Been there, done that....
1) If your battery has a bad cell (18 months normal life) it could cause this. Take the battery out and see if the system works using just the AC power and no battery.
If it works without the battery get a new one and you are good to go.
2) HOWEVER some systems require the battery to be in place to complete the circuit, so you might have to borrow a "good" working battery from someone if my first suggestion does not work.
3) Finally, sometimes the solder connection for the power connection to the motherboard can be broken by mild abuse or stress from the power cord being pulled at an angle. These typically have three solder points and the one on the back is the most likely to fail.
Summary: If #1 and #2 don't work, get a second opinion, specifically in relation to the power connection to the mother board.

Dell Studio 1737 with Back lit keyboard but Cap Lock Doesn't Light, replaced Keyboard less than 3 months ago, light worked then and went out just recently.


I'd try a different keyboard and see if the caps light works on that - so you can confirm whether it's the keyboard, or computer.

hiya:) My opinion: If you can get someone to give you a free/cheap estimate of the cost to repair I would do it just to find out, but that computer is getting old and maybe is not worth spending any money on. Unless of course you want to fix it to give it to a younger grandchild and buy the older child a new one. Keep in mind a decent laptop is gonna be 4-600 dollars U.S. hope that helps and good luck:)

Not Turn on


you should have changed the processor before only when the sound started.i think you will have to change your motherboard now as your laptop is not responding at all

so do not worry much,all you have to do is change the motherboard and it will be perfectly fine and do not worry much.Thanks

Acer Aspire 5920 won't turn on, the charger lights up, (bright green) until you plug it into the back of the laptop, then the light goes dim and flashes.still no power to the laptop,not even the fan.


Your power supply or regulator in you laptop has gone south. sorry no quick fix for this one. It needs repaired and would include tracking down soldered connections.

sorry to tell you this.

Laptop went completely dead


Get in touch with Dell again as the replaced part will be under warranty. You can never tell whether a new or second hand motherboard has been fitted, as manufacturers are able to do either when they repair it, so it just may well of failed again.

Wireless Switch


From your description I agree, its probably a damaged switch. I never recommend anyone taking apart a laptop unless they are a mechanical whiz, have experience with laptop disassembly or can afford to break it beyond using. As far as turning the built-in wireless card on without the switch there might be a way. I don?t have a Compaq laptop to experiment with, however, my Dell Latitude BIOS settings has a setting to automatically turn on the wireless card at boot-up. Perhaps yours does too, during your laptops initial boot process get into your BIOS setup menu (press F2 or if that doesn?t work F10 keys). Look for an option relating to your built-in devices or wireless device. My Dell setting is fairly ovious: "Turn on wireless device". If you find a simliar option turn it on, reboot and look for the wireless adaptor. Another option may be to buy an inexpensive UPS wireless adaptor. You can pick them up on Ebay for around $30, not as spiffy as the built-in but probably a lot cheaper than paying a repair shop to fix a three year old laptop. Good luck.
