Dell Inspirion 1000 power short circuit

Dell Inspirion 1000-loses power completely and shuts down when moving the screen slightly after the computer is running. Has to be restarted. The power light stays on, but there is no power to the computer itself.

    This a Dell Inspirion 1000 running XP. Unfortunately your fix did not work. I have seen posts on this same problem on the Dell users forum. It appears to be a cable problem from the board to the screen; why that would keep the computer from starting up, not sure, but that seems to be the cause.

  • There appears to be a shortage in one of your lines to you computer. But, before you replace anything, try these methods.

  • Shut down the computer.

  • Remove any CDs, DVDs or external storage devices (like USB keys or external hard drives) from the computer, if any are present, then press the power button to turn the computer on.

  • Press and hold the <F8> key as your computer starts. You need to press <F8> before the Windows logo appears.

  • If the Windows logo appears, and the system still fails to boot to Windows, shut down the computer and try again.

  • From the Advanced Boot Options menu, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair Your Computer, then press <ENTER>.

  • Click to select your language, and then click NEXT.

  • Log in as a user with administrative rights, and click OK.

  • From the Choose a recovery tool menu, click Startup Repair .
  • Once completed, click FINISH.
  • Click RESTART.

If I can be of further assistance, please let me know

And, remember; always include the type of Operating System and the type of computer you own, when you submit your questions. It simply makes for much faster solutions.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Where do I turn off my laptop


Power button is top left corner of keyboard above the "Esc" key.
If you are trying to shutdown from Windows 8, follow these steps:

1. Mouse over the little gadget in the lower right corner of the screen. (You can also move your mouse cursor to the upper left corner; same result. Or, you can press Windows-C on your keyboard.)
2. In the slide-out menu (known as the Charms Bar) that appears, click Settings.
3. Click the Power button, and then click your desired action: Sleep, Shut down, or Update and restart.

My dell inspiron 1000 powers up for a short time then shuts down. Even when windows starts up it shuts down.How do I fix this problem.


Hi dabrow72

Sounds like an overheating issue but there are other possible causes. Make sure the fans are free from dust and debris. A can of compressed air usually does the trick but sometimes opening the laptop to manually clear the fans is required. Laptops/computers cut off by default if the cpu becomes too hot. If your fans are not spinning then it's surprising how quickly this happens. A sure sign of it being clogged fans would be having to wait a short period before the power will turn back on. You may well notice a strange noise from the fan as it trys to spin or maybe it won't be turning at all.

Does this help?

Dell inspirion 1000 laptop computer will not allow me to work in safe mode keeps shutting down after booting up


Hi,

It seems there is a heat related issue on your laptop. I would suggest to run first the diagnostic test, to check for hardware problem.

Try removing any external devices first (Ex. USB devices) then run some diagnostic test:

1. Turn on computer
2. Tap F12 continuously on the Dell logo screen
3. Select Diagnostics
4. Follow on screen instructions
4. Wait for the test results (approximately 10-15min.)

If all test passed no problems have been found, it means there is no problem with hardware/computer. The problem is now pointing out to be software problem. Re-installing windows will fix the problem. Hope this helps

I would suggest testing your laptop with another adapter, first. Then you'll know whether to replace the adapter, which is priced around $50.
