Re: Inspiron 6000 just died

Just a thought on this. Is it possible that the fan vents are plugged up and the machine is unable to cool. Now keep in mind the fact that it now it wont boot at all. Overheating of the CPU has limits so to speak. The CPU may be damaged. Bottomline here sure that the fan can vent heat out of your machine.

My Dell Inspiron 6000 (which I think I bought in

Have you tried this:
1. After removing the battery
2. Press and hold the power button for at least 10 sec.
3. Put back the battery
4. Turn it on

if this doesnt work, there could be a problem with your operating system. Try accessing safe mode if you can login .TAP F8 continously on the dell logo screen, and it will open advance boot options. (Just select safe mode) If safe mode boots properly try running system restore to restore it back to the previous date where your computer is still booting to windows. Hope this helps

My inspiron 6000's power flickers on and off intermittently, switching between A/C & battery power. I've replaced the power cord. Any other ideas?

Try removing batt and use ac adapter alone. Check if laptop works fine also check if LED flickers still.

Try removing ac adapter and use battery alone and check if batt flickers as well.

If flickering only happens when both are connected or vice versa try this first. Update the BIOS for your laptop. Download the BIOS update from http;//

Battery icon flickering when plugged in

this is common within your product series. i actually havent seen one that doesnt do that. it either means the battery is dead or the motherboard is bad. and im starting to lean tword motherboard only because this is such a comon problem. and even after people buy new batteries, it still does it. so i believe its your motherboard.

Dell inspiron 6000 power adapter problem

If the DC socket at the back of the laptop is moving, that means that one or more soldering joints on the motherboards are broken. The way to fix the problem is by disassembling the laptop completely, the laptop, taking motherboard out, and replacing the socket.
This requires full disassembling and a precision de-soldering and soldering job on the motherboard.
Using the computer in this conditions can cause further damage.
