Remove both the AC cord and the battery for 1 minute. Then plug in AC only and see if PC will power up. If not, next connect both AC and Battery.

Be sure to press and HOLD power button for >5 seconds when powering a Laptop.

First, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether

For that open back cover of laptop then reattach the ram memory and battery .Make sure your battery is working fine.

Then check.
Also find motherboard after open back cover pull cmos cell from motherboard for 10 minutes then check.
If still same issue then your motherboard chip set has internal issue so after trouble shooting above thing if still same issue then take it to nearest laptop service center because your motherboard need repairing.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Bettery problem


Hi,


It could be the battery is already degraded. If the battery is more than 2 yrs. old you could check the battery health meter and see if you need to replace it. Hope this helps

Dell inspiron does not boot up


Do you see anything on screen? Dell logo? I will assume you see nothing. Not even a Dell logo.

First test your power supply with a meter to be sure it is putting out 18-19 volts. If good, remove the laptop battery and try again. The next tests should be done with the battery not connected to the laptop.

Remove the hard drive and see if it boots. If not, next remove the dvd drive from the laptop and try to boot. If no good, remove the ram, clean the contacts on the ram and the slot with a pink pencil eraser....gently, just make them shiny. Try to boot with no ram/hdd/dvd. Put the ram back in and try again. Try connecting the laptop to an external monitor.

If after all this you still cannot get a Dell logo at boot time, the mainboard is likely dead. A refurbished one (with only 90 day warranty) will probably cost you at least $250 from Dell. Please let this one go and look at a new laptop.....sorry.

Hope this helps :)
