Question about Dell Inspiron 1000 Notebook

1 Answer

Dell Inspiron 1000 will not boot up.

When I push the "ON" button, the machine starts to boot up, fan and processor can be heard, no screen. Then it shuts down. I then cannot push the On button again,without undocking the battery, and waiting 10-15 seconds.
Any ideas??

    I replaced the motherboard, the hard drive, the battery, and the battery charger. The computer turns on for about 30 seconds, but no screen ever appears. The three lights continue to blink in sync with one another for the 30 seconds it remains on. Any ideas?

Greetings,

The symptoms you described are normally common motherboard failure signs.

Try removing the ram and hard drive from the computer and then try booting the computer.

Is there a quick fix to replacing the processor fan on a Dell Inspron 1000


Not a quick fix, but you can buy a cooling base unit for it which plugs into one of your usb ports which supplies power for the built in fan.

Dell Inspron 1000 processor fan stopped working. Is there an easy fix ???


The only easy fix would be to purchase a laptop tray that includes fans like those sold at OfficeMax and it would save you the trouble of having to open the laptop and maybe keep it cool enough to work for a while without it shutting down.

Dell Vostro 1000 will not boot.


It maybe the power adaptor is loose on the motherboard. Push the cord in and rotate it and continuously push the power button if it starts that is your problrm. You can temporarily fix it with tape once you discover where the cord wants to be or you can use a clamp.

Have you hooked it up to an external monitor? If you can see windows booting up on the external monitor then u may have a bad lcd screen or inverter or video card? Still lots of questions to ask.
