    Thanks for that



    thought it may be that, but when it re started it made me think it was not the power supply.

I had the same problem (turn 690 off, turn it back on, 1 & 3 and amber blinking and no turn on - turn 690 off, wait at least 8 hours, turn it on and it works). I acquired another working 690 and used its 750 W power supply - my original 750 W supply was bad. I attempted to troubleshoot it. I opened it up and there are two boards inside. There are three or four cables/ connectors linking the two boards. I had to unplug them to continue the process and, in the process, the supply started working and it has not failed since (I have successfully cycled power at least 30 times and, before the fix, it would fail on the first cycle every time). I believe that unplugging then reconnecting these connectors fixed it. I would caution anyone attempting to do this to be very careful but the fix is no cost and not difficult. These boards are packed into the box. Two tyraps need to be cut and replaced in the process. 750 Watts = 1 horsepower.

Your Power Supply has gone bad mate... known problem. You need to swap out the old power supply with a new one or maybe a working one (if you have another system)... the procedure is fairly clearly documented on the Dell Site n no Tags needed for that... :-)

I cant get my Dell Precision 690 to recognise a hard drive


Double check the bois to ensure you have all the Sata ports turned on. I have found in some Dell computers the only ports turned on are the ones in use when shipped from the factory.

Run the Dell Diagnostics Utility by pressing Fn+Power button at the same time.

If the Diagnostics doesn't come up, your motherboard needs replacement.

Computer wont turn at all worked fine the night before moniter works no lights dvd door wont open


if the unit worked last night and now it will not turn on then it's one of two issues. first we need to look at the unit are there lights or can you hear a fan running . if so your motherboatrd has failed , and the fact that most dell mobo's have intergrated video you couldn't see anything at that point. two if there is no lights or fans running and you can not open any drives then your power supply has filed . decide witch one and let me know if you dell is still under warranty i can call and do a warranty claim and get them to send parts and a tech if not give me the service tag number and I can find part numbers for you . hope this helps

To determine if the LCD screen is faulty ot the video card, connect an external monitor to the laptop's video port. Power up the external monitor first and the boot up the laptop. The video image should automatically switch to the external monitor. If you don't get flashes on the monitor then the video card is OK and the fault lies with the LCD screen. Flashes coud be caused by a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. A fault is usually easier to diagnose when it is not intermitten.

Dell inspiron 1501 work fine turn off last night now wont turn on


You mentioned trying a different battery, try a different AC adapter.

When plugging in the ac adapter to the wall, see if the POWER LED comes on on the adapter, then when you connect it to the computer, see if the LED stays on.

If the issue occurs with both AC adapters (No battery installed) then the motherboard has failed. If one ac adapter works but the other doesn't then the adapter is bad
