Flashing red/green battery light
\015 I bought a non-Dell battery and now my battery light is flashing red and green. It says that I have 3 hrs left on my battery.\015
Some non-Dell batteries will cause the led to flash. There are some aftermarket batteries that have circuitry which 'fools the laptop' and prevents the flashing. As long as the battery is working there's nothing to worry about.
Well... maybe you should recharge the battery.
