If there is no other symptom present -- such as failure to power up at all, or failure to recognize the AC adapter, then it's the battery that's at fault and the solution is to replace the battery. Yes, it is that simple.
I have an Alienware M17X R2 with this same error. I replaced the battery and the battery is now fully charged. But the boot still indicates a permanent error. How do I clear the error?
The sad thing is I have TWO Dell Inspiron 15R laptops so I have a comparison.
ONE equals a fluke, TWO is a pattern!
I guess these batteries are MADE to self destruct. Never buying a DELL computer again!!!
Yes, this is called planned obsolescence and I think Dell (like any other company) should be ashamed to use such a policy..
Nothing else to do than replace the battery... 80$. Or try to prove the obsolescence and sue the company, but good luck with that !
I experienced the same problem, just days after installing Windows 10
dell warning quickset your battery expereinced a permanent failure and needs to be replaced. The system will power down when the AC adapter is unplugged. The power indicator light is blinking orange.
I have a Dell Inspiron 15 3000 series. It is 1 yr and 8 mo old
my laptop is showing this msg and red light is blinking. " Your battery has experienced permanent failure and needs to be replaced". I have updated BIOS system but facing same problem. I am able to open my laptop when power is connected and it is shut down when power disconnected. plz suggest me the solution. Thanks.
There is no conspiricy. These batteries have a finite life, depending on how many discharge/charge cycles and how low you let the battery discharge. Unless really necessary do not allow discharging below 30% or so. A battery contains a number of cells. If one cell has a slightly lower internal resistance than the others, it will experience a higher charging current and will age faster than the rest. A single bad cell will ruin the battery.
