Question about Dell Inspiron 5160 Notebook
I can power up the laptop with or without the power cord and i hear all the fans come on and under a bright light i can see where the Windows introduction is on the screen and where it prompts me for the password. Someone told me to take out the RAM chips and put them back in and reboot the laptop. Did that, now it will not stay on with battery power or AC power cord.
It seems to me the LCD cable is either not properly unplugged or LCD ha gone bad.
Connect external monitor to the laptop and check if you have the Video on the external monior. If everything looks fine on external monitor then you can get the LCD replaced.
In case system does not power up and there are no indications of power.
Here are the steps:
Connect only the AC Adapter and take the battery out.
Check if you have a green led lit on the AC Adapter.
If AC Adapter does not has a green led please replace it with a known good AC Adapter.
If the AC Adapter has a green led but still no power it can be the system board which has gone bad.
