Question about Dell Inspiron 1520 Motherboard

1 Answer

Won't stay on

With AC plugged in and a new battery, the computer begins to turn on then shuts off within seconds. It won't boot. Nothing on the screen.
When this happened initially I figured it was a bad battery. It is doing the same thing with a new battery.
The AC light shows power. When the AC is not connected there is nothing, so I know the computer is getting power when it is plugged in.
Any thoughts?

May be your motherboard. Uninstall your ram memory units and see what it does. Their under the laptop behind small cover that you need to unscrew. If not very tech savvy, then i suggest taking it to the nearest (and chapest) computer shop for diagnostic.

I have a emachine that powers ou, power pack fan, cpu fan but not the hardrive. It shut down and now won't start up. No beeps


Unplug from AC, open the case, clean if necessary, reseat the memory mods, use Electronic Contact Cleaner spray on contacts, plug in, push the on/off button. Does it begin to start, and in a few seconds completly shuts down? No LED's , no fans, nothing? Sounds like a PSU failure. Mine went out in 6 years.

Your statement is a bit confusing. Try thi,s unplug AC, remove battery, replace battery, plug into AC outlet push on/off button start normally. If that fails repeat and at boot repeatedly tapping F-12 to enter restore/recovery.

It's probably your logic board. One thing you can try that may help you out is to take out the battery (if you can) and press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. If it's a capacitor problem on the board that should discharge it. If that doesn't work then you should probably try to turn on the computer while holding CMD + Option + P + R to reset the PRAM. If that doesn't work then you're probably going to have to seek professional help.

Hi.

Take out the AC power jack and then remove the laptop battery. Plug AC power back in and see if the laptop will turn on. If it turns on let it boot the operating system and then shut down as normal, remove the power cord and reinsert the battery and again see if it will switch on. If it does then there has been a glitch with the battery. If it doesn't then there is a problem with the battery.

If the laptop won't switch on either with or without the battery then there is a possibility that the motherboard has developed a problem.


Good luck.

Acer aspire 5100 won't stay on when booting on battery


replace the battery. Batteries usually only last about two years and it sounds like it just cant hold any more juice. To find a battery go to google.com and type in the model of computer and push search. Sorry for the news but its an easy fix
