Dell Inspiron 8500 doesnt continue boot up

I was given a dell inspiron 8500, the problem was i left the adaptor plugged in and the following morning when i booted it up it wont continue to boot up and the power led turns off, battery is no longer charging and when i reattach the power cord the led indicators lights up then tried to boot up again and again it wont continue booting up and when i press the power button i hear some sort or crackling sound like there's something shorting up or loose connection,

I had the very same problem. The way I fixed the problem was only replacing the memory to slot B.

I thought it might work again on slot A after a proper boot up so I placed the memory on slot A again.Gues what, it worked liked a charm.

Is the crackling noise constant?
if so, your hard drive is lockup on the bootup. you have to get a new hard drive.
or you can try to reformat the hard drive, but I don't think that will help.

Dell inspiron 1521 laptop won't recognize a new 90 watt power


There are different types of Dell power adapters, some of them put out different amounts of power. While it is possible that the battery is faulty, it is more likely, given your error message that the adaptor is wrong. If you got it from Dell, you can call them and they will exchange it.

Battery cannot be identified Every time I boot up my Dell Inspiron 1501 I get the following message: "Warning: The Battery cannot be identified. This system will be unable to charge this battery."...


Generally this is an indication that the battery has failed. The normal life span of a PC battery is 300 to 500 recharge cycles (Roughly 12 to 18 months) so the most likely answer is buy a new battery since this one is already out of warranty

Cmos battery dead - needs to be replaced


Sounds like you need to change the CMOS battery, the time being wrong everytime you boot is a good sign but also it losing its settings in bios is also another sign
