Pressing the CAPS LOCK or NUM LOCK there is a beep.


launch the Toggle Keys dialog box by holding down the Num Lock button for five seconds, and clicking Yes. Thereafter, a loud beep will sound through your computer's speakers whenever Caps Lock is turned on or off. (To turn Toggle Keys off, once again hold down your Num Lock button for five seconds.)

Hi!
You have enabled NUM LOCK. Press button "fn" and find another button with blue tag "Num Lock". Pres both buttons at once.
Hope it helps

Press power button nothing comes up on screen, however, the num lock icon lights up and flashes, the caps lock icon also lights up. Dell Vostro 1510.


Copy and paste this link into your internet browser for the service manual for your laptop.
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/vos1510/en/SM/html/trouble.htm#wp1092170
The star icon (*) means flashing LED, the bold circle means on, the circle within a circle means off.
The LED's that they are referring to are the NUM, CAPS and SCROLL.
It appears that you have a problem with your LCD. Try connecting an external monitor to your laptop. If you get a display then your LCD display panel needs to be replaced. If no display then your motherboard needs to be replaced.

Hi there.
Try cleaning the system memory and slots with a soft dry clean painbrush and re-seating it.
Also make sure the air vents and fan area is free of dust.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
