Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook

Dell B130 won't load up

I have had many problems with this laptop. I invested in another mobo. Lastnight I installed the mobo and the latop worked perfectly. I was using the HD from another laptop that I had purchased. It brought up everything that the original owner had on his HD. I deleted everything and the laptop was running fine. I did a disc cleanup and defragment. This morning when I turned it on it went into the dell screen but the white loadup line only went about an inch and stuck! Will not go any farther. Any ideas what the problem could be? Last night I run the diagnostic disc and the tests passed.

    Thank You for the info. After running the diagnostic disc again it came up with 2 error codes. They are in the audio. The code numbers are 6563:0268 and 6563:0667 I can't seem to find anything on the internet on how to correct these errors.

    Kegtapper. I tried the F8 key before the meter bar apprears and it does nothing. Still brings up the meter bar. I can't believe this laptop worked perfect last night and nothing today. I have tried a different HD, memory and even switched the dvd/cdrw drive and the same thing.

    Found the problem! The screws in the case were not tight! When I pushed down by the HD activity light it loaded up! I turned the laptop over and tightened the scres and it runs perfect. Why would the case screws not being tight cause it not to load up? New one for me.

Finding where the problem is.
Start windows in SAFE MODE
You will see the last file that it hangs at. Usually AGP440.sys
Disabling AGP440.sys
Boot the system - Hold F8 Key
before the METER BAR on the bottom starts

Go to the Recovery Mode -
When it ask for directory <1> should be shown (unless you have multiple boot partitions.
When in the console mode enter
disable AGP440 (or AGP440.sys)
***depends on SP level***

Exit the console and attempt to reboot normally

hope that helps

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.

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

Keys Not working

if replacing the keyboard failed to resolve the problem then the keyboard controller is most likely failing and than means a new motherboard.

Laptop will not come on

If you have good ac to connector and still no activity(no beeping or lights)  need a new mobo.  Try with no battery in.  Else call dell for warranty or take to shop to replace motherboard.  Dell offers extended warranties.  I hope you reupped it!  I change 5-10 Dell mobo's a day.

Blue Screen with error messages

Startup your laptop keep clicking f8 until you see option like star in safe mode just click on "LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION(your most recent settings that worked)"

Simple as that ;-).
