Dell XPS 15 L502X :: Battery Light Blinking White Twice

Mar 23, 2013

Apart from the fact that I had too many problems with my L502X laptop, right now my problem is:

When I press power button on the device, battery icon blinks white twice, then system boots up. But normally there should be light on Power button and other 3 shortcut buttons, but they keep dark even though laptop works.

There is no error message or something else related with my battery, and windows says that battery is fully charged when it's plugged in which is pretty normal. I tried diagnostics but there wasn't any error messages.

My Laptop is 1 year and 5 months old. There are 2 problems I am facing with my battery:

1) When it is charging, at around 86% level, it stops charging and I see an orange light blinking at the battery icon and it continues to blink unless I turn the power off and allow the battery to discharge for a while.

2) at around 45% to 50% level, the battery level suddenly drops to 7% level and then I have to charge again.

Acer TravelMate 5760 :: Does Not Power Up - Led Light Blinks Orange Few Times

Dec 28, 2014

The laptop is just over a year old, and does not power up at all. This started a couple of weeks ago. At first the LED light would blink orange a few times when the laptop was switched on, but nothing else happened. Then it might just start up, and while booting up the battery light would blink and it would switch off .

I did try removing the battery etc. to discharge of the mainboard as advised, but no difference. I have tried other sockets, same result. I have now left it unplugged for a few days and there is not even the orange light any more.

Dell Inspiron 14Z :: Battery Not Charging - Lights Flashing Orange 3x Then White

Apr 7, 2013

My laptop is just over a year old, and out of the warranty. I'm particularly upset about this.

My battery, which was working just fine yesterday is now giving me a "plugged in," not charging message. The lights on the front of the computer (Dell Inspiron 14z, 2012 model) is flashing orange 3x then white.

My mom has the same laptop as me and hers is working fine. Her adapter (which works for her) would not charge my battery. Her battery worked in my laptop but would not charge. Using her battery, I updated the BIOS since I couldn't previously as it was less than 10%.

Acer :: ( Aspire 1654) Blinking Battery Light

Sep 10, 2008

My battery life was appauling (15 mins), so I decided to do a full discharge and recharge (Nothing to lose by doing it)

After this was done I loaded back into windows and checked my battery monitor, unplugged my laptop and waited 10 minutes.

It was still at 100% 10 minutes later.

I looked in another utility and it was reporting ludicrous values for Full Capacity - 920,643mWh (At this point I became very scared of the prospect of a Lithium Fire).

I worked out the capacity of my battery:

wattHour = ampHour * Volts

Ah of my battery is 2.0, and it provides 14.8 Volts

Max battery capacity: 29.6wH (29600mWh)

The program is reporting 29834mWh (Which seems like a perfectly acceptable value considering not all batts are the same)

Seems like the battery is still good... (It's certainly running longer than before, up to 30 mins so far).

I'm sure my battery is dying (3 years old), just this makes it seem like it isn't?

Dell Inspiron 1520 :: Flashing Battery Light - Blinking Steadily

May 20, 2009

My Inspiron 1520 just recently started blinking a red battery light. It just keeps blinking. Theres no stop to it... even if i re-insert the battery it shows the blinking red light and it keeps blinking steadily. Also when checking with quickset it doesnt recognize any battery at all. When i remove the ac adapter my pc just shuts off and wont run until plugged in. I read in the manual and it told me to contact dell if it happened.

I dont know if its defected or something? My warranty is pretty much dead... and I've always left the computer plugged on.. dont know if that affects the battery. Will I have to replace my battery, if it runs out or is defected? I checked and its $135 bucks for a new battery....

Dell Studio 1558 :: Not Booting / Battery Status Light Keeps On Blinking When Power Button Pressed

Jan 10, 2015

I have a Dell Studio 1558 laptop which is currently four years old and out of warranty.

Currently, with or without the battery with AC adapter connected when I press the power button, the power light does not light up but the battery status light keeps on blinking until the power button is pressed. I don't see any boot up screen or hear any sound of CPU fan running in the mean time. Basically, it does not start at all.

