The second light from the left in the lower left hand corner of my Vostro 1510 is flashing. It looks like it might mean the battery is charging - ie it has a lightening -like symbol in the middle of the icon. What does this mean please?

A flashing orange battery charging light is a failry universal symbol that means the battery is detected, but NOT charging. Usually, this means the battery has gone bad. In some cases, a slow orange flash means bad, a fast flash means very very low charge (or vice versa)

For your laptop in particular, go here for official illustrated documentation on the battery lights and meanings :

I am having issues with my laptop Dell Vostro 1510. Getting a black screen and white cursor in the upper left hand corner.


The error code indicates that the system is not able to access or detect any Hard Disk Drive.
If comfortable you can try the following:
1. Open your laptop following the below guide
2. Look for the Hard Disk Drive
3. Remove it from the system
4. Re-seat the Hard Disk drive
5. Re-start the system

If still the HDD is not detected I am afraid to say that the Drive is gone bad and needs a replacement.

Kindly feel free for any further clarification or assistance.

Press power button nothing comes up on screen, however, the num lock icon lights up and flashes, the caps lock icon also lights up. Dell Vostro 1510.

The star icon (*) means flashing LED, the bold circle means on, the circle within a circle means off.
The LED's that they are referring to are the NUM, CAPS and SCROLL.
It appears that you have a problem with your LCD. Try connecting an external monitor to your laptop. If you get a display then your LCD display panel needs to be replaced. If no display then your motherboard needs to be replaced.

The battery symbol and the bottom left of my dell vostro 1510 laptop keeps flashing orange and blue. what does this mean? i have unplugged the charger but dont know the reason for this. please help me....

Normally if the battering symbol is flashing while AC Power is connected this means that there is a problem with the battery and/or the charging circuit on the computer. I woould recommend that you contact Dell support to see if your battery is in warranty and can have it replaced. Note the battery normally has a one year warranty but you can purchase extentions on this.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Make sure you have the correct drivers installed for your OS and make sure that both wireless and bluetooth are enabled in the system setup. To do this, boot into the system setup by rebooting your computer and tapping on F2. On the left pane, look for Wireless (navigate using the arrow keys) then hit Enter, then navigate to bluetooth, make sure the setting is set to ENABLED (complete instructions for navigations and options selections should be illustrated on the lower portion of the setup screen). Once ENABLED, reboot into your OS and go into to control Panel open the bluetooth icon, make sure your external Bluetooth device (phone/smartphone, etc.) is set to discovery. Search for the device to see if it is detected.

The Bluetooth Icon will appear in the systray (lower right corner of your desktop task bar. Right click on that icon and then select the option you need. Make sure you enter the same device code in both the laptop and the device you want the computer to connect to. Hope this helps FixYa!
