Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook

2 Answers

My laptop screen will not turn on.

I have a Dell Inspiron B130 . A little while ago I started to notice a little problem with it. Whenever I go to plug it in to charge while I was using it, the screen will turn black. Sometimes a few moments after I plug it into charge. Though I was being stupid and ignored that problem. 
Now this morning I went to turn on my wonderful laptop, you can hear the usual sounds and such. Though the screen is absolutely black. 
Is there anyway I can fix this? Mind you I'm a teen so hopefully a fix that is affordable.

    I have to be honest that I do not know a lot about computers. Though should I take a look inside to see if anything is loose? Or look into replacing the inverter?

    If I decide to take it to someone. Does anyone recommend any stores they recommend for me to take it too? Since my warrenty is up with Dell.




    Also lets say I wanted to replace my laptop one day, could I just take the memory out and put it into a new laptop? Or will I have to buy the same model to do such a thing?

I know this laptop very well and I've experienced this problem. Hopefully it's just a bad inverter, which will cost you $59.99 plus about $10 shipping.It's also very easy to replace.The bad news is that with this laptop, theres a problem on the motherboard that also causes this problem.Not so easy to fix.Please use this link to read my article.

Sometimes, this happens when the connectors inside the LCD screen come loose. another issue is the motherboard, where it's all connected. believe it or not, sometimes just opening and closing the screen, can make this go away.

I have a Dell Inspiron B130 which has divice status lights on the lower left side of the keyboard. The third from the left is blinking red/orange but the computer seems to be working OK. I thought that...


Having read what others are saying it seems to be a very common problem with this laptop, you can try to ignore it or run your laptop direct from the mains WITHOUT the battery plugged in.
Good luck

My Inspiron B130 laptop wont charge. i have to wiggle the charger around, and sometimes that doesnt work.


Either the plug on the laptop is bad, or the charger cord is faulty. If you have a friend that has the same charger you can use it to find out which.

My Dell Inspiron B130 will not turn on


The battery is critically low, indicating that it is not getting a charge from the AC adapter. If the system will not power on from the AC adapter, then the motherboard power connection is suspect.

Motherboards are about $100 on EBay

Inspiron B130 shuts down after about 5 seconds


Sounds like a bad AC adapter not charging the system. If a known good adapter has the same issue (Or this adapter works on another system) then it is a motherboard replacement

Red Battery light flashes when computer is turned off


The reason the battery indicator would flash is because its reaching the end of its useable life. Meaning that it will become harder for the battery to keeps its charge until it finally doesn't keep a charge at all. best thing to do is when your not using your laptop unhook the charger to it so its not always charging the battery.

To fix the problem though you'll have to get another battery unfortunately.

My Inspiron B130 will not charge,even with a new battery. I plug in the power cord, will not charge still. No power light, nothing


just had the same problem- the socket where you plug in the adapter had shorted out-needed to be resodered-no big~100$
BUT my ac adapter was bad as well- may have caused the short (they are cheap on ebay)

Dell B130 won't charge


From my experience with 3 DELL laptops, the problem was resolved by replacing the system board. Apparently the port the AC adaptor plugs into becomes damaged (provided you have determined it is not a battery needing replacemnet or a defective AC adaptor) and that cannot be fixed without replacing the whole system board.
