from supplying too much current in the case of a bad battery, much like the smoking battery problem that Sony has had. If a new adapter doesn't solve the problem, which I suspect it won't, the converter has failed.

Also another method is that if you can hold the power button down for 2 minutes, remove the battery and power at the same time and that will shut it down and clear the power cache (a flush of the battery and CMOS is required with some dell's.

    it sounds like it isn't your battery. it may be your CMOS, I would suggest calling the manufacturers corporate office and speak to a manager, don't call the toll free tech support number as you will be transferred to india. Say the following to the manager at the corporate office "I have been speaking with people in india and they have no idea what to do and were rude and vulger. (that will ensure they fix it promptly for you, if they won't than bring up the FTC and they will get it fixed for you.

Battery light flashes green 5 times then changes to orange.


What is the make and model of your laptop? What operating system is being used?

Battery light flashes green 5 times, then changes to orange.


The flashing green indicator is telling you (and the notebook) that the battery is almost fully charged, but then by switching immediately to flashing orange, the status has changed to "battery charge is low". This is not normal behaviour and probably indicates a serious issue with the battery. My guess is that the charging is initiating some kind of rapid battery self-discharge.

Notebooks will power up and work without a battery just fine.

Try to operate yours this way. This will eliminate the battery from the loop as a potential cause of the BSODs you are seeing.

Dell 9400 wont show AC power icon


If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the about10.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Solid green: The battery is charging.

  • Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.

If the computer is running on a battery, the about41.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).

  • Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.

  • Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.
Looks like the AC adaptor is faulty.

My battery light flashes green and orange whether its charging or unplugged? is there a problem?


Flashing green and orange: battery is too hot to charge

if it flashes orange 4 times it means a defective battery

check the system setup (usually by hitting something like F2 or DEL when the laptop first powers on). there should be an option in there to "re-learn or "refresh" the battery. it will send it through a few charge/discharge cycles and then if the battery isn't toast it should work thereafter

Dell inspiron 1100 wont stay on


Normally the battery light will rapidly flash orange if the battery is defective. It will alternate between orange and green if it is too hot to charge. Or it will either flash orange or be a steady orange if the battery is low or completely discharged. Based on this and the fact that you cannot get it to stay on for more than 7 seconds, I would have to say that you need to recharge the battery by plugging the laptop into an AC outlet. After all, it can't run without the juice.

Latitude d505 not charging


If the system runs using the AC adapter, but the battery doesn't hold a charge and the battery indicator LED flashes orange, then replace the battery (A battery with an internal failure may flash 4 times orange then once green and repeat)

The normal lifespan of a PC battery is 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles (roughly 12 to 18 months)

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

Dell Latitude C610 battery claims its too hot to charge....


The charge light flashing orange-orange-orange-green....-orange-orange-orange-green.... usually means the battery has reached the end of its life and now it needs replacing.

There are three ways to test your battery:

1) If the battery has a button on the bottom of it and a row of 5 leds, then push AND HOLD the button for 5 seconds. The LEDs should all turn OFF, then turn back on showing a pattern. If all five LEDs turn on, the battery is dead.

2) Open the Dell Quickset application (doubleclick it in system tray), go to Battery Meter, go to the battery health tab, and pick your battery. It should tell you there if the battery is healthy or not.

3) Reboot your computer and go into the bios. Pick the Battery tab in the bios. It will list the battery health there.
