Question about Dell PC Laptops

Dell Inspiron 9100 Laptop will not turn on.

My Dell 9100 will not turn on. I've checked the power cord and it's OK. It must be the motherboard. Is this something I can fix myself?? Anyone else out there ever fixed one??

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

My dell inspiron 9100 will no longer charge. it was working fine last week. i unplug it and it discharges like normal but when i plug in the cord it says its charging but will not go above the percentage...


Depending on how old the laptop is, the battery may need to be replaced. Since it charges, I would not suspect the power cord, so indications may lead you to requiring a new battery.

Good luck

Dell inspiron 1526 has problem (plugged in ,not


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

Dell inspiron 9100 laptop computer boots up but


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.

Run MS Vista on Dell 9100


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.

How do you replace the screen or lid of the dell 9100


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.

Charging issue


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).

No power or lights on my inspiron 2650 laptop


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.
takecare.