I recently got new dell authorized battery as a replacement for laptop fearing that could be source of problem. However, the new battery does no good. I checked the battery health and status and its fine.

Before this issue the laptop would start and immediately on boot screen it would shut down. So, I got it fixed from a repair service center who cleaned up the clogged cpu fan. It worked fine for two days and then the issue resurfaced.

Now, it does not start at all. I even checked with another adapter and also changed the CMOS battery (as date and time kept changing on every boot) but the issue still remains.

Also tried removing and reconnecting the RAMs one after another and then trying to boot. Also tried draining the static charge if any after removing the battery and adapter and then holding the power button for 50 seconds. Reconnecting with ac adapter with or without battery then also does not start the system.

Dell :: XPS M140 Flashing Orange Power Light

Oct 10, 2008

My Dell XPS M140 has a power light on the bezel that blinks orange very rapidly. This usually happens when I leave the charger on the wall over night or for long periods of time.

However, when I take the battery out and push the button the battery itself, there are 5 green lights, so I assume all is fine, but what is with the orange flashing light on the bezel?

Dell XPS 14Z :: Red Blinking Charger Light - Win 7

Jan 8, 2015

About three weeks ago, I came in to the machine to begin my day.  The machine had been plugged and charging through the night, status=Hibernated.  This is my common practice.  I immediately noted the Charger light on the hinge was blinking alternately white then three or four quick red blinks rather than the usual steady white when the charger is plugged in.  

I interpreted it as some sort of alarm; but after an exhaustive look, running diagnostics, searching DELL website and viewing the User manuals, I cannot find an answer. 

· I checked the Windows 7 battery app and the DELL Battery Meter and “Battery Health” showed the battery to be performing normally.    
· I went to DELL support and ran the battery diagnostics which were OK.   
· The problem is seen always several hours of charging with no activity; and it is intermittent.  It has happened several times since the first time.  It happened again this morning.
· I made the assumption that the red light was a warning and the battery was failing or in trouble – no.
· Then I thought it might be due to overcharging.  If so, shouldn’t the problem be every time I leave it on overnight? 
· Note my solution: If I unplug the machine and go on battery power when the red light is blinking and do work on the machine, when the battery goes down 10% or so, the red blinking light stops. 
· My machine is otherwise working well.

Acer Aspire E5-571 :: Flashes Orange Light And Won't Come On

Jan 13, 2015

At first the power light was blue, and when I plugged it in the light around the power cord would light up, now its not doing that, and when I press the power button a little orange light flashes at the bottom for a few seconds and that is it. I bought this in a really big hurry, because I do school online. I do own and Alienware, and it was having network problems. So I found a guy who had this computer, and he turn it on for me, the power light was blue, he told me that it hadnt been plugged in in a while. He gave me a 90 day warranty, along with the charger. I brought it home set it on the desk and plugged it in. Left it on the charger for about 9 hours. Pressed the power button, a little orange light flashes at the bottom for a few seconds and thats it. My question is, is this savable? It could be a battery or it could be the charger. Those parts are not expensive, and I know a friend who could really use a laptop. Or should I sell it for parts..

Dell Inspiron 6000 :: Won't Go Pass Black Screen With Blinking White Line

Mar 25, 2013

I recent;y installed a version of windows on my Dell Laptop, Inspiron 6000. I worked for a week or two then when I turned it on a couple days ago, it won't go pass the black screen with the blinking white line. A user some where on this site on an other post that had similar problems said that  it to re-install and delete the existing partition and create another one with 120GB. I did but when creating another partition, I tried to type in the 122880 MB (122880MB = 120GB), and upon pressing ENTER, the numbers 122880 goes back to the number of MB of the partition disk space I had previously. I hope this all make sense. I do not have the money to buy another laptop. I have a Windows XP CD, but not the original. The laptop worked fine before with this version.

To fix the blinking line on the start-up black screen, all I need to do is to re-install windows XP and change the partition to 120GB. But every time I try to change the number of MB, it doesn't work but reverts back to the original number. Is there another way to fix the blinking-white-line-on-the-start-up-screen?

Also, I tried to use the repair control...doesn't work.
