Remove the battery as well as the adapter. Then plug back the power adapter only. Try to boot up with out the battery. If it worked your laptop crashed from hibernation or stand by. If not, BIOS might be affected and needs reset.
Hope this helps.

Have you tried running diags or PSA? press and hold the function key and press onthe pwoer button and relase both buttons when the system turns on. look for any error messages. and what is the status of the capslock and scroll lock LED? are they off or on? if they're both on and the caps lock is blinking, it would be a memory error, try reseating the memory module.

My WiFi light is not lit up on my Inspiron 1520. I cannot detect any wireless networks.


In Dell Inspiron 1520 Notebook, there is a switch on the left hand side of the laptop to enable/ disable Wifi. Make sure that it is on and with wireless light activated - Press and hold Fn and press F2 (Fn+F2). This will enable the wi-fi and you will be able to detect and connect to a wi-fi network


Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

GoodLuck!
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

Won't stay on


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.

My dell inspiron 1520 won't start up the caps light blinks and the other two lights stay on nothing comes up on the screen my drivers won't open my wifi light doesn't come on any help would be appreciated...


You can unplug the laptop and also remove the battery for 15 minutes.
Put battery back, plug it in and restart.......

Also check that AC Adapter is working properly,

Another common cause is memory module failure.
Test memory modules, or replace for new ones.

Hope this helps

Blinking Lights, Computer Wont Boot


If it's blinking 9 times then it's likely telling you one or more of the RAM sticks are in need of replacement. To check these, remove the laptops power cord and battery, then locate and remove, the cover for the RAM. Remove one chip at a time and try booting the laptop.
