Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
My Inspiron just crashed suddenly while I was playing a game... When it crashed, the screen went black but several lights were on. The computer stayed on but the hard drive light was flashing and along with the flash, there was a click type sound. I believe my num, caps, and scroll lock may have been lit but I can't remember.
I tried to manually shut down the computer by holding the power button but it did not work. I then proceded to remove the battery and the charger. Once I put the battery back in along with the charger, I tried to turn the computer back on, but it did not. The computer does not even show that it is charging.
If it helps, this computer was purchased around 2004-05.
If you have some power on the computer, then it could be possible that the LCD panel or video card is dead. To identify the issue, connect it to a external monitor and then start the computer. Press 'Fn' and 'F8' to toggle the display. If the display is seen on the monitor, then replace the LCD panel. If not, the MoBo will ahve to be replaced.
I work in DELL tech support and if the system is under warranty call tech support for a replacement. If you wnat to get the LCD/Mobo replaced then call 800-288-4410 (OWR-out of warranty repair) department.
