    Did it fail while you were using it or when you last turned it on? You say it has no sound but does it beep when it turns on? Please provide a little more detail. Thanks,

This sounds like video card. Can be ether drivers or card it self. Try booting in to safe mode by pressing f8 on boor and if it does not work or it does not show option on screen when you do this it means it is issue with card it self. Hope this helps.

I have a Dell Latitude D610. The battery was dead (got the 4 blinking amber lights and the green light flashing once, then cycling), so I replaced the battery. The new battery has the lights on the bottom...


From the description, sounds like you have two failures, both concerning the mother board.

1. The connection to the motherboard for the battery is no longer good. Replace the mother board. The points of failure that you have given so far and has not fixed the issue. Battery fully charged, seated well, no change, mother board.

2. Laptop will come on with AC adapter attached but will not boot up; mother board. There is a built in test that you can run, from a powered down state press FN + Power button, this puts this into a diagnostic state. If it does not go into this diagnostic; mother board. The diagnostic is stored in the BIOS, which is a part of the mother board.

3. If the diagnostic runs note any error codes that it gives. They will be in the form off XXXX-XXXX or XXXX:XXXX, where the X's represent a letter or a number. These can be used for further trouble shooting.

No panel lights, no fan, flashing front left light


the blinking lights means power issue. If you already plugged the computers power cable directly to the wall and stll get the blinking power light then your probably looking at a bad power supply in the computer.
Just for measures go into the system and if you have a video card remove it and start the system up. Also take out the memory stick and put them back in just incase during the move some components got loose. Put on your detective hat and check all connects. if problem still persist replace the power supply. In Computers terms thats called the PSU (power supply unit)

My sound card doesn't work in my dell since we switched towers we put my mother board and guts into a differnt tower now says n sound card can anyone tell me how to get a sound card or a free download ?


You switched everything,including the hard drive with the windows on it ,correct? If so , then either the sound card is lose from the slot, you accicently disconnected a wire,or left one off for the sound?

Pover up trouble


sounds like something is drawing down on your 12 volt supply drives or on board regulators. Try it without the drives connectged, and see if you can get the system to boot up(you'll just get a notice that your drives are unavailable, but you'll already know that, right?

got backup for your Dell?

Intel emachine t3828


Geeze, after working on hardware for 27 years i love the short circut dummie. Anyway yes, it's the motherboard / yes the green light will still come on on that model and quite a few other models. Dont worry about repairing / i.e. removing components on the motherboard, it's a fruitless endevor but a great way to waste time. A motherboard for that model will cost about 100-150 bucks / easy replacement. It's actually rare for both the power supply and mother board to go out on a tower/mini tower type system. Older laptops had that type of prob. Those emachines were **** for the mostet part. On the other hand Gateway has really gone up in quality and i have been quite impressed with them in the last few years...

Computer won't start


Can you see a green light on located on the mother board ? I had the same problem with mine right after the warrranty was off, The mother board failed, But you should make sure thats it first by making sure everything Inside of the computer is tight and secure.Unplug and make sure there is no power on and unplugged,Before you touch anything inside your computer discharge any static electricity by touching the metal on the inside of the tower. The Memory modules Make sure that they are pushed in securely in there slots and video card is Pushed in and tight, and any other extras you may have plugged into it, After you do all that put everything back and try to reboot see if that get you up and going. If not let me know I can Help You fix it or repair it myself if you would like, just leave message here or email me. bear350cid@yahoo.com Happy Holidays
