I have a dell Inspiron 8000 that is dead. Was working fine last time used. After pressing the power button The Hd light will flash a few times. There is a few sounds, And you can see a quick bleep in the screen and then nothing. I have tried a different power supply, a different battery, removing the cd drive & 3.5 floppy. This is just out of the blue it was working fine last time used. and this time it wont do anything. Anyone help!!

    the problem is that it won't turn on at all and that the battery won't charge either. the battery indicator light will blink orange a few times then blink once green over and over again.

There should be a video output on that laptop. hook it up to an external monitor and use the keyboard combination of keys to toggle on the external monitor and watch to see if you get the same issue

Charging light is flashing


There are two possible causes for this issue:
1) Your dell 9400 charger is malfunction
2) Your laptop dc power jack is loose or dead

Possible troubleshooting step:
1) Borrow a compatible dell charger to plug in your laptop, if it works without any issue, it means your dell inspiron 9400 adapter need to be replaced.

2) If the compatible dell 9400 charger won't work normally, the problem may lie in your dc power jack.

Hope this will help.

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.

Dell Inspiron E1705 battery light flashes 4 amber lights, then 1 green. The battery seems to charge.


The ambar lights are warning you the battery is becoming to dead, it means in a short time, if it has not happens now, the battery won't retain the charge anymore, it is time thinking in a replacement if you use your laptop without plug in the power outlet.
