When my PC is booting up it displays a warning about 'low voltage'. It is a Dell home computer that is several years old but has been excellent. Do I have to replace something electrical?

Hi! If you are using a surge protector, try to plug the machine directly to the wall then check if you will get the same error message. If yes then try to check if the cmos battery is securely placed on the motherboard, if yes then try to reseat the cmos battery. If all things fails try to call dell support and ask for a cmos battery replacement if your system is in warranty then they will replace it.Hope this helps...

Dell inspiron said battery low plug into charger, when plugged in charger light goes out and laptop will not power on, why?


Remove the main battery from the laptop and try power, if it works the battery is bad, if no change the charger needs to be checked for proper voltage. Since your laptop is less than a year old you should have warranty for up to the year, check this asp and find your paperwork should verify.

Dell computer does not boot up - I have a Dell


First I would press (I think) F11 for the boot device. In the Dell boot menu, you will have the option of running diagnostics. Try that.
You can see the Dell splash screen on startup and you can see the options letting you choose what to do. So, you can be pretty sure your CPU. motherboard, and video are OK. The next suspect might be the hard drive or the files on the hard drive. But if you don't get a "no boot device" message, it sees the hard drive. I've also experienced a booting problem if the CD goes bad. So--first run the diagnostics. Then open the case and disconnect the cable from the CD and try booting.
I am assuming (perhaps incorrectly) that you have pushed F8 key after computer startup to see if you can start the computer in safe mode.

My several year old PC will not. Display powers


I just went through this thursday with a Dell inspiron. I was in the middle of a system restore and it just shut down before it even had a chance to begin the restore. I unplugged it and removed the battery the harddrive and the processor heat sink. I cleaned under the heat sing on top of the processor and the bottom of the sink itself. I reassembled the unit and it came back to life. Give it a shot. Try the battery and unplugging a couple extra times if necessary.

Low battery warning


That is because while a computer is in sleep mode, it is still using power to keep the memory. The battery is only used when the computer is turned off. You should replace the battery as soon as you can in order to keep your computer running properly.

Dell Inspiron 9400 display goes blank after a few minutes


If the issue occurs in the safe mode, then I'm suspecting a failure of the LCD backlight. (It warms up and quits) Also see if video stays on using an external monitor. If it does, then the LCD is most likely failing.

If video goes out on an external monitor as well, then the Video card is failing due to overheating. Make sure all vents are free of dust (Clean with canned compressed air) and the all fans are functional (Run the fan test in diagnostics) If fans check up, then video card is failure point. If fans fail diags, replace affected fan 1st
