Question about Dell (0N5370) for Inspiron 5160 (64MB) (64 MB) Graphic Card

1 Answer

My Dell Inspiron 5160 won t turn on

I set my computer on stand-by mode like I usually do and the next morning it was completely off. When I went to try and turn it on by pressing the power button, the three lights in the front flashed but nothing started to power up. I disconnected and reconnected the power supply and the three lights flashed again but that's it.

What happened? How do I fix it? Thanks for any and all help!!

Re: My Dell Inspiron 5160 won t turn on

Hello viceaddict6,

That model is known for this problem and Dell is aware of it. I believe they will replace your motherboard and AC adapter free of charge. Tell them your problem with the lights, and that motherboard is most likely not getting the powere it needs.

Below is the information to contact them; they are open 24/7. The express code they are referring to is a sticker that is taped to the laptop. My personal experience with them is good, they usually have someone drive out or come by within the same day or next day and replace the hardware with a smile.

If you plan to change the graphics card, then go in for a card that has a lot of dedicated RAM. Not shared. You may be able to do with 2 GB RAM on your PC. Ask the dealer specifically.

Palit Geforce 8800gt 1Gig Glitches + BSOD

Nvidia's recommendations for the 8800GT are 26 Amps (I think) on the 12V rail... Although you would think 20 Amps would be enough, my next step would be to uninstall the video card driver again, get yourself a copy of a program called Driver Cleaner dot net, run the program in safe mode to completely remove all of the Nvidia driver, then reboot into Windows, download the latest WHQL driver for your card from nvidia's website, and see if that fixes it. If not, either try the card in a system with a more powerful power supply, or get a more powerful power supply, and see if your error goes away.
