SOURCE: Blank Screen and blinking light

I was using my laptop when it suddenly froze. Tried ctl/alt/del but nothing happened. So I powered down. When I tried to power it back up, the power light comes on, the lock lights blink twice, the fan powers up then down, and the dvd drive clicks on and off. Then nothing--black screen. My laptop battery is nearly dead, so I am always plugged in.
This seems like a common thing with the Inspirons, and here are some of the suggestions I tried:
I removed all power sources, held down power button for 30 sec to reset system and tried to boot up again--same issue
I unplugged the screen closed sensor, thinking the unit might be thinking it was asleep (lid closed), because that what it acts like. No luck.
Removed memory--and reset--nothing.
Replaced button battery on motherboard, now same problem.

SOURCE: how to turn off the number lock button

Just press Fn+F11. An icon of a Padlock with a number 9 must be unlit for you to use the keyboard normally. If you need to activate the numeric keypad again, just press Fn+F11 again.

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 1526 cannot communicate with battery

The diagnostic Error is a False positive you can ignore the diag error as the LCD is functional. If the battery is not recognized in the BIOS or you get an warning the AC adapter is not recognized, then you may have either a damaged AC adapter sensing pin (Fine wire in middle of ac adapter connection to Laptop) or a problem with the charging unit on the motherboard.

If the sensing pin is damaged or the ac adpater is not sending the right signal to the system, the battery charger will not work. SO if you have another Dell D series AC adapter, you can try it 1st. If the battery is 18 mos to 2 years old, you might see if it is IDs in BIOS and if it indicates battery state. Also the battery should have a test button and 5 LEDs on it. If the 1st 3rd and 5th LED flash the battery is bad. ANy any come on solid, then it is a % of charge, each LED = 20%

If you end up replacing hardware, then it will most likely be in this order:

AC Adapter, Battery, Motherboard

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 1526 blank screen after hibernation

Press Fn Key plus POWER key ans see if the diagnostics will start. If no go, then the system is likely in a No POST state.

You can check the warranty status here:

http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/my_systems_info/details?c=us&cs=04&l=en&s=bsd&~ck=anavml

and no paperwork is needed to get warranty support, all you need is the express service code on the bottom and be a authorized user of the system.

I have an inspiron 1526 with 2 flashing padlock icons and a black screen i cant turn it on what can i do?


Those are Diagnostic indicators that point you to the possible cause. The padlocks will have a number ( Turns on when the numeric keypad is enabled.) or capital letter(Turns on when the uppercase letter function is enabled.) or arrow key(Turns on when the scroll lock function is enabled.).
According to those indicators you either have a bad memory module or your CPU (processor) is bad.

Dell inspiron 2200 laptop - what are the 4 lights on top right of keyboard for? the first one is constantly blinking and the others are never lit up


Hi those are your keyboard and status lights

Looking at your laptop from the front the first light on your Right hand side is your scroll lock light and is only on when you press the scroll lock button (the symbol shows a lock with a little down arrow)

The light to the left hand side of that light is your caps lock light and again only turns on when you press the caps lock key (The symbol shows a lock with a A in it)

The light to the left hand side of that is your numeric keypad light (Symbol has a lock with a 9 in it), this comes on when you press the num lock key on your keybaord

Finally the last key is your hard drive light (like a cylinder), this will be flashing most of the time as you use your PC as it is constantly reading and writing data
