    Green light is on, fan is running, screen won't come on.



    Oddly, the adapter emits a high-pitched whine.



    I recently replaced the hard disk.



    Any ideas?

    Did you attempt to hold the on switch down for a count of 3 to see if it starts?
    Are there any lights on the notebook lit when the adapter is plugged in?
    Was the computer operating on battery or wall socket when it last worked?

My computer won't turn on at all, the green light comes on but only a black screen shows. When it was plugged in to power the light wasn't showing that it was charging so took out the battery and then...


1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
4. The power button could be bad.
5. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

When you press the start button nothing happen not light or start up


First remove the battery and put it back in, you want to make sure it has a good connection.

Next you want to check the power adapter. If it has a built in LED light, it should turn green when plugged into the wall. If it does have a light and the light will not turn on or it blinks, replace the adapter. Next, plug the adapter into the computer, does the LED light change? Example, the LED light was a solid green, when you plug it into the computer it blinks. If the light does something along those lines, then there is a problem with the laptop itself.

If the power adapter does not have an LED light, then you need to use a Multimeter to check if the adapter outputs the right amount of power...which should be around 12 volts.

If the battery and power adapter pass the tests, then you are looking at a hardware issue in the laptop. From your description of the problem, I would guess the motherboard has died or that the charging jack on the motherboard came loose and needs to be replaced or re-soldered.

Two things that would stop the light from coming on, No Power or Motherboard is broken.

Not charging


which green light?

light from the ac power adapter or the light from the battery?

if ac power adapter you are referring to try a diff power wall socket if ac power adapter still off then replace ac power adapter alone.

if battery light is off but the laptop works fine with ac adapter alone try updating the laptop BIOS.

if ac adapter light turns off when it plug to the laptop replace motherboard.

Battery has gone dead. When I plug the A/C cord in the light on the charger immediately goes out and won't charge battery.


try connecting ac adapter alone without the laptop, check if ac adapter light will stay green or blue.
try another power outlet using the ac adapter alone without the laptop check if the ac adapter light will stay as green or blue. if all fails replace ac adapter.

if ac adapter stays green or blue try connecting to the laptop without the batt, check if the ac adapter light will stay on, if yes then try connecting ac adapter to laptop with the batt plugin check if the light stays green. if not update the BIOS. if fails replace motherboard.

On the issue with th ebattery on the 1521 inspiron. Took battery out and plugged in still will not power up. Could it be the adapter as well?


On the ac adaptor, look for a green light that will turn on when you plug it into the wall outlet, if its on that means the ac adapter working. If you get a green light on the ac adapter but then the green light goes away when you plug it into the laptop then that means the laptop has a bad motherboard.

If you plug the ac adapter into a wall outlet and get no green light then that means the ac adapter is bad and you would need to get another one.

Toshiba t900 will not turn on or charge


Leave the battery disconnected and only hook up the ac adapter. See if you can get the laptop to turn on and get video. If you can then that means either the battery is bad or the charge is so low on the battery it can't turn on the laptop. If the battery is bad then you would have to replace it.

If you still can't get the power on then check the ac adapter to make sure the green light is on. This will let you know the AC Adapter is working properly. if the light is on then the adapter is good, if the green light is not on the adapter then its bad and would need to be replaced.

If after these steps you still can't get power to the laptop then that means the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

Ac adapter light is solid green, but when plugged into laptop...


the most likely reason is a systemboard problem (the ac plugin port cannot changed independently for notebooks)

Laptop will not turn on


Unplug the ac adapter from the back of the computer. Make sure it's plugged to an electric outlet. check if the ac adapter light is solid green. if not. then you have to replace it.

If it is solid green, reconnect it to the computer, if the light on the adapter goes out as soon as you plug it in to the system, you need to replace the motherboard. call dell to seek your options for replacement.
