Re: Dell Inspiron 9100 Laptop will not turn on.
Hi, Please try the following DIY to confirm the part 1.remove the battery and check on adapter mode. 2.If not powering on then check with refixing the battery. 3.if no use then check any LED is glowing,check with taping the num lock and if the LED responds then this is the memory issue otherwise a MB issue. 4.if no light glows then also this is a MB issue as converter board is on the board itself

Hello there: First you will want to ensure that the power cord is fully inserted at both the laptop and all the connections for the cord and that it is getting proper power. and check tosee that the connector thatthe power cord goes into is not loose if so this will have to be repaired next remove the battery from the computer and unplug the power cord and then press in the power button for 1 minute than if this has a reset button on the back use a toothpick or a small item and pressin on the reset button for 30 seconds now insert the power cord (NOT THE BATTERY YET) and turn on the computer and it should now start up if so insert the battery and leave charge for 1 hour than you should be ok from here ok Please keep me posted on this so i can assist you if needed. Best regards michael
Your motherboard is not the problem. Try this. When you are on your main desktop right click your mouse. Click properties, click on settings. This will show you your monitor settings. Make sure that you have 32 bit clicked on quality. Change your screen resolution so your numbers are higher. Just change it to the resolution that you want. If this does not correct this go to this link to update your video driver http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_P4_9100&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid= Just copy and paste. This will take you to the page for your laptop. Just select your operation system. Hope this helps. JimmyC
The reason they told your daughter that is because either there isn't a powerful enough CPU and enough memory to support it and also there are no vista drivers for that laptop on Dell's website.
If you decide to put vista on that laptop your going to need to make sure that whatever hardware drivers vista doesn't detect, you'll need to search on the net to find vista compatible drivers if they are out there, it will be time consuming.
My recommendation from my own experience, make sure you have at least a 2GHz processor and 1GB or memory.
The laptop screen is secured to the laptop with screws at the hinges. There are usually two screws per hinge on the back edge of he laptop. Remove the plastic panel next to the hinges, this panel is secured with a screw near the corners of the laptop. The LCD screen has one ribbon cable and possibly a power connector for the back lighting attached to the motherboard under the plastic panel near the hinges. Disconnect these before you lift the LCD off the base.
It’s either the plug on the AC adaptor (might have a broken wire) or the laptop’s input jack that the adaptor plugs into. The input power jack is soldered onto the motherboard. Could also be a problem with the charging circuit on the motherboard (would need to replace motherboard to fix). Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided. Please show your appreciation by rating your experience. Thank You.
First you need to test your adapter first not the power cord.Check that your adapter can give out according to the adapter spec..maybe 16-19ou V.If it does and still you laptop don't turn on then you have motherboard problem.
