    Hello Maciekpl,



    Hmm that makes it easier with your experience.I strongly suspect the battery or the Battery charging section,also i am assuming you have taken the exact model and sub series motherboard replacement confirmed to be working well.



    try removing the battery and then trying to run the laptop from the AC Adapter directly?if that doesnt work,return the battery back into the laptop and keep it for cold charging for about 4 hours ( without turning ON the laptop - as you would a mobile phone whose battery is completely drained off ). Try after that?

Mydell 5160 has a yellow blinking light on the front 1st from right. any suggestion on cause or solutions.


It is the battery Status indicator and flasing orange light indicates that battery is low. After connecting the charger it should turn solid green, which indicates that the battery is charging and it turns off when battery is charged completely.
If it continously blinks, check out the charger and battery.

Since it sounds like an issue with the Power first try to release flea power.Disconnect the charger,remove battery,press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.Reconnect the battery and charger.Turn on system and check if it turns on. For further help please check Dell Inspiron 1525 Manual. Also confirm if the light on the charger stays on,when connected to the system.

Try this: remove your battery, unplug power, press and hold power button for at least 20 seconds, plug power cord back in but not the battery, press power and see if you get normal boot. If this is the case, your battery probably needs replaced.

Dell Inspiron 5160 Black screen on power up


There is a small board that the power button is integrated into that connects to the motherboard. When this power board malfunctions it will cause this issue with the machine. It can, and quite often does, damage the motherboard when it malfinctions. You should take the machine in for a power board replacement and a diagnostic to make sure that the power board hasn't damaged the motherboard.
