Dell inspiron 1520 won't turn on.


Remove the battery from its compartment on the side of your Dell Inspiron laptop computer.


Remove the power adapter from its plug on the side of the Dell Inspiron (if your laptop is currently plugged into a wall outlet).


Press down and hold the "Power" button on the laptop for one to two minutes. This will dispel the excess electrical current that is built up inside the laptop.


Put the battery back inside the compartment of your Dell Inspiron.


Plug your power adapter back into the side of the Dell Inspiron. Press "Power." Your laptop computer will now turn on.


hope this helps

Wall plug not working


Hi Gabriel,

Try another wall plug first. If still no good, remove the battery from your laptop and try plugging in with no battery. If still no good, test your laptop power supply with a multimeter to see if it is putting out the proper voltage. If you can't do that, buy a replacement power supply. Many stores sell universal power supplies that come with tips to fit most laptops. If it still doesn't work, take the laptop to a service shop and have it checked out.

Hope this helps!

My dell laptop dont turn on


Is there a green light on your power supply that plugs in the wall? If not, the power supply is dead or there's a problem on the motherboard.
To troubleshoot, unplug the laptop from the power supply, unplug the power supply from the wall. Now, plug the power supply into the wall, you should see a green or blue light. If there's a plastic spot for the light but no light is coming on, replace the power supply - better to try a known working on before spending the money on a new replacement first.
If there is a light, plug it into the laptop. If the light goes out when you plug it in, there could be a motherboard problem and the board needs to be replaced or the power jack is damaged and you need a professional to replace it.
If the light is on the whole time, but laptop does not turn on, this could also mean that the board is still bad.
Regardless if it doesn't power up with a good power supply it is usually a motherboard problem and the board needs to be replaced.
Check with dell to see if its under warranty and they will send the parts needed and a tech to replace if it is. You can also ask about purchasing a warranty so your money is better spent to keep your laptop alive and put it towards something useful for the lngevity of the system instead of just paying for the part and a tech.

My lap top will not turn on anymore... its plugged into the wall and no power what so ever.


If there is no power or lights etc, then first we must suspect the Wall Power Supply, you are going to have to try a replacement one to see if thats it, or using a meter check for voltage from adapter. Also check in another wall socket. Also take battery out, then try adapter, see if battery was influencing anything.

No power to the laptop


You have a malfunctioning powere supply. To test the power supply, you can use an amp meter to check how many amps it puts out to see if it is working ok. Or if you can simply connect it to another laptop with same model if available. These power supply have an output of 19 volts by the way. You can also use another power supply if avialable to see if its indeed the power supply.

Power supply light is red


This issue occurs when the external power supply has detected a fault. The power supply has several built-in safeguards to help prevent damage to either the console or to the power supply itself. The power supply will turn itself off if one of the following conditions is true:
  • There is too much current
  • The voltage is too high
  • The temperature of the power supply is too high
Under these conditions, the light on the power supply turns red.

Step 1: Make sure that the power supply is cool loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); The red light may indicate that the power supply is too hot or that it has already overheated. If the power supply light is red, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that your Xbox 360 console is turned off.
  2. Disconnect your Xbox 360 Power Supply from your Xbox 360 console and from the wall socket.

    For more information about how to disconnect the Xbox 360 power supply, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 906205 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906205/ ) How to connect and disconnect the Xbox 360 power supply
  3. Let the power supply cool for several hours in a well-ventilated space. Do not connect the Xbox 360 power supply to the console or to the wall socket during this time.
  4. After the power supply has cooled for several hours, reconnect the Xbox 360 Power Supply to the console and to the wall socket.
If the power supply light is still red, go to step 2. Step 2: Make sure that the power supply is plugged in correctly loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); If the power cord is plugged in to an extension cord, a surge protector, or a power strip, the current or voltage that flows through the power supply may not be correct. Make sure that the power supply is plugged directly into a working wall outlet.
Step 3: Plug the power supply into a different wall socket loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); Try a different wall socket. Ideally, plug the power supply into a wall outlet that is elsewhere in the house.

Hp 1315 all in one


The all-in-one product does not turn on If the all-in-one product does not turn on at all, try the following actions in order to determine the cause:
  1. Unplug the power supply from the wall outlet.
  2. Unplug the power supply from the back of the printer.
  3. Remove the product cable from any power strips or surge suppressors, and plug it directly into a grounded (three-prong) wall outlet.
  4. Wait at least 20 seconds, then, plug in the supply back into the wall outlet.
  5. Plug in the power supply back into the printer.
  6. Press the power button to turn the printer on.
  7. For models that have an external power supply module, verify that the power supply module is plugged in correctly. Some power supply modules have a green LED built into the connector end or on the power supply module. This LED will be lit if power is present. If the LED is not lit, replace the power supply module.
  8. Plug the power cord into a different electrical outlet. If the all-in-one product has an ADF with an external cable plugged into the back of the product, use the following procedure:
    1. Turn off the unit.
    2. Unplug the power cable from the wall outlet.
    3. Unplug the ADF cable from the back of the product.
    4. Plug the ADF cable to the back of the product.
    5. Plug in the power cable to the wall outlet, and turn on the power.
      1. If no change, the problem is not the ADF.
      2. If the problem clears, turn off the all-in-one, unplug the power cable, and reconnect the ADF.
      3. If the error returns, the ADF is defective. Contact HP Customer Care to get the ADF replaced.
  9. Disconnect the computer parallel cable from the back of the all-in-one product and try to turn on the product again. The computer might be grounding out through the parallel port. If this corrects the issue, check the grounding of the computer and outlet.
