Sony :: What Does A Quickly Flashing Battery Light Mean

Jul 6, 2009

What does a Quickly flashing yellow/orange battery light mean?

I bought a replacement battery pcga-BP2E for my sony vaio vgn 417M.It ran off the battery and showed it was charging but % didn't go up. Every time I connect the power cable the battery light flashes rapidly and I can't find in any manual what it means.

Using my original working battery the battery light flashes slowly as it should and the laptop works ok.

10 days and I am still waiting for a relpy from the supplier atleast I started my complaint through paypal.

Dell :: Battery Light Flashing

May 9, 2009

Have a question for you. Last night I had my laptop connected up to the ECM of my car (for diagnostics purposes) and went for a drive with it connected to the ECM. No Problem. Got back from the trip and the battery was down to 4% so I promptly shut it down (after turning the car off).

I plugged the charger in and the battery is back up to 100% but for some reason the orange flashing battery light on the laptop keeps flashing. I have taken the power pack out and the battery is ok, works as per normal

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Battery Light Flashing

Jan 6, 2015

I have a N5010 Inspiron. My battery has been down to a few minutes for a yr or two. I keep my laptop plugged in always unless traveling.

Today, my battery light started flashing. Amber for times then white then repeats. Since I was plugged in I was perplexed. I looked on my screen and it showed 100 percent battery meaning I am plugged in.

Then I turned my computer completely off. THE LIGHT KEPT FLASHING. Now it is getting spooky. I unplug the power supply from the back of the computer and the light went off.

Hours later I plugged everything back in. Started the computer and the light started again. Since it is no warning for anything other than the battery, 

I tried unplugging while computer was on. Still flashing.

I turned off. Took battery out and put back in. Still Flashing. 

While off AND battery out I plugged in and no flashing

Put batter back in....plugged in and flashing resumed. 

So for now I am trying to ignore it....

HP ProBook 4530s :: No Battery Is Detected - Flashing Yellow Light

Jan 28, 2011

I bought a new ProBook 4530s less than 2 weeks ago. It is running Windows 7 64 bit. I was using it today on battery power when it shut down unexpectedly.  Apparently the battery was low.  I was listening to music and did not hear any low battery warning.  Certainly, there was no popup message.  I plugged in the charger and restarted the computer.  Now I see an icon on the bottom right of the screen that apparently means No Battery is Detected.  

The yellow light on the left side of the laptop next to the power cord is flashing.  I did some research online and tried removing and replacing the battery several times.  No change.  Originally, I was unable to start the computer from the battery at all.  Now I find that I have enough power that I can start from the battery, so it must be getting some power in spite of the icon.   I have now restarted several times, plugged in and on battery.  I always get the No Battery message and the flashing yellow light.  
 
I have looked at Device Manager, and it says that the battery is fine.

Acer :: 5135 Flashing Amber Light

Nov 26, 2008

I've got an Acer Aspire 5313 and I've never had any problems with it.

Last night it shut itself down to install updates when I was out of the room, so I left it off and didn't notice anything wrong. But today when I went to power it up I noticed that the battery light was flashing orange/amber while the power light was a solid orange and there was no indicator that it was plugged in.

If I unplug it and power it up the light stays a solid green, like normal, and I've got an almost full charge, but the instant I plug it in the light starts flashing amber/orange again and it doesn't seem to recognise that I've plugged the cord in.

I've tried a bunch of different 'solutions' that I've been able to find but none of them worked. I haven't downloaded anything in a while and I don't go anywhere near BIOS, since I've got no idea what I'm doing. I know very little about computers though, so there were some 'solutions' that I've not tried yet.

I use this for school, so it's used frequently for hours at a time. If it's simply a new power cord for it, which is what I first thought it might be, that's fine. But the green light on the power supply turns on normally, so I'm not sure that that's the problem.

HP/Compaq :: Hard Drive Light Keeps Flashing

Jun 2, 2009

Anything I do on this machine, the HD lights barley goes out. It just keeps flashing. I think it is what slowing my machine down. When i am playing a game, I get laggy fps and what not and I think it is the HD slowing it downs. Even when the machine is doing nothing the HD light is solid. I ran the HP HD tests and it found no issues. My "File searching index" for vista is turned off. I have enable write chaching and enable advance proformance enabled. Any ideas? I am getting pissed off with this becasue it really laggs my system down. It is a decent system when it works right..

