    Does the fan on the cpu function? Can the hdd be heard running? Does the CD/DVD have activity lights on it ? the orange standby light on the screen does not go to solid green and there is no display ? if yes to all these questions.. then the motherboard has blown, if no come back for more help.

Take out the battery and use the AC.
if that power up the laptop. then the battery is draining the power source. if not, the laptop power citcuit need to be check out, which I think should be done a repair shop.

What type CMOS battery will fit a 1W766 motherboard


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.dell.com/support/troubleshooting/us/en/ussoho1/Product/inspiron-8600

You have to order the battery from a dell service center.

It look like this:

Here is the other type:

Changing battery motherboard


Gciappa,

Click on Coin-Cell Battery in the right hand list.

1) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

2) Suggest lay a soft static free cloth on the table you're working on. Helps prevent scratching the table, and laptop.
Turn the laptop over, Battery Compartment facing away from you.

3) Remove the Memory Compartment Cover,

(Number 2 - memory module/coin-cell battery compartment )

The RTC Battery is that small plastic 'bag', that has a Red and White wire coming out of it, and ending in a small white plug connector.

(Real Time Clock Battery. Term coined now for CMOS Battery )

Replace battery, close cover, reinstall main battery, and AC adapter.

Hi my dell inspiron 1520 not starting when power button is switched on..the power light blinks and goes off..and the system doesnt start. I had shown the laptop ito dell service center and they have...


Hello.

The most common reasons 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 no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

But, if you paid for the Dell service, Dell needs to fix the problem. Sounds like they replaced the motherboard with another faulty one.

Hope this helps.

Will Not charge with brand new a/ power cord it will at times power on if moved the right way but quickly powers off if moved the port inside looks to be fine But I hear there is a pin type thing inside...


The problem is with the AC adapter itself and is a very common problem with Dell AC adapters. My suggestion would be to get an aftermarket AC adapter that can be purchased on eBay as the Dell adapter is around 100.00. You can pick up an aftermarket one on eBay for around 20.00. The problem is a resistor inside the AC adapter that senses when a Dell branded adapter is inserted. What happens is that the resistor will get damaged and since it doesn't recognize the charger as a Dell branded one anymore it won't charge. However it will still run the laptop as long as it's connected. A lot of aftermarket AC adapters bypass this function and work perfectly fine.

My dell inspiron 1520 does not work at all, power


no this is not a defect this would indicate that the power supply has failed on your pc.. look at the back of the unit if the power supply light is amber in color or blinking thne there is your issue.

Dell XPS 1530 wont power on at all..


Troubleshooting is pretty simple.
  1. Try a different Dell 90W or larger D/E-Series AC adapter and see if the system gets power. If no known good AC adapter is available, then check output voltage of AC adapter (Should be about 19VDC or so) If you can't do either, then the AC adapter is still the cheapest item to replace for a no power issue.
  2. If system will not power on with a known good AC adapter or new one, then the motherboard is the likely failure point. Roughly $150 on Ebay
