Battery indicator keeps blinking Orange

My Dell Lattitude E6510 Battery indicator suddenly started blinking orange when the battery indicator on the Taskbar shows 100% fully charged. Once I unplug the AC adapter the PC goes off. Prior to this sudden development the battery lasts for 3-4 hours on heavy usage when fully charged. Please can some assist me. Thanks

The blinking amber light means the battery is not receiving a charge and is at less then 10%. Try a reset on the system first. Disconnect the battery and unplug the adapter. Now press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then reconnect everything and try again. Also restart the system and at the Dell splash screen start tapping F12. Run system diagnostics and pay special attention to battery health and the adapter results. You can also at the Dell splash screen start tapping F2 and check the adapter and battery in the BIOS in addition to diagnostics.