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?

Acer :: Aspire 7220 Flashing Power Light, Doesn't Boot

Feb 26, 2010

I'm trying to fix my fathers laptop so he won't have to spend money on a new one. Here's the problem:

When I press the power button to boot the laptop it does not boot, it just flashes the power light(s) on and off at maybe 1 flash per second. I've tried removing the RAM-sticks one and one, removing the HDD, removing the battery and removing the DVD reader (not all at the same time, of course). None of those helped, it still did the same thing.

Then I tried to blind flash the bios from a CD, the laptop comes on with the fan at full blast, the DVD reader comes on and it stays on, but it never finishes and powers off.

HP/Compaq :: 12 Cell Battery Draining VERY Quickly

Aug 24, 2009

My year old 12-cell HP extended battery for my dv6870 is draining really fast. In 10 minutes it went from 100% down to 70% and all I am doing is browsing. Is the battery shot or is there anything I can do to save it?

UPDATE: From 100% to 7% in 25 minutes. It used to last 2-3 hours!

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: Carbon X1 - Battery Drains Quickly

Jan 24, 2013

Lenovo Carbon X1Bought ~2 months ago (new) at a reseller in the USi5 3rd generation @ 1.7GHz4GB DDR3 (soldered on motherboard)128GB SSD (Samsung), must be SATA III (6GB/s) I guessWindows 8 Pro x64 

Furthermore:
+40GB free space on the hard drive Original charger used, always . Laptop was never 'opened' (ie with screws)device mainly used to text editing, browsing and PhotoshopBackground apps/services: Apple iTunes services, Dropbox, Lenovo mouse/trackpad service and startup utilities like Google Update, Java update, Adobe Reader Speed launch.

I do not shut down my laptop most of the times, I simply put my computer in sleep modus (in other words: I close the lid of the laptop)I do play games on this laptop, but of course I do not expect the battery to last many hours when doing so. The battery drains quickly only in 'normal' situations - gaming, video editing and lots of Photoshop do not count of course.Connected to the internet all the time (no 3G, just WiFi)Bluetooth disabled. 

The laptop is fully charged using the original charger. The power plan is set to Power Saver (image). Brightness is set to around 60% of maximum according to the build in indicator of Windows 8. The apps that are open are Google Chrome ( with 5 tot 15 tabs most of the time), Outlook, Dropbox and one metro apps (weather or the app store).

(full image, click here)
 
As you can read, no heavy usage. The CPU is stable between 5% tot 20% and the RAM is at 40% to 70%.

Lenovo X230 Series ThinkPad :: Battery Drains Quickly In Sleep Mode / Power Management Center Won't Run

Apr 15, 2009

I have my lenovo x230 laptop set to sleep when I close the lid. When I close the lid the "sleep" icon on the back of the screen lights up. But the batter will not last through the night on sleep mode. Within five hours or so, the battery is completely drained and I have to plug in and boot up the system. I've never seen such poor batter performance during sleep mode on any other laptop I've ever owned. 
 
Another thread in this forum blames the USB port that allows you to charge mobile phones/etc. during low-power states and recommends disabling the "always power on" option fo this USB port in the Bios settings. At least my laptop still will not make it through the night in sleep mode. 
 
At this point, it seems my ownly option is to use sleep mode only when the laptop is plugged in and hibernation mode when on batter power, which is disappointing. I've never had to worry about this in the past with other laptops. Perhaps/probably related is the fact that the lenovo ThinkVantage Power Manager (v. 7.16) hangs at the splash screen when I try to open it, so I've been trying to manage the power through the windows control panel power settings.

Dell :: Power/Battery Flashing Orange

Jul 11, 2007

The battery/power signal (the three green LEDs right under the display on the right side) keeps flashing orange four times then blinks green once, and repeats.

The PC is on AC power and the battery is full too (99%). I don't know what the problem is.

