SOURCE: fn key on dell inspiron 1501 keyboard not working

Sounds like your number lock is on. Find the key with blue lettering that says 'Num Lk' (or something very similar). Press Fn and that key, and your number lock will be turned off and your keys will go back to normal.

Hope this helps.

Dell inspiron 1420 cpu upgrade ???

There are very little things that you can upgrade in an laptop. The processor that you have on your laptop is top end processor in its family and the thae best you can do is to go for a faster core2duo as any other processor will not fit on your laptop motherboard.

Contact your system manufacturer to know about compatible processor for your laptop.

Dell Inspiron 1420 switch off while on at Internet site and it will not start up again when pressing the on button.

you can first try to connect your laptop to an AC power source via the ac adapter, if it fails to charge the battery, then it must be your battery died. try a relacement dell inspiron 1420 battery,which usually lasts longer and is compatibale with your dell and costs much less than the original one!

Hi justlai33

Not to worry, it is a normal process when any laptop is started. It first check if it is connected to power and starts charging if connected to power.

As far as battery life status is good and fine, you can continue working on your laptop.

You will get a pop of notification when the battery life about to end, till then you can work with out any tension.

Thank you

Hi! can you help me on how to fix my dell inspiron 1420? after cleaning the heatsink fan and re-assemble it again and then i press the POWER it does not run anymore. the tree icon on the top of the...

The most likely scenario which does not assume permanent damage to your system is that there is an electrical short somewhere. Most of the time I have run across this problem, it has been to incorrectly placed or missing screws.
Laptops are a game of precision layering. You need to get a SERVICE manual (not the User manual) for this model at:
Remove all power (A/C and battery) from the machine and make sure you are grounded. Follow the service manual paying special attention to the screw locations and order of assembly.Also, make sure any ribbon cables or wires are securely and properly connected. Retrace your steps and reassemble the machine and try again.
NOTE: You can clean your heat sink and fan without disassembling your computer. Aside from compressed air, mini-vacuums specialized for laptop computers are available for under $10.00. There are also instructions online for how to you a traditional vacuum to safely clean your laptop are available online. If you must disassemble your laptop, make sure you have patience, a complete set of tools and an accurate Service Manual for that model.
Please leave me some feedback. I sure hope this helps FixYa and any others with similar issues.

Inspiron 1420 dell says plugged in not charging

Check power adapter’s DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Dell inspirion keyboard 1420 replaced new but not working

Not trying to insult your intelligence but are you sure you plugged the keyboard cable all the way and even into the slot and locked it in place. I have had issues where the contacts were not all the way seated in the slot and not fully locked in and the computer knew the keyboard but I had lost partial function. Below is the Dell diagnostics manual for running start up test on your laptop. If your installation is the original it should have a diagnostics partition on it. These steps will show you how to access and run. Just copy and paste the below in your internet browser address bar, hit enter, you can also print it to follow along when the laptop powers down. Good luck,, ParrotHead PC Repair
