Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook

1 Answer

Power shuts off after about five seconds

Bought a mobo for my dell b130 laptop. I turn the power button on and it shuts off after about 4 or 5 seconds. I greased the processor. It does not stay on long enough for the heatsink to even get warm. What could be the problem>

    There is your problem. you need to update bios to recoginize the new CPU. It may be a version earlier than you old MB.

My dell b130 will not turn on

At first check with another working adapter of same volt and ampere. Don't use higher or lower powered adapter, that may damage the motherboard. second power jack and third is motherboard problem.

My Dell Inspiron B130 won't turn on. The battery light blinks yellow twice then green, but that is the only thing happening.

Take the battery off completely and drain the flea power from the laptop by holding down the power button while the battery is off. Hold down the power button for about 15-20 seconds to ensure no power remains on the laptop. Check if your battery has a drain button too. Drain the battery and place it back on the laptop.
Charge it for about 30 minutes before you turn it on. See if it works.

I have a standard configured dell inspiron B130 laptop when i push the power on the system lights flash but the machine shuts back down, i do not believe the battery is any good so i use ac power. also is...

1.have u tried using a new charger? or atleast borrow someone's charger for the same model and try bad is ur battery. if it is ok enuf to start the system can u try that once 3. try removing the battery pack and disconnect the cable for power and press down the power ON button for 30 seconds and then replace just the charger and then start the machine keep the battery aside 4. did ur niece have to yank the cable out when she finished using the computer? maybe the joint where the connector had to go in was broken 5. was there any reason for voltage fluctuation(lightning rain etc) maybe the junction where the power reaches the motherboard was burnt 6. If all these are fine then ur voltage controllers must have blown.
4 and 5 can be rectified if u have soldering experience... 6th one needs more better tech support and most chances are when u get to a techie he would ask u to replace the mobo

Turns on for 4 seconds then turns off

It certainly sounds like the processor is over heating, the bios will automatically shut down the pc to save it. the laptop will have to be taken apart so you can get to the processor.

How can i find out how much memory, how fast my laptop runs, info on my dell inspiron b130?

right click on your computer and click properties.
in the page that opens you will see your computer details.
the speed is measured in GHz and memory in GBs or MBs.
usuall a memory of 1GB RAM and above is consider good.
speed varies according to your processor. for example a pentium 4 3GHz is slower thatn a core 2d duo processor with 2GHz.

Inspiron B130 shuts down after about 5 seconds

Sounds like a bad AC adapter not charging the system. If a known good adapter has the same issue (Or this adapter works on another system) then it is a motherboard replacement

Dell computer won't start up.

if you have 2 memory sticks, (i.e. 2 ram sticks that are 2 gb each) try putting on in and start it.  if it does not work try this.
remove all power supplies (cord and battery).   hold down the power button for 30-60 sec.   after that plug the power in and try turning it on.

Dell inspiron b130 won't boot up.

Connect an external monitor to the laptop and see if you can see what is happening on that.
It is a possibility that your inverter is faulty and will need to be replaced. They will normally power on for a few seconds, then cut out.
Remember to set the laptop to use the external monitor with the function keys.
