Question about Dell Inspiron 2650 Notebook

1 Answer

Keyboard shortcut Hi, is there any way to turn on a Dell laptop using an attached adaptive keyboard? The power button is hard to access but an IntelliKeys keyboard has been attached to the laptop. Can the laptop be turned on using a key on the IntelliKeys keyboard? Thanks!

Use the following keys on the keyboard in a combination..

CLTR + ALT + DELETE

But make sure the computer is not powered off.. it should be in the standby or hibernating mode...

Dell latitude d800 not switching on ?


I may have addressed this question earlier. If your Dell shows absolutely no sign of life... no LEDs, no nothing and you know for certain the battery and/or power adapter is good then...

If you have access to a docking station (ANY Dell dock that will mate with the bottom connector on your D800), put the D800 in the dock and use the power button on the docking station.

If the laptop powers up, you may have a simply problem with the laptop "Press to turn on" button.

ABOVE THE LAPTOP KEYBOARD...
Use a small flat screwdriver blade to remove the Center Control Cover (just beneath the display/cover hinge and above the F1-F12 keys). Locate the cover's flat ribbon cable connector above the Page Up key. Pull off and carefully reinstall. Try the power button now. If it works, put everything back together. Otherwise seek profession help.

Dell inspiron 1520 won't turn on.


Remove the battery from its compartment on the side of your Dell Inspiron laptop computer.


Remove the power adapter from its plug on the side of the Dell Inspiron (if your laptop is currently plugged into a wall outlet).


Press down and hold the "Power" button on the laptop for one to two minutes. This will dispel the excess electrical current that is built up inside the laptop.


Put the battery back inside the compartment of your Dell Inspiron.


Plug your power adapter back into the side of the Dell Inspiron. Press "Power." Your laptop computer will now turn on.


hope this helps

My Dell D620 will not turn on. Battery is charged and AC adapter is working. When the power button is pressed nothing happens (the power on light on the laptop does not light up). Does this sound like...


I would start with the miniboard that the power button is attached to. If this is part of the keyboard then that is what you need to try first. Replacement parts should be relatively inexpensive as this is a standard business laptop used everywhere. The D series was very popular...you may even be able to use parts from a D610 or a D630. I would start looking for parts on eBay and go from there...

Let me know if you need anything else!

When you say you "tried turning it on with the battery removed", did you leave it plugged into the wall with the charging adapter at the time? Please clarify that you tried to use it while plugged in without the battery and it would not power up? When you plugged it in without the battery, was the green charging light on? Or did you get no power light at all?

With your battery in, try using a different outlet to plug into. Plug it into another outlet and when the green charging light comes on press and hold your power button on your keyboard and do not release it for 30 to 45 seconds. Tell me if this boots up the pc even if just for a moment?

There are three lights on your keyboard that should come on when the laptop is plugged in and turned on. One is the power light, the other is the battery charging light and the last one is the hard drive indicator that looks like a round cylinder on the picture. Tell me when you plug it into the outlet and the battery charge light is on, does the hard drive light come on and/or flicker when you try to power up the laptop? How many lights come on when you press and hold down the power button with the cord plugged into the wall?

Dell keyboard locked up


Dear Sir,

PLzz folow this step to unlock your keyboard

Step 1 Check to be sure your "Number Lock" or "Function Lock" keys aren't lit. These can lock out certain parts of your keyboard. If either of these is lit, press them to unlock the locked portion of your keyboard. These can be found at the top right on a laptop and between the number pad and main keys on a desktop keyboard.
  • Step 2 Save all open programs using your mouse. Use your mouse to restart your computer. This will only work if your computer isn't frozen. If your mouse doesn't move, press the power button on your Dell until the computer turns off. Press it again to restart. If the issue was lack of memory or a locked program, this will unlock your keyboard. Continue to Step 3 if the keyboard is still locked.
  • Step 3 Shut down your computer using your mouse or power button. Don't restart. Unplug your Dell.
  • Step 4 Remove the battery if you're using a laptop by turning the laptop over and sliding the battery release latch. Slide the battery out and replace after one minute.
    For desktops, disconnect the keyboard from the desktop. Reconnect after one or two minutes.
  • Step 5 Reconnect the power adapter or AC cord. Start your computer.
  • Step 6 If your keyboard is still locked on a Dell desktop, disconnect the keyboard. Restart your computer and reconnect the keyboard after the system boots. Allow your operating system to recognize and reinstall the keyboard

    DELL Precision M65- cannot turn on. Even take off batt then turn ON, or using adaptor without battery still cannot turn ON. The LED light is ON but no visual/screen. Please help. Many thanks...


    Hi,
    Verify the AC power adapter displays a solid green or blue light. Older Latitude™ C Series laptop computer AC adapters may not have a light.
    Run the diagnostics on the system as follows , connect both the battery and the Ac adapter before running the diagnostics

    1. Ensure the system is powered off.
    2. Remove all external peripherals.
    3. Press and hold the <Fn> key on the keyboard.
    4. Continue to hold the <Fn> key while pressing the power button.
    5. Release both buttons.
    6. Note which lock LEDs are lit (lock LEDS are next to the power button)
    And proceed with the troubleshooting steps listed below

    Laptop Won't startup Vostro 1500


    See if you can run the Pre-boot System Assessment (PSA) diagnostics. To run the PSA+ Diagnostics on this system, perform one of the following actions:

    1) Hold down the <Fn> key while pressing the power button.

    2) Turn on the system, press <F12> at the initial Dell™ logo screen, and select “Diagnostics” from the boot menu.

    3) Disconnect the AC power and remove the battery. While holding down the power button, insert the AC connector into the back of the system. The system then starts and the message “Diagnostic boot selected” displays. The system then launches the PSA+ Diagnostics.

    According to Dell specs, there is no error code listed that you described, (Flashing Caps LED). Also try reseating the memory modules, (you might want to try this first).
