This is a very strange and disturbing problem,I hope your adapters are the genuine product not some sort of "no-brand" replacement.
you can download or buy diagostic tools that will tell you how your pc is operating.
Certain operating systems have these tools built in (Linux for example)
It could be the case that your pc model is suseptable to this problem (a design Fault)
Your luck y not to have damaged you pc,permenantly

Dell Inspiron 1300 Of front left four lights, the third is flashing red


I believe that is the battery light indicator saying that the battery is depleted. If you've attempted to recharge the laptop, I'd put my money on a bad AC Adapter. Try a different AC Adapter. Dell laptops are very picky, so I'd recommend acquiring a Dell-brand adapter to ensure it will charge your battery.

How do you do a factory reset without a system recovery disk on a dell 1300 inspiron laptop


for the computer reset or windows? computer reset: disconnect everything ( adapter, battery, etc) then hold the power button down for 30 seconds, connect adapter and turn on. windows: try to get an installation disk if you do not have one of the same copy that's on the computer, run but shortly into setup there is an option for system recovery, run it ( win 7 is listed as "repair my computer")

Have a dell inspiron 1300 new battery was off about 2 weeks,plugged back in get slow blinking green light after all night wont come on when i push power button ???


1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

You will probably find, that the power Jack on the Mother Board has fractured the solder joint, this is a common problem. You may have to get it to a shop.

No power leds. My Ac adapter is new with the right voltage coming out. I have to keep on unplugging the power cord then the green light comes on my Dell Inspiron 1300


If the adapter is new or OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Dell inspiron 1300 wont work from the AC adapter


Is the laptop working without the battery, directly on AC. Have you tried using another charger or battery to see if its charging.
