Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
I use this computer often for school and I would hardly ever shut it down. I left it on one night and did not go to use it again for about a week. When I went to turn it back on, there is no power what so ever. I tested the battery with the LED lights and all five of the lights went on but I don't know what that means. The AC adapter has power but the computer doesn't have any. What should I do? Is it a problem with the battery? Thanks for the support!
The battery is OK, when you press the test button the number of LED that are on indicates how much charge is in the battery.
When you plug the adapter into the laptop there should be a LED on the laptop that indicates that it is on main power and charging.
You fault appears to indicate that you have either faulty RAM (memory) or it is not making proper electrical connection with the motherboard.
The RAM is located on the bottom of the laptop under one of the panels. Remove the panel and reseat the memory modules (take it out and insert it again a few times), the reboot your laptop.
If it still doesn't work remove it and take it to your friendly computer shop and get them to test it in another laptop, if it is NBG (no bloody good) then you will need to buy new memory.
Best of luck.
