Your battery may be dying, or your battery might not be receiving power properly from your power adapter. You might need to consider replacing your battery if the problem continues. You can replace your battery using the following guide: Dell Inspiron N5050 Battery Replacement

I would replace the battery myself.

There is probably a battery test available in the bios when it first boots which should give some indication of the health of the battery.
