    If your battery and adapter work on other laptop, then your motherboard might be the cause of the problem.

    Did you try using battery and adapter from other laptop on the one that is with problem ?

All Dell laptops have a similar design flaw (in my opinion). The socket where the power cord plugs in to the laptop is probably loose. Use a toothpick or something to check it. Don't use anything metalic. If the socket moves easily then it has probably come loose from the motherboard. You may want to take the laptop to a computer repair shop to have the power socket soldered back to the motherboard. If you have the knowledge you can do this yourself but I don't suggest it. Laptops have a LOT of small parts. Hope this helps! Thanks!

Vostro 1400 won't turn on


I doubt there is battery problem, have you tried switching on laptop without battery and connecting through the laptop charger? most probable your battery is not taking the charge. so suggest you to disconnect the battery and try using laptop with charger then you'll find the problem.

Vostro 1500, won't start, I press the power button, the drive light comes on and goes off and nothing else happens. Screen never comes on, external monitor same results.


Hello.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.
Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

Turn on my Dell Vostro 1500 and all I get is a black screen


Remove and re-seat your RAM cards. Remove your battery but leave the power supply attached. Try to start. If this doesn't work, your motherboard has died and needs to be replaced. Not a do-it-yourself job unfortunately.

Dell Vostro 1000 will not boot.


It maybe the power adaptor is loose on the motherboard. Push the cord in and rotate it and continuously push the power button if it starts that is your problrm. You can temporarily fix it with tape once you discover where the cord wants to be or you can use a clamp.

Won't Start No lights flashing does nothing when I hit the power button


Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty.
If not, try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty.
Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.
