Re: not starting

I am too having the same problem, and would have to agree it is something to do with the battery, my solution has been to remove the battery, unplug the AC and remove the cmos battery and let it sit for a minute or two to clear everything out and try starting it with on the AC, it may take a few times but I have found that it starts. Also found if you just leave it as it is and remove the battery it will start but in one case it took over a week of trying, my first suggestion works for me more often and I figure reseting my clock is a small price to pay for using my laptop. I would also suggest not using standby or hibernation mode as this has resulted in me not being able to start my laptop. Now unless I have too I just leave it plugged in and running all the time, the battery still holds some charge but I figure once she dies then it time to upgrade.

Re: not starting

My M2353 has a problem with the DC input/power jack. I found this out only after buying a new AC adapter, thinking that was the problem. Unfortunately $60 later I know that it isn't the adapter. Two things. First I called emachines only to find out that they will not replace just the power jack. They said I have to have a whole new motherboard put in to the tune of $250. Second, if anyone is interested in buying what is now my EXTRA AC adapter, just let me know.

Re: not starting

Sounds like the battery died. This may have happened because the AC Adapter was not properly charging the battery. To see if a faulty AC adapter is the cause, check the following: 1) Is the indicator light on the AC adapter on? Most AC Adaptors have one. 2) Is the indicator light on the laptop on notifying that the battery is charging while plugged into the AC adapter? Try to borrow an AC Adapter from some one who has the same model laptop that you have. It is VERY IMPORTANT to get an AC Adapter with the same voltage and amperage ratings as your current AC Adapter. If not, yo urun the risk of damaging the electronics. If you do not have a spare, there are sever web sites that sell AC Adapters. These appear to be the requirements of the AC Adapter. Double check these with what appears on the AC Adapter. Input: 110-240V 50/60Hz Auto-Detect International Compatible Output: 19V - 20V DC, up to 90W max If you are unable to find what you are looking for on the sites above, you can readily find what you want on ebay as well.

My dell mini inspiron doesn't work when i turn it on; it starts but then nothing, it is obvious that it is on but it is only a black display on the monitor. What could be the problem?


You can switch it OFF and remove the battery.
Wait for 5mins, Connect the battery again, Also connect the Power Cable to the Laptop.
Try to switch it ON, It should work.

Acer extensa will not boot to windows

What is happening when you press the power Button? Do you see any ligths, Any HDD moves? IF DOES.

TURN OFF by pressing and holding your finger on power button.
wait 60 sec. turn on and repeatedly press several times at F8 button.
If page opens on black and white, Use SAFE MODE.
wait til all line down. Then you will see windows opening in safe mode.
WHat ever you install last, remove, scan your computer for virus,spyware. when its finished, check your computer if need defragmentation. by Accessories>System Tools> Defragment.
If message comes such as windows will do this at schedule time or so.
Just turn off your computer using shotdown option (NOT BROWN BUTTON ON START) go to next arrow.
then turn on again see if windows comes back.

Laptop doesnt boot only power ligth comes out when press on buttom a ligth comes out but nothing on the screen i dont hear the fan keep going.

Maybe there are some problem in your start button (the button wire connect to mainboard is Loosening.

Please press the start button for about 3-4 seconds then see it would start. Always it may solve the problem, this happend to my inspiron 6400 too, after used for years the start button failure. It shows only power lamp lights green but the other light cant light red.

If no, maybe your must change a power supply, as the lower volt current cant start all the device.

Not starting

Just to sum it up, are we talking about the Dell Inspiron 1750 or a Dell Inspiron 6000? Seeing two different things here. With the regards to the ac adapter, How "Warm"are we talking about here. 1 to 10. "1" 100 below 0 or "10" Nuclear Reactor Hot? Any adapters can get warm to the touch without overheating and frying. Was there a blackout or power outages in your area or T-Storm on the day you left. Take off the battery from the laptop. Check the battery lights. Do they flash or do they all light up when you press the button. With the laptop not working, lets hope the battery didnt fry the mainboard. Have you try to fire it up again after the adapter has a chance to cool down. By now, it should be fine, if you haven't use it.

Let me know
