Screen Flashing then Computer shuts down

Okay so i have this dell studio 17 laptop which boots up and everything but as soon at the dell logo pops up the screen starts to flicker and shortly after the computer shuts down. I don't think its the screen itself cause i plugged in a monitor via vga and it did the same thing. I'm not sure what else it could be. also the computer is running straight off the power cord and not the battery because the battery does not get recognized by the computer and when i plug in the cord i get 3 short blinks from the power light. is there any way i can get this back up and running? thanks

The two things I've dealt with in cases such as yours is I have sometimes failed to have a 110v outlet really, actually working. The other problem was when I wouldn't be patient enough to plug in the computer and let it charge for a while BEFORE attempting to start it.. I'm not knowledgeable enough to know for sure, but, in your case, I might also suspect a bad battery... that was sucking up too much charging juice... to allow the computer to start up and run.

SOURCE: Dell latitude D600 battery charge light flashing

You have a ground fault issue in the DC JACK.

There are escentially 4 circuits in the jack and one is not making contact.

1: Negative Charge circuit (outter ring)
2: Negative Run circuit (outter ring)
3 Positive (Inner Ring)
4: Signal (center pin)

I believe the negative charge circuit (outter ring) is not making contact internally. Typically what happens on that model DC Jack is the tension contact metal becomes fatigued, and does not touch the outter ring.

This could come from Heat causing early fatigue of the metal.
Or normal wear, the metal has simply worn out from regular insert/removal.

SOURCE: flashing green and orange battery light on body of laptop

The flashing orange light indicates that the battery isn't working properly. This could be due to either the battery being worn out, or a battery fail safe has kicked in. Either way the battery will need to be replaced in order to fix this. Since the performance isn't quite right, I'm going to say that a fail safe has engaged, you can confirm this by running the computer without the battery and see how the performance is. You will need to replace the battery, and the replacement will make the machine work properly.

I HAVE POSTED THE SOLUTION FOR THIS BEFORE. ON THE LEFT REAR THE SCREW FROM BOTTOM OF UNIT TO THE LCD. LOOK INSIDE WHERE THE TOP AND BOTTOM GO TOGETHER YOU WILL SEE A PIECE OF ALUMINUM TAPE IF IT STICKS OUT PAST THE BOSS TOWARD THE PC BOARD. WHEN YOU MOVE LCD THERE IS ENOUGH FLEX FOR IT TO SHORT TO PC BOARD. TRIM THIS OFF AND YOUR PROBLEMS WILL BE SOLVED. CAUTION REMOVE BATTERY AND UNPLUG FROM AC BEFORE THE ABOVE. BOBBY

SOURCE: Dell Laptop Charger, wont charge bat. but keeps computer running.

The center of the connetor for the AC adapter to the system has a very fine wire that is the sensing wire for the battery charger. It ID's the type adapter connected to the system. If the wire is bent or broken, the system cannot ID the adapter and the battery charger will not function.

If the wire is bent or broken, then replace the AC adapter. ALso try a different adapter and see if the issue occurs with it. If the issue happens with more than one adapter or if this adapter functions normmaly on another system, then the motherboard will need to be replaced.

Dell Studio had boot problems. Analysis showed registry was damaged. Decided to repair Windows Vista. Put in Windows Vista DVD and began installation. At normal mid installation re-boot, laptop restarts...


Its better if you can reinstall the OS...
Dell has a default partition on the computer and you can install with the same..
If you have windows vista on the computer then tap F8 when the computer turns on and then you will be able to see the advanced boot options.. Select repair my computer.. In the repair my computer screen select the dell factory image restore...
Your computer will go through the installation and it will be up and running...
If you have windows Xp then you have to turn on the computer and when the dell logo appears you have to simultaneously press control and the F11key.. You will be able to reinstall the OS in this way..
If you dont find this default partition then go ahead and reinstall the OS and then install all the drivers for the system....

Dell laptop w/ Vista - will post but then freeze up


Do you see the hard drive listed in the BIOS?
If not, probably a hard drive issue - but strange you can't boot from a CD.
Did you reset the BIOS to defaults? If it is a BIOS issue, you could try and flash it to a newer one (if it exists) but if it goes wrong you could brick your computer.

I had a failing hard drive in a laptop which would not boot up. I bought one of those converter things (laptop IDE to full IDE) so I could hook it up to my desktop pc as a slave. I was able to access all the data and transfer it to the new hard drive in the laptop. If you have a SATA connection on the laptop hard drive and your other computer then I don't think an adapter would be needed.

Dell studio has dvd stuck in slot, i rebooted and the dell logo screen with status bar always stops 3/4 of the way through. And will not let the computer boot up, it just stays there frozen...please help


If your DVD is still struck in the drive. Insert 2 business cards half into the slot and feel for the DVD inside the drive. make sure on card is above the dvd and other other is below the dvd. Now press the eject option and bend the cards away from each other i.e. up and the other one down and pull the cards out of the slot. Your DVD should be out. Else repeat to get the Dvd out and try rebooting.

The dell logo flashes then the screen goes blank. The hard drive keep flashing like the laptop is booting up okay it is a xps m140 and has vista home as a o/s


After the logo flashes, press F8, repeatedly, until a white-over-black "boot menu" is displayed. Choose "Safe Mode", to see if this "minimal" version of Windows will startup successfully.
