Question about Computers & Internet
Is the letter A (Caps Lock) Led light flashes? If it does it means there is a problem with the memory. If the battery light flashes it means:
1. Flashing blue: The battery is almost fully charged.
2. Flashing amber: The battery charge is low
I suspect your laptop is experiencing a overheating issue if it turns off automatically after turning it on.
I would suggest to do the following 1st:
1. Remove the battery
2. Try to turn on the computer using only the ac adapter
3. Check if it will still shut down, If not it means the battery causes the problem.
2nd: (Put the battery back)
1.Press and hold the "Fn" key then turn on the computer while holding the"Fn" key.
2. Check if there would be a display on the screen
3. Check the Lock Led Lights (A, 1, arrow down) or (Caps lock, Numlock, scroll lock) if they are flashing
* Tell me what are the lock led lights that are lit or flashing.

Tips for a great answer:
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
