Orange battery light on, but computer says its running on electrc

\015 And the light beside it is changing from green to orange. What does this mean?\015\012thanks\015\012L.\015

Answers :

Hi, the orange light is meant to show a charging status, so if you have orange light and its running on electric it just means its plugged in and charging.
Orange LED means the battery is low and you need to charge it, once you plug in the AC adapter, the LED should change to green and will stay green as long as the charger is plugged in.
\015\012I hope this helps.
\015\012Good Luck.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 that won't start. The battery light would flash orange 4 times then blue once, and then start over with the same sequence.

The battery light flashes blue untill I push the power button, then that quits flashing. Pulled the harddrive, ram, dvd and still won't start. Also, removed the cpu and reinserted. Still
