    Come down and explain better. What is flashing orange and white, bower button or screen? Your laptop has also beep codes, do you hear any beeps when you start? What color is the screen when you try to turn it on?

    If I understand your question correctly, then its the third LED status indicator light, which is flashing red and white(first one is the light for power, and the second one is light for disk usage. third one is light for battery). This happens, when your bettery pack is not recognized by the laptop. In my case, shutting down the system, removing and cleaning battery contacts, and replacing the battery pack solved the problem. (Note that when your computer doesn't recognize battery pack, it will still be able to run on battery, but will not be able to charge the battery.
