No power only plug light and battery light is on


The lights are indicators of which operation does your laptop operates.
1. Power indicator is lighten to green meaning you are in the mode of charging your power.and if the power indicator turns to orange meaning you are now using battery power or the charging is finished.
2. Reading indicator is blinking meaning your laptop is currently processing but if the Reading indicator is not blinking and made a static light then your system is in hang up or not reading the processes.
3. Wireless indicator is blinking or lighten then you are in the a wireless mode connection. Also the bluetooth and Infrared connectivity.
So please check which light indicator is lighten when you on your laptop.

I have problem with my vostro 1510 wreless, by switching the wireless and bluetooth key on, only the blutooth devise is turn on.

The Dell QuickSet utility Wireless options can cause these issues.

There is a setting to always deactivate on battery. Make sure this is not set up. The correct setting would be Always active on battery or Always On, or no power saving options for Wi-Fi. Depending on the version of QuickSet which you have.

It is known to glitch when power is removed from the machine while the wireless is in use.

Please let us know if you have any futher questions. If this information was helpful, please take a moment to rate the solution. Thank you.

The most likely problem is that your Hard Drive has Died.

If you can readily access another Laptop HDD, try it and see.

Other than that, I'd say the Motherboard has decieded to give up the Ghost.

I am aboutsure about the question, but what i understood is wireless switch location

First close your laptop, then look the front view where the speaker is located, From the left

1.Speakers Left and right speakers deliver stereo audio

2 Power indicator Lights up when the computer is on.

3 Battery indicator Lights up when the battery is being charged
4 Bluetooth communication
button/indicator (for
selected models)
Press to enable/disable the Bluetooth
function. Indicates the status of Bluetooth
communication (optional).

5 Wireless communication
Press to enable/disable the wireless function.
Indicates the status of wireless LAN
communication (optional).

6 Line-in jack Accepts audio line-in devices (e.g., audio CD
player, stereo walkman).

7 Mic-in jack Accepts inputs from external microphones.

So your wireless switch is the 5th one from the left. Locate it and turn on the wireless, and try to connet to the router.
Try this, hope it may work,
