After reassembling Dell n7010 laptop it wont start at all!


Sounds like you have a problem with the motherboard. You might have zapped it with static electricity. Used motherboards are usually available for $130 delivered. Be more careful next time and avoid static electricity.

My lapto inspiron 1521 wont turn on and the hard disk LDE does not flashes.


Hi,


Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.


1. Removed the battery.
2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.
3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.
4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.


Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

My Dell Inspiron 1525 has no power. Tried a different ac adapter, no help. Reseated the battery, hard drive and memory and still no power. Computer will not start.


Make sure that there is a green light on the ac adapter. Try checking the end of the cable of the ac adapter and see if it is damaged ( the metal piece that connects into the laptop ). Also check the port on the laptop where you connect the cable of the ac adapter. If that is damaged then you have to request replacment of the motherboard if your laptop is still in warranty.

Dell C640 will not power up w/ac ad


  1. Verify that the AC adapter brick is receiving power.
    Shut down the computer and unplug the adapter from the system first and then from the power socket. Wait 5 seconds.
  2. Plug the adapter directly into the wall socket, bypassing surge protectors, UPS units, or extension cords. The adapter LED should produce a steady green light.
  3. If you do not get a green light, try the adapter in another wall outlet in another room or verify that the first outlet works with a lamp or hairdryer.
  4. You can also isolate the power problem to a bad adapter by swapping it out with a second adapter - such as one for use with the port replicator.
  5. If the adapter LED lights, check the computer for bad connections.
  6. Examine the system power socket to be sure it does not have any bent, missing, or pushed-in pins.
  7. Plug the adapter connector directly into the computer, bypassing surge protectors, extension cords, etc. Be sure that the adapter connector fits tightly into the computer's power socket.
  8. If you have access to another computer like yours, try your adapter on it or its adapter on your computer.
  9. If your computer is still under warranty and the AC adapter does not respond to troubleshooting, please contact your computer manufacturer.

Will Not charge with brand new a/ power cord it will at times power on if moved the right way but quickly powers off if moved the port inside looks to be fine But I hear there is a pin type thing inside...


The problem is with the AC adapter itself and is a very common problem with Dell AC adapters. My suggestion would be to get an aftermarket AC adapter that can be purchased on eBay as the Dell adapter is around 100.00. You can pick up an aftermarket one on eBay for around 20.00. The problem is a resistor inside the AC adapter that senses when a Dell branded adapter is inserted. What happens is that the resistor will get damaged and since it doesn't recognize the charger as a Dell branded one anymore it won't charge. However it will still run the laptop as long as it's connected. A lot of aftermarket AC adapters bypass this function and work perfectly fine.

Dell x200, no power at all.


By no power you mean the computer is not turning on right?

If that is the case there are just a few things you can check,

1. Check the adapter if it is working fine the LED on the adapter should be lit on when you plug it in the laptop.

2. Check the port where you plug in the ac adapter.
Make sure that the port in the back of the laptop is not damaged.

3.Check the wirings of the ac adapter.
Make sure there not damage.

4. After the 3 steps and you're sure it's a good adapter try to turn on computer. If not.
The best thing to do is to use another working adapter or if you have another laptop try to use the adapter you're using to that laptop and if it is working
then you have a problem.

5.If it ends up that the ac adapter is working including your battery. Then to fix your problem you'll need to replace the motherboard of that computer.

Hope this helps!
