No power on my laptop inspiron 1501

My inspiron 1501 will not power on at all. The power adapter light comes on and is green. Tried to remove memory, HD, CD rom and boot, still no power. Tried to remove the battery and boot with power adapter, still no power. When I press the light panel on the battery, the 1st three lights come on and they are green and they they go off. What seems to be the problem?

My Dell Inspiron laptop won't power up. There are no lights AT ALL. It worked when I left for holiday. I have bought a new AC/DC power unit: just the same. The green light comes on when I plug the AC/DC...


If the light on the A/C adapter "goes out" when you connect it to the Laptop... then your motherboard is bad.

Your motherboard is "shorting out" the A/C adapter, in which case you will need a new motherboard.

Sorry....

Dell Inspiron 1501 will not boot with battery or adapter


Take the battery out and try with AC only, if no change, then you will likely need a motherboard replacement

Dell inspiron 1501 work fine turn off last night now wont turn on


You mentioned trying a different battery, try a different AC adapter.

When plugging in the ac adapter to the wall, see if the POWER LED comes on on the adapter, then when you connect it to the computer, see if the LED stays on.

If the issue occurs with both AC adapters (No battery installed) then the motherboard has failed. If one ac adapter works but the other doesn't then the adapter is bad
