It sounds like the power socket on the laptop is faulty and needs replacing or resoldering. To check this, power up the latop with the power adapter, wriggle the plug in the power socket and check if the battery charge indicator flicks on and off indicating charging and not charging. If it indicator flicks on and off then you have a faulty power socket. This can be repaired but required the laptop to be completely dismantled to access the power connector.

Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

SOURCE: Dell studio 1735 Change vista to XP

I would not give up your Vista but just add XP to your computer.  I too need to run some XP programs on my Mac for my work.  There are two programs to help you do this.  One is VmWare and the other is Parallels.  These programs allow you to run another OS in a "virtual machine" I use Parallels on my Mac and can drag and drop files from one OS to the other.  You will be able to run you XP programs and keep your original OS in place.  This will protect your warranty/service relationship with Dell and give you what you want.  
Not often do you really get to have your cake and eat it too but this is one of them.
Cheers

SOURCE: dell inspiron 1521 won't turn on!

Try this: remove the battery and unplug the power, hold down the power button for 10 seconds, then plug the power back in, and try turn it on again. If this doesn't work, check the power plugin port, if anything in there is moving around, it might be broken and need to be repaired. Check for a local electronics or computer store for that. The only other problem I can think of is that the motherboard died, probably from over-heating. This usually requires a new laptop, or an equivalent price for a new motherboard. Good luck, I truly hope the first one works.

SOURCE: Dell laptop charger

If the charger is older and since you saw the light go on then off again, it could just be the charger wires. Assuming your charger has a black box attached to it, try pushing the cord in towards the black box (usually the end leading to your laptop) . If that doesn't work, wiggle the cord in that area. If this works, your problem is simply the wire is worn out. You can fix it by exposing the inside wire where the bad connection is, snip it, reconnect and cover with electrical tape. I just did this to my sister's last week.

Locked out of my dell studio 1735 with windows vista


If you have another computer; try Ophcrack. Ophcrack is a free bootable program that finds passwords linked to local accounts; not those that are on domains. It does pretty well; most of the time - but not all the time. Additionally, it is free. But you have to burn it to disc. The download is in .iso format.

If that doesn't work, you may have to use a pay program to reset it. There are plenty of those out there that will work.

I have a dell 1735 studio laptop. When I turn it on I have only a black screen. I'am able to do a diagnostic and I am getting an error code 2000-0146, but I can't get past the black screen.


Hello here is some info about your dell:

http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/p/19342733/19736103.aspx#19736103

Error 0146 indicates a failed/failing hard drive or bad drive sector.
Basically, this means your hard drive will need to be replaced.

Even more here:

Here is the home page:

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/Product/studio-1735

A computer repair shop can help you with recover your data if is not damaged by the bad sectors.

I recomend to change the system to windows 7 (32bit) because the support for vista is out by this year.

Good luck

My dell studio 1735 will not turn on


You mean you have no display in your monitor?If it is the problem. Then your computer has something wrong with it. Did it beep several times while you turn your computer on?There are different types of beeps and it gives different meanings. I suggest it is better to take your computer into a service center and have it check by a qualified technician. Comments please for further assistance. Thank you..:-)
