Hi Robert Harper,
It looks like an issue with Video (BIOS, Memory Shadowing)
Could you provide me with the Service Tag of the system?
You can try connecting external Monitor if available to check if that works? (After connecting external monitor you need to press fn+f8 to toggle the display)

SOURCE: Inspiron 6400 doesn't start.

On Flash Flash indicates that no RAM memory is being detected. So remove both RAM modules, insert 1 at a 30 deg angle till the gold contacts cannot be seen, then lock it in place, and see if the RAM is detected. Test both modules in both slots, see if system will boot with at least one. If no change, try a new RAM module, if still no change, replace the motherboard

Above my scroll/# lock the lightbar is lit,and some letters produce #... i = 5 etc


Sounds like yo have the scroll lock or num lock turned on. If the scroll key is a colored key (the scroll lk lettering is blue) then you will have to Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the scroll key to turn it off. When it is turned on if you press the letter i you get the number 5. If you press the letter O you get the number 6.

Notice that the numbers on the keys that have letters are a different color than the letters (blue most times). That means you have to Press and Hold the blue FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the key with the same color if you want the colored representation to happen.

Some laptops will use a Square Box instead of the blue colors on the keys. In that case you have to press and hold the key a the lower left portion of the keyboard that has the square box, then hit the key you want.

What does it mean when the blue light is on? I do not recall seeing it before. Thanks.


If the blue light you are referring to is on the right side of the keyboard it could be indicating that the Number Lock, Caps Lock, or Scroll Lock are Enabled.

3 blue lights above number keys. light on far right is on - what does it mean?


They generally go Number Lock, Caps Lock, and Scroll Lock. Hit the Scroll lock button (might say something like ScrLk on the keyboard) and see if it turns off!

On the computer keyboard by nextech is there suppose to be keyboard lights and if so how are they turned on


Hi
The usual lights for a keyoard are the 3 above the number pad. they will be labelled to correspond with the following keys:
- CAPS Lock
- NUMBER Lock
- SCROLL Lock
When they are pressed once the light will go on, meaning that function key is active. So if the CAPS Lock key was pressed and the light is on, then any letter key (A to Z) you press appear as a capital in documents. Press CAPS Lock again and the light goes out and the letter will type lower case.
The NUMBER LOCK is for the keypad to the right (not the number across the top and above the letters). This function ensures the numbers will appear instead of their alternate function, such cursor and Page UP/down, Home, and End.
SCROLL Lock is not used much, but it can be used in Excel to hold the current selection. For example, you want scroll about the sheet using the cursor keys, but want to keep the current cell selected. So with SROLL lock active, when you use the cursor key's, the sheet will move in the direction you want while leaving the selected cell selected. Try it and you'll see what I mean.
I hope this helps.

My dell inspirion 1525's screen is black numerical lock light is onblue,the cap lock blue light is flashing,the download lock light is on blue as well


Hi Friend, In this case if the caps lock is flashing blue and the other 2 LED's are solid blue, this is an indication that there is something wrong with the memory (RAM) itself.
So I would recommend you to please reseat the memory card of the system. I am also sending you the link that will assist you in reseating the memory
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1525/en/SM/memory.htm#wp1180987
Please reseat the memories. Please let me know if it is of any help.

The first one from left to right is signified by a number 9, this light is turned on when the numberical keypad is enables. The center light is signified by a letter A, it is on when the uppercase letter function (Caps Lock) is enabled. the third one, far right, signified by a down arrow, is on when the scroll lock function is enabled.

The device status lights on the far right side near the front of the laptop case. The top light is the power status light, the middle light is the Hard drive activity light, the bottom light is the status light for power management, battery, AC etc.
