No your PC is not hurt. The problem is that you motherboard is having problems reconizing the charger. I recomend calling Dell Costomer Service and telling them you problem and have them replace the motherboard and or battery.

My aspire 5100 wont hold charge without charger


If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Orange battery light comes on and the computer says low battery. Computer does not work even when plugged in to wall outlet. I don't think it is the adapter because blue ring on plug in to the com


Diagonizing and analysing this problem, it's obvious that the orange light means battery low.
Have u ever tried charging the laptop with another charger/adapter?
If no try it because some adapters/chargers don't work with some laptops. Also be careful to use the recommended adapter, some can spoil the laptop's panel.

Lenovo g550 orange flash 3 times


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.

Why does the battery light keep flashing?


The battery is failing to recharge itself.
Contact Dell -- a battery should last longer than that.

Battery icon flashing orange


Sorry to here about your problem with the orange flashing light.
1st. You really are not giving enough information to identify your problem.
2nd. If your battery is charging when unit is turned off and you can see a blue charging light on the front left panel, that's good but should only charge for 1 or 1 1/2 hrs. max.
3rd. If your charger is getting to hot to hold while attempting to charge the battery, you may have a bad battery.
4th. If the orange light disappears after removing the battery and replacing it with a known good battery, its the battery.
This unit is an HP and HP has a recall on many battey's. ( I have worked on al least 25 HP Laptops and in two years have not found a battery to return under recall ) Thanks, HP !!!

All and All, it sounds like the battery is NFG.
Drop me a email or reply here as to what you have found.

My Compaq Presario C500T lap top won't start


Generally speaking, an orange power light indicates problems with the power. You also described to a "T" how a bad battery behaves. To test this theory, take out the battery and plug in the laptop. It should power up and run. If so, it's time to invest in a new battery.
To be doubly sure, if you have anyone with the same laptop as yourself, plug in their battery to your laptop. It should work if their battery is good.
Thanks for using fixya.com. Please rate this tip accordingly if it provides the information you needed.

My lap top turns off *** soon as i remove the power cord.... its like my battery will not take charge at all.. the battery light flashes 2 green and one orange... its a dell 9100


Dell has problems with that motherboard not recognizing the battery or the adapter. If you get error messages about the battery not being correct or recognized, the board has issues.

If this notebook is always plugged in then the battery has shorted and won't hold a charge.

Best option is to try another battery. Another thing, if your system is more than a year old, the battery needs replacing anyway.

If you are going to use this plugged in, get another battery, charge it up and remove it.
