Latitude D600 battery light?

  • The user said that the battery on his Latitude D600 battery blinks red sometimes and green others. What's the reason?

  • XYZZY2000,

    Thank you for using the Dell Community Forum.

    The battery light should only be green.  If it changes to any other color, then the battery or the charging system may be bad.  I suggest that you run the Dell diagnostic program on your computer to ensure that all of the components work properly. Place the System Software CD in your computer. Reset the machine and when the Dell logo appears on the screen, press and release [F2] several times until you are in the BIOS. Press the right arrow key to go to the BOOT menu or hold [Alt] and [P] simultaneously to progress to the second page. Change the boot sequence to CD/DVD drive, Floppy drive, Internal HDD. Now press [Esc] or [F10] to save and exit the BIOS.

    The following knowledge base article can help you with this:

    The program should automatically load. Choose to run the test on the questionable component(s).

  • Thanks. The user said that his other battery is steadily green, so I'll open a support case to get the battery replaced.
