Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook

1 Answer

Dell Inspiron 5150 no power, no lights

Dell Inspiron 5140 (3.5 yrs old) does not try to boot. The power adapters (I have two - one office, one home) have a green light but no lights light up on the computer when I plug the adapter in. The battery appears dead as well. Any thoughts?

    Thanks for the input. I agree with the diagonosis. If the board is bad, it is time to put it to rest and move on to a new model. I do not have another battery. Do you know how I could find out which terminals are what on the battery. I was thinking of carefully connecting the charger directly to the batery for an hour to give it some juice. I would use an extension chord in order to get some distance in case things go wrong and fire works result. Thanks again.

It could be that the ports where you plug in the charger is damaged. if you have an identical or a known good battery that is charged, try to install that and check if it works. you need a motherboard replacement if the system works with a charged battery.

Dell Inspiron 5160. When plugged in then power light lights up (before hitting the power button like my 5150) and the battery light is amber. The 5160 will not do anything - not power on at all.


Hello.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

Rapid flashing battery light and battery apparently not charging- is battery dead or is charging circuit u/s?


Hello!

Tricky issue, try removing the batt, power it up using ac power, when booting try going to the BIOS page, try looking for the A/C adapter type. if ot shows there, then your good with your ac adapter, now try hooking the battery then check again in BIOS your battery status, is if its saying other than charging, then possibly its a battery issue, most batteries are good for 1-2 yrs, more than that batt hold will degrade. time to replace your battery...

Hope it help!

Flashing cursor on inspiron 5150


I assume the power LED is on when you boot up the laptop and the power adapter is OK.
If I understand you, the RAM module is in memory slot A and not in slot B. If not the RAM module needs to be in slot A.
When a laptop doesn't the RAM module may only needs re-seating or the RAM module is faulty.
Re-seat the RAM module, and if this then take the RAM module and get it tested at your friendly computer shop.
