    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.

Charging light is flashing


There are two possible causes for this issue:
1) Your dell 9400 charger is malfunction
2) Your laptop dc power jack is loose or dead

Possible troubleshooting step:
1) Borrow a compatible dell charger to plug in your laptop, if it works without any issue, it means your dell inspiron 9400 adapter need to be replaced.

2) If the compatible dell 9400 charger won't work normally, the problem may lie in your dc power jack.

Hope this will help.

The charger is not charging the battery. It could be the battery is dead or the laptop motherboard has a problem that wont allow it charge the battery OR it is a DELL and you are not using a DELL factory charger

My dell inspiron mini 10 won't boot.There is just a flash of white light then a flash of amber light when I press the power button. That's it, nothing else.


Remove the main battery and try again, also! the power adapter charger should be checked for correct voltage, if okay! pull one stick of ram and test, and the second piece not forgetting to put the first one back and power up, if all this fails you will need to get it assessed.

Dell 1525 won't run on ac but will on generic battery


Dell systems will not charge the battery without a Dell Branded AC adapter connected to the system (The BIOS looks for the adapter ID and disables the battery charger if not ID'd)
It appears, that since the system will not power on with either AC adapter, that there is a problem with the power connection of the system. You can replace the power board

if that fails to resolve next is the motherboard

I just bought a replacement 9 cell battery and a 90 watt power adapter for my Dell E1505. With the new battery and power adapter my battery indicator light keeps flashing green and the battery doesn't...


If a new DELL ac adapter (3rd party Adapters are not recognized and the charging circuit is disabled) and a new battery doesn't resolve then the charging circuit on the motherboard is bad

My dell inspiron600m does not even come on at


It sounds like the power adapter/charger has gone bad. If the adapter/charger is bad, then 2 things will happen.
1. The battery will not be charged.
2. the system will not be operable from the adapter.

If your adapter is not able to charge the battery or operate the device, then the battery is likely dead, which means youd have no power from the battery, and youd have no power from the adapter, and no power from the battery or adapter means it wont come on. I suggest taking that machine to a shop and having the adapter checked, as well as trying a new adapter.

Inspiron 6000 wont start


I had this problem, and I took out the RAM memory cards and put them back in again, and then the computer booted up fine.

Dell inspiron b130


check if the ac adapter or charger has a green light on it. if not, replace the charger. for dell chargers, it should have a green light to indicate that the charger is getting power from the wall outlet. if the ac adapter is good, then you might need to replace the mother board as the ac port is integrated.

hope this resolves your problem.
