Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
When your battery indicator is flashing Red, it usually means that the charger is defective.
Dell also had a recall on some of its batteries. To see if you qualify for a free replacement click here: http://www.dellbatteryprogram.com/
If you want to reset your battery utility follow these steps:
1. Let the battery run completely dead. (Make sure all your work is saved)
2. Fully charge battery (You may still have flashing lights but if you turn your computer on and enter BIOS you can see the charge level)
3. Once again run battery dead.
4. Remove battery and wait 5-10 minutes.
5. Replace battery and use in normal operation.

The battery on my dv6000 works fine, but only goes to 80-85% charge, and the battery icon started flashing red when charged and windows was telling me it needed to be replaced, but it still works just fine. There is a thermistor inside the batteries, and if that blows it will disable the soft start feature, the computer has no way of detecting the battery temperature. It will still charge and be useable, but the computer will do something to warn you of a battery failure.

This is from Dell's D600 manual:
Check the battery status light — If the battery status light flashes orange or is a steady orange the battery charge is low or depleted. Connect the computer to an electrical outlet.
NOTE: Battery capacity (the time it can hold a charge) decreases over time. Depending on how often the battery is used and the conditions under which it is used, you may need to purchase a new battery during the life of your computer. If the battery status light flashes green and orange, the battery is too hot to charge. Shut down the computer, disconnect the computer from the electrical outlet, and then let the battery and computer cool to room temperature.
If the battery status light rapidly flashes orange, the battery may be defective.
