SOURCE: Hav a pavilion a510n HP

I had a similar problem. Moved a 4-year-old desktop. Got the flashing light and no start. Quick fix is to unplug unit, open up case and unplug the large power connector on the motherboard. (On mine this is marked P1 and has a lock tab on one side that must be held in while unplugging.) Plug the 110-volt power and THEN plug the connector back into the motherboard. Button the case back up and all will be well until the next time you shut the power off to the computer.

The cause of this problem is likely that the battery on the motherboard is nearly dead. The flashing light is a warning to replace the battery. (It would have been nice if they would have put this into the user manual.) When you disconnect the power as described above, you interrupt the low-battery circuit. Replace the battery and all should be well.

SOURCE: Sleep Mode Lockup on Dell Inspirion 530 w/ Vista

Try hitting the "Windows" key on your keyboard to bring it out of sleep mode. The "Windows" key is generally found on the bottom row of the keyboard, near the Alt and Ctrl keys, and it has no letters on it, just the Windows logo. That key brings my Windows Vista machines out of sleep mode when other keys won't.

As for the power button, anytime you need to force a computer to turn off, you can press and hold the power button to do so. Usually, you need to hold the power button for 5-10 seconds and it will shut down. Use this option with caution, as it turns the computer off without running through the shutdown process and can cause you to lose data.

Hope this helps.

Your cpu might have died. As the computer is starting tap F8 and choose last known good configuration to see if you can get it started.

I have the same problem with one of my 7100's I can get the screen to come on if I hold the delete key when powering on.Sometimes takes more than one try... and doesn't fix the problem. F2 will take you to the BIOS to see if it is detecting your hard drive. Hope this helps....

Computer turn on, but when it does it won't POST


It seems like a motherboard issue. It heats up, thus is not able to turn on continuously. You may need to check internal parts embeded on the motherboard llike the fan and processor before you could know what needs replacement.

Dell Inspiron 530 I turns on and nothing happens


1.) If when hitting the power button, ABSOLUTELY nothing happens, no fans come on, nothing- You need a new power supply most likely. I see this all the time in my shop. Here's the bad news- Dell likes to use their own special power supplies, so a normal one may not even fit in the case. If that is the case, then I'm sorry to say Dell likes to charge over $100 easily for a new one.

2.) Fans come on, lights come on, but no screen. This can mean any number of things. Bad VGA cable (or DVI), bad RAM, bad mobo, even a bad PCI card. time to start troubleshooting. Change what parts you can, remove any PCI cards that are not needed, remove one RAM card then the other, etc....
