Well it seems that the system is running but there is no display on the screen.To confirm that try connecting a external moniter ot the system and see if you get the display on that.Also try hitting the NUM lock key and see if it turns on and off as well.After connecting the external moniter if you see the display than there is an issue with the screen and incase u still do not see the display than there could be an issue with the video card.So incase you still have the warranties on the system you call the dell tech support and get the parts replaced.
Hope this helps!

Dell inspiron 1525 won't turn on

Try to take out the battery and just use the adapter to power it on,
If your done with that then try just using the battery to turn it on, if it still won't give a single light.
If you can borrow an ac adapter for that laptop try it ,
If it still doesn't work. You'll need to replace the motherboard. Just make sure the ac adapter your gonna use is working good.

Dell Inspiron 1000 won't turn on. It is always

Well if it is always plugged to the wall then the laptop's power jack is the common problem there. You can have a Computer Technician check it and diagnose it for you. Be careful how much you pay, if that is the problem (i'm pretty sure it has to be) you can shop for the part online (ebay is a good place to find them for around ten bucks) and hand it to the computer guy. Otherwise you may be charged a fortune to get it fixed. Next time, use a power surge between the power adapter and the wall's power outlet.
Here's is a brief explanation of what happens with the power jack. Inside of it there are two or three pieces of metal that look like thick wires and what they do is transfer the current to the laptop. Eventually they wear out and break (common cause is having your laptop plugged to the wall continously exposing it to all sorts of power surges). Hope it helps, good luck.

Installed a rangeplus adapter on dell 1000 inspiron xp sp3 home

See if you can go into safe mode by hitting the F8 key right after the dell splash screen and right before the XP splash screen comes up. If you can get into safe mode try to uninstall the rangeplus adapter and try reinstalling again after rebooting the system normally.

Cannot connect a hp psc 2410 printer to dell inspiron 1000 laptop

Try a powered USB hub, this will boost the power in the USB curcuit.
Also ensure that in Device Manager, USB Root HUB, Power Management tab, that the option to let windows turn off the device is unchecked.

Inspiron laptop Battery won't charge

Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty. If not,
Try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty. If not,
Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

Dell inspiron 1501 work fine turn off last night now wont turn on

You mentioned trying a different battery, try a different AC adapter.

When plugging in the ac adapter to the wall, see if the POWER LED comes on on the adapter, then when you connect it to the computer, see if the LED stays on.

If the issue occurs with both AC adapters (No battery installed) then the motherboard has failed. If one ac adapter works but the other doesn't then the adapter is bad
