DELL INSPIRON M5030 frusturating issue (tried almost everything)


A) How did the Power Button Module get broken?

B) Error indicates losing data and unable to leave Hibernation Mode.

It's a long shot, but let's see if you can reset BIOS Settings back to default, without being able to see the BIOS Setup screen.....

Remove the AC adapter (Charger)
Remove the Battery.

Remove the RTC Battery. (Real Time Clock. Same as CMOS Battery, but with a new name)
Oh, excuse me.....Dell = Coin-Cell Battery

Power Button Module flat flex cable installed in motherboard connector, press the Power On button, hold it down for a count of 10 seconds. Let go.
Do this same procedure two more times.

Reinstall Coin-Cell Battery
Reassemble laptop.
Reinstall Battery, THEN AC adapter, and THEN plug AC adapter into power.

Let's see if we can revert the BIOS Setup settings, back to the factory default settings.

C) Dell refuses to help you since your warranty expired.
Not sticking up for Dell, but Really?

You're telling me they're not going to take your laptop, and fix it for a specific amount of money?

"No thank you Mr.Robertson, we're a laptop manufacturer, and money is of no consequence!"
We get by just knowing people out there like our laptops.
That, food stamps and the occasional barbecue Gates puts on at his place, gets us by."

Right.

Did you know I'm Brad Pitt? Angelina is in one of her moods again, so I come on here.

(Just trying to be funny)

D) LED lights 2 & 3 stay on

LED 2 is the Harddrive Activity LED.
Should stay solid as the harddrive isn't active

LED 3 is the Battery Status LED.
Solid amber indicates ON, or Standby.

Did you follow Anti-Static Procedures, during the Power Button Module replacement?

Plus, I'm willing to bet the Power Button Module, didn't come from Dell. Another reason they would not want to work on the laptop.
They can't guarantee the replacement part is good.
(They can, but there are too many liability issues)

Power Button Module being broken, is what I'm concentrating on at the moment.

This was the start of the problem. From it all other problems have issued.

The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.
The carbon contact Power On switch on that Power Button Module.

http://www.parts-people.com/index.php?action=item&id=9908

Was it broken so it stayed pressed to the on position?

Also need to know the full extent of damage caused by the Power Button Module being broken.
In my estimate it took a pretty hard hit in that area, to break that board.

Lastly for now; The Power Button Module has a FFC.
Flat Flex Cable.
Is it replaced back in the SAME position? Not flipped over?
It will go in either way. Right side up, or flipped over.

Please post back in a Comment.

I have an EVESHAM MS-17188B Laptop. Stuck in sleep mode! The Problem is when ever I turn it on, the power and sleep mode light is active. But nothing else, the screen stays blank, and cant hear any fans...


First advice would have been to remove battery, but since you did that, I'd say that your laptop is stuck in hybrid-sleep, or the old hibernate. Try pressing the power button for 10-15 seconds, the laptop should go off, then try presing the power button again, for normal boot.

When i turn it on it wont show desk top it stays on a black screen


Does your laptop have its lights on the keyboard even if your screen is black? If it is , try to remove the cables and battery of the laptop. Press and hold the power button for 8 seconds. Then reinsert the cables and battery on the laptop. Turn on the laptop, and if there is no light on screen & keyboard, it means that the power supply or the motherboard has trouble. That is the time to contact Dell support for possible repair or replacement. Otherwise if the keyboard has lights but the screen is still black, that would be a video card problem since the LCD screen is not a separate entity. Just make sure if it has the power button on the screen, it is turned on. That instance would need a video card replacement...

My screen doesnt work.


I suggest you to perform these steps.
Test the AC adapter Follow the steps below to determine whether the problem is related to the AC adapter or your notebook system board.
  1. Remove the battery and disconnect all external devices from the computer.
  2. Hold the Power button for several seconds, with all power sources removed. This drains residual power from the system, and may correct many problems.
  3. Connect the AC adapter to a wall outlet and plug the other end into the computer.
  4. Press the Power button to start the notebook PC.
If the notebook does not start or the display is blank then check the power indicator light or power socket LED. I suggest you to connect the notebook to external monitor and check whether its working or not. Then please perform the harddrive self test also.
