power light flashing

This question is not answered

Hi. The power light on my inspiron 1545 is flashing orange 4 times and white once. The orange light means the battery is about to go but I have it plugged into the mains. Can anybody enlighten me as to what this could be? Thanks.

  • hi, carok, mine is doing the exact same thing. before i got it turned back on this morning, everything was completely dead. it was plugged in while it was dead, too.

    for a few days previous to this, each time i turned it on i got a message saying it wasn't plugged in to a dell power supply and the system would adjust to the power level available. did yours do that too?
