SOURCE: Mouse goes crazy and other things.

This seems to be caused by a faulty driver on the system.. you need to update the drivers from the Dell site... here is the link

SOURCE: dell inspiron 9400 not booting

Hello.

The most common reasons are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

The star icon (*) means flashing LED, the bold circle means on, the circle within a circle means off.
The LED's that they are referring to are the NUM, CAPS and SCROLL.
It appears that you have a problem with your LCD. Try connecting an external monitor to your laptop. If you get a display then your LCD display panel needs to be replaced. If no display then your motherboard needs to be replaced.

Caps lock flashing indicates faulty memory - it's a POST (Power On Self Test) before BIOS executes. When memory is removed it should indicate "no memory". Carefully re-insert the RAM memory module, check the tiny contacts inside the connector on dust. Then try again.

If there are 2 memory banks (1 one the back, the other under keyboard) remove one RAM memory module.

If capslock keeps on flashing test it with another RAM module.

Attach to external monitor, if it works, there is a fuse that is blown near the video output cable. Not big enough for a novice to fix.
If not shown on external, it is a dead lcd, or bad solder ball issue. Quite common on those models.

Fuse details may be shown on my webblog. "Getting In Too Deep" Google it. Then search for Dell - it should come up in the list.

Dell Studio 1737 with Back lit keyboard but Cap Lock Doesn't Light, replaced Keyboard less than 3 months ago, light worked then and went out just recently.


I'd try a different keyboard and see if the caps light works on that - so you can confirm whether it's the keyboard, or computer.

Laptop won't startup


Try removing your battery and then putting it back. If that doesn't work, then either your hard drive is bad or maybe even your motherboard is bad. If you can get into your computer's BIOS, check and see if it will allow you to do a system restore from the BIOS page. As stated above, it is probably that your hard drive is bad.
