I presumed\015\012that it was due to unknowingly power source was disconnected and now battery is\015\012also drained. \015\012\015\012 \015\012\015\012I checked\015\012the power source and restarted the PC. But still the orange LED was flashing. Checked\015\012the battery status in BIOS and in windows as well: its shows 99% percent charged.\015\012So to test the battery I just removed power sources but again PC went down :(\015\012\015\012 \015\012\015\012Now the\015\012situation is that both BIOS & Windows says there is no battery in the\015\012system. Where both at this location it was saying that battery was charged 99%.\015\012So I just diagnosed system with In built utility and it returns error code 0146\015\0122000-0146. Seems this error is reflection to disk issue. \015\012\015\012 \015\012\015\012Still pc is\015\012running with AC power source but can not able sustain for a second on battery. I\015\012am thinking this should be H/W issue but it would be great help if anybody has\015\012solution or workaround for this issue.\015\012\015\012 \015\012\015\012Thank you,\015

Answers :

The error code 0146 and the battery are two separate problems. First the battery problem is simple, it's bad and needs replaced. It being bad can refer to a developed short, a fail safe kicked in, or it's simply worn out. It is a battery after all, ad they don't last forever, the more you use them the quicker they wear out. A bad battery causing an issue is vary common with Dell machines, and a false battery reading with a failing battery is also common. The orange flashing battery light is the indicator that the battery isn't working properly, either by fail safe or wear.

\015\012The error code 0146 Is from the short test on the hard drive and indicates the a sector is going bad, and eventually the hard drive is going to fail. At this point, your hard drive may last days, or months. Either way, I suggest that you back up all important data, and purchase a new hard drive for the imminent failure. You might even go ahead and set it up, this way you'll be prepared when it does go, and you won't have any downtime.
