Inspiron 1150 won't turn on. Noticed recently that battery life seemed shorter, plugging it in did not prevent it from shutting down after receiving the low battery warning, and it took a long time to re...


A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective.

Loss of light on screen Dell Inspiron E1705


Looks like the backlighting on the display has failed, sometimes it is just a lose cable, buy most often the LCD needs to be replaced.

to check the cable see the manual at http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins9400/ for how to get to the LCD cables (usually just under the cover that the power button is on)

Dell Lattitude C840 Laptop


The 3 LED's (Num Lock, Caps Lock, Scroll Lock) are used by Dell to diagnose no-post issues such as yours. The only error code close to yours is [Num Lock ON, Caps Lock FLASHING, Scroll Lock ON]. This indicates a a memory error. Try reseating the memory modules. If you have 2 memory modules, insert one at a time to determine the faulty module.

Dell latitude d600


yes it can, plug a external monitor in the video port if you get video the rest of you computer is good the problem is the display.Now you might want to speak to a pro for repairs as it could be simply unplugging the conector from the motherboard or replacing the inverter.Last but not least you can try this for yourself remove the power battery and memory,press and hold the power button for twenty seconds.Reinstall them again and try again.
Good luck

if its the battery with a press button that lights up 5 green lights.. if u hold it for about 6 seconds it should light up all or some in a row like 000.. ( depends on charge it has) after 6 seconds none should flash , they should turn off . if any do flash or led green are missing in between its likely a bad battery.
