The battery indicator keeps flashing even though the battery is showing compeletly charged. The flash pattern is four quick yellow/amber flashes then one green then four quick yellow/amber flashes. Anyone know what this indicates. The manual says an overheated battery could be the cause, however, after most of the day unplugged with the battery out it still does the same thing. Thanks Jim
It means you need to replace the battery. My wife's Inspiron did the same thing. Here is a link to someone else with the same issue, as well: http://west-wind.com/WebLog/posts/365.aspx I recommend third-party batteries from a quality source. They are quite good, and much cheaper than Dell-branded ones. Here's a source for both Dell-branded and third-party versions: http://www.batteries.com/index.asp?N=4294967279+4294967148+4294949141&Ne=25&Nu=p%5Fprodcode Plus, they are having a 20% off sale right now, using coupon code "FREE8"!
