Check out power supply , common source of problem. If that is ok then you may have a bad peripheral or bad motherboard.

Maybe your screen is kaput - hook up an external monitor to see if that works.

Your Monitor is not connected properly
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/wireless.mspx

Connecting Your Monitor
1. Turn off your computer and unplug the power cord.
2. Connect the white connector end of the DVI cable attached on the monitor to the connectors on the computer.
3. Connect the USB cable that was included with your monitor to the computer and the upstream USB connector on the monitor. Once this cable is connected to the computer and the monitor, you can use the USB downstream on the monitor.
4. Connect any USB devices.
5. Connect the power cord.
6. Turn on your monitor and computer. If you do not see an image, see Troubleshooting Your Monitor.

NOTE: The Monitor will display full screen in White, Black, Red, Green and Blue color rolling pattern on screen if the DVI cable is not connected. This self test pattern will be displayed continually when Monitor detects that DVI cable from Monitor to PC is not connected.


* Check connection integrity at both ends of the video cable.
* Ensure the monitor and computer are plugged in to a working electrical outlet.
* Ensure power button is depressed fully.

SOURCE: No display and wont boot

A Blinking Amber or Yellow power button means that the power supply is receiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to the components. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Power supply is easier and cheaper to replace.

Fan on Dell M5030 Starts on startup and then shuts down but computer continues to boot


Lots of fans are variable speed. Meaning they spin faster when the computer is hot and slow down when not. It's most likely spinning down. If the fan was bad the computer will either shutdown or generate an error during BIOS and halt the boot process.

Fan makes noise on my Dell Inspiron One 19


Usually there is a fan on the CPU heatsink and a fan in the power supply.
Open the case and turn on the computer and use a small timber stick and poke it into the CPU fan to stop it spinning and if the noise stops then this fan needs replacing.
If it is OK the the fan in the power supply is faulty. I recommend you replace the power supply because there are dangerous voltages inside this power supply.

Dell inspiron n 4010 hangs often


I suggest you open the laptop, and clean it out first. THEN go on with the diagnoses.

Dell Support > Inspiron n4010 Notebook PC > Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/insN4010/en/sm/index.htm

1) FIRST remove all power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

2) FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components on a computer.

Relieve your body of Static.

You should use an ESD wrist strap, and connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source.
This is an example of an ESD wrist strap,

This pictorial guide for disassembly of an Inspiron n5010, should help also.

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/taking-apart-dell-inspiron-n5010-inspiron-15r-laptop/comment-page-1/#comments

The screws, and cables, etc., are in a different place, but disassembly is still the same.

Use a can, or two, of compressed air for computers.
Also you may wish to use Q-tips, and a soft small brush.
(Makeup brush? )

DO NOT use a vacuum!!!!

A vacuum creates Static electricity.

Dell inspiron 1545 14 beeps (more details inside).


This indicates a motherboard issue, sub out the ram memory one at a time, test each as you go, if no change! The motherboard will need to be replaced, or the laptop.

My Dell Inspiron does not boot up only the solid amber light on the Motherboard on I try everything and still nothing works please help


Not so sure about this but I hope this will help.
-try to disconnect all the cables from the back (monitor, keyboard, mouse, usb's, power cable, etc.)
-then disconnect all the card (video card, sound card, NIC) if all are integrated then you dont have to.
-connect just the power cable
-try to turn on the computer and check if it beeps
-if it does not beeps need to replace the motherboard but before you do this check if the fan will spin even for a single second if does not spin then you also need to replace the power supply as well
-if it beeps then turn it off again.
-connect the video card and connect the cable of the monitor, keyboard and mouse
-turn on the computer then check if theres any display
-if theres no display check for any beep indication. and right it down on a piece of paper on how many times it beeps and if its long beep or short beep.
kindly provide an email if this things does not work so that I can give you a resolution.

My dell inspiron 1000 powers up for a short time then shuts down. Even when windows starts up it shuts down.How do I fix this problem.


Hi dabrow72

Sounds like an overheating issue but there are other possible causes. Make sure the fans are free from dust and debris. A can of compressed air usually does the trick but sometimes opening the laptop to manually clear the fans is required. Laptops/computers cut off by default if the cpu becomes too hot. If your fans are not spinning then it's surprising how quickly this happens. A sure sign of it being clogged fans would be having to wait a short period before the power will turn back on. You may well notice a strange noise from the fan as it trys to spin or maybe it won't be turning at all.

Does this help?

I have Dell laptop inspiron 630m. I formated the laptop then the display driver is missing. Its showing all the things except its display got more wider


just check your video card model, then go online to download the video card driver.
in case you have a build-in-video card like intel .....somethings, just go back dell.com and check your model , and download the video card driver.
