Inspiron 5759 Power/HDD light never on

According to my research the light on the front of my Inspiron 5759 should behave thusly: 

Power and Battery Status Light

1White light – Power adapter is connected and the battery is fully charged.
2Solid yellow light – Battery charge is low or critical.
3Blinking yellow light – The battery charge is critical.

 

My power adapter is connected and the battery shows 100%, plugged in, not charging, but the light is not on. 

If I power down the laptop, then turn it back on, the light comes on for a while, but then goes blank after a few minutes. 

How do I check to see if this is a problem with the light, the battery, or the adapter? (Gotta be one or the other, right?)

Thanks, 

Michael R.
