Take out the battery and try it with just the power cord.

If that doesn't start it up then take a pen or paper clip and push in the reset button (should be on the side or front area) for 5 seconds and see if it comes to life.

Orange light flashing, no chargine


A replacement battery must be the EXACT same power spec as the original in DC volts and Milliamps, or you could damage the Mobo components. Some aftermarket batteries do not work well. The connections may be different.

Everytime I turn on my D410 Dell Laptop, the screen doesn't turn on. The caps blink about 10 times then shuts down. Please help?):


The flashing caps lock light indicates an SDRAM memory fault. If you are comfortable accessing the RAM yourself you can try re-seating it and see if that fixes the problem. If that does not work or you do not want to open the laptop up yourself, you will need to have the RAM replaced.

Dell computer won't start up.


Hello,

Please connect an external monitor, and turn on the power. If it is working, then it is video and LCD problem.

If not working on external monitro, try to remove the battery, then unplug AC adapter. Then press and hold power button for 30 seconds.After that, put battery back and re plug AC. Turn on the power. If still not working, and no display on screen, Then the motherboard need to replace.

Won't post/boot


Try removing one of the two memory SODIMMS under the cover on the bottom of the unit. It sounds like you could have a bad memory problem that is keeping the machine from completing the POST (power on self test). I'd try one stick at a time and see if that helps.
Good luck, please rate this solution if you feel it has helped!!

Laptop Won't startup Vostro 1500


See if you can run the Pre-boot System Assessment (PSA) diagnostics. To run the PSA+ Diagnostics on this system, perform one of the following actions:

1) Hold down the <Fn> key while pressing the power button.

2) Turn on the system, press <F12> at the initial Dell™ logo screen, and select “Diagnostics” from the boot menu.

3) Disconnect the AC power and remove the battery. While holding down the power button, insert the AC connector into the back of the system. The system then starts and the message “Diagnostic boot selected” displays. The system then launches the PSA+ Diagnostics.

According to Dell specs, there is no error code listed that you described, (Flashing Caps LED). Also try reseating the memory modules, (you might want to try this first).

Thank You.
