Power supply stopped working

I received my Dell computer for Christmas 2006. The power supply quit working in August and my husband (who is a mechanic) was convinced that the power supply had a fuse in it and attempted to work on it making it's warranty void. I purchased another Dell power supply block from a local Computer Company. Today, this one quit. Is there a problem with the power supply itself or do I have a problem with my laptop??

Most of the time you need to replace the mother board as well as the power box, it shorts the mother board out.

Main Menu and lock cymbol keep coming on screen. How do I get rid of them?


Wendy ohlsen, I know you really like your E173FP, but it is quite "old" in CCFL back-lit lcd display years. It could be 4 to 6 years old. Retrevo .com lists unit as "time to retire" ,, Please reply back with the "date of manufacture" from rear of unit. Tell me if unit has a "lay on floor" power adapter or just a plain old "line cord" that plugs into the wall. When "strange stuff" starts to appear on screen, problem is most likely inside the unit on the power supply board. Let me know if your husband or boyfriend can assist you with an internal visual investigation of unit's power supply board. See YOUTUBE video clips of repairs being done on typical Dell units first. Pay particular attention to BAD CAPACITORS being replaced with new ones!!! 12fixlouie

Power button


if it is the power button itself you would have to purchase the entire front panel, unless you can find some parts somewhere, but if there is no power to the system at all, you can check the four diagnostic lights, they are either on the back of the system or under the front flap, if none of those are on then you are more than likely looking at replacing the power supply and maybe the motherboard, you can check the power cord to make sure its ok, swap with the cord on the monitor they are both exactly the same.
