Question about Dell Studio 1737 Laptop

1 Answer

My laptop will not respond to the power button being pushed. It is not the battery or the power cord or the source. The touch pad of buttons at the top of the keyboard is lit up, but nothing else works. I think it may be loose connections within the system, but I'm not sure. What are the possible problems?

It could be a few things, and some of them, of course, tricky. The power button may be disabled due to windows loading part way, and hanging up. Since the keyboard lights up, I'm inclined to think that the power button in ok, and I'm leaning toword a software/registry/windows problem. Does the fan come on when you fire it up, and does the unit initialize at all, i.e., do the lights on the keyboard come on at that point? If so, you may have a bad hard drive, or software issue. If you take your laptop with you, there is a chance that there is a loose connection within, cracked solder joint, things of that nature. I would take it into a computer repair shop, and see what they think. I'm inclined to say that reloading windows might work, but not sure, and that's a drastic move, so it's kind of a last resort.
Wish I could be of help more, but this problem will require a degree of expertise I cannot give. Hope this helps, however.

Janice, This is info from Tomsguide.com

Laptop is powered up (green power light is on) but the on button does not respond!and is not switching on


Try the "power drain" procedure to fix your laptop:
  1. disconnect the power cord from the laptop
  2. Remove the battery from the laptop
  3. press and hold the power button on the laptop for about 30 seconds
  4. Insert the battery back in to the laptop
  5. connect the power cord to the laptop
  6. Try to start the laptop normally by briefly pressing the power button.
Good luck

My ACER 5570z will not start up. When power cord


You most likely have a broken DC Jack on the motherboard. Thus, the battery cannot get a charge and the power supply is not making a connection to the system board because of the broken DC Jack.

Good Luck

Touchpad won't work on my Gigabeat F40


Mine did the same, touch pad became erratic then stopped working, I could still access everything when linked to a computer. Then all stopped, on power up I got a 00000010 or 0000020 error and nothing.

I popped the end caps off, removed the two small screws holding the back on and found the strap of wires connecting the hard drive was almost completely dissconnected. Pushed the connector back together , reassembled and now all working
