Vostro 1310 won't turn on

My day old vostro 1310 shut off and would not turn on. I pressed the power button and it lit up. I could hear the hard drive go a little and the hard drive lite went on. Then the number lock key started flashing. Nothing else happened after that. The screen never turned on. The fan did turn on and off intermittently but nothing else happened. I called dell technical support and they had me run it through a bunch of tests and they said they would exchange it if his supervisor approved when I call back on monday. Sunday for kicks I pressed the power button and it turned on without any trouble. It just gave the start in safe mode option. If dell still lets me exchange it I definately will. I just want to know what is wrong.

Vostro 1400 won't turn on


I doubt there is battery problem, have you tried switching on laptop without battery and connecting through the laptop charger? most probable your battery is not taking the charge. so suggest you to disconnect the battery and try using laptop with charger then you'll find the problem.

The cap lock and scroll lock flashes and the number lock stays lit and it wont start on my Vostro 3500


This indicates a motherboard issue, remove main battery, and unplug the charger from the laptop, now press and hold power button for 60 seconds in hopes to reset the computer. Install battery and charger and turn on.

My dell vostro 2510 won't power on, when i press power button to turn on the pc , the power light turn on for about 5 sec then it turn off itself,


Try this to see if can give us some codes with it's on board diagnostics. Hold down the function button of your laptop and then the power button while still holding down the Fn/Function button on the left side of the keyboard. See if this gives you either an error message on your screen or, flashing lights above your keyboard. Pay attention, write down what lights where lit up what ones flashed, etc. This is to diagnose if the LCD isn't working. Comment back if you get either the light code or the error code on the screen. IF nothing happens try holding the Fn/Function button on the left side of keyboard and holding the F4 button, see if that makes any lights flash above your keyboard.

Had a power outage yesterday and today the vostro turns on but when it attempts to read the hard drive it just shuts down. Have replaced the battery no luck have swapped the harddrive to another vostro...


Well it sounds like the IDE or SATA controller got fried. This means most like the board is now no good. Laptop boards are around $285 not worth replacing because the labor runs around the same.

Can't start windows: Hard Drive - No drive detected


The laptop cannot see/detect the hard drive. This means the hard drive is faulty or it needs reaeating.
Remove the hard drive and inserting again, then reboot the laptop, if it still cannot detect the hard drive then it is faulty.
You need to purchase a new one and install Windows on the new hard drive.
