Re: Dell 5100 laptop

If you can hear the one beep sound when booting that means your laptop's system is in good condition. try putting it in the external monitor if still you cant see anything both in external and the LCD just install the old keyboard and press the Fn then external monitor... hope this helps...

Hi, i can help you. plz connect your laptop to an external monitor. if you can see your monitor without problem in that monitor, it should be the problem with the LCD. i think your laptop have an international warranty, plz contact your laptop brand local support team...

My wife spilled tea on her Dell Inspiron 5100. Now when attempt to start up goes to a black screen with blinking cursor and beeps incessantly. What does this mean, and can I fix it?

add milk!
well spilling tea on the keyboard has most likely fritzed the circuit The beeping and blinking, depending on the number of beeps relates to no monitor and no keyboard.wich seems to fit your description of the fault without having to count
As for fixing it yourself? I wouldn't attempt it.. too many levels to wade through and an expensive fix. anyway. cheaper to buy a new one
Try making a claim for a replacement on your home insurance as a fusion claim. ge3t a new laptop. Perhaps the brands that was used at the Olympics that can sustain dropping and water spills. Vario I think it was.

Keyboard is typing very slow help please laptop acer5100

Try going to your control panel and clicking on accessibility options . See if your filter key box is checked , if it is, uncheck it. Another reason is a dirty keyboard. Keys can get stuck over time so just replace the keyboard for $10 with a new one, check on ebay for a brand new replacement

Dell 5100 cmos battery replacement

The CMOS battery most likely is a button battery, probably a CR2032 lithium battery. The battery could be located on the bottom of the laptop behind one of the panels or under the keyboard. There is no MOP, when you remove the battery it may default to the factory defaults (depends how long the battery has been removed) and you need to go into the BIOS setting to set the Date and Time etc.
