Hello,

this is a power related issue, therefore, you need check all the parts of the laptop that as to do with power, such as; power adapter and battery.

Remove the battery and turn the laptop on with the adapter, if it does not power, test the laptop with another adapter, if it still does not power, then the fault is from the power IC/part of the motherboard inside the laptop.

The problem has nothing to do with formatting, because it not a software problem, but an hardware problem.

Take the laptop to an expert so that he/she can help you use meter to read the power part of the motherboard so as to fix the problem.

Lastly, is very important that you check your power adapter, even if the battery is not good, the power adapter should be able to power the laptop, and if it does not, then you need to test it with another adapter and if it still does not work, then the fault id from the power part of the motherboard.

Take care.

Hello. Remove the battery and remove the AC plug, if you have it plugged in. Leave the battery out for two full minutes and then reinstall it. Then turn it back on. This maneuver will bring it back to the factory settings. If it still won't start and it is under warranty, go to Dell.com
Regards, Joe

Dell inspiron 1520 won't turn on.


Remove the battery from its compartment on the side of your Dell Inspiron laptop computer.


Remove the power adapter from its plug on the side of the Dell Inspiron (if your laptop is currently plugged into a wall outlet).


Press down and hold the "Power" button on the laptop for one to two minutes. This will dispel the excess electrical current that is built up inside the laptop.


Put the battery back inside the compartment of your Dell Inspiron.


Plug your power adapter back into the side of the Dell Inspiron. Press "Power." Your laptop computer will now turn on.


hope this helps

Dell Inspiron 1420 switch off while on at Internet site and it will not start up again when pressing the on button.


you can first try to connect your laptop to an AC power source via the ac adapter, if it fails to charge the battery, then it must be your battery died. try a relacement dell inspiron 1420 battery,which usually lasts longer and is compatibale with your dell and costs much less than the original one!

My dell inspiron 1420 looked as if the battery were running out, as the little battery picture showed a little x, but when I go to charge the battery, nothing happens. Now my computer won't even turn on. ...


Try to use a USB charger for the battery. It is around 20$ and you can plug the battery in that charger.
It's is just a temporary solution. Also it could be great if you could test with the same type of battery but from another laptop.
If you need further assistance, or further questions just leave a comment. Thank you for using FixYa. Cheers

Hi justlai33


Not to worry, it is a normal process when any laptop is started. It first check if it is connected to power and starts charging if connected to power.

As far as battery life status is good and fine, you can continue working on your laptop.

You will get a pop of notification when the battery life about to end, till then you can work with out any tension.

Thank you

Inspiron 1420 dell says plugged in not charging


Check power adapter’s DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Bettery problem


Hi,


It could be the battery is already degraded. If the battery is more than 2 yrs. old you could check the battery health meter and see if you need to replace it. Hope this helps
