This is a bad news, but dont worry. we have a solution to it.

1. Check if you see any light on the adapter.

1a. if No, then try a different wall outlet, or a different charger.you may also need to try to reseat the charger.

1b. If yes, then check if you plug in the adapter does the light remain on or turn off.

2. If the light turns off, then the socket on the motherboard is shot,

If thats the case, then you can take the laptop to the local repair shop and he can soulder that for you at a nominal price.

3. If there is still no light on the computer whatsover, try to turn on the laptop with the battery, if no go. then try to reseat the memory,

4. If the laptop is totally dead, then you may need to take the laptop to a repair shop right away to get it fixed.

5. if you hear any beep sound or any indication of light, then you may try reseating the battery, adapter and the hard disk drive,

and that should resolve the problem

Hope this works for you.

Best of Luck!

Please rate this solution, if you find it helpful. :)

Thanks.

Won't Charge


If it's not a recognized charger it'll stop charging the battery and try to run on the charger alone. If the peak draw of the laptop is higher than the charger output, it'll go right back off.
Try removing the battery and see if it'll boot on the charger alone.

Computer just died.. no lights whatsoever. power


Take out the battery and try to start from the charger - if it's the same then you had a major hardware failure , most likely your motherboard has died. You need to take it to a repair shop for a precise diagnose and repair.

When you press the start button nothing happen not light or start up


First remove the battery and put it back in, you want to make sure it has a good connection.

Next you want to check the power adapter. If it has a built in LED light, it should turn green when plugged into the wall. If it does have a light and the light will not turn on or it blinks, replace the adapter. Next, plug the adapter into the computer, does the LED light change? Example, the LED light was a solid green, when you plug it into the computer it blinks. If the light does something along those lines, then there is a problem with the laptop itself.

If the power adapter does not have an LED light, then you need to use a Multimeter to check if the adapter outputs the right amount of power...which should be around 12 volts.

If the battery and power adapter pass the tests, then you are looking at a hardware issue in the laptop. From your description of the problem, I would guess the motherboard has died or that the charging jack on the motherboard came loose and needs to be replaced or re-soldered.

Two things that would stop the light from coming on, No Power or Motherboard is broken.

I have a inspiron E1705 that will not power up. I have reseated hard drive, memory, and removed all external hardware and tried unhooking internal battery. What else can I do?


Try to unplug ac adapter from the laptop not from the wall, if it is has a light on it then the adapter is good.
Plug it back in the laptop if the computer doesn't give you any light or if it gives you but dies down within seconds you'll need to replace motherboard. But if the computer turns on without any display press Fn+power button while computer is off Diagnostics should be running then after that, an error code will be prompted. if your still under warranty the best thing to do is contact Tech support for your laptop.

Dell Inspiron 2200 Charger Malfunction


Try to turn off the computer and remove the battery from the bottom of the notebook. Turn on the computer with just the charger plugged in. If it doesnt turn on. you may have a bad power port.

If it has no power/charging issue since that happened except that the indicator light doesnt turn on when you plug in the charger, you may just need a bios update. Click here. That's the bios update for the inspiron 2200 from dell's website. You should have at least 30% charge on the battery and the ac adapter should be plugged in so you can run it. The computer will restart and will come back normally after this. I'd suggest that you backup your files before running this.

Laptop died!!!


heyo....if you have to litterally hold the plug at the back of the computer...you will need to have the jack wires fixed. There should be a light indicator showing that it is plugged in and recharging what you hold it....if that turns off if you let go, it is the jack....that is a flag to get it repaired.......or use a lot of duct tape. :-)

Turn on


Have you checked your power adapter with a digital multimeter? Maybe run it by your local radioshack or computer super store if you dont have a DMM and see if someone can check the voltage on it. Maybe your adapter died, then the laptop was running on battery until it went dead.

Another quick check, remove the battery all together. Plug in the ac adapter... does it turn on? does it show any lit led's indicating it is plugged into the wall? try wiggling the connector at the jack on the laptop, does that light any led's or cause power to be restored?

I CANNOT OPEN!!!


Hi, Try running you laptop with the battery and the AC adapter. If by plugging in your adapter there is no light indicator likewise or no powering up, then presumably there is a problem with the power supply circuitry in the motherboard. Normally the laptop should work with just the adapter, just the battery or both the battery and the adapter. If it will not perhaps your best bet is to seek professional repair service since this would require opening the motherboard. In most instances, this involves an smc fusible link, regulator transistors or even just cold solder or loose connections. Hope this be of some help/idea. post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
