I got locked out

Everytime I try to turn on my laptop, the second keyboard status light (the lock with a capital A in it) starts blinking a few times then it shuts off.

    straight from dell's website:



















    Dell Solution Network: Step-by-Step Troubleshooting Wizard

















    Dell™ Notebook Computer Locks Up During or After the Boot Sequence

















    STEP: Run the PSA Diagnostics and Obtain the PSA Error Code




    Additional Information

    To run the PSA diagnostics and obtain the PSA error code, perform the following steps:


    1. Shutdown the computer.


    2. Press and hold the key, then press and release the power button.
      Release the key when the lock lights above the keyboard begin to flash or Diagnostic boot selected is displayed in the upper right corner of the screen.


    3. Release the key.


      • The PSA diagnostics sequence begins.

      • After approximately 2 minutes the system produces a number of alert tones.

      • After the alert tones, the system produces either a series of low beeps or error codes.






      Note:




      PSA diagnostics will prompt for input during some tests. The
      resulting error message does not necessarily indicate hardware failure.


      For example, input is required during the color bar test. Failure to
      input a response will eventually result in a timeout error: 1000-0333 Graphics test timed out waiting for keyboard response. This does not indicate a graphics failure has occurred.




    4. Note the sequence of beeps or error codes.

Caps are on all the time


Press the
"caps lock" key once to take it off capital letters. If that doesn't work, get an external keyboard and plug it in and try it. That should do it.

My led indicators for caps lock num lock etc not workinh in my lenovo G570 laptop


Hi, If you are using a keyboard that is wireless im sure you just have to change the battery on the keyboard.
However if the keyboard is connected to your CPU, then depending on your keyboard model, you may have to turn F LOCK (F Lock Light on) to access system key commands if they are labeled on the front of the keys, such as num lock , scroll lock and print screen.When you click on the Flock, the lights are either supoosed to click on or off.
view the keyboard status lights by using the On Screen Display (OSD) option, Ensure you download the software ,
from your start menu do a search for your keyboard, on th key tabs setting,
its important to make sure that the correct model number is entered,
double click on the light you wish to change, in the Reassign a Key wizard,
clear the Displays (key name) status on the screen check box to disable the on-screen display, or select it so that a check mark is in the box to enable it, and then click Finish.
HOPE THIS HELPS.

Dell inspiron 2200 laptop - what are the 4 lights on top right of keyboard for? the first one is constantly blinking and the others are never lit up


Hi those are your keyboard and status lights

Looking at your laptop from the front the first light on your Right hand side is your scroll lock light and is only on when you press the scroll lock button (the symbol shows a lock with a little down arrow)

The light to the left hand side of that light is your caps lock light and again only turns on when you press the caps lock key (The symbol shows a lock with a A in it)

The light to the left hand side of that is your numeric keypad light (Symbol has a lock with a 9 in it), this comes on when you press the num lock key on your keybaord

Finally the last key is your hard drive light (like a cylinder), this will be flashing most of the time as you use your PC as it is constantly reading and writing data

Regards
Shauqat

My laptop will not turn on


Try another AC Adapter with the battery taken out of the laptop. If the light still blinks then that means the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

WHENEVER YOU ARE STARTING YOUR LAPTOP LET IT BE THROUGH WITH WHATEVER IS DOING BEFORE YOU INTERFERE IN THE LOADING BECAUSE NORMALLY TURNING CAP LOCK ON WHEN STARTING OF A SYSTEM SIMPLY MEANS THE MOTHERBOARD IS OK AND YOU TRYING TO OFF THE CAPLOCK IT MIGHT NOT RESPOND TO YOUR PRESSING UNTIL IT FINISH INITIALIZING THEN BEFORE YOU CAN CORRECT ANY THING AND THE BEST SOLUTION FOR IT IF YOU KNOW IS A PROBLEM THAT IS FIGHTING YOUR SYSTEM I F THAT PERSIST THEN RELOAD YOUR SYSTEM BY REFORMATTING IT AND AFTER THAT IF OFFING THE CAPLOCK SIMPLY MEAN ON THEN THE KEYBOARD IS MALFUNCTIONING OR BEFORE REFORMATTING IT TRY USING AN EXTERNAL KEYBOARD THAT YOU WILL ATTACHED TO THE SYSTEM AT THE BACK WHERE WE HAVE THE INPUT AND OUTPUT DEVICE PORT THEN TRY STARTING IT IF THE SAME IMPLIES ON THAT BEFORE YOU GO ON FORMATTING THE SYSTEM OK.

The light thats a lock with the letter a starts blinking and it wont boot up. how do i fix this


The blinking light is just a status for the caps light. If the unit does not power on or boot , you may have
A) a low or bad battery, Take the battery out and try to power up just by plugging the unit into the outlet.

B) If that does not work, You may have a loose DC connector on the system board. Unplug the plug from the outlet, then slightly wiggle the connector at the back of the laptopwhere the adapter plugs in. If it moves , the connector is loose on the MLB.


The blue lights located above the keyboard indicate the following:
about27.jpg
Turns on when the numeric keypad is enabled.
about28.jpg
Turns on when the uppercase letter (caps lock) function is enabled.
about29.jpg
Turns on when the scroll lock function is enabled.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
