Based on the symptoms (Power light on cord is on when not connected to laptop but goes out as soon as you plug it in), the motherboard has to be replaced. YOu may call dell to ask about their out-of-warranty depot or you can call their spare parts sales dept to purchase the motherboard, then find a local tech to replace it.

Dell Vostro 1000 Bios - Flash Failure


I attempted to update the BIOS on my Vostro 1000 to cure the bad battery message. My original BIOS was 2.6.1 and I intended to update to 2.6.3.

I could not flash under Windows 7 so I installed XP but the flash failed half way through.and the computer did not power up again. All that happened after I pressed the power switch was the light came on and the CD drive shuffled a couple of times. No screen illumination.

Various posts were scanned but no solution found until my buddie came up with the following sequence.

Get the file posted in this link on a computer running XP

http://hotfile.com/dl/113520903/05689ed/VOSTRO1000_CRISDISK.ZIP.html

To Create a Crisis Recovery USB you must use a Win XP system
Note: Running XP through compatibility more in Win 7 will not work


1. Insert Blank USB Drive

2. Open "CRISDISK" folder

3. Open "WINCRIS" application

4. It should detect the USB Drive

5. Click "Start" Button WINCRIS should create the USB recovery drive

6. For Crisis recover, be sure to Power drain system.
. A. Remove Battery
. B Depress power button for 10-15 sec.

7. Insert USB drive into USB port of the Dell.

8. Hold END button while plugging in power cord in system

9. Continue to hold END and depress and release the system power button.

10. Continue holding END until USB drive begins to flash and a single beep is heard.

11. System may remain blank as it enters recovery mode - Anoying Beeping will be heard - Beeping will stop and FANS will function Another series of Beeps will be heard

12. System should complete recovery in 5-10 min. If system has not powered down in 15 min, power down by pressing the power button

This worked for me and as a bonus I do not have the battery error message anymore.

My Dell Vostro 1000 keeps shutting off. Cure?


I am having the same problem.
I used to think that maybe the problem was related to overheating so I I bought a cooling pad with fan. This improved the situation somewhat, but, the problem continues.
My friend thinks it is related to the power supply/power cord.

My dell vostro 1000 won't turn on the green light


Try to do this: (Draining flea power)
1. Unplug the ac adapter (if connected)
2. Remove the battery
3. Press and hold the power button for at least 10sec.
4. Put back the battery and ac adapter
5. Turn it on

- check if you can now boot to windows, if not there could be a hardware problem and next step would be running some diagnostic test on the computer for hardware problem.

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.

Dell Vostro 1000 won't turn on/no power at all


The power connector within the laptop maybe broken. Not sure about Dell's but many laptops have only solder points holding the internal power connector to the motherboard. With too much agitation, the internal power connector becomes loose and then broken.

More info will help, does a light show on the laptop when it is plugged in? Have you tried removing the battery and lettting the laptop sit for about 10 mins, without any power? Have you re-seated the ram?

These are all possibilities of the symptom you have.
Let me know and G'luck!
