Power supply/Battery charging warning light

I have an Inspiron 9400 and things appear to be working well.  However, I just noticed the battery status light which normally is steady green when on ac power is blinking 4 times orange and one green, pauses and then starts over.  I don't recall seeing that before.  The manual talks about shutdown warning when you are on battery supply, but this is when it is on ac power.  It would appear to be a warning, but I can't find any reference.  This occurs regardless of whether the computer is on or off.

Re: Power supply/Battery charging warning light

One or more of the battery cells has failed - it will soon be time for a replacement battery.
