    Look at "Diagnostic LEDs for the XPS Notebook series (2014 to Present) > Diagnostic LED Indicators" in https://www.dell.com/support/article...n#2014_Present

    So took out battery and put battery back in..... I did not screw back the cover yet as that uses a ton of time... only screwed the battery back in... turned on laptop ... right now not plugged into charger... its on battery now... no flashing lights.


    But if i connect the charger to it... I will bet it will flash orange again. Or after another 5 minutes right now when not plugging in anything, i think those orange lights would come again.


    So what do i do now? Download that dell power plan and see if there are issues with it? I didn't want to download it earlier when it was rapidly flashing orange. Right now it isn't... no flashes... but wouldn't surprise me in few minutes it flashes again... what do i do now?

    Review the Diagnostic LED Indicators table in my last post and make video the LED flashing patterns if it happens again.

    I don't see anything in the chart that shows flashing orange light repeatedly......

    Should i connect my charger back to it to see what happens? Right now... its on battery still... but i feel the moment i connect my charger to it... it will be normal white light charging for a minute... then go back to orange flashing light again......

    So nothing like this - white LED is not flashing at all?

    "Note: The blinking patterns will consist of 2 sets of numbers. These are represented by First Group (Amber Blinks), Second Group (White Blinks).

    First Group: The Battery LED blinks in Amber up to 9 times then pauses for 1.5 seconds before running the second group.
    Second Group: The Battery LED blinks in White up to 9 times then pauses for 3 seconds before running the first group again.

    Example: No Memory detected (2, 3), The Battery LED blinks two times amber followed by a pause, then blinks three times white, pause, etc. This pattern continues until the system is powered off."

    Yes, the idea is to make it happen so we can figure out the problem.

    I just charged my ac charger again.


    When I do this, the white turns on for a second, then turns off... now its back to white light again.


    But now less than a minute... its back to flashing orange again. Its four orange lights... then white light ... and repeats it like twice.... now its flashing orange nowstop right now...

    So this is the pattern it seems. Turn on laptop while on battery... if i do nothing as in don't charge it... there seem to be no light blinking at all.


    The moment i charge my charger to it... you immediately see it white light as it should be... but its only a second then turns off immediately and immediately turns white again... and stays white as its charging... but less than a minute or thirty seconds... it would go one white light, four orange lights... white light, four orange lights, white light, four orange lights, I forgot if it does this pattern one more time or not...


    Then finally its flashing orange nonstop right now. Doesn't matter if its plugged in or not.... right now nonstop orange flashing light.

    Two things for you to do:
    Install the Dell Power Manager
    and
    Run all PC diagnostics from https://www.dell.com/support/home/en...aptop/diagnose

    If i install the dell power manager, would it show if its a bad battery in the report?


    I see the link but that has nothing to do with bios or anything right?


    Also... you dont think there is a chance that ram test I did yesterday could have caused this right?

    1. Not sure
    2. No BIOS.
    3. Don't know if it's related to RAM test.

    Do these things and tell what you learn.

    Do you think its a good idea to try to charge my powerbank to it... to see if it gets the same response? Such as it causing the orange light?


    Like could it be possible my ac charger went bad? Or it won't because the battery should not flash orange repeatedly?
