Question about Computers & Internet

Dell xps m1710 no power, no codes flash.

In the middle of a movie it died. Pressing power only: green power button light flickers, and light on new ac power adapter also flickers, then both die. No 'flashing codes' when Fn and Power pressed. Up until this happened a new battery was purchased. Prior to this final act the computer has been powering off by itself and on power up(POST) it asked that the F1 button be pressed to continue due to computer overheating it shut down.
Any suggestions on how to get it up and running again? Removed all CRU's except can't get modem off, plugged power in from wall but same reaction as above.

Hi,
If you were getting the error message that the computer was overheating, you were lucky that it kept on going still . I would suggest to get the chassis fan replaced and then check.Most likely the chassis fan has died leading to the computer not starting .The extended overheating might even have caused a motherboard failure. As the AC adapter and power button light flickers

Thanks for using Fixya

HI there!

A amber light power button means that the
distribution of the power is not working properly,

And as you have said the battery won't charge anymore,

Usually what fixes that problem of yours is a BIOS
update but from what i see you cannot fix it with a BIOS update anymore.

And on what they said yes your gonna need to replace motherboard because it's not detecting the charger anymore if you can still access BIOS setup go to battery info you will see that the ac adapter is unknow.

So for the fix of your problem there you'll need to get a motherboard for your computer.

Hope this helps!

Dell XPS M1710 Monitor flickering.....


I do not think that this a driver problem
It is probably a peripheral problem or at worst a power supply problem
However try and switch monitors first.

Dell m1710 xps will not boot, grey screen only. battery light, num lock lights work and hd lighyt flashes momentarly, then goes off.


Are you certain the laptop is not booting? I had one the other day, customer thought it wasnt booting, but it was the LCD screen that was bad. She had only a gray screen too. Something to try, with the screen up, put your hand on the top of the LCD (fingers on the plastics on the back side, thumb on the screen at about the same position) about 4-5 inches from the left edge and squeeze gently. Does the screen change at all, vertical or horizontal color lines? If it really is NOT booting, try F12 when first powering up and if you get to the boot menu, choose diagnostics, run them and see if you get any errors.

Laptop battery charge indicator flashing amber and green


If the battery is hot from being used in your computer or being in a hot environment, the battery may not charge when you connect the computer to an electrical outlet.The battery is too hot to start charging if the batter15.jpg light flashes alternately orange and green. Disconnect the computer from the electrical outlet and allow the computer and the battery to cool to room temperature. Then connect the computer to an electrical outlet to continue charging the battery.
