Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook

1 Answer

Power problem I have a 3y.o. laptop. About 1 year after I purchased it, I noticed that it would not power on unless I pressed the power butto about 3 or 4 times.Then it gradually became worse.It is now out of warranty. I only use it plugged into AC power.If I leave it on for long periods of time and then shut it down I cannot restart the laptop for 8 or more hours. Today it took about 18 hours to be able to restart.If it is powered on and I remove the battery,it still works fine.Any ideas?

It's possible that the connection between the power button and the motherboard is becoming worn. Does moving your power cable (especially the part right near the back of the laptop) help at all? A common problem of laptops is that the pin in the cable or the AC jack inside the laptop becomes worn.

Acer aspire zg5 battery not charging


If your laptop computer runs normally on your acer aspire one zg5 ac adapter, but the battery won't charge, please try the following troubleshooting steps:

1) Remove the battery from the system.

2) Look at the connectors in the bay and on the battery for signs of physical damage.

3) Check the battery charge by pressing the status button or image on the battery near the LED's. Note: The lights indicate the current amount of charge on the battery. If all the LED's come on when you press on the butto, the battery is fully charged. If fewer lights are lit, then the battery is partially charged. If any lights flashm or blinkm there could be a problem with the battery.

4) Reinsert the battery; puch until it locks into place and the latch snaps back to the locked position.

Yes you can set up an RMA "return merchandice authorization" with the manufacture for 1 year date of purchase. Best Buy can pull up your purchase and print you a new receipt.

Sudden power shut down/will not power up


Try these steps :


1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
Note : Please see that there are no external devices or cables connected to the Notebook.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and do NOT connect the battery now.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.

If the Notebook doesnot start fine, we may have to need a Desktop monitor to check whether the issue is with the LCD, Graphic Card or the Motherboard itself.

Connect a Desktop Monitor to the VGA Port of the Notebook and press FN + F4 key to get the display on the Desktop monitor after the power button is pressed.

If you get the display on the Desktop monitor, the issue is with the LCD of the Notebook.

If there is no display either on the LCD or the Desktop monitor connected, the issue can be either with the Graphic Card or with the Motherboard itself.

Confirm if the Notebook is in warranty or not.

There are some known issues with few HP Pavilioin Notebooks installed with AMD Processors.
