Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
Dell Inspiron 6000. When laptop AC adapter is plugged into te wall, the battery light flashes orange and will not function without being plugged in. However when I take the battery out it has the 5 green lights lit up. Does this mean I need a new battery or a new AC Adapter? Thank you!!
Dell has a chip internal to the battery programed to shut down after a certain number of charge cycles. This means every time you plug the laptop in with the battery installed. When it reaches this determined number the battery effectively shuts down, even though technically it's still good. There have been loads of complaints on the net toward Dell over this issue. I have myself experience this. Battery good one day, powered down, went home, powered up... only to receive the deadly flashing light. Only cure is to replace battery. Several hacks trying to get around this but they're all horrible. Bad Dell - bad, bad Dell!
