Disable incessant 4 orange and 1 green blinking lights on Dell Inspiron 8600

This question is not answered

Hi, my old Dell Inspiron 8600 the battey led light keeps flashing orange 4 times followed by a green light. I've read that this is caused by a faulty battery cell. However, since this model is so old it would be a waste of money to buy a new battery.

How can I stop this annoyance?

I want to keep the battery in my computer and I am not going to buy a new battery for this. Is there a registry tweak or other sort of modification to stop this?

  • No, there isn't - the only ways are three:  remove the battery, replace it or cover the LED with a piece of black tape.

     

  • Does the battery work at all? If not, why do you want to leave it in. You can buy a "new" battery from many sellers on e-Bay for about $50.
