    When I attempt to turn on my Dell 1501, all three "lock" lights illuminate for about 5 seconds then turn off. Nothing else happends. The same condition happends with AC adaptor, with or without battery. The battery seems charged, as shown by the LEDs on the battery when tested.

Sounds like a internal hardware problem, I would advise returning to factory or place of purchase for repair. BPCS

Try this http://tinyurl.com/6ggadd but if caps lock is flashing and the others are off, most likely its a memory issue.

This is an issue with the motherboard and or proc. You will need service. You can get the parts and replace them yourself. If I had to guess. I would go for the proc. I think it would be cheaper. If you are under contract then call Dell and they will get you the parts you need.

Battery light on nothing else


Has there been ANY damage? Have you tried another Cord/Charger with the EXACT same power specs? Has the AC jack been damaged due to pulling on the cord while plugged it? Unplug, remove battery, plug in, try to reboot. Has it been overheating? Fan, vents, heatsink clean?

My Acer Aspire 5810tzg won't start, I've check the power cable and battery and they work fine on other machines, it just won't turn on


There is one thing you can attempt before seeking repairs. You should try a power reset.

1) Unplug the AC adapter
2) Remove the battery
3) Hold down the power button for 30 seconds and then release it
4) Insert battery
5) Plug in AC adapter and see if the laptop can power on

If it does not power on, you may need to seek support with Acer.

Dell Precision M6300 turns on and then nothing happens.


Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

Computer ramdomly turns off


Instead of unplugging everything, only unplug 1/2 of the things. If it still won't start, unplug 1/2 of the remaining things (noting which ones they are). If it restarts then, it was one of the last set of things you removed that is the problem, so keep eliminating possibilities in this fashion this until you can determine which component it was. If it turns out to be the power cord, it could be a problem with the power supply.

You've either got a bad motherboard or a bad processor (I'd lean to the motherboard being bad). I would honestly take this into a computer repair shop and have them check both.

Mainboard shutdown


Never do that to fuses, search the web (especially the site of your laptop's maker) for common cures to your situation, and failing diagnosis recommending a particular cure, don't do stuff at random.  That sort of thing sort of sounds like a battery issue; won't the thing come on with no battery, but the power power connected?
