Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook

1 Answer

My Dell Inspiron laptop won't power up. There are no lights AT ALL. It worked when I left for holiday. I have bought a new AC/DC power unit: just the same. The green light comes on when I plug the AC/DC into the mains, but goes out when I connect the laptop. I have tried power without battery, I have checked the battery and looks fine, but no lights on the LED when I press the LED button.I was away for three months, so the battery will have run down.

If the light on the A/C adapter "goes out" when you connect it to the Laptop... then your motherboard is bad.

Your motherboard is "shorting out" the A/C adapter, in which case you will need a new motherboard.

Sorry....

My dell inspiron mini notebook wont turn on


Is it getting power? Check the plug at the computer for DC volts? Has the AC/DC jack in the laptop been damaged due to pulling on the cord? Try another cord/charger with the EXACT same power specs.

Dell inspirion 5520 laptop won't turn on


For this kind of issue, please follow up the following steps to check:

1.confirm the battery and ac adapter connect the laptop normally.Maybe the bad connect lead to this problem. If there are no lights when you turn on laptop, one of possible reason is that your adapter is malfunction.

2.the second possible cause is laptop dc jack failure. If the dc jack is broken or loose, you are required to replace it or repair it.

3.Another possible reason is that there is something wrong with laptop motherboard. For this situation, it includs two kinds of possibility,a failure in an electronic circuit and BGA malfunction.

For more detailed reasons and solutions, please have a look at the following article:http://www.ifitjams.com/lappower.htm

If you verify your laptop adapter is dead and you plan to order a new one, I recommend one for you on the basis of your laptop model:

My Dell Inspiron Mini won't power up. When I push the "on" button, the light indicator flashes and goes off immediately.


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...

New aftermarket Inspiron 6000 battery will not power the Laptop


I would say that the power management portion of the system board is probably faulty if it behaves the same with both the factory battery and the aftermarket.

Many systems have the charge controller and battery interface on a separate board but unfortunately on the Inspiron 6000 it's integrated.

FYI, Here's a copy of the service manual for that system: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins6000/en/sm/index.htm

Dell Inspiron 1505; Battery does not charge; DC jack is loose..


The loose connection for the AC adapter means the motherboard needs to be replaced or the AC adapter jack on the motherboard needs to be replaced. (With Labor, it is about the same cost to buy a new motherboard as it is to have the old one fixed)

Motherboards are available on EBay for around $100

DELL WILL NOT POWER UP


If the battery is shot, remove it and see if the system will power up on AC only.

If not change, check the output of the AC adapter with a Multimeter set on DC voltage. It should be 15 to 20 Volts DC current at the connection end for the computer. If low or no voltage, replace the AC adapter.
