The icons from the left: 1. Power indocator 2. Hard Disk indicator --> it is a tube icon, not battery, but means hard drive. 3. Power Source indicator 4. Bluetooth indicator
The third from left means the power source indicator. Normally it is light green. If there is battery problem (can not charge or battery overload) it flashes amber/orange. If flashes red, it indicates that the battery power is low. You need to change the battery or connect the AC adapter.

My laptop touchpad mouse is not working


Hi,

Check the F keys or the buttons on your computer with the touchpad icon. it looks like this (the one in red box) but it is found on one of the keys on your keyboard though. If you found it press Fn+the button with the touchpad icon and normally there comes an icon on the lower right side of your monitor that shows whether the touchpad is ENABLED or DISABLED.

Swithc on wireless acer 6530 please


Above the keyboard on the right there is a collection of blue lights that are always on. Next to that is a white 'satellite dish' icon, hold your finger over this icon for a few seconds once you take your finger off it should be flashing red whilst it searches for wireless networks.

I do not have sound on my computer


1.Look in the lower right corner of your screen, does the speaker icon next to the date and time have a red circle with a line through it? If so, right click the speaker icon, open volume mixer, and click the speaker icon for device to un-mute the speakers2_bing.gif.

2.If using Windows Media Player (I am sure this applies to other media players too) please check below the video which is playing and locate the volume control slide bar. There should be a Speaker Icon next to the bar, make sure the red circle with a line through it is not on this icon either. If so, click it to un-mute your media player. Also, make sure the volume within your media player is turned up in this same place.

3.Finally, if all else fails, click the windows bubble (start menu) and right click on "Computer" or "My Computer" and click "Manage". Select "Device Manager" from the list on the left, and scroll down to "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers2_bing.gif". Expand that list, if you have any errors (Yellow Triangles, Red X's) there, you will need to reinstall drivers which can be obtained from the manufacturer's website.

Flashing battery icon


The machine is telling you the battery is not charging or is otherwise no good.

The battery for this unit is subject to a recall, if it has part #OU091 or W1435. This recall started in October 08. Go to:

http://www.dellbatteryprogram.com/

for more info.

Alternatively, bring your power supply to a Radio Shack, and make sure it is putting out the requisite 19V DC power.

I don't no if wireless is on the light ust keeps flashing


there are many ways to check to see if the wireless adaptors are on in your laptop.

one sign us usually a button or a light with a icon that looks like an antenna with lines coming off it.

second is by looking at the bottom of the task bar by the clock and seeing a single computer screen type icon with red lines coming off it. if that same icon has a red X on it, your wireless might be off or disconnected.

Flashing icon at the top right of my Dell Inspiron 6400


The first thing I would try is to get a new power adaptor. You can find a OEM on ebay probably for about $20. Just type in your model number on the search section on ebays homepage.

Flashing battery icon


Battery is shot, time for a replacement. Keep in mind that a Dell battery can aquire a dead short, this won't hurt the system, but it can keep the machine from starting up. If you find that your machine won't start up try pulling the battery.
