Question about Dell Inspiron 5160 Notebook
When I press the power button to start computer, the fan starts running but the screen is blank/black, runs like that for 3-4 seconds then shuts down. It only occassionally will boot up. Tried new processor but no change.
If you have 2 memory sticks, (i.e. 2 ram sticks that are 2 gb each) try putting on in and start it. if it does not work try this.
remove all power supplies (cord and battery). hold down the power button for 30-60 sec. after that plug the power in and try turning it on.
