Dell Inspiron 6000 powers up, caps lock flashes 9 times, then laptop shut down. Why???

Unplug power cord from laptop, remove battery from laptop. Open memory access panel on the bottom of the laptop. Remove memory module(s) (SO-DIMM). Plug power cord back into laptop. Turn laptop on (with the memory removed), the caps lock and scroll lock LEDs light, then the laptop shuts itself off. Unplug power cord from the laptop. Reinstall the memory modules. Make sure they are seated correctly. Put the battery back in, plug the laptop back in, and power on. Laptop should power on and boot up properly.
May need to hold the power button down to get it to power on properly.

My acer notebook is locked form bios ,may be ask for root password,i m not able to do anything,how can i break the bios password??

Acer laptop has a special bios sequence that can be so tricky and very confusing but I can
show how to do it in few minutes. These steps are simple and picture illustrated.
You can handle or solve bios password problems by either flashing the bios but this can
be done by a professional which is very risky and can damage the laptop,
Or by replacing certain security chip or resetting the one in the board, this will be costly
and also risky.
Or by contracting the manufacturers. Well, good luck!
Above all am going to show you the simplest way to bypass it. The truth is that the bios
password will prevent you from setting the boot order because the default boot order is
either ide or USB devices.
Don't worry, follow these steps:
1. Switch the laptop, and remove the hard disk from the back of the laptop.
2. You need external USB mass storage drive that you will use to connect it to
another computer.
3. You also need third party software like epm partition magic (click here to
download it). Install this software in the other computer before you plug in the
USB mass storage device.
4. then open the software select on the hdd, then press delete and after that click
apply, the system may require to boot(allow it to do so). When this is done, if
open the epm again, your hdd will show in the window (UNALLOCATED). Don
creates partition, just disconnect the hdd and insert it back to your Acer laptop.
5. Put your bootable cd like window xp or vista. Power on the laptop, it will
automatically enter to boot setup.
6. After the setup and you still want remove the password, you will use bios debug
software. Good luck.

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).
