    At startup hold down the f11 key. If this does not work then you need to check on something else.

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.

Press power button nothing comes up on screen, however, the num lock icon lights up and flashes, the caps lock icon also lights up. Dell Vostro 1510.


Copy and paste this link into your internet browser for the service manual for your laptop.
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/vos1510/en/SM/html/trouble.htm#wp1092170
The star icon (*) means flashing LED, the bold circle means on, the circle within a circle means off.
The LED's that they are referring to are the NUM, CAPS and SCROLL.
It appears that you have a problem with your LCD. Try connecting an external monitor to your laptop. If you get a display then your LCD display panel needs to be replaced. If no display then your motherboard needs to be replaced.

Vostro 1000 Fn locked


This is ****. Respondent doesn't know the model in question and his suggestion is of no help--there is no "blue lock" graphic imprinted anywhere on the Vostro 1000 keyboard. A user with this sort of question is already frustrated and does not need his desperation exacerbated by a nonsensical response from someone calling himself "RescueTech".
The user, on the other hand, may be excused for believing the problem is a locked Fn key--Dell does you no favours by printing the alternate number labelling in blue, AND the problem is reversed as long as the Fn key is held down--but the actual culprit is Num Lk. You'll find it on the top-most row, five keys from the upper-right-hand corner. Press it once and your problem will vanish.

How to fix flashing lock with A in it computer won't boot up vos


The flashing CAPs Lock is an indication of a MEMORY error. Try Memory modules one at a time, and see if the system boots with one module or the other. If it does, then replace the faulty module. If system will not post with either module, replace motherboard.
