RE: Battery has experienced permanent failure

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?

Try pulling the battery and holding power button for >30 seconds.

You mean removing the battery and press the power button for 30 seconds?

RE: Battery has experienced permanent failure

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

RE: Battery has experienced permanent failure

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.
