Question about Dell Inspiron 1000 Notebook

DELL INSPIRON 1000

I was using my laptop. It was plugged in and working fine. All the sudden the screen went black like it powered off ( but it was plugged in). Now it will not turn on at all. There is no lights showing or no sounds being made. Any suggestions?

    Adapter must have died. Have you also tried fully charging your battery?

Try the following:

1. Try to boot the notebook with both battery and adaptor attached.

2. Try to boot with ONLY the battery.

3. Try to boot with ONLY the adapter.

If you can't boot with only the adapter, the adapter has died. If you can't boot with only the battery, the battery is dead.

But as stated above, make sure your battery is sufficiently charged.

In case of a dead battery or adapter, check whether the device is still under warranty. Contact HP if so.

Let me know what you found out.

Greetings,

Hi. I have an Inspiron 1300. Suddenly, the screen ...


Hi there,

Black screen is often caused by a defective screen. The easiest way to determine if you have a hardware or software problem is by performing a power drain. Please follow the steps below for additional instructions.

Power Drain:
1. Turn off the computer.

2. Unplug the AC adapter from the power outlet and take out the battery from the system.

3. Now, press the power button for about 15-20 seconds.

4. Put back the battery in and plug the AC adapter.

5. Turn on the system and try observing it.
--> If power drain did not work, you need to consult a repairman to have your screen be checked for possible damage.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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.

My dell inspiron 1000 also won't turn on


Water spills are terminal for a powered up laptop....especially the older Dv1000s. I am afraid your dv1000's motherboard is fried. There is no resurrecting from that.....you need another motherboard.

Dell inspiron laptop screen issue


Hi,

First, are you sure you have the correct power supply?

Also, the lcd inverter could be going bad, consequently needing more power than it can get off the battery.

Hope this helps,

Good luck
