    What is the sound you are getting?

  • hubcap1324 May 11, 2010

    When you say flip out....does it beep? If so the beep sequence is very important as it will give a hint to what the problem is.



    Or if you hear a loud ratling noise, could be a bad fan, failing hard drives make a lot of noise sometimes too.

Is the sound coming from your fan on the power supply, if is it turn off the computer and check to see if the fan had a lot of dirt on it. if it does use a can of air to clean it out. try turning on your computer to see if tht cures the problem.

Just to understand your problem your laptop is working properly when plugged directly to the power cord but not when running only on battery? Then it sounds like you need to replace the battery.
thank you,

Hello, Last night I shut down my Dell E510 desktop - the proper way - by going to the start menu, shut down, turn power off. Then, today, I pressed the power button on the front of my tower and...


This sounds like a definite power issue. This means that the problem could range from being as simple as the power button itself not working/disconnected to the power supply being dead.

Things to try:

1. Have the side of your computer open and press the power button. Notice if any fans start to move or anything that happens.

2. Do you notice the Hard drive light flashing at all when turning on?

3. Has anyone else been using or been close in proximity to the computer that could have bumped it, causing something to come loose?

4. ONLY if you feel competent enough, check the cable connections inside the computer. Make sure to disconnect from the wall for 30 seconds and reconnect before touching any cables inside. Leaving the cable connected allows the computer case itself to act as a ground to prevent static shock.

Good luck!

Check that all drivers are up to date... I had the same thing happen to me. NVidia has a newer driver that might help u out. Also unplug the laptop and remove the battery. Hit the power button a few times to ground it out.
Plug only the power cord in and open up command prompt. As administrator run a chkdsk to possibly find the problem...
For me it was the driver! Good luck

Power light comes on and goes off and machine is dead


Be certain that the 2 parts of the adapter are snug (disconnect then reconnect them). If still a problem, the power adapter is probably faulty.

Dell 4700 Computer Integrated NIC Problem


Check for the pins inside the integrated NIC to check if the pins are bent / disfigured. Does not look like the additional card is making any different, looks more like a moving NIC cable is makin the difference.

Lemme know if this helped!

Dell Inspiron 2200 Charger Malfunction


Try to turn off the computer and remove the battery from the bottom of the notebook. Turn on the computer with just the charger plugged in. If it doesnt turn on. you may have a bad power port.

If it has no power/charging issue since that happened except that the indicator light doesnt turn on when you plug in the charger, you may just need a bios update. Click here. That's the bios update for the inspiron 2200 from dell's website. You should have at least 30% charge on the battery and the ac adapter should be plugged in so you can run it. The computer will restart and will come back normally after this. I'd suggest that you backup your files before running this.

Power failure


by plugging it directly into the wall... what was it plugged into before. and have you actually taken some other electrical device and plugged it in to make sure the wall socket is still live.
there is also a reset button on most power strips... it may have tripped.

Try those and let us know.
