Vostro 1015 flashing amber battery light

Dell Vostro 1015, well out of warranty. Plug it in and get an immediate flash code on the battery light on the front of the laptop. Not even getting to POST. Alternating 1 blue and 4 amber quick flashes, followed by various blue flash patterns ( which I know makes no sense but I am failing to find a pattern ). Unable to find any useful docs, can anyone help?

Hi Escatdell,

Thank you for reaching out to Dell Community Forum.

Can you check if you can boot into Dell diagnostics <F12> and capture any error codes or messages?

Also,weI would suggest you to drain the residual power from the laptop:

* Disconnect any external peripherals (flash drives, printers, external hard drives) from the computer.

* Remove the adapter and then the battery.

* Press and hold the power button for 10-15 seconds.

* After draining the residual power, try reseating the memory and see if the system is able to boot.

Please click my DELL-username and send me a Private Message with the Dell Service Tag number and your email address.
