Remove the hinge cover and see if you can press the power button directly on the multimedia board component of the palmrest (Under the Hinge cover assy) http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins6400/en/sm/hingecvr.htm#wp112388 If it works, reset the hinge cover it may have been misaligned. If no change, replace the palmrest

Power button shutting off as soon as i try to switch on


Shut down
Unplug the power supply.
Remove the battery.
Insert power cord
Reboot with power cord but no battery

If it comes up, your battery is dead or weak
Replace the battery.
If you don't even get a flash, your power supply may be bad.
Get a new power suppy.
If it continues the restart cycling, then there's something wrong elsewhere.

Dimensions 9100 added RAM now won't boot remove batery and will boot or reboot not from power off


Possibly a bad power supply. If you remove all the memory and it still won't power up unless you remove and re-insert CMOS battery that is a symptom of a defective power supply

My acer 7736z-4088 shut down and will not power up again.


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Power button does not work vostro 1700


LOL, sounds like a lemon. I would think either the memory, power cord or CMOS battery might be the cause. But since it boots each time after you go thru the process you described it has me baffled.

Maybe one of your memory chips is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

My Sony laptop is not charging when it is pluged in on to the electric oulet


If the battery is not charging when the power cord is plugged in then the battery is completely dead and needs to be replaced.

Are you sure your power cord is good and that you are not operating on battery power?

Take the battery out and see if the laptop stays on. Or you can reboot with the battery out and the power cord in. If it fails that means the Power Cord is the issue and you were working off the battery.

If you leave the power cord off and insert the battery, then reboot. If it boots up and stays up that means the battery has some charge in it. If it does not boot up or boots and shuts down, the battery is drained and you will need another one if the power cord is good and it's not charging.

Dell inspiron 1526 has problem (plugged in ,not


Hello there:
First you will want to ensure that the power cord is fully inserted at both the laptop and all the connections for the cord and that it is getting proper power. and check tosee that the connector thatthe power cord goes into is not loose if so this will have to be repaired
next remove the battery from the computer and unplug the power cord and then press in the power button for 1 minute than if this has a reset button on the back use a toothpick or a small item and pressin on the reset button for 30 seconds
now insert the power cord (NOT THE BATTERY YET)
and turn on the computer and it should now start up if so insert the battery and leave charge for 1 hour than you should be ok from here ok
Please keep me posted on this so i can assist you if needed.
Best regards michael

Have you tried to remove the battery. If not, try this remove battery, see if that works. If removing battery doesn't work you may have to reset your player. First remove battery again, but before you put it back on, slide or hold your power on button, keep holding it down then insert battery. The load-up screen should come on asking to reboot, cleanup , or reload firmware. Just reboot and see what haps

Try this (works sometimes):
Remove the power cord and the battery. Press the power button for a few seconds. Replug the power cord and power up the laptop. If it works, turn it off, and insert the battery again.
