Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a Dell Inspiron B130 which has divice status lights on the lower left side of the keyboard. The third from the left is blinking red/orange but the computer seems to be working OK. I thought that light has something to do with battery/charging. The computer is used primarily on AC and the battery is only (7) mo old. What is the light trying to tell me?

Having read what others are saying it seems to be a very common problem with this laptop, you can try to ignore it or run your laptop direct from the mains WITHOUT the battery plugged in.
Good luck

Check in the lower left hand side of your keyboard. You should see a key wth the letters FN. You will need to press FN + F2 in order to turn the WiFi on and off from the keyboard.

Hope this is helpful.

How do i turn the internal speaker back on in my Dell Inspiron B130 laptop?


It will be a combination keystroke--use the Fn key at the lower left side of your keyboard and one of the other keys (usually a special function key) that has a picture of a speaker on it.
The other thing you must check is the sound properties icon in the control panel and be sure your speakers have not been muted.

Flashing orange light, third from the left on the front edge, left side. Just replaced the battery yesterday.....


I had same problem. PC wouldn't even start at all. New cord & battery.Computer repairman said- remove battery, remove electrical power (& unplug the cord from power source :) don't electrocute yourself), then press the start button for at least 30 seconds. I pressed it for about a minute. Replace battery & power, (don't forget to plug the cord into electricity again), and press start button. That resets something inside.
It worked!!!! I couldn't believe it. I almost gave it away before I called repair guy. Yikes. :)

Battery - blinknig range light


The orange blinking led indicates battery charge critically low, which could mean the battery is failing. The batteries are considered a consumable item and carry a 1 year warranty. Average life, depends mostly on usage. 300 to 500 discharge/recharge cycles is about average that translates to about 18 months use or so.

My Dell B130 laptop screen occasionally has horizontal lines accross the lower 1/3. I can correct by tapping the side of the screen a couple of times. Any suggestions please?


It sounds like your LCD is starting to go out - the screens are usually sectioned off in thirds or quarters, so when a third or a quarter starts having trouble, it's probably time to either replace the LCD, or replace the computer - because of the age of that laptop, it's possibly going to be cost prohibitive to replace the LCD. You can, however, hook it to a desktop monitor and continue using it just fine.

How do u turn on and use wifi on Inspiron B130?


There should be a wireless icon next to the time (lower right hand corner of your screen) that you can right-click on and Turn radio on. Hit the function(blue button lower left) and F2 if there is a tower on F2, it may be a differant F number on the top. If that doesnt work, right click my computer and click manage. Then Device monitor, and then click the + next to network adaptors and make sure the wireless symbol doesnt have a symbol on it besides the green chip. If its red its disabled, right click enable. If its yellow you need a driver for it, find it on Support.Dell.com and install the driver.
