    I figured out it was my RAM cards not making a good connection.

After you reseated the memory did you have the same problem or are you now having another issue.

Also do you see the Dell logo when you turn on the system. If you do try to press the F12 to get to the boot menu. Once there try running the Onboard Diagnostics and let me know any error codes you get.

Hi,

We could resolve this by many testings, we cannot give direct solution immediately.

Initially while booting do you see any screen? like DELL logo. Try tapping F2 or DEL key the moment you turn on and check if you can get into BIOS.

What does diagnostic lights mean in dell studio 1535? How do I understand what the problem is by looking at the flashing lights? For instance, what is the problem if mute and volume up lights are blinking...


I have seen questions about the diagnostic codes (volume/mute LEDs) on Dell Studio 1735 1737 laptops where the Mute and Volume up lights stay on while the Volume down Blinks. So far as I can tell, by searching the web, no one has posted the meaning of these lights.

Well here is a link to tell what the light codes mean. If your system has power but is not performing a POST just check if the mute, volume up, and volume down multimedia buttons are lit in a sequence indicating a system problem.

Here is the wesite to explain those POST failure codes.......

Hey i have a dell studio 1737 and one of my soft touch keys is lighting up and it will not pay any of my music in my media player


On my Studio 17 I know there's a bug where the Volume Up/Down/Mute soft touch buttons would flash, and my speakers would not work while it was flashing. A simple reboot usually fixed the problem. Try that and see if it will make noise after a reboot.

Dell Studio 1737 --power button is broken. Is there another way to power it on?


friends ... i discovered a way that you can power on the dell studio 1535 easily ...

first of all you know the power button .. it's now working ( or stuck )
in the other side of the labtop, there's a wifi button, when the labtop is already shutten down, you can press it and it will give a light then shuts down the light in the button, that means that it gives power, now to complete the process you should know the touch button in the left side that means Dell MediaDirect ( touch control button of the dell studio ) ..

ok, Now, do exactly what i'm telling you :)

1- when the computer is shutten down, plz press the wifi detector button one press
2- it will give a light then shuts then gives light again for a longer time.
3- when giving the first light for a short time, do not wait, press the media touch button quickly, continuesly and separetly.
it it doesn't work ... try it for many times tell you know when exactly to press the media touch button

then you'll see that the labtop starts as if it was in sleep :)
thanks :)

When i plug in my dell studio 1737 in i get a blue light then 4 amber blinks and then a blue light. Does anyone know what this might be


Most likely the battery is failing. Boot to BIOS (F2) most Dell Systems have a battery health indication there.
