    Did try the battery removal , then with only the AQC, as it was stated on previous troubleshooting, but still does not work.



    Thern try agasin with only the Battery and still does not work.



    Note that I do get the fan running on the Battery and/or AC, but that is the only thing and then after approx 10 sec, it shuts completely down. The screen never comes up so I cannot see any fault code. Tried a remote screen adn no view either.

Battery may be bad on the laptop. Try removing the battery and powering on the computer with only the AC power.

(Usually you can flip them over and there's a locking "slide" that you have to hold over while you remove the battery. )

If it still refuses to power it on, try to note what it says on the screen (use a digital camera to snap a few photos if necessary) and post back. It seems likely that it's the battery, however.

Hope that helps.

Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron 1505. Recently, it would not start at all. When I press the power button, the 3 light would light up for a few seconds then all shuts down. Is it that the motherboard is gone or...


Hello, Akash.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

Hi frase809,

The easiest way to fix this problem is to perform a power drain. Please follow the instructions below.

2. Unplug the AC adapter from the power outlet.

3. Remove the battery from the unit.

4. Now, press and hold down the power button for about 15-20 seconds.

Hi there.
Try cleaning the system memory and slots with a soft dry clean painbrush and re-seating it.
Also make sure the air vents and fan area is free of dust.

Dell Inspiron6400/E1505 restarts automatically after shut off


The problem of your laptop is that once it has been attacked by a virus. In that very case that virus may be removed but the damage it has made to your OS cannot be restored unless you format your laptop with Windows XP/Vista.
Or next best reason may be problem with your laptop RAM.
You should quickly consult a good hardware engineer for sough ting your problem out. Bye

Blank screen when powered on.


Do you have any CD’s that came with your laptop? If so, look for one that has “Diagnostics and utilities” listed under the “Contents”. To boot from that CD disk, power on your laptop and tap the <F12> key to bring you to the “One time boot menu”. Insert the CD and then select CD/DVD drive and hit <Enter> key. You can also boot from the Windows reinstallation disk. If the computer boots from either CD, then your Operating System is corrupted and needs to be reloaded.
