Question about Dell Inspiron 9300 Notebook

1 Answer

Inspiron 9300: When the computer is turned on, a symbol of a lock with the number 9 flashes, but nothing comes on the screen, there are no beeps or other sounds. The screen remains black. All of the solutions I have seen for a locked computer have something to do with logging in or restoring information. I have nothing on the screen to work with.

Security unlock?


try pressing the buttons:

There are 3 lock symbols on the keyboard:
- the NUM LOCK that has the number 9 in it
- the CAPS LOCK that has the letter A in it
- the SCROLL LOCK that has the arrow down in it

- NUM LOCK is always turned on by default

On boot up a lock symbol with a '9' is lit & nothing else happens


the "9" inside a lock means that your Num Lock button has been pressed. If all you see is the ">" then maybe you are looking at what's called a DOS prompt, and I have no idea why that would display. Try holding the Power Switch for 10 seconds and restart your computer. Hopefully things will be better, and you know where your Num Lock key is.

Is this locked with a bios or Windows password, and is this a new or used machine?

NO POWER AT ALL


Remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter. With the AC adapter unplugged from the system, plug it into the wall, see if the power LED comes on. If it does, plug it into the system and see if it goes out. If the LED never comes on, or goes out when connected to the system, replace the AC adapter.

If the LED stays one, see if the system will power on and give any indications of power at all (Flashing Caps Lock, Scrool Lock, Num Lock LEDs) If no power indication with a good ac adapter connected, then the motherboard is the next item to replace.

Either item listed above can prevent the battery from charging. So the battery is the last item I'd replace unless the system turns on with the battery out of the system.
