DELL INSPIRON M5030 frusturating issue (tried almost everything)

A) How did the Power Button Module get broken?

B) Error indicates losing data and unable to leave Hibernation Mode.

It's a long shot, but let's see if you can reset BIOS Settings back to default, without being able to see the BIOS Setup screen.....

Remove the AC adapter (Charger)
Remove the Battery.

Remove the RTC Battery. (Real Time Clock. Same as CMOS Battery, but with a new name)
Oh, excuse me.....Dell = Coin-Cell Battery

Power Button Module flat flex cable installed in motherboard connector, press the Power On button, hold it down for a count of 10 seconds. Let go.
Do this same procedure two more times.

Reinstall Coin-Cell Battery
Reassemble laptop.
Reinstall Battery, THEN AC adapter, and THEN plug AC adapter into power.

Let's see if we can revert the BIOS Setup settings, back to the factory default settings.

C) Dell refuses to help you since your warranty expired.
Not sticking up for Dell, but Really?

You're telling me they're not going to take your laptop, and fix it for a specific amount of money?

"No thank you Mr.Robertson, we're a laptop manufacturer, and money is of no consequence!"
We get by just knowing people out there like our laptops.
That, food stamps and the occasional barbecue Gates puts on at his place, gets us by."


Did you know I'm Brad Pitt? Angelina is in one of her moods again, so I come on here.

(Just trying to be funny)

D) LED lights 2 & 3 stay on

LED 2 is the Harddrive Activity LED.
Should stay solid as the harddrive isn't active

LED 3 is the Battery Status LED.
Solid amber indicates ON, or Standby.

Did you follow Anti-Static Procedures, during the Power Button Module replacement?

Plus, I'm willing to bet the Power Button Module, didn't come from Dell. Another reason they would not want to work on the laptop.
They can't guarantee the replacement part is good.
(They can, but there are too many liability issues)

Power Button Module being broken, is what I'm concentrating on at the moment.

This was the start of the problem. From it all other problems have issued.

The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.
The carbon contact Power On switch on that Power Button Module.

Was it broken so it stayed pressed to the on position?

Also need to know the full extent of damage caused by the Power Button Module being broken.
In my estimate it took a pretty hard hit in that area, to break that board.

Lastly for now; The Power Button Module has a FFC.
Flat Flex Cable.
Is it replaced back in the SAME position? Not flipped over?
It will go in either way. Right side up, or flipped over.

Please post back in a Comment.

My lenovo lap top screen stays black even if the computer is on..

hi msinon, connect another external screen to the IBM-machine to check if simply the screen is broken.
If that does not help, remove the RAM-memory module (see instructions or manual), retry booting up without it, if still not lucky, the mainboard is broken and you will have to exchange it or get another new machine.
Think of transferring the old harddisk to the new laptop or keeping it as an external back-up source(you will have to buy an USB to SATA adaptor plus harddisk case) sa you can use it like a flash drive...

good luck

Hi, my laptop's monitor is broken, I mean the plastic top cover is broken by the corner where the hinges are to open and close. The monitor is still in place but I fear the monitor to come apart any moment...

If it is a minor crack you can actually use Krazy Glue. Use it sparingly and let it dry completely. Be careful not to glue the hinge in place.

Another option is to search for a replacement on eBay. Just search for "Acer Extensa 5420-5687" It would be best to have an assembly manual for this task. Ask the seller of the monitor for help or check Acer's website.
I recommend using a digital camera and taking pictures as you go to make sure you can put it back together correctly. Make sure you have the correct size screw driver and be very careful not to strip the screw heads.

Last resort is to send it in for repair but that may cost more than replacing it.

If this helps please vote for this solution.

Dark dark screen

that rubbery nipple when its pressed in is what allows the screen to go into sleep mode. Sounds like it might be stuck halfway in between. Go ahead and try to take out the top cover with the rubbery nipple on it. See if the screen lights up like normal, if it does then you know the rubbery nipple is the problem and just needs to be readjusted so it doesn't get stuck.

If it still stays dim then its either the lcd or the inverter that is bad.

The key cover came of one of the keys on my Gateway Laptop Model 6737. How do I get it to stay on?

put it back is easy like puting legos, but if it doesn't stay in place it could mean you broke "this is the mistake every 1 makes by acusing you" lol

it could mean the under key holders are broken
in which you need a new key. I suggest you remove just the top, just the top, just the top of the key next to it and see the diffrence, see what's missing between the two and then you realise what's happening.

Reinstalling a key cover

I know these can be a bit frustrating, but you're just going to have to keep working with it untill it snaps in properly. Unfortunately there is no diagram for these, if you're unsure that you have it together right, I suggest taking another key off to see exactly how it goes together.
