There could be several things that could cause this actually.
1. the power supply could be bad and is not giving the correct voltage to the system board and thus it shuts off.
2. The voltage on the system board is overloading the Computers Processor so it shuts down
3. The Processor has or is going bad.

If you have another power supply or can borrow one, that would be the first thing I would try. If that doesn't fix the issue, you will need to have it serviced by a professional who can trouble shoot the problem with the proper equipment.

My inspiron 1000 laptop from dell won't turn on. The adapter cord is not getting hot. I was defragging the computer when it shut off. Is this the adapter cord?

Hello there:
ok the first thing that i would suggest is to remove the battery and unplug the power cord from the computer
now check the area that the battery connects to and get a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol and clean the contact areas where the battery connects to the computer at really good and let dry
next if the computer has a reset hole on the back of it use a toothpick or somthing small and press in on the reset for 2 min and than release than press and hold in on the computers power on button for one minute and release now plug in only the power cord and turn on the computer and it should now start
than after it does put the battery in and let charge for a min of 30 min
than you should be ok from there ok
Please feel free to post a comment to me if you still have problems ok
Hope all of this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Dell inspiron 1526 has problem (plugged in ,not

Hello there:
First you will want to ensure that the power cord is fully inserted at both the laptop and all the connections for the cord and that it is getting proper power. and check tosee that the connector thatthe power cord goes into is not loose if so this will have to be repaired
next remove the battery from the computer and unplug the power cord and then press in the power button for 1 minute than if this has a reset button on the back use a toothpick or a small item and pressin on the reset button for 30 seconds
now insert the power cord (NOT THE BATTERY YET)
and turn on the computer and it should now start up if so insert the battery and leave charge for 1 hour than you should be ok from here ok
Please keep me posted on this so i can assist you if needed.
Best regards michael

Inspiron 1000 green lights come on, no fans, blank dark screen, no cursor

Check your RAM chips. A bad RAM chip will cause this symptom. Could also be a bad MB. But check the RAM first since it's a much cheaper fix. Might also just need to be reseated. After reseating, pull the battery and power cord. Press the power button for about 10 seconds. Then reinstall battery and power cord and try to reboot. If symptom persists, it's likely the MB.

Heard pop and dell vostro 1000 cut off and will not come back on

Based on the symptoms (Power light on cord is on when not connected to laptop but goes out as soon as you plug it in), the motherboard has to be replaced. YOu may call dell to ask about their out-of-warranty depot or you can call their spare parts sales dept to purchase the motherboard, then find a local tech to replace it.
