Why My Inspiron mini will not start?


Hi,

It is unfortunate that the computer is not turning on. Request you to try following the below steps which might help:

    (1)Turn off the computer.
    (2)Remove all the external peripherals like AC Adaptor, flash drives, battery, etc.
    (3)Press and hold the power button for 30sec which releases the static on the computer (if any)
    (4)Put back the battery and plug in the AC Adaptor.
    (5)Let the computer charge for some time.
    (6)Try turning on the computer.
    If the computer doesn't turn on then check hoe the Power LEDs on the system, battery and AC Adaptor react. Then I can check and help you further.

    Thanks and Regards.
    Kiran Kumar.

My battery is low and when I plug the power cord into the laptop the light that was on on the adapter turns off and my laptop will not turn on. I have a Dell Inspiron 6400


I'm assuming you are using a GENUINE Dell laptop charger designed for this model?

Check the end of the adaptor, if it is the type that has the centre pin, make sure it has not snapped off.
Check the adaptor is putting out 20 volts DC by connecting a multimeter to the outer and inner parts of the DC jack.

Usually, the ac adaptor LED will flash green if there is no charge going to the laptop ("spitting back power"), however, a dead adaptor is often recognised by a lack of the lED light glowing

You can try with a universal adaptor, it will not charge the battery but at least will eliminate the charger or the charging circuit. If this also fails to power up the laptop, then the issue lies with damage to the motherboard

You just follow these steps:

1.Remove the battery and Adaptor
2.Press and Hold the On buttun for 30 seconds (without battery/adaptor,this is for reset the BIOS in your Laptop)
3.Now you just connect the adaptor with your laptop
4.On the adaptor socket main switch in main board
5.Watch the Laptop charging Light is ok or not.Also watch the Light in Adaptor is lighting normally or not.if all are normal then try 6th step otherwise problem in your Laptop.Just go for an authorised service center.

6.Try to ON the Laptop

All the Best....

Does not start; no power indicator light


Take out the battery and then try the different ac adaptors. If you still get no lights on the laptop then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced. Just make sure that you know at least one of your ac adaptors are good.

If the adaptors have lights and they turn on then you know the ac adaptor your working with is good. Also make sure they are plugged into a good working outlet.

I have a Dell D600 (PP05L), its not powering up no lights. I noticed on the power adapter the green light goes out when plugged into ac power. What could be wrong here? please help


Hook up your power adaptor to ac power without it being hooked up to the laptop and see if the green light stays on. If it does then you know your adaptor is okay. if your adaptor is only hooked up to ac power and the green light still turns off then you know your ac adaptor is bad.

Take out the battery from your laptop. Now hook up the ac adaptor to the laptop and if it stays green then you know your battery is bad but you also want to make sure you can get your laptop to turn on. Hopefully it will turn on with only the ac adaptor hooked up to it.

Laptop won't turn on


The blinking orange battery light generally indicates that the battery isn't working properly, usually going out and not charging properly. In this case, since the adapter will not power the machine without the battery, and it should, I'm going to say that the adapter is going out and not getting the proper amount of power to the system. Try replacing the adapter. Be sure to replace it with a Dell replacement, the Targus brand universal adapters do not work well with Dell machines, and in most cases won't work at all.

Dell Latitude C610 Laptop won't turn on


If the light comes on for three seconds and then go out ,generally means a power distrubution problem . remove the optical drive and memory from the system and try powering it on. If u get the same result , its time to take it to service tech , as your motherboard needs to be checked
