Before you start using it, leave it charged for few hours while the laptop is off. If the problem persists, remove the battery and boot with only the adaptor. In case, it's ok, then the problem is with the battery, perhaps it has a defect with it. You better get another replacement.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My dell inspiron mini 10 won't boot.There is just a flash of white light then a flash of amber light when I press the power button. That's it, nothing else.


Remove the main battery and try again, also! the power adapter charger should be checked for correct voltage, if okay! pull one stick of ram and test, and the second piece not forgetting to put the first one back and power up, if all this fails you will need to get it assessed.

Power light on inspiron alternates white/ amber. battery 100%


If the power light is blinking amber, it means the computer is receiving electrical power, but a device might be malfunctioning or incorrectly installed. You may have to remove and then reinstall the memory modules.

My Inspiron 1545 turns off when I unplug it from adapter, and when plugged in, the power light on front flashes four times orange and one time white repeatedly.


Does the battery for dell inspiron 1545 plug in. It maybe because the battery pack is too hot ,you can turn off the laptop,let the pc notebook and the laptop battery both cooled down.Then try turn on it to see. If still happen to the matter,it must because the wrong turn off did harm to your Inspiron 1545 laptop adapter.

Dell inspiron 1545 won't boot turn on start up


Unseat and reseat the memory in the laptop one stick at a time in each slot one at a time. Turn on the laptop after each reseat of memory.

If that doesn't work then take out the hard drive and then the dvd drive.

Turn the laptop on again and if you still can't get video on the screen then the motherboard is defective and would need to be replaced.

Dell Inspiron flashing amber power light, not charging


I would think the batteries need replacing. That happened to my Dell Latitude CPI. The batteries won't charge past about 3%, so I got new ones and that did the trick. If this is under a year old I would contact Dell about it, if it is under a year old they should replace the batteries.

Hope this helps.
