Here is a link to your Dell inspiration laptop.
Below is a PDF version of your owners manual to help you solve your problem.http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/syst...en/i1100-om.pdf
I found this information regarding your battery status.
CHECK THE BATTERY STATUS LIGHT — If the battery status light flashes
orange or is a steady orange, the battery charge is low or depleted. Connect the
computer to an electrical outlet.
If the battery status light flashes green and orange, the battery is too hot to charge.
Turn off the computer (see page 40), disconnect the computer from the electrical
outlet, and then let the battery and computer cool to room temperature.
If the battery status light rapidly flashes orange, the battery may be defective.
This link below is a service manual for your laptop, it shows exploded views of all of its components.http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/syst...en/sm/index.htm
Hope this information helps you, at the least you might be looking at a replacement with a new battery.
