There is a coin cell style battery inside that keeps the cmos values while the notebook is off. In time that battery will run down and needs to be replaced.

It sounds like your hard drive has gone bad. As this is a laptop you can try to reseat the hard drive, if that does not help then it might be a case of hard drive crash.

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.

I press the power button on my Dell Vostro 1500 and the HDD runs and the num lock light stays on and the scroll lock and caps lock flash and the DVD drive light stays on then the thing just shuts itself...


There are 9 states for LED error codes on this model. The error you're describing indicates that the laptop does not detect any RAM (memory sticks). Since you tried to isolate bad memory stick it looks like your motherboard has a problem and needs to be replaced.

Power problem in monitor


This type of problem generally occurs when adoptor stops working and battery goes down. Show first of all check your power adoptor, its working or not, to check-out remove battery and use power adoptor then try to boot. If there is power led on means adoptor is ok otherwise try to reconnect and also check whether the power supply is ok for adoptor. For canfirmation use another adoptor.

If above not working then you can try to these steps:
1. Remove Power connection (Adoptor connection to Laptop).
2. Remove battery.
3. Re-Connect power to laptop.
4. Make switch on.
If above does not work then after step 2 try the followings
A. Press and hold power button for abt 20-30 secs. keep holding on and insert Power connection now if power led get on leave the button. After that it should on.

If all above didn't solve your problem, then its time to take tour of service centre.

Thanks and Good Luck