I read around and it seems my battery is dead. Fortunately, my purchase of the XPS was just under a year ago, so I should get it replaced without paying up. I have a replacement battery that I bought at purchase. I hope it lasts loner. Do you guys reccomend taking out the battery when running on AC power?

Dell Mini 10 :: Flashing Orange - Safe To Run With No Battery Inserted?

Jan 30, 2013

My 4-year old Dell Mini 10 has started flashing orange just after bootup & then turns off. (Adapter LED is solid white, the flashing orange is the one at the front.) Removed the battery for an hour, since some postings say it's probably just hot; when it's reinserted the problem returns. But when I run it on AC power with the battery out, no problems.

This machine has had a weird life for a laptop, in that it has almost never been taken anywhere -- that is, it has only rarely run on battery power, and the battery has been fully discharged only a handful of times.

I'll be replacing it soon regardless, but for the month or so between now and then, is there anything wrong or unsafe about running it with no battery in the bay?

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%.

Dell Inspiron 1440 :: Touchpad Not Working Properly When Charging And Battery Indicator Flashing Red

Feb 11, 2013

I have a Dell Inspiron 1440 which I've been using since 2010. Recently I bought a new charger for my laptop as the old one got damaged and now when I'm charging the laptop the touch pad is not working properly. It is slow and sometimes I can't select items with the touch pad. So I changed the charger and when I checked in the shop the touch pad with new charger (the second one)  was working fine. But when I went home again the same problem with the touch pad when charging only. When I remove the charger it works fine. And I also tried with a friends charger (but another dell model) and it works fine.  And now my laptop battery indicator is blinking red three times. That also happens when charging only.

Dell :: Weird Battery Light Inspiron 13

Feb 23, 2009

The battery and AC adaptor for my Inspiron 13 don't seems to be acting strangely...

When the computer is off, and not connected to any power source, sometimes the battery light flashes. This happens even if the AC adaptor isn't plugged into the computer.

When the computer is off and it is plugged in, the light doesn't flash.

The battery light is on when the computer is plugged in, charging, and powered up.

Dell XPS 15Z :: Battery Not Charging - Light On Adapter Is On

Mar 17, 2012

When I plugged in my adapter to charge my laptop, it didn't respond to it. The light on the adapter is on, but the battery just wont charge.

I changed the AC adapter as a Hardware problem, but I couldn't change the battery because it is built-in.

On the other side of problem - I mean as a Software problem :

1. I tried to restore the system -from Backup and Restore -  till the first point but nothing happened except it restored the first password . . !

2. I tried to make a restore from Dell DataSafe local Backup, but the system said the adapter and the battery must both plugged where the adapter doesn't respond at all.

3. I tried with Ubuntu Operating System (Linux), when I thought that problem Might be from Windows 7.

4. I upgraded the BIOS drive.

5.. I set the BIOS setting to the default - F2

When I plugs the AC Adapter the percentage never reduce, but the hours remaining changes, exactly shows (829 hr and 48 min (20%) remaining).

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 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 :: Why/How Did My Order Ship So Quickly?

Mar 28, 2010

I ordered the system in my sig early morning on 3/24. At the time of the order, it was estimated to ship on 4/2 with an estimated delivery date of 4/9. When I called to check the status the next day (3/25), it stated that the order was processing. When I checked again later that night, it said it was shipped on 4/6. I checked the status again the next morning (3/26), and this time it said it was shipped on 3/28 with an updated estimated delivery date of 3/31. Now today, on the 28th, I got the 'order has shipped' email along with the FedEx tracking number. FedEx's estimated delivery date is 3/30.

Anyone have any idea why or how my order could have shipped so quickly? I never did catch it in the kitting/build/testing/boxing stages...and these stages usually take at least a few days. Could I be receiving a recently returned system that just happened to have the same specs? It seems almost unheard of to receive a new system in less than a week after ordering it...especially when considering that they are built overseas and that I picked standard 7-day shipping. Is there any way I can tell if it is a returned system?

My friends and family somewhat jokingly said maybe it's because of my previous order history. I ordered the SXPS 1645 in late November, but later ended up cancelling the order in December due to the throttling issues it was having at the time. When I cancelled the order, it was already in the build stage for a day or two. Could Dell maybe have noticed my history and "rushed" my order this time?
