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.
