Question about Dell Inspiron 1000 Notebook

1 Answer

Shut down problem

The whole thing just freezes and the screen goes dark. I have to disconnect the ac and pop the battery, then sometimes it will restart, sometimes it will start to reboot and do the same thing just go blank.
The one thing I have noticed is that the connector plug on the ac line is very hot to the touch when I remove it. What I am really looking for is a disassembly diagram. I have some electronics experience but thinking this is probably a internal power supply problem. I have another ac adapter and it is the same result with it.

Acer aspire 3610 graphic or battery problem?

It sounds like your backlight is damaged. On some units this can be replaced on its own. On others, it requires the entire LCD to be replaced. I'll see if I can find out which this is, in your case, and find you a part number.

Screen only lights up on battery power but no ac adapter/charger tried three ac chargers all do the same thing so its not screen or charger

Hi David
It sounds like a fault to its power transition section circuit. Actually, this circuit is built inside the mother board to your laptop.
Please contact the authorized service center, and describe and show them the problem you do experience now, with your laptop. It can be rectified. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

My HP dv6704nr laptop will not boot, you turn the power on, the blue lights come on for about 2-3 seconds, then it goes off, i have tried using just the battery, and taking the battery out and using the AC...

It could be a number of things. Here are my ideas, in order of probability:

It could be a faulty power supply. If your power supply goes bad then your components wont get enough power to fully turn on, and the whole thing shuts down when it tries.

Sometimes shutting down like this indicates an overheat. It is possible the heat-sink that connects to your processor has lost its connection and needs to have its paste reapplied. If you leave it completely unplugged for a couple hours before trying to boot, and it takes longer to shut down, this could be your problem.

The motherboard could be at fault, though that's the least likely. It is possible, however, to have components on your board melt from overheating and cause a bad connection somewhere.

Whatever the cause, you will likely need to bring this in to a shop that can physically test each component for you, to see where the problem lies. Unfortunately it's just too hard to tell what's wrong with it without being able to test it.

Satellite l355d-s7809 wont boot up it gets to the first screen but thats it

> If you have a blinking cursor after the first screen then harddrive is not detected
> if you get error recovery screen that means its a problem with OS
> if you get a blank screen after first screen or it freezes, first thing you do is to remove battery and ac adapter/charger, hold down power button for 10 seconds then put battery/ac adapter back on and turn on the computer, sometimes static electricity inside the mainboard is the cause
> if still having issues we need rams to be reseated
Note: tell me which one is the scenario so i can advise you more for the troubleshooting

Reset your bios settings to "Bios defaults", then disable power management.
In Windows, go to device manager and try to detect new hardware. Follows screen instructions.

Screen goes blank when on battery power

Two possibilities: The display is a power hog. It's possible that the battery is failing, and has enough power to run the PC, but not the PC AND display at the same time. You would need to replace the battery, in this case. Or, in Control Panel, in Performance and Maintenance, in Power Options, there should be settings somewhere for the display when on battery or AC power. Make sure that the one for Battery doesn';t turn the display off after 0 minutes.

Does not power stay on

try this with just the ac plugged in and the battery removed. Sometimes the battery, when fully discharged, can cause the system to shut down.

A whole crapload of problems.

Not a hard drive issue I'm afraid. Sounds like they switched the whole system out. So you disassembled the laptop and put it back together? That's more than most of these guys can do. You've got a loose lcd cable, or memory is going bad, or there's a short in the case-palm rest area. All these are common with this model. Good luck
