Question about Dell Inspiron 1100 Notebook

2 Answers

Dell dimension 1100 will not power up.

The computer was unplugged while on and now it will not turn on?

When I turn it on the only thing that happens is a yellow light turns on above the power button.

Be very simple because I am not computer smart.

I changed my graphics card now my screen wont come on at all


Hi,


This may cause by an electrical charge in the motherboard itself,Im not really sure how it affects the display of the computer.There's also a possibility that the problem is with the LCD cable or the LCD itself. Please follow this method since it usually fix such problem like that,


1.Removed the battery then unplugged the AC adapter


2.Press and hold the power button or the ON/OFF button for at least 30 seconds


3.Connect the power supply back to your computer then turn it back on.


4. Check if you will see any difference.


5. If nothing happens, try to press and hold Fn and F2 on the keyboard.


If nothing happens, there is a possibility that the problem is with the LCD or monitor itself, maybe it will need a replacement...


I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa...

My Dell 1721 laptop appears to have overheated/will not turn on.


Hi there!
For that problem of yours, you can only try a few things since its shutting down by itself,

First, Try to use just the charger to turn on the computer, if it does the same thing then unplug the charger and then this time just use the battery,

If the same thing happens then double check the charger if there is a light on it or of you have another
charger use it.

But after all of this things and the same thing happen,
You may want to check if you still have a warranty
under DELL because you'll need to replace the Motherboard of the computer.

Hope this helps!

I have dell inspiron 1100 laptop, when i turn it on fan goes on for about 15 sec,with no screen, power lights and battery lights either, i can hear sound from HDD and DVD rom, but after 25 sec everything...


Could be loose battery pack.
A bad memory chip would do this as well. Sounds like your not getting power.

Try this,

Unplug it, remove battery, wait couple minutes, press and hold the power button for 5 full long seconds, wait couple minutes more, then put battery back in securely, then plug in, turn back on.

What does it mean when lights flicker on dell inspiron 1100


Most of the time it means your battery is dead... try to unplug the battery on the bottom of the laptop and plug in the power supply. Try to turn on the computer. If it comes on, then you have a bad battery. Check eBay for a new one.

If it comes on but still flickers with the AC adapter plugged in, then you have a bad battery and it needs to be replaced.

Since you have power on your laptop. I have this questions you need to answer: 1. have you seen Dell logo after turning on the computer? 2. After turning on the computer heard beeps? If all no do this

1. Turn off laptop remove batt and use ac adapter
2. While laptop is off press Fn key + Power button to run test check if you see display test in progress. If no, wait for 5 minutes to listen to beep codes. Once heard beeps keep pressing hold on N key. If fails turn off laptop

3. While laptop is off, press hold D key + power button. Check if you will see colors display whole screen. If no this will need to replace LCD call Dell.
If see colors whole screen replace motherboard call dell.

Dell Inspiron E1505 shorting out adapter


I would replace the battery if you had for some time. Over time charging a battery will slowly not take a charge. If you tried two adapters, about the only thing is left is the battery.
