Battery light is blinking orange.


Hi I am running on a Inspiron 1150 laptop and all of the sudden the battery light began blinking orange.

I shut down and restarted my computer and it is still doing it.

When I unplug the power cable its fine though.

Will I have to buy a new battery? Is it fried?

Any help would be wonderful. Thanks.

My System
Blinking amber battery light on Dells indicates "failing or failed battery". It may still hold a charge, but not nearly as long as it used to. Time to replace the battery.

Well, last night I took out my battery and then put it back in and now its not blinking orange, but just in case I'll start saving. I hate being a poor college student.


Thanks so much for the help.
