    Hari007,

    I've tried to hit F2, but it doesn't do anything after i power up...I'm thinking the motherboard may be fried, but i don't really know how to check that...i pretty much just turn it on and go. Thanks for your help.

I have a Dell XPS M1710. PC will not boot, no green light only yellow. Received error code that PC did not recognize poweer source. Bought new power source. PC will not boot, no green light only yellow and...


HI there!

A amber light power button means that the
distribution of the power is not working properly,

And as you have said the battery won't charge anymore,

Usually what fixes that problem of yours is a BIOS
update but from what i see you cannot fix it with a BIOS update anymore.

And on what they said yes your gonna need to replace motherboard because it's not detecting the charger anymore if you can still access BIOS setup go to battery info you will see that the ac adapter is unknow.

So for the fix of your problem there you'll need to get a motherboard for your computer.

Hope this helps!

Dell m1710 xps will not boot, grey screen only. battery light, num lock lights work and hd lighyt flashes momentarly, then goes off.


Are you certain the laptop is not booting? I had one the other day, customer thought it wasnt booting, but it was the LCD screen that was bad. She had only a gray screen too. Something to try, with the screen up, put your hand on the top of the LCD (fingers on the plastics on the back side, thumb on the screen at about the same position) about 4-5 inches from the left edge and squeeze gently. Does the screen change at all, vertical or horizontal color lines? If it really is NOT booting, try F12 when first powering up and if you get to the boot menu, choose diagnostics, run them and see if you get any errors.

Screen remains black


It seems to be the screen of the system has gone bad , but in case if you see DELL on start of the system, it can be OS which is corrupted but the way you are telling that you can see it on external display it it the Monitor.

Good Luck

Sounds like you have a driver issue that is conflicting with a current setting. Do you play games that are very demanding on your video resources? What you can do is uninstall the driver or roll it back and restart the computer. Helps if you have the driver file for which ever video card you have, I have the 7950gtx and it never had any problems with Left 4Dead or Unreal Tournament. I keep a notebook cooler handy when I'm gaming.

Dell XPS M140 laptop shuts off after powering on


Most laptops that I have worked on that power off that quickly turned out to be an overheating problem. Is the cooling fan running for the brief period that you can hear the hard drive before it powers off ? If the fan is running another potential resolution might be to remove the processor and apply new thermal paste.
