Dell m5030 powers and turns off 2 seconds later on battery or power cord


Either the battery or charging power cord is defective. If the battery is fully charged, then the battery is defective.

My screen on my dell inspiron 1520 has gone black


You've lost your desktop display.
The first thing I would do is to start the computer in safe mode. Once there, do a system restore back to the time that it worked.
I would also, just to be safe, do your disk management tasks like checking your hard drive for errors and running defrag.

Solution for ''the power light for dell inspiron 1520 turns on for about 5 seconds and goes out


If there is a yellow light on the front panel, indicates a faulty AC adapter. If you know someone with an Inspiron 1520, test with their adapter.

I have a dell inspiron 1520 that is 15 months old doesn't go on


Generally, if the AC adapter for the system's LED goes out when connected to the system, check the battery and see if it is holding a a charge (Press the button next to the LEDs on the battery see if all 5 light up)  If the battery still has power, then most likely there is a failure of the motherboard.
If you can, try another Dell D-series AC adapter and see if the same thing occurs.  If the system powers on, replace the AC adapter, if not it is a motherboard.

Laptop won't power up!


disconnect the battery and just keep the ac power connected. hold down the FN button and hit the power button. if some lights falsh and the computer shutsdown in 4 - 5 seconds its a bad motherboard. If you get other light lemme know. Call dell tech support and get a dispatch made if system shutsdown right after the lights flash. You can also try the chat support at www.dell.com/chatsupport

keep a phillips screw driver handy when you call as they might as you to disconnect the hard drive, CD drive and other cards like thememory card and wireless card to check if they are not causing the issue.
