You don't turn off a machine when updating the BIOS for any reason.
the system boots from the BIOS, and if the BIOS is corrupt due to an incomplete update. it's going to be very tricky to get it back on. contact Delly on the issue. best of luck Ram

SOURCE: my dell inspiron laptop 1000 screen turns dark

This is your back light on your lcd display, To prove that have a flash light handy when it goes dark point the flash light at the screen and you should see the screen and that would mean right there you got a back light going out or the inverter that powers it is going bad. Etherway if this is not your area of work you need to tech it to a computer tech local to have it repaired.

Thanks for being considerate with your ratings and feedback today.

Yes, that's correct, you must replace the RAM memory module; is very easy just get a small screwdriver and open the small compartment on the backof the laptop, there is no need to open the entire cap. Also you can test each module to find out which one is failing

Power Doesn't Turn The Computer On

Well if isn't the power supply or the motherboard, it's a boat anchor. You can still use the TX certified sound card in a new one.

Dell Inspiron 15R 7 beeps of death

Your best bet is to contact DELL themselves. There may have been a silent recall for your product which you don't know about, and they might repair it at their cost, But with this kind of situation, always go to the manufacturer first.

Inspiron m5010 won't power on

Remove main battery and try again, next! have the power adapter checked for correct voltage, if okay! sub the ram memory one at a time and test, if nothing! the DC jack in the computer is a common issue, the laptop must be dismantled down to the motherboard level to address, at this point I recommend a professional to assess.

M5010 - Tested DC Jack (PC wont turn on at all) and i noticed it shows 1.7V instead of 1.9V Is it bad?

The Dell Inspiron laptop mains adapter output voltage is 19 volts.
If your adapter has an output voltage of 1.7 volts then the adapter is faulty and you need to purchase a new one.

I have a Dell inspiron M5010. I have had it for about 6 months.The problem started with the keypad. At first certain letters/numbers wouldnt work at all. Then the computer had been unplugged from the power...

Sounds like a hardware fault, try taking the battery out and plugging it into the mains and see if that will start your laptop up.

Failing that have a look at the underneath of the laptop for the RAM cover...If there is 2 sticks try with only one in and if that doesn't work try just the other RAM stick in.

Try these things and let me know how you got on.
