So I have a dell inspiron 1720 laptop and recently the battery indicator light turned amber and the computer kept telling me to get a new battery. So I broke down and got a new battery. The battery works fine but the battery led keeps flashing blue every 10 seconds or so. I let the battery run down to 9%ish until the computer shut itself down. Then I plugged it in and let it recharge. I thought this would solve the problem but it didn't. Its not a big deal but its getting kind of annoying and I want to fix it. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Do you know if the power adapter is working properly, meaning putting out the proper DC voltage?

Edit to correct my dyslexic mistake.

How did you determine that the adapter is working properly, did you use a meter to read the DC voltage?

Ive been using this adapter for about 5 years now and i even bought a replacement and it does the same thing. Since im getting the same result on both adapters im assuming its something else. The battery says its at 100% charge so i dont know what to do.
