The flashing orange light could be the indicator to tell you that your wireless adapter is working and has a connection to your router, if you are not wireless, press the button that is flashing and it will disable your wireless connection,to turn back on press it again.
Or there is another smaller orange indicator which tells you you are runing on battey and it is in need of charge
There are a couple of things you can try. First let's make sure the battery has power. On the battery there is a little white button next to some LED lights. Press the button if you get no LED lights (they should be green) you have no power, if you get one fast blinking LED you have no power. Plug in your power suuply and make sure the green/orange light comes on on the adapter right where it attaches to the laptop. If you need to you can try a different power adapter if you can find on available from a friend or a store.
Assuming you have power we could try reseting the SMC. Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds to make sure the power on the laptop is off. Unplug the power cord and using a coin or key to turn the circular lock, remove the battery from the laptop.
Next with the battery out and the power unplugged press and hold the power button for 5 seconds then release.
Replace the battery and lock into place. Plug in the power cord. Wait 5 minutes and then try to power the laptop on with the power button again.
Hopefully this helps.

I'm afraid this sounds suspiciously like a motherboard problem. It would help to know what model etc, as some Gateway & EMachine model laptops have had extended warranties due to motherboard issues, or just go to Gateway.com and research it yourself.
press the fn key on laptop hold it down and then press the power key on the laptop. once u see any display on the screen you will get some tests running on the screen. The system will show you the error message which u need to note down. else you can do a Flea Power on your laptop. Remove the adapter and the battery and then press the power button and hold it down for 30 seconds then connect the battery and adapter back and try to turn on the laptop. See if the magic works for you
When you say charge light, was that the battery led light that you were referring to or the power button?
If it is the battery led light, try this:
Try to power on your laptop without the battery in your laptop.
take out the battery and just use the ac adapter, if it works fine then there could be a problem with your battery.
If is the power button that is flashing orange, then try to power cycle laptop.
turn off laptop.
take out the battery and the ac adapter.
then while those are out, you hold down power button for atleast 10-15 seconds.
put back the power source and check the led again.
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.
