Hello.

Sounds like a power jack problem.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.
The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.

Hope this helps.

You power cord connection is probably getting ready to go TILT on you. Take it to a LAPTOP repair company near your residence and have then check the soldier connections on the POWER CORD CONNECTION RECEPTICAL where it is attached to the Mother Board. This could save you a ton of money and maybe even your computer if the mother-board was to break totally. Some pressure, more than likely, has been applied to the Power Cord Connection in the Laptop. BE VERY CAREFUL. It could go at any time.....

Kindly,

Jim

Just a suggestion, but if you held it up on one side and it started to charge, I would remove and reinsert the battery, then unplug and put the plug back in, to ensure that all connections are in tight.

You have to check it with your provider since it has perhaps loose contact from the board to your battery or from your entrance power supply to your board. Or please check with Compaq expert near you.

Thank you. Blessings

Orange light just began flashing on my Dell inspiron 5100...everything else is fine! What's happening?


The battery is less than 100% charged; if it were fully-charged, the lamp would be green.

If it is "flashing", it's probably less than 10% charged.
Recharge it.

Problem with b130 batteries?


it is very possible that your a/c adaptor/charger is not working well enough to charge or keep you computer runing.
with a new battery you should put it on charge for several hour and charge it to the maximum.
do you know for a fact that the battery is new you put in it?
if the battery is used it may be trash also.
sort out the facts then look for the most obvious.
most obvious at this point it that a/c charger.
